Who Am I?

Electra. Nice to meet you! I’ve been a creative writer for around 17 years – only marginally published, I’m afraid – and I currently work as a freelance digital content writer. A recently completed BA in English Literature at UEA only increased my awareness, curiosity, and appetite for bookish things. And, voila, this blog was born!

Curious about my publications?

Roa Seeksbook 1 of the Aerieti Chronicles of the Fall fantasy series

Bumba Queen Weave… short dark fantasy ebook

Familiar… short dark fantasy ebook

Mind the Teeth… free short fiction

Burst a Busker … free short fiction

Now, back to Book Breath!

How Are Books Selected And Reviewed?

Fiction, fantasy, and science fiction attract me the most. I look for debut novels of quality and originality, whether their authors are completely new to the scene or simply writing in another form or language for the first time. A book has to jump out at me in terms of title, cover, plot, theme, or anything in between that makes it stand out from its fellows.

Then I examine the key qualities of each book. What makes it special… My perception of a given work may not be the same as another reader’s, but I hope to provide a sense of what to expect from every reading experience. And I don’t review books I don’t like. So, if they’re on Book Breath, they’re definitely worth diving into, at least, for the reasons provided.

What Are My Goals?

  1. To promote writers who are new, in one way or another. They deserve as much attention as celebrity authors, if not more.
  2. To explore and share the history, industry, and concepts of literature.
  3. To expand Book Breath into a literary hub, especially for new writers. Getting noticed – let alone published! – is a tough business and every bit of support can be a blessing. Stay tuned for exciting opportunities to come!
