Women in Modern Media (Books, TV, Games)

In modern media, women have beome something of a debate. To sexualise or not to sexualise? Sex sells, according to directors, producers and almost everyone working in the media industry, and this is a problem that has been an issue in books, television, and video games.
This is a book blog, though I feel it is important to address this issue across all media platforms: books inspire other media, and other media inspires books. Do you think this is an issue? I'm going to be debating this especially with regards to video games, that I have grown up with.

How to Start a Blog

This topic comes up rather frequently, and the answer really is just as simple as signing up to Tumblr, Blogger, Wordpress or whatever else takes your fancy. As you might know, I run my website and blog out of Blogger. Why? Because this blog was originally called Miss Overture and it was my  general blog for, well, everything. Eventually it evolved into Overture Writing and that lasted all of a day before it went straight back to Miss Overture. Now? It's my primary author website, has its own domain and is now called Kristin James. Wanna know how I get 1000 plus views a month? Usually gaining an additional 100 per new post? Read on!
