Holidaying as an author

When most people take a vacation, they set down tools, leave the office, wave goodbye to their colleagues, and turn their mind off from their work until they need to step back into work again. Not so with us authors. Our office is of the mind, and that means that it is almost impossible to completely abandon and try to switch off while you … Read More Holidaying as an author

Medieval vs Regency

I started out as a medieval writer; someone who knew and loved the medieval period completely and utterly. I studied History and English at the University of York, UK, and the majority of that ended up being medieval and Early Modern. I revelled in what I learned of the medieval period, and I truly loved learning about the history, the politics, the food, the … Read More Medieval vs Regency

So what is it that everyone else … Read More Four Reasons No One is Buying Your Book

Self-publishing is not a modern idea, although it certainly has become easier through the introduction of print on demand and epublishing. Sadly, it has somehow garnered a reputation of … Read More Considering Self-Publishing?
