Castles, Customs & Kings – STOP The Presses….actually….START All The Presses!

Now I have been remiss, no, not just remiss, I have been appallingly, devastatingly, rubbishly, remiss in telling anyone about the wonderful book Castles, Customs and Kings (Madison Street Publishing, 2012), which contains, among the hundreds of finely penned articles, an historical article by yours truly! So exciting, and why haven’t I mentioned this properly before?Continue reading “Castles, Customs & Kings – STOP The Presses….actually….START All The Presses!”

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.

A Pretty Pants Week

So, this week was pretty pants. Although I’ll be posting this on Monday, I’m writing the post now – hence me speaking about a pants week (it wouldn’t make sense if I said it on a Monday at the beginning of the week – it’d be a pretty negative and fortune-telling way of thinking ofContinue reading “A Pretty Pants Week”

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”
