I usually read more than one book at a time.
Lately I am reading Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. I am also starting in on new-release One by Leigh Ann Kopans and almost-released Eyre House by Caitlin Greer. (Jealous?)
In fact, Cait recently sent out a teaser ad for her soon-to-be-published novel. Want to see?
I don't think I've ever blogged about this before, but I am so impressed by authors who can self-publish well. I think we've all been lured in by the curiosity of a self-published book before, only to be disappointed by bad writing and worse editing.
To me, those disappointments just make it even more exceptional when writers like Leigh Ann and Cait and so many others can balance writing a good book, getting it professionally edited, commissioning or self-designing a great cover, rolling out promotions, and all the rest that comes with publishing on your own. Frankly, self-publishing is not for everyone, and the people who knock it out of the park ought to get an extra little tip of the ole hat.
So what are you reading these days?
