So this is post numero uno for my Urban Fantasy website – and not going to lie… a little scary. However, “nothing ventured” as they say.
Allow me start with an introduction to my website, why I started it, and why I can’t wait to share it with you all. My website is dedicated to exploring the best authors in both the Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance genres. As a huge SciFi Fantasy reader, I stumbled upon this genre by accident. I picked up a book called Armed & Magical by Lisa Shearing because – well, the name was hilarious.
The novel didn’t disappoint and I realized I was actually reading book two of the series. I scrambled to find the first book, Magic Lost, Trouble Found and instantly fell head over heels for this series.
I realized that this was a genre I had never tapped into before and quickly started looking for other authors and books like Lisa Shearin. Um… didn’t find much. At all. So, I actually emailed Lisa Shearin (yes I did) and she gave me a list of some great authors to research.
Fast forward 2 + years and I started my own business building websites for small businesses. I can’t believe I hadn’t thought about this before, but I knew this was my chance to finally start blogging about something I absolutely love.
And…. voila! Urban-fantasy.info was born. It seems almost sinful that I can sit at home during my breaks at work (ahem – only during breaks – I promise) and write about my favorite genres. I will be continually adding my thoughts and musings about various books, upcoming book releases, and authors that I have long loved or just discovered.
I would love to hear your thoughts so please don’t be shy in replying to my blog!
