Hello all, I’ve been working on the sequel to my fantasy The Edict (2017) which is currently entitled The Wall. The second instalment in The She Trilogy; you’ll get to catch-up with your favourite characters from book 1 and meet some newbies too… The Wall working-blurb: In the aftermath of war the Kingdom of Emrilion is rallying,Continue reading “‘She would disappear and no mistake.’ – Chapter 1 of The Wall revealed.”
Largely, I am a practical person. Or I like to think I am. I like logic, common sense, and using nouse when making decisions. Sometimes I pride myself in it, though I am also inclined to make silly decisions and all my logic then falls down. But generally, I’m not into touchy feely stuff. That’sContinue reading “The sea”
Historians + time travel = happpppppyyyyyyy Pip This book really is a silly, raucous and a tremendously entertaining adventure. I love history and so the idea of time travelling historians going on adventures and saving the day really is always going to win with me! Facebook advertising…really? It turns out, Facebook advertising works. You see,Continue reading “Jodi Taylor’s Just One Damned Thing After Another”

As I’ve mentioned (probably too much, I always talk too much), I have been endeavouring the follow a book a month challenge this year. You may have seen me chattering about it on social channels…

I’m not a fan of the modern day mantra, ‘just do what’s right for you’. Controversial, I know, but it doesn’t seem logical to me. I may be being a bit Vulcan about it (yes, that’s a Trek reference and I’m going with it), but it seems to me, only thinking about oneself isn’t doingContinue reading “Selfish writing”
