If you ever publish a book, make sure it’s a hard cover.
Otherwise, it will be tearable.
For those of you still here, welcome to my web page! Now you know what you’re in for.
I love books, all books. I’m probably reading a book right now. There’s nothing in the world like a good story, and nothing makes my day better than curling up under the blankets with some hot tea and a new book. I’ve been reading and writing fantasy stories for as long as I can remember and there’s nothing I enjoy more than being able to share amazing novels (and some terrible attempts) with others who enjoy books as much as I do. There’s something truly magical about the way we tell stories – through books, graphic novels, and even movies and television – and I enjoy examining every element of a how a good story is put together as much as I do experiencing them for myself.
I wanted a place to share amazing fantasy novels (and a few other genres on the side) and everything that I love about them: the magic, the creatures, the imagination, and the utter fascination with the fantastical.
Thus, this blog was born.
Here Be Dragons is an homage to the people of ancient times, who feared dragons lay in wait in the undiscovered borders of the maps. As a student of publishing and an aspiring writer, I wanted a space where I could explore the tropes and twists that make great stories so unforgettable, and even look at how some less-than-stellar works could be transformed. To see what great new finds or old treasures can be discovered, hidden within the depths of the local library or the bowels of the internet.
And to subject all of you to some truly terrible puns.
I apologize for nothing.
So welcome to Here Be Dragons. Good luck, and let’s get started.
