J.C thought that I should probably introduce myself to everyone, so here goes.
I am a writer, reader, and reviewer based in little old New Zealand. I have been writing for a number of years – primarily for myself, and for friends who love reading my work.
I have been roped into reviewing books on this blog-site in conjunction with J.C. She pointed out to me that two book-reviewers on this site is better than one, so I have found myself joining her here. If you would like to read about me or my writing journey, then please visit Parchment Place. It’s a pretty nice place to visit, even if you aren’t interested in writing, as such.
Due to the amount that I read, I recently signed up to become a reviewer with NetGalley. I knew that I wanted to blog my reviews, but knew that I didn’t want the reviews clogging up my Writer’s Blog space. Therefore, I have joined this lovely little blog, just to house my reviews. (Thank you, Cassie!)
At this stage, I work full time, writing an urban-fantasy trilogy, and reviewing draft manuscripts. I have been reviewing writer’s draft works within my own networks on request for a number of years now, and would like to review and promote new pieces of work that I come across as well.
I am also on Goodreads, and the reviews will be posted there as well as directly with the wonderful publishers who have given us their Advanced Reading Copies.
I read a lot of thrillers, young adult books, fantasy, and general fiction. Every now and then I also try my hand at romances, but to be honest – sometime the steamy bits in them make me gag, and I find myself page-skipping over those parts! I’m not judging though!
Please feel free to leave a comment, or drop us a note – as we would love to hear from you.
All the best, fellow bookish people… I look forward to seeing you around. My first book review on here will be up shortly.
