Here at Authorsreading.com you will meet a plethora of new author talent like Wanda Pyle, Kaylin McFarren, and Christian Thompson along with seasoned authors like James Patterson, JK Rowling, Stephen King, Anne Rice, and Jennifer Weiner. We are a new and innovative repository of literary excellence. We mainly focus on getting new authors, introduced to readers. It's a big, big world in the book publishing industry and many, fabulous books, and authors go unnoticed because of the mainstream news organization's penchant of reporting only on books published by the few remaining traditional companies. Ironically, most of the traditional publishing companies are also owned by the same News Outlets that do the reporting. Our focus is to make it easy for small publishers, self-publishers, as well as large publishing houses to introduce their new authors to book lovers everywhere. We want to introduce the next JK Rowling whose work was first rejected by traditional publishers or the next Louis L'Amour - rejected 200 times before his work went to press, or like Madeleine L'Engle whose book "A Wrinkle in Time," was rejected by 26 publishers. We want to help the persevering writer to be discovered. Incidentally, we only publish reviews of books we think are GREAT.
Bookmark and visit us often to get the latest scoop on the hottest books.

His father?s military assignments introduced him to diverse cultures and views as he adapted to life in places like Blackstone, Virginia, Washington D.C., Leesville, LA., Wrightstown, N.J., Tirrenia, Italy and Charlestown, N.H.. A principle lesson he l earned at an early age from his frequent moves from the north to the south was that social truths are simply beliefs unchallenged and pragmatic to those who espouse them. He came to recognize how easily views are shaped and forged into irrefutable truths by your peers, authority figures, and vocal vacuous celebrities. This exposure to the divisiveness of often-opposing views from one locale to the other taught him the need of a good command of history to help analyze and make conclusions in social matters that are so subjective.
He has had many life experiences that have helped shape his views of the world. He has been an Army Officer and seen death many times. He has lost both his parents and an older sister to cancer. Beside being in the military, he has experienced various other careers including selling insurance, being a general contractor, managing a restaurant, running a car rental agency, being a software programmer and running his own consulting company.
