Welcome to A Dribble of Ink!

Why should you care about this blog when there are so many others out there? I’m sure you’re asking yourself that very question right now.

Well, it’s kinda simple… here at A Dribble of Ink I hope to bring some cool stuff to the table that will not only help me satiate my desire to geek out and talk about something I love (reading and writing), but I also hope to help other people out, too.

The fantasy publishing market is an extremely competitive place and there is a lot to slog through, what I hope to do is help out some of those authors who I appreciate and admire. I want to help those authors find the audience they deserve, especially when it comes to all the new and exciting authors entering the field right now. I’ve been reading fantasy for a long time now, and I can’t remember a time when the genre had so many young, exciting voices entering the field as there are now. Whether it’s Joe Abercrombie or Patrick Rothfuss, Eldon Thompson or David Anthony Durham these great authors deserve to have their wonderful books read, so if I help them find even one more reader, then I’ll feel my time has been worth it.

This also means I’m looking to help you, the reader, out, too! Hopefully I’ll expose you to some work you may not have heard of before or otherwise.

Besides all this I plan to do reviews: I have a couple of big ones lined up, including the world’s first official review of Terry Brooks’ latest book The Elves of Cintra; interviews: again, I’ve got a couple of big ones lined up already and my blog has only just launched! Look for Patrick Rothfuss and David Anthony Durham in the near future; Author retrospectives: I’ll look back at the careers, lives and works of some of the writings most well known figures; even musings on the art of writing: I know a few writers, both published and struggling who can help put the world of writing and publishing into perspective.

Hopefully I’ll be able to excite and intrigue you enough to add me to your RSS feed. You may not agree with everything I have to say, but hopefully I can at least make you think a little.

But most of all, I’m just pushing off on my voyage now, taking the first step of my thousand mile journey, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the journey takes me… and hopefully you’ll be along for the ride, too.

    Hey, good job Aidan! Looking forward to how things pan out with this!

    PS: Someone needs to pull a prank on Shawn S. Why? He’s been telling people you’re a woman. Yep. I said it.
