About (We Call Her Git)

leave a comment »

Once upon a time, two people who loved books had a daughter. They read to her from her earliest moments, and she went into little childish ecstasies the very first time they took her into a book store. Now that daughter is technically an adult (but still childish) and making plans to write books of her own someday. In the meantime, she’s doing a lot of reading.

Preferred Genres: Fantasy, gratuitous romance, historical.

Favorite Elements in a Good Book: A bit of everything (sap, humor, suspense), pirates, snarky characters, magic use, powerful women, manly men who are not macho jerks, satire.

What Gives Her The Right To Criticize Books, Anyway?

As mentioned above, I’ve been reading all my life. And, I write.  In fact, I’m doing my undergrad in creative writing, and I’m slowly building up publishing credits. (Very small ones, but, hey.) I am working toward becoming a novelist, and doing this by taking writing workshops and studying literature. So, I’m not unfamiliar with the Writing Game and its rules.

More importantly, though, I am a reader. Published books are an end-product, and should be recieved as such. Not a draft, not a manuscript, a finished product. They should be as near perfect as they’re going to get. I’m going to treat them as such. That makes me the consumer, and I expect a certain level of quality in what I consume.

So , who are you? 

I’m not famous, and I won’t point m’self out on this blog if/when I am. If you want to track me down, go for it. But I’m not going to advertise.
