When did you start blogging?
I started this blog September 27, 2012
But I have a host of other blogs and websites. This is my first book blog though.
What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Pretty covers! No, really – just finding new books to love.
What is your favorite book(s)?
I am a SF junkie – the Takeshi Kovacs series (Altered Carbon, Broken Angels, and Woken Furies) by Richard K. Morgan are all my favorite books. But I also love me some paranormal romance.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Meeting other cool book loving people.
Q: What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.
I hate the cliffhanger chapter ending when it happens every stinking chapter. I don’t mind it once in a while, but every single chapter is just too much. I don’t care for anything that’s coincidental. I had a coincidence in my second book that my editor was like “Uh, no. That’s dumb. Take it out.”
I kept it in because I liked the idea, but I had to change a bunch of stuff to make it work.
No cliffhangers chapter endings and no coincidences.
OK, let’s hear yours! What author trick bugs you?
