Well, I’ve just registered for worldcon, and received my Hugo awards voters packet. As a writer and reviewer I figured this is a good chance for me to do something relevant for once. I’ll be reading through the submissions, and posting my opinions for them here. Some of the books I’ve already reviewed, so I’ll probably just post a quick opinion on which ones I think are most likely to win in their respective category. I don’t know if I’ll get through all of them before worldcon, but it’s worth the attempt at least.
I think Saladin Ahmed’s submissions are first and foremost in my list, I heard him on writing excuses and he interested me enough that I think I want to give his work a look see.
I’ll be posting my reviews mostly here because I’ve decided that examiner.com isn’t necessarily something I want my name attached to so much. I’ve heard plenty of questionable things about them, and I already have a hard enough time keeping my own blog up, that I don’t want to spread myself too thin. So for the sake of not going crazy trying to keep up with a ridiculous reviewing schedule, which cuts into my writing, I’m going to start posting book reviews here again. I just like the idea of being in complete control of my own writing. Even if I don’t have any guaranteed income from my blogging, I do have adsense set up, and I get a cent ever few hundred visitors or so. Or I get more if people click on the links, but that’s so irregular that that happens, that I’m not going to worry about it. Since I’m not exactly trying to make this my day job, just a hobby that sometimes brings in some money. Maybe. So if anyone feels like being supportive, go ahead and check out some of those links, if not I’m fine with that. I’ll just keep working harder so that I become a blogger people want to support.
