A couple of weeks ago I happen to stumble across this authors work by picking up her first book in the series Druid Reapers. I did not buy Druid Reapers for the reviews, since there were both negative and positive comments about the book. I decided that I should judge the book myself and besides the book was free on Amazon. Besides what do I have to lose?
The book was around 80 pages so I figured that I would be able to get through it quickly and fulfill my need to at least complete a book that particular night. I don’t know if that makes since to you all but I do have OCD when it comes to reading books. I hate having to set a book aside especially when I am in middle of the plot. When this happens I seem to think, dream and obsess about finishing the book. LOL :-).Anywhoo, let’s get back to the reason I am writing this post. So I sat up that night and started the reapers, I was so drawn into the story that I bundle up bed, shut the door and told my family not to disturb me so that I could read my book but if they made anything (as in food) they could feed me through the crack in the door. Once I completed Reapers I had the need to get the other books in the series, I was so addicted to the series that I dedicated my whole weekend to reading it. I just could not let the characters go.
After completing the series I immediately found the author on Goodreads and added her as friend and became her fan and I followed her blog. I needed to make sure I kept up to date on her book releases since I enjoyed the Druid Breeders Series. The same day she accepted my friend add and sent me an awesome comment thanking me for the add. I was completely blown away. Here I am a complete nobody, and the author took her time out of her busy schedule to say hey thanks for adding me and I would love to know what you think about the books. After following the Author I realized she took the time to communicate with all her readers, she really cared what we thought about her books and expanded on many conversations about her books and other books she enjoyed reading. She really enjoys the interaction. For that reason alone I will be a big supporter of her work.
I am writing this post as a Thank You to Marata, for being an amazing writer, an awesome person and for making all her fans feel like we mean something. You are definitely one of a kind, and for that alone I am forever placing you on my favorite author list.
