In another blog. I seethed with rage over Stephanie Meyers’s path to success. She is an author of the Twilight series, it was a paranormal books in the teen genre but was able to crossover to adult. I planned to read the books in order, but its popularity made it hard to request at the library. I was impressed and intrigued. I like to listen to authors get interviewed about their books. When I heard that Ms. Meyers wrote the series so quickly and she had it published I saw red or green. I was so jealous I couldn’t listen to the interview and I doubt I will be able to read the books. Don’t feel sorry for Ms. Meyers, there are other people who love her books and wait avidly for the next.
Another author I don’t care for, is Karen Chance’s book Touch the Dark. I concept was great, a girl kidnapped and raised by a vampire for her clairvoyant/supernatural abilities. I thought it would be a good read, until I saw it was from first person viewpoint. It is hard for me to get into book that are from that narative. I think that is why I burned out with the Anita Blake Series with Obsidian Butterfly. In my opinion Ms. Chances character Cassandra Palmer explained too much of the world she [Ms. Chance] was trying to reveal to readers. Too many times the action was cut so she [ Cassandra] could say, vampires are live like this, vampires drink like this, vampires can do this. This famous person who died of a mysterious death is now a vampire, or did you think this famous crazy person died?. I got annoyed and irritated and skipped paragraphs. I looked Karen Chance up and saw that her book sales were enough to conjure two sequels. I am back in the evil green place.
I know I am being lazy and stupid. Dammit why do I have to find these things out. I am pissed like no body else. I will have to listen to Maroon 5 for the rest of the day. Possible some JRock as well. My music is an eclectic style it has always been.
I am done with dodging my chapter three. It is a major rewrite. Wish me luck everyone.
