I run Functionally Fictional, am an Indie Staff Reviewer for YA Books Central, and am a COO, Advertising Supervisor, Editor, and Writer for Coffee House Writers. I have recently applied to an MFA program with hopes of one day working in publishing, while continuing to write my own books.
Reason for blogging
After following websites like Epic Reads and YA Books Central for years, and not being able to work for them, I decided to make my own website. What started as primarily a blog for reviews by me and a few friends has grown into a full website to promote books. Now, I am fully running the website, managing a team of reviewers, and am also a staff reviewer for YA Books Central (I'm even being promoted to Indie Blog Assistant soon! Functionally Fictional opened up the opportunity for what I initially dreamed of doing!).
