How To Create a Program Booklet


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). And having multiple email subscriptions which, let’s be honest, most of us never have timeContinue reading “How To Create a Program Booklet”

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?”

So my recent viewing has included dramas such as ‘War & Peace’, ‘Dickensian’, ‘Humans’, ‘The Bridge’, ‘Detectorists’ (yes, I know it’s comedy, butContinue reading “Genre – should we pigeonhole our books?”

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. Just think: you could hop into your TARDIS (surely the most recognisable time machine since HG Wells’ comfy armchair) write five thousand words whilst hovering in no-time (a.k.a. ‘the void’ or the ‘time vortex’) and be backContinue reading “I NEED A TIME MACHINE!
