Those detail-oriented readers may notice a change to the site’s main menu. The “What I’m Reading” link has been changed to “Books to Read.” This is part of a series of small changes I’ll be implementing over the next few months to better emphasize to potential visitors what the site is all about, and what they can expect to gain by coming here.
As proud as I am of our collection of original stories, including the almost-complete Blood Magic series, our book reviews are an equally valuable asset, especially as the catalogue becomes more and more extensive. Before I started keeping a running reading list, I always had trouble finding my next book to read (and me between books is never a pleasant experience). By sharing both book reviews and my personal reading list, I hope to help other people address that same problem.
With that in mind, the new Books to Read page still features that trio of “what I read,” “what I’m reading,” and “what I’ll read next,” but it’s been expanded to include a reference to our original works, plus links to all of our on-site book reviews by genre, and by reading list over on Goodreads. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to go follow us over on Goodreads. Besides various reading lists, you’ll end up getting early access to all of my book reviews, since I post them live on Goodreads when I write them for the site, even though on the site they might be scheduled six months in advance.
I’m always looking for new ways to improve the site and offer more to readers. If you have ideas, suggestions, or just want to connect about books and writing, leave a comment below or use our contact form. Now, I should get back to writing new stories.
