With so much informative content available online, it can be hard to sift through it all to find something really useful that won’t take an age to learn to implement (I’ll be writing a seperate post about that quite soon).

How Many Genres do You Write in?
…. and should you write in more than one under the same name? I don’t know if there is a correct answer to that question – I think it’s pretty much down to personal preference, really. Certainly JK Rowling writes in different genres, and uses different names for each. Although, since (I believe) most peopleContinue reading “How Many Genres do You Write in?”
Lessons Learned: My Journey as an Indie Author

I NEED A TIME MACHINE! (Or, “Not enough hours in the day!” – an Indie Author’s lament)
As a fan of science-fiction, I’ve often thought how useful a time machine would be for a writer.
