Went to see the movie City of Bones last night with and enjoyed the it. It is sad how many critics are bashing the movie; my advice is to ignore them and judge for yourself. Go see it.
Recently I just finished the book Inheritance by Paolini and was thoroughly disappointed by it. I found that the author used the same premise to conclude his series that Terry Brooks did in the Sword of Shannara. If you have read both, then you know what I mean.
While it is hard at times not to sound like other authors in your writing, we do need to strive to not be too similar. Our stories must strive to be unique!
I will be releasing Duality soon, and I am working hard to make it unique in its genre. I believe I have succeed in this goal and hope that my readers will enjoy it.
