I finally built up the nerve to design my blog! I’ve been meaning to design it since I started, but between finding motivation and simply not having the time, it’s been tough. This is probably the first weekend since Comic Con that I’ve had the opportunity to do absolutely nothing, so I was glad to finally get to chance to focus on it. My Photoshop rustiness made it take a little longer than I thought it would, but you live and you learn. I blame Adobe for updating practically every 5 minutes!
I hope this has a more Urban Fantasy feel than the original default version. I plan to provide many reviews, news, and general thoughts this fall. So if you’re a friend on Goodreads, twitter, an author (yes, one has dropped by), or just someone in general that loves the genre, I’d love to hear from you. This is YOUR URBAN FANTASY afterall! Feel free to subscribe on the link to your write…errr right.
Happy reading! I’m about to get back to it myself…
Hello, fellow Paranormal and Urban Fantasy fans! I figure I will share a little history about myself. For the past 6 years I’ve been an avid fan of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison. Aside from catching up on all of the Anita Blake series, I didn’t really follow much else.
All of that changed this past January when I purchased a Kindle. So far I have read 22 new books. If it’s good enough, I will devour it. Needless to say, my love for reading has been renewed and I’m excited to have a broadened my horizons a bit. Based on this blog’s title, it’s pretty easy to tell that I like vampires. Since branching out to other series, I can safely say you won’t see reviews for only vampire series. I love other series, but after a while I do feel the need to read a good ‘ole vampire story. And no, I did not discover how great vampires were until Twilight (though I don’t consider them as actual vampires; you need fangs, sorry!). With that said, I’ve been a fan long before this craze and will be a fan long after it fades.
The plan for me will be to post all of my reviews–past and present–for related series I have read. You can expect a majority of them to center on adult Urban Fantasy and Paranormal series more so than the Young Adult genre; however, I did read quite a few Young Adult series as a teen, so I may include those in my blog for nostalgia. I may also review other genre and media including tv series, movies, manga, and games. I may even review products on occasion.
Over the next few months, I have a few goals including:
- re-designing this blog
- reading and reviewing series, both new and old
- preparing for San Diego Comic Con this July
And maybe not in that order, haha. You can imagine that my schedule will get pretty hectic. For Comic Con alone I will be spending a good deal of time working on creating my costumes (thank goodness I’m collaborating with my friend, and she’ll be doing most of the tough stuff). On top of that, I would like to meet several authors who will be there that may ring a bell to you:
- Kim Harrison
- Chloe Neill
- Patricia Briggs
- Christopher Moore
While I have not read the works of the latter two, by the time of the con that won’t be the case. Here’s hoping they won’t mind my crazy costumes! I hope to provide any coverage I can for those of you who cannot make it, and maybe even meet up with those of you who will be there!
Decisions, decisions, what should be my first blog topic? Of course, the Kindle! Stay tuned!
