Masterclass: the app

Have you ever heard of Masterclass? I'm talking about what it's really like and whether it's worth the money.

My office set up

I've been wanting to share pictures of my current office set up for a while now but never seem to be able to catch it in daylight - I'm a night time person, OK? The good news is I finally managed to do it! In the words of Anakin Skywalker: Yippee! (That reference will surely … Continue reading My office set up

Paperback Writer…

I feel like I've been harping on about this quite a bit this past week but, to be honest, when you don't have anyone else advertising you kind of have to become your own annoying publicist. One of my short story series, Etta!, is finally available in paperback WORLDWIDE. It's a fun thing to think … Continue reading Paperback Writer…

Avoiding Bad Sponsors!

It happens every now and then; I'll receive an email from a company asking if I'd like to review a product.

I don't necessarily believe I could earn a living wage … Continue reading Making a wish

Pros and cons of writing fiction

I'm trying, desperately, to get myself into gear with writing. I had a great year in 2016 for writing new stories but I'm stuck at the moment. I've been up and down and all around over the past couple of months which has left my brain a little bit deflated so I thought, whilst I … Continue reading Pros and cons of writing fiction

Self Publishing

For a long time I had the mind-set that self publishing wasn't really what I'd consider 'published'. To be fair I still, in a way, think this. It's not that self publishing is a cop out or a sign that you're a bad writer, it's just that I strive to become published by a publishing house because … Continue reading Self Publishing

Let me introduce… myself.

Hi gang! I'm currently enrolled on bloggers 101; a course run by WordPress to give helpful hints and tips on how to make a blog better. Today's assignment is to introduce ourselves... now, the first thing I want to say is I have no desire to make this blog super successful but I do want to … Continue reading Let me introduce… myself.
