Fancy a coffee?

I have decided to make some changes in my life, I have written about this before and anyone who’s read my post knows that to spend more time with my daughter and get some semblance of sanity back I am going to train to become a driving instructor. It’s going to be a long process…

I need help with something

Hello my lovely friends. I need some help. As many of you may know, I have written a novel (I may have mentioned this before) and I sent it off to a publisher who actually offered me a contract to publish it. But the shower of bastards, who wanted to “Partner” with me by charging…

Where to go next?

I might be on the cusp of getting my first book published and it has got me thinking about a sequel. When I finished the first novel I did start a follow up to it but I have changed it so much since then that it no longer fits with the original story. So I…

It’s all over but the waiting now

I have done it, I have taken the plunge (again) after my last post, which any avid followers will have read (ha, I crack myself up at times, I’m not that popular :p). I have spent the weekend pouring over the manuscript for my novel and this morning I have sent it off to the…

There could be good news coming

My last couple of posts have been about the fact that I am really struggling with my writing just now and that I have had no motivation, ideas or anything to do it. I was about ready to give up on the whole idea. Well today I received this email from the publishers that I…

I’m just done

I am thinking about giving up. Recently I have had no motivation to write, I have had no time to do it, and everything I have tried to write has been garbage. It is feeling forced and like I’m not enjoying it anymore. Writing used to be an escape for me, a way to deal…

I’ve taken the plunge 

The bullet has been bitten. GULP! Last night I finally did it. I took the first step. After two years of work, of writing, editing, fear, heartbreak and determination I finally took the plunge. I have sent my sample chapters of my book to a publisher. Now the waiting begins. This one is a test…

Acceptance and Rejection

Am I setting myself up for a fall? That’s is when has been running through my head for a while now. As many of you will know I have been working on my novel for two years now, and I am almost at the point where I am going to start sending it off to…

When I saw today’s daily prompt it got me thinking about the novel I am writing and that it deals with being conquered. they main character of sam does a lot of thinking during the story and a lot of fighting but here is a little taste of his inner thoughts before setting off on…

Beta Readers wanted.

I am looking for three or four Beta Readers to help me with my novel. Ideal I would be looking for someone with experience in writing and editing to read over my manuscript and check for any errors and plot holes. If you are interested contact me and let me know if this is something…

Year one

I set up this blog exactly one year ago at the suggestion of a friend of mine. We were both using an app that allowed you to post your stories and different things on it but it was heavily censored and frustrating as hell. So I set up this blog so that I could post…
