The Eloquent Page – Blogger Interview

The Eloquent Page

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Paul. The written word is my passion in life so back in July 2010 I launched The Eloquent Page. I’m addicted to all things genre related. Horror will always be my favourite but science fiction, fantasy, crime, thrillers and historical fiction are great too. Basically I’m prepared to give just about anything a go! As long as publishers continue to publish books I’ll continue to read and review. Hopefully you’ll enjoy my nonsensical waffling 🙂
