Plot twists that never stop coming…

So, a FB post inspired me to write this off-the-cuff post. It is mostly about TV rather than writing but I guess it could be applied. You see, the thing is, I think the problem with TV dramas these days is that they have plot twist after plot twist, until you can’t quite remember who’sContinue reading “Plot twists that never stop coming…”

The Guilt of Writing

I have realised recently, both from my own experience and from hearing about the experiences of others, that there really is a lot of guilt going hand-in-hand with writing for some authors. It can sound fanciful to some, but it to others it can be something which dries up the flow of inspiration and makesContinue reading “The Guilt of Writing”

Writing that second book…

Hello all, I am back from the land of editing for a while and have thus been writing a few blog posts as well I should considering how I’ve neglected to it so! Something randomly funny for you: As an introduction back into blogging I thought I’d write about something I’ve recently realised. Since havingContinue reading “Writing that second book…”

How to edit a novel

My goodness it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. It’s all that editing I’ve been busy doing. It always takes longer than you think and though enjoyable it’s even better when you’re done. I say that knowing full well I am not done yet. I have finished my second draft though, and the novel MissContinue reading “How to edit a novel”

My Next Novel

I have actually already done a short blog post about my next novel on this link here, plus you can read the first (very rough and I have already edited it much more in a word doc) chapter of it here. I wrote a one-sentence synopsis of it a while ago: Julia Rotherham must keepContinue reading “My Next Novel”

What to do with reviews

I owe all the ingenuity of this blog post to my husband. He came up with a great idea of what to do with the reviews for my book The Widow’s Redeemer, and before you think it, no, he did not say ‘Don’t read them’ or ‘Throw them in the bin’. You see, it isContinue reading “What to do with reviews”

The Aftermath

On the lead up to the launch I was concentrating hard on blogging about my book, not that that’s a bad thing, but now the book is officially ‘out-there’, I am sat in the unladylike position of a resigned slump, a sigh escaping my mouth and a crooked half-smile playing about my lips as IContinue reading “The Aftermath”

Next Big Thing – Or so they tag me…

So I have been tagged by Mary Thornell over at The Bottle Imp. Being tagged as The Next Big thing means I have to answer questions about my Work In Progess (the story I’m currently writing). Think of it like an interview, except I’m interviewing myself….to be honest, I talk to myself quite a lotContinue reading “Next Big Thing – Or so they tag me…”
