I’m a firm believer in Paulo Coelho’s philosophy, “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” For me, this rings true when it comes to my writing dream. Ever since I found the courage to voice my dream to the world and work on making it a reality, there’s been a palpable energy shift that’s spurred my endeavor. I’ve met reader and writer friends from all over the world who have rallied around my work and served as an essential support system, I’ve won writing contests, I’ve been invited to make guest appearances on many wonderful blogs, and I even had the opportunity to contribute to the award-winning writers’ site, Writer Unboxed, which was a dream come true in and of itself.
Recently, another one of these “universal conspiracies” began to take shape, but I’ve had to keep it under wraps until now. A few weeks ago, I was invited to be part of something BIG in the world of books: Reader Unboxed, the reader-centric sister site to Writer Unboxed, which is launching today!
If you love to read and are always on the hunt for a good book, today is a VERY exciting day. Reader Unboxed is not just another book review site, it’s an interactive community with contributors who are intent on finding “unboxed fiction”, that is, fresh works that bring something new to the table.
Be sure to stop by www.ReaderUnboxed.com to meet all 8 reviewers (including me!), check out the unboxed fiction we’ve been reading, and enter a slew of giveaways!
Hope to see you there…
Note to readers: my first review is scheduled to appear on Reader Unboxed next Tuesday, 10/25.
