Hello and happy Tuesday! We are so happy you took the time to join us!
Here is this week’s challenge:
What are you reading now and why did you choose it?
I am a romance writer and mostly I read within my own genre. But Stephen King is such an incredible wordsmith that I also take the time to read his books. In fact, it was “Salem’s Lot” that made me want to be a writer in the first place. It opened up the possibilities of telling stories that would come alive and creating characters that breathed.
His latest, “Fairy Tale”, is my current read and I am impressed, as usual. He breaks ‘the rules’ so effectively, I feel as if I am actually listening to Charlie Reade tell me his story. Mr. King’s use of language is amazing and reading his work is an absolute education in ‘voice’.
I am generally not a fan of horror, but his writing is far and away so skilled, I am drawn in to the story even if the subject matter is not my first choice. Am I his ‘Number One Fan”? No. But I am a fan and I am grateful when I am able to read a master at work.
Now let’s hop over to the wonderful Jenna Da Sie and see what she’s reading…
