As you all have noticed, I stopped doing book reviews about a year and a half ago. With full intentions of coming back to it within a few months of having left.
Only, it didn't work out that way. Life got in the way. I worked on my own manuscript for a few months, then ended up with a few injuries that changed the course of my life.
I decided to come in here today, because of all the work that did go into this blog for the time I was working on it, and say a big thank you to the publishing companies and authors that let me be part of their book tours.
Without the written word, society would not be what it is today.
There are literally thousands of bloggers like me out there, being given the opportunity to read the works early, to interview the authors and state our opinions.
Many go through hundreds of books a year doing this. My hats off to all of you in the blogging world who shuffled through novels you might never have stumbled upon otherwise.
Every novel, every story is another window to someone's world.
Being on both ends of the window, I have to say getting it to the point of being a book is not easy. For some of us it takes years of rejection.
I praise anyone who has held up and not caved under the first few rejections.
