First Blog Ever

This is a project that pretty much fell into my lap at the busiest time in my writing career – a week before the launch of my first novel. At this point I hardly remember where I heard that Amazing Stories Magazine was coming back from the beyond but I somehow got my hands on the info packet that the new publisher was sending out to interested writers. The idea was that upwards of 70 people would provide weekly blogs on about a dozen subjects in the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres. At this point they’re up to about 50 contributors submitting weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

I was certain that I had absolutely no time to work on a weekly blog (let alone anything to say), but I’m very attentive to what the universe throws at me so took it on anyway since what I had been lacking, as a writer, was exposure. They say you have to face your fears to get anywhere and since I’m curious about who “they” are, thought it might be a good idea to check it out in case they showed up.
