This is me. ^
I'm fairly boring, actually. I'm a reader, a reviewer, a writer--
That's about it. Oh, I have a not-so-great job at the moment. I mean, I love the people I work with and my bosses are pretty nice, but it's not what I really want to do. (It's minimum wage, for a start.)
If I ever become rich and famous, I would not want to live in a castle.
I imagine it would be quite scary and lonely--and cold. o-o;
I would definitely:
-get a small, cozy home with a biiiig cozy library
-establish a scholarship fund for my alma maters
-contribute to the tuition of my siblings' college education
-INVEST (I actually hate shopping. Except for food. And books.)
I love books of all kinds. My favorites usually tend to be space opera, modern gothic, medical mysteries, cyberpunk, regency romance, and fairy-tale retellings. Recently, I've become eligible to receive ARCs, which means I get to review books that haven't even come out yet!
It's like year-round Christmas!
What else? I have a B.A. in Psychology. I speak passable Spanish. I like cooking and baking. I drink waaaay too much coffee and tea.
I also read. A lot. Presumably, you do, too.
I can be a harsh critic, but I try to be respectful. If not to the book, then to the author, at least. I don't respond to trolls, and I don't support authors that are known to troll. I don't like the entitlement that seems to walk hand-in-hand with certain authors getting published.
I'm sorry, but fame is not an excuse to be a jerk.
However, most of my readers--of both my books and my blog--are lovely people, even if they don't happen to agree with my opinions, and I, personally, haven't found this to be an issue so far.
Please, let's keep it that way.
Be respectful. :)
