In the space of a month I have gone from zero copies of HORNS to three. I didn’t really set out for it to be that way, it just kind of happened.
The first one is the paperback I bought at my local bookstore. The second is the movie tie-in paperback edition that Harper Collins sent to us (us being my husband and myself), completely by surprise, to review for our website – Cinema Lowdown. And the third is a first edition signed hardcover I won in a contest from BitLit – which so awesome – because I am a fan of Joe Hill and I love that he is so involved with BitLit.
I don’t think I talked about this earlier, but this year I have been making an effort to read more books. I have always been a book reader, but over the past couple of years I realized I had been reading less and less.
Two main reasons for this:
- There are a lot of books I want to read and I want to make sure I get to them.
- I have been working on writing more fiction in addition to the non-fiction and professional writing I have been doing.
- All the authors that tell you that reading is just as important as writing are absolutely right – more on that to come in the future.
So, I am starting HORNS as soon as I finish typing this. Stay tuned for my thoughts after I finish it.
