I started writing a seriously in 2014 and consequently, self-published called the Last Prophecy Series. My reason remains sound; it was a twenty-one novella and book fantasy steampunk series. Not exactly a trendy topic, succinct series, or the kind of project that would be over in a few years. But I was determined and it remains to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Getting an editor taught me a… Read More

In everything that’s going on at the moment I know some of you are more scared than you’ve ever been before.   There are a million things going on outside our control. Fear eats a hole in our stomachs as we twitch aside window curtains and wonder if just one more visit to the store will bring home a fatal virus.   We lived with our parents and grandparents dread of another… Read More

  I’m having a rant. Want to know why? Because people are being bullied. Being threatened. Being made to feel unwelcome and unwanted in the #WritingCommunity.   I wish this wasn’t the first time I’ve spoken about how I’ve seen or been guilted in the #WritingCommunity about what I do with my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages, but I’d be a damn liar.   Anyone who’s followed me would know I have… Read More

        We talk a lot about writers block and what to do about it. All the different tips and tricks, and outright clownish tom-foolery in order to just sit down and shuffle twenty six letters until we can finally finish the fugly dumpster fire we somehow have to convince people to love as much as we do.   Anyone who’s written more than a few pieces, or those *naughty*… Read More

I want to talk about the elephant in the room. The green one. The one that sits behind the screen and judges. Both their own self worth and what they have accomplished. A few months back someone sent me a screen shot a tweet that criticized authors for talking about writing many words in short periods of time and that the writing is probably trash. As a prolific sprinter, and knowing that… Read More

  The Writing Community on Twitter has become the largest, fluffiest blanket of love and communication on Twitter. Ask any writer or creative and all sorts and they will assure you that the community on Twitter has made them a better writer. With people posting success and losses, times of trial and celebration, there are any number of people to reach out to for help, encouragement and support. But for such a… Read More

I wrote a book in 25 days. Lets cut straight to the facts as they are; I don’t have kids I live in a rural area I have a short commute I worked fucking hard at it   I love the book, I think it’s a great stand alone story and for me that’s a rarity. It sprung into my head after I halted work on the Last Prophecy series because buying… Read More

Its come about thanks to a Twitter post that my Book Tour schedule is full for the rest of year, and my Author Interviews are also heavily booked, so I wanted to ask that if you are a writer with a website you help too. So, where to start? This is both the easiest and the hardest part. You just get started, you open your website and start posting. Six months ago… Read More
