  • If you have CAPTCHA word verification enabled on your blog, please take it off. It makes it much more difficult for readers to comment. Please look at Allison's CAPTCHA Eradication Post to learn how to get rid of it.
  •  This is a blog hop!
  • Weekly question: 

    Q: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, retellings or pulled-to-publish fanfic?

    A:   Yes, I want my reading to be original and fresh.   I appreciate an author coming up with something no one else has addressed.   That's one reason I haven't written a book, although someday I hope to.  I think it is a cheat to the reader to  even publish two books that are very similar or retellings.

I don't really mind as long as each book has a unique voice. But I definitely see what you're saying about keeping books fresh - I couldn't read the same story re-hashed over and over again.

I agree. Although sometimes is really hard to find an entirely new idea, because it is like everything is already out there. But there's always ways of making your own impression.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following via GFC.
