I love to hear from authors, and readers alike.  For the readers, tell me why you love the written word, and what kind of books you enjoy. Authors, tell me about your struggles, your work, and why you choose this avenue as a career. Why you write the genres you write, etc.  Reader and authors alike tell me what you like about review sites and what you don’t. I want to know. Being a small fish in a large pond I am constantly trying to look for ways to reach readers and find authors with books to review.

I’ll start. First with why I love to read. I think that reading is the best way to explore without ever leaving the comfort of your home. Reading can take you places no other transportation in the world can do. You can visit other worlds, and go on adventures without risk to life or limb. *grin*

Today everyone seems to be so in awe of movies stars and reality shows. I am in awe of authors, and reality is overrated. I can get all the reality I need just by stepping outside my door, reading a newspaper, or turning on the television.

In a society of instant gratification, the one thing that still stops us rushing here and there is the power of a good book. I love that today we can get books streamlined right to our e-readers, and that we are now able to get almost anything out there that’s published with the click of a button. It also saves a lot of time trying to find storage space for all of my books.  I will admit if I have a choice between holding a book in my hand and downloading it I still apt to choose the book, especially if it’s a partially favorite author.

I know my red wasn't running away! LOL. It is a fascinating story when you really break it down, so much sexual undertones going on with a lot of fairy tales. I guess the original authors were just more subtle in their erotica...
