Part of the query process will be finding comparable books and authors to include in my pitch and query. Unfortunately, this can’t be done without putting in the time to read. I do what I must for my art.
I recieved a great list of names to start with from Lindsey Boruker (@goblinwriter) on twitter. Here’s a link to that thread if you are interested in seeing the suggestions.
It’s that time! I need to read books to find comps for mine. I have no idea where to begin. I consider my story high fantasy, but with strong romance plot line.

This page will be a reading log or journal for me to keep track of how popular authors and books compare to my story and writing style. I haven’t read all the books on this list. Look for updates containing my thoughts and impressions (not to be confused with a review but the links are affliate links). (January 13, 2019)
