I’m not sure what you’d call this. Is it a ramble? Is it an announcement? Is it a blog? Or is it perhaps all three of them?
Whatever it is, today I wanted to take some time to talk about a new project that I’ve started work on. As you might have guessed from the title of this article, it’s got the working title of My Life in Books, and it’s basically a memoir that I’m planning about my life as a writer and reviewer.
Of course, a lot of that will be told through the books that I’ve written and the books that I’ve read along the way. It will also include stories about the authors that I’ve known and met along the way. It actually turns out that the books that I’ve read and the circumstances in which I’ve read them do a pretty good job of telling the story of my life.
I have no idea whether anybody will be interested in it, but I figure that it’s important to me and at the same time, it’ll be interesting in and of itself for each of the authors who are mentioned along the way. I’ve also been on my fair share of adventures like when I went to York Literature Festival for SocialBookshelves.com and when I sat on the shadow panel for the Young Writer of the Year Award.
It’s a project I’ll be working on throughout 2018, but it’s unlikely it’ll be edited or released until 2019 and beyond. There’s also a lot more of my story to come, I hope. Still, I wanted to give you the heads up. I’ll do my best to keep you updated!
