This is the very first post on my blog. (I didn’t mean for it to start today, but as I waded through the process of setting up the blog I hit “publish” before I was completely ready. And I can’t figure a way to undo it. So here we go.)
Let me first introduce myself. My name is Susan Leigh Noble, and I am the author of the fantasy trilogy, THE ELEMENTAL. I started this blog to write about a few things that are important to me. But before we get into that, let me explain the title of this blog.
I chose “Into Another World” because that is what books do. They allow you to enter another time period, another world, another life. You can do anything, be anyone when you are pulled into a book. You could be a soldier during the Revolutionary war, spend time on a pirate ship, explore a distant planet and so much more. There is no limit to the worlds you can visit.
As a reader, I love the feeling of being swept up into the story. And as an author I hope to be able to provide the same experience for my readers. So I chose the title “Into Another World” because for me that embodies what I love about books.
But my life as an author is also balanced with my life as a wife and mother. And really if you think about it when you become a parent, you are thrust into another world. No longer are your days centered on what you want, but now include your children. You have entered a world where your children’s school and activities become part of your daily routine. Becoming a parent changes everything. So for me, the title “Into Another World” also encompasses my life a mom.
So on my blog, I plan to write about both of these things that are very important parts of me. I will cover topics about writing, self-publishing and on raising my children. I hope you find some of what I have to say interesting, amusing or helpful. I just can’t guarantee it will happen all at the same time.
