Every now and then we are introduced to people who better our lives, who make us want to be all we can be, reach for the stars, or climb every mountain. Lucky for you, I am not that person!
See that insane person in the picture up there? That’s me. Your friendly neighborhood narcissist. I’m sarcastic, cynical and a bit cranky. I own a soap box so big that sometimes I have difficulty stepping down off of it, and I’m about 94% certain I have multiple personalities.
I don’t sleep enough, and I read more than any person should ever consider normal. I have anger management issues, (especially when I’m stuck in traffic) and have an unhealthy obsession with my Kindle.
I am a story lovin’, zombie obsessed, Dystopian junkie, book-in-hand, iPod freak who took her passion to a whole new level.
Or…if you like the short version: I’m a reasonably intelligent person who does moderately stupid things on a semi-regular basis.
You’ll either love me or hate me. You be the judge.
A few of my favorites!
CLAIMS TO FAME
From AOL news!
KindleObsessed post lists of books offered for free. Smart e-book users snap up those books and then, if they like them, review them online. Titles fly around the Internet, capturing attention on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and Borders. Obscurity is a book’s worst enemy; publicity — of any kind — is a book’s friend. The one thing we know in the publishing business is that word-of-mouth sells books better than any advertising or promotion, and free e-books do a powerful job of starting the “buzz” that can give a book its chance.”
“I recently discovered Misty Baker’s review blog, KindleObsessed. She’s doing a really fantastic job with the kind of thing I’m trying to avoid: reviewing self-published Kindle authors.
I asked Misty if she’d like to do an interview for my blog. She graciously agreed.
DAVID WISEHART: I’m very impressed by your KindleObsessed blog. What was the genesis of this project?
MISTY BAKER: My husband David was actually the one that started KO. (God bless him.) I had been devouring books like candy for years, but never had an outlet to talk about them, so one night he plops down on the couch, creates the skeleton for my page and says, “Here…you want to talk about books? Write it down!” (I think that was his diplomatic way of saying, “I love you baby…but shut up.”) A few months and about 20 reviews later I get this random email from Stacey Cochran asking me to be a guest panelist on his Ustream channel, “Book Chatter.”
