My name is Mark Rivera. I live in New York. I am an author and writer as well as a reviewer too. I have been running a home video and TV review website since 1999 called GenreOnline.net. I also do video reviews of statues and collectibles that appear on the companion YouTube channel too. I have been a contributing writer for Halloween forevermore.com. My first book The Final Arbiter, a work of science fiction, was among the top ten science fiction and fantasy novels of 2011 as chosen by readers in the 2011 Tor.com Reader's Choice Awards. I am working on my next book and working on a variety of personal and professional projects.
I want write thirty new pages at least in the first draft of my second novel entitled The Lift. Thirty pages are more challenging than the average layperson realizes. It is very easy to write by instinct. However when one applies craft, it takes longer and it is more of a challenge, especially when taking the fact that my formal training qas in writing drama and not fiction.
I do not have a formal fundraising goal other than to raise as much as I can to benefit disabled and minority writers, which I fall into both categories as well.
Alas, the Clarion Write-a-Thon has ended, with $12,907.77 raised so far! However, we are still accepting donations. Thank you for your support!
