It’s been a while..

Well hello.

I know I’ve been quiet of late but rest assured I’m here.. I’m reading.

Some of you will know I’ve had an issue with nerve pain recently in my right arm..and I’m right-handed so giving my best to a review has been hard to do over the last few month.

With my accent speech recognition inst a viable option ha.

The good news is I feel I’ve turned a corner.. thanks to the wonder that is amitriptyline which has completely stopped the nerve pain. Still not fixed but at least it’s manageable now.

Bumper week to follow on my blog while I catch up, lots planned, Q & A’s, blog tours etc and I just can’t wait to get back into the swing of it.

I’m fully on track for deadlines set just need to catch up on all the non specific deadline reviews.. I really do apologise if you are still waiting.  Give me a nudge (nicely ha)  🙂

Hope all of you have a great weekend.

I was never the best reader in the world..

I thought it might be interesting for you to find out how i came to setting up this blog and how I’ve found the authors i have. I would be very interested to hear your own story’s

As a child i struggled with printed format, my eyes would get tired and blurry. Even after getting glasses i still struggled.

Up until a few years ago i basically never read any books other than what i needed to get by in life, instruction manuals etc.

One day i decided to treat myself to a tablet for twitter/emails and so forth. I found the kindle app and decided i might as well give it a go. I travel to work on the bus so have plenty of free time.

Not being a big reader i decided to look at the free books listed on Amazon under the genres i liked. I thought this was a good starting point and it introduced me to authors like David Dalglish and Michael R Hicks. Both authors offered the first book in one of their series for free and i liked the idea of getting into a series on books rather than just a stand alone novel.

Next i found Robert Southworth, I’m a massive fan of Spartacus and he had recently released a story about him and it had me hooked. This then led me to Gordon Doherty and his Legionary series

From there i headed to twitter, followed these authors and all of a sudden other authors were following me. I took the time to look at some of their work and have found some authors who managed to capture my imagination perfectly and surprising quickly.

I plan to do a write up of some of my favorite authors so far so keep and eye out for that 🙂

Now after getting sucked in by these authors i found myself enjoying books for the first time in my life. Because of this i decided to create this blog so i could interact with other readers but also to show these authors that their work is appreciated

I don’t know why it took me so long to get into reading but i’m glad i have

As always i welcome suggestions on books/authors i should acquaint myself with so feel free to drop me a line either by commenting below or send me an email davidsbookblurg@gmail.com

Cheers

Twitter Profile for David’s Book Blurg

Well i thought it was time I should have a twitter profile for my blog

I’ll be using the page to reach a wider audience and will tweet my blog posts along with re-tweeting authors with upcoming releases etc.

Feel free to pop by and give me a follow (I of course will follow you back). I’m eager to start following some fellow book reviewers to see what everyone else is interested in and maybe discover some more authors whose work might interest me
