      And don't forget about why readers came to you in the first place--books! Don't be afraid to talk about what you're reading or what books you love or what books you can't wait for. My author friend Suzanne Johnson does a fabulous job on her blog Preternatura connecting with readers over books in her genre. I read books as if it were a moving playing in my head.

To me, i feel like that is the magical part of reading books because only I can perceive/interpret how this book .

    Just can’t do it. If a book doesn’t catch my attention right away or if I don’t like the characters I cast it aside and reach for the next one.

The publication date is Setempber 22nd--and keep on eye on this space to hear .
