Okay, I am admitting it right here...I have been very busy the past few weeks. New books coming out, the Cancer anthology being put together...getting prepared for my Spartan Run. So my free time is at a premium. We all know how I spent last Sunday (as I continue to bask in the glow of the Seahawks' Super Bowl victory).
But I have to come clean and admit that my READING has taken a nose dive. Now here is the irony...as a writer, I depend on READERS. Yet, lately, I have not cracked a spine or turned on my Kindle (except to play a few rounds of Candy Crush here and there). Now, I can claim the defense that I am now very in to listening to audio books. But honestly, that is not the same at all.
So I am throwing down the gauntlet to some of my fellow authors who make the same excuse. How about we start a little Book of the Month club. We take one author and let him or her present the title of their choice and then we read it. Now, we need a moderator and a person to randomly draw the names, so how about one of my non-author friends? That would make it fair so it does not seem like I am playing favorites (me being chosen three months in a row would be a DEAD giveaway..see what I did there?)
So, if you are interested, just give a yelp in the comments section below. I think that, as writers, we need to stop making excuses NOT to do the very thing that we rely on for our livelihood. So...who is in?
