Ever since I was small girl, I loved to read. Being sent to my room was no great hardship, because I could curl up on my bed and read the Famous Five. My love of reading stayed with me, throughout primary and secondary education. I even became a school librarian. The books I read have been wonderful friends. They’ve made me laugh, cry and even snort in surprise. I’ve almost thrown books across rooms because of a character’s death and I’ve dreamed endless ways to bring them back.
As an indie author myself, I know the pain of waiting on reviews or on agents. I’ve opened rejection letter after rejection letter until I decided to do it for myself. I know how much it costs and hurts when my books sits unsold.
So this is where Literary Musings was born. I love to read and some of the best books I’ve read recently, I didn’t know about until someone asked me to review for them. I promote other authors and review when I can. I dislike giving one star reviews, but I do promise to be honest with the authors who approach me.
In other parts of my life, I sew, love anime and manga, roleplay and board game with friends and I nurse a love of puzzles.
