I am a writer of fantasy books. Even though I have been writing for a long time I have just become published. Most would consider me a new author, a newby and most new authors seem to struggle needlessly in the deep waters surrounding book reviews and recognition.
We all look for that ray of sunshine that will set our book apart. Whether it be vampire novels, the romance novel or just fantasy, we live and breath it as if it were alive.
Don't give up hope. The best fantasy books out there began at the fingertips of a new writer and in the heart of romance author. Someone, somewhere had to pick up that first book and say, "Wow what a great story!"
