I'm an indie published author with three fiction books under my belt and two more in the series on the way. I'm also working on two non-fiction books regarding writing AND reading.
I regularly host book tours on my website, with the reviews cross-posted on Goodreads, Amazon, B&N, etc.
Reason for blogging
I started reviewing even before I began blogging, and it was primarily because a book had such an impact on me, I had to share it with someone, ANYONE. In this age of booming indie publishing, I also feel it's important to share HONEST reviews so that those with talent can rise above those who can't even be bothered to use a spellcheck (or who just steal work from other authors).
