Happy New Year everyone! Do you like the new look? I felt I needed a fresh look to celebrate the new year. I hope 2009 is a great year for everyone. Now, I mentioned that I had something special planned for my blog starting January 1st. And here it is: the 12 Gods and Goddesses of writing.
Once a month, on the 1st, I will focus on a particular author who's stories are absolutely amazing. As you can tell by the title, January is going to a female writer. January is dedicated to: NJ WALTERS!
NJ Walters is one of my all-time favorite authors. Her stories are so alive and vivid, they transport your mind and soul to other worlds. My most favorite of her writings is her Tapestry series. It was what I first read of her work and has held me enthralled ever since. Her Dalakis Passion series is a fantastic vampire series. And I happen to love vampire tales.
Her single title, Amethyst Moon, is spectacular. It takes place first in Egypt, and then on another world. NJ has a lot of other books and series as well as the start of a new series from Ellora's Cave. The next book in the Tapestry series, Threads Of Destiny which is the long awaited tale of Marc Garen, will be out the middle of this month. I'm really looking forward to that.
So, NJ Walters is January's Goddess Of The Written Word! If you want to check out any of the amazing books she has written, click on the link I have up for her website or visit her blog at http://www.njwalters.blogspot.com/ for the latest on what she's up to. Her stories are so worth it!
