The zigguratt may not be as popular as the pyramid, but I find it just as intriguing. This pyramid-type structure, while not classically used by the Greeks, was a symbol of man seeking the divine, which is a theme common throughout Greek myth.
I’ve started reading a book called Jake Bowers Versus the Firebird by Laryssa Waldron. It was recommended to me by a good friend, who recommends all the best books. It starts out with a scene in a ziggurat, which immediately caught my attention. I can’t say much about the book as I’ve just started, but I can say this–I enjoy it so far and I want to keep reading, which in my mind is the mark of a good author.
This brings me to another point. This is the end of A to Z, and I’m trying to find a purpose for my blog. In the past I’ve posted updates on my own writing, and I’m also a member of Clean Teen Publishing where I’ll post announcements and giveaways of their super fabulous books, but I want to do something else worthwhile, something that can help other people like me. This is what I’ve decided…
I want to host a new author twice a month. The only requirement is that these authors can’t be well-known, and most will probably be getting their start. I’ve been doing this writing thing for four years now, and I’ve learned a lot, but I’ve also learned something that surprised me.
Good authors aren’t all published by the big companies. Good authors struggle to get their writing out there. They aren’t well-known, their books aren’t being made into movies, but their writing is compelling and imaginative. Their stories are heart-warming, and I believe these stories will be remembered in the mind of the reader for years to come.
I won’t be able to do this by myself. I’ll need help getting the word out, and I’ll also need lots of new followers if I want this campaign to be a success.
The book I mentioned by Laryssa Waldron will be my first to review. If I’m correct, this is her first book to publish. So PLEASE support her!http://www.amazon.com/Jake-Bowers-Versus-The-Firebird-ebook/dp/B00J5QOEWK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398871422&sr=8-1&keywords=jake+bowers+versus+the+firebird
I hope to have many more authors to host! So please, if you aren’t following me, do so. If you’re a new author, contact me. It’s our own fault if we don’t help new authors get their stories out there.
