What is it they say – every minute someone creates a new blog that no one will ever read? Well, my minute is today at 4:20 p.m.
It took me a long time to decide to start blogging. The subhead above pretty much explains why. I love reading novels. I don't enjoy reading biographies of novelists. For the most part, I don't think writers are nearly as interesting as the books they write.
On the other hand, as I learned from places like Verla Kay's Blue Boards, I do like having writers for friends. Even online friends. Even the kinds of friends I only know by their avatars. I don't need to know about their troubled childhoods, or what they had for breakfast, but there's a more casual level of intimacy I really enjoy. That's what I'm hoping to have here.
Plus, I need somewhere to tell you about all the giveaways I'll have. Don't you love free stuff?
I'll talk about writing, natch. Publishing, both traditional and self-publishing. (I play on both teams.) Topics relating to my books – which, since I write fantasy, historical, romance, crime/suspense and a few other genres, can mean just about anything. And words. Words. Golly, how I love words...
In the next post, I'll introduce you to Laura L. Sullivan (that's me!), LuLu Sullivan (that's me, too!) and Sullivan Lee (me again!)
After that – free books!!
Oh, and please follow me. I really need a few followers to boost my self-esteem. I know, “followers” sounds like conformist minions to me, too, but all it really means is that you’ll find out about my new books and giveaways before anyone else. If I could change it to buddies or cohorts, I would.
