So after considering whether to copy all my blog posts over from the front page, I've decided against it. Here's a summary;
New blog site created at the beginning of the year (2014).
Social networking looks too political for my blood. Later I give in and start a Facebook page. I did apply for my Goodreads page, but I never heard anything back from it so have left it because I've heard it's actually a minefield there and authors are better off NOT claiming their GR pages.
Had an inspiration from a dream, just like H.P. Lovecraft. Several entries later, this inspiration results in the release of Time Shifters, which begins a 10 episode time travel series. The ebook is available on Amazon and the paperback will be there soon, currently available on Lulu.
A post titled Developing a World which I'll repost. This one is worth repeating as it gives readers an idea of the construction of the alternate world behind Time Shifters as it develops in my mind.
Moans about not having enough time to write, to re-edit my previous books so I can re-release them, and dissatisfaction with the old header on my pages which has since been replaced.
Effusing about how much I enjoy writing (more of this will no doubt appear in future blogs).
Glee over my first reviews for Time Shifters and links to http://goodbadbizarre.com and various others that all appear on Amazon reviews now, six of them with 4-5 stars each, yay! I've yet to experience my first negative review, though I'm sure it's just a matter of time. It's great that I got good ones first. Several of them had suggestions or mentions of what they didn't like as well which I'm taking on board.
What I said about it was, "The first review posed a few questions so I will address them in Episode Two. This kind of feedback is very useful because while, for example, it might be obvious to me why a Time Shifter wouldn't call the police when her people are being kidnapped, the fact that one reader raised the question means that others will wonder so it's my job to make it clear."
There have also been mentions of the 'difficult' names of the people in the story, all of which have etymological reasons but show my Fantasy reading background, so I'm making some of the unfamiliar words a little easier in Episode Two and explaining that the name of my lead character, Akalya, comes from Hindu origins and the reasons for her name will become clear early in the second book.
This leads naturally into the last post I did which was about diversity in writing. My characters come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures and as the setting is primarily in modern day Los Angeles witha few excursions to other cities, it's realistic that characters would come from a variety of racial groups, including the main character who is mixed race, like myself.
So, with that summary in place, let the blog continue. Now all I have to do is decide what to put on my front page! Bookcovers are the obvious choice. I like my bookcovers. Feel free to comment on your own opinion!
