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…

Two Year Bookiversary!

You know me, I love a good milestone celebration. This one, in particular, is close to my bitter old heart; the 2 year anniversary of my first self-published novella. It's kind of a bitter sweet celebration because I was so happy to publish this - despite a few spelling errors - but I had planned … Continue reading Two Year Bookiversary!

April Goals [have come and gone]

Is it too late to write about April Goals? Short answer: YES. I had this whole blog post idea to set some goals for last month and guess what? I got some sort of virus which knocked me out for two weeks, going on three! I hardly had any energy to do anything, which was … Continue reading April Goals [have come and gone]

Writing projects!

I realised recently I wanted to start blogging more about writing - something which may not really interest many people [I don't know? Let me know if you are interested in particular topics in the comments!] or be a popular thing to blog about but hey ho! Writing is my ultimate bread and butter thing … Continue reading Writing projects!

Nanowrimo 2017

This is going to be a wordy blog and less pictures, which you're probably happy about because my photo taking has been terrible recently. I am, what we in the industry like to call 'shutter shy'. Wait, did I make up a cool term or is that a term for something else? I feel like … Continue reading Nanowrimo 2017

So you want to write a novel?

I can't believe I'm writing this but... it's almost November, which means it's almost time for National Novel Writing Month [NaNoWriMo from here on in]. I talk about this every year and this year is no exception. NaNoWriMo is a big part of my life and has been for the past six years - this … Continue reading So you want to write a novel?

Making a wish

I feel like I'm always talking about writing on this blog but that's kind of my thing so let's go with it! I'm sure, if you've been following this blog for a while, you'll know my dream career is to be a full time writer. 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

NaNo Prep!!

Yes, it's almost that time of year. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) takes place in November and for some reason I'm prepping like crazy for this one which I've never done before. I normally just make a story up on the day or a few days before and don't plan what is going to happen … Continue reading NaNo Prep!!

I’m published!!

Well, almost... Today is the day I put the first of a series I am working on out into the world! It's currently sitting in Amazon's hands, being reviewed, until they decide to let it go free so people [like you] can download it. Naturally, I'm nervous. I enjoy the writing but the hardest part … Continue reading I’m published!!
