The first draft of anything is shit.

This is something I have to constantly tell myself when writing. Why? Because I am a painfully slow, pedantic, crazed perfectionist who can sit and obsess over a single word for hours. I cannot write a paragraph without reading over it at least three times, only then can I move on and write the next […]

What I’m going to do with my MILLION Dollar book advances?

It’s Monday, so let’s play a fun game called ‘Imaginary Monday’. Today I shall imagine that I’m the next J.K. Rowling. I’m selling books like tasty little hotcakes and everyone is talking about me. And when I say everyone, I just did Ellen last night (she’s not as funny in real life btw) I’m doing […]

What’s in a name anyway: Can a title really make or break your book?

<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/14850849/?claim=vpqcz2ektn9″>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> I’m rather bad at coming up with names for my books, so bad in fact, that my publisher renamed two of my three books.

It’s a fun, romantic comedy series about finding love in surprising- not to mention warm, tropical and exotic– places. (As the covers suggest) I loved the covers individually, […]

My CRAZY path to publishing.

It is a journey that is very different to most people’s, it is a journey that many authors frown on too- I have since discovered to my dismay. They frown and raise eyebrows because I didn’t […]

Someone pass that woman a razor!

The 15th of March might have been an ordinary day for you. So ordinary in fact that you might not even have noticed the little sucker pass on by. But I noticed it.  Oh yes, I did. I noticed it because it was the day my 3rd book was due to my publisher. Perhaps some […]

No seriously, I’m an author!

Writer Had I known that telling people I’m an author came with the same barrage of predictable questions every single time, I might have had the foresight to arm myself with a recorded, automated response I could play every time someone asks… And what do you do? At this point I know I can look […]
