If you want a blog about one topic, this isn’t the one for you. My interests change and I use this blog for all of them. Right now (2017), you can expect a lot about books, running, writing, and habits.
Typical series/posts include:
- Top Ten Tuesday posts (meme credit to The Broke and the Bookish)
- Book reviews
- Lyse Links — roundups of great journalism & interesting articles
- Tired Legs — my ongoing series about running
- Reading Recaps — monthly updates on my reading goals
Why Lyse of Llyr?
Lyse is my name in this corner of the wide, wide cyber universe. Llyr is a figure in Welsh mythology, a name derived from an Irish word for the sea. In Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain Chronicles, Llyr is a sea kingdom. The women of the royal family are enchantresses and the men are warlords.
I do accept books for review. You can submit requests in the comments below or in my email (email@example.com). See my nope-list of genres below. I don’t guarantee good reviews and I reserve the right not to review books even when I receive review copies. (I try really hard to get to them, but forcing myself to read a book if I’m not interested is a good way to guarantee an unfavorable review.)
Genres I probably won’t read: paranormal, horror, Christian (unless really, really good), children’s (flex on middle grade)
I’m a full-time writer and editor in real life and I will consider requests for editing assistance. Please send any questions or proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
