Another Writer’s Tip

I’m a bit too lazy to do a whole list of tips in one hit, so I’m just going to post them as they occur to me. Today’s little ramble is how I increased productivity. I normally work from home in my purpose-designed study. It has a pretty coral coloured wall, some cute pink and teal […]


Stuck in the middle…

Last night, after drinking some cider, I decided to do some writing. I am almost done with my fourth novel, but I also have a fifth novel that I find much more interesting right now – but only because I’m not supposed to be working on it until I properly finish the fourth one. Anyway, […]

Marketing Your Book

I’ve finished writing my book. Now what?

This is a massive topic to cover, so I’ll just be touching on a bit of everything for now. If you want to know anything else, please send me a message, and I’ll do my best to answer. I’ve noticed since publishing my most recent novel, I haven’t been able to find one resource that […]

How I’m Surviving Nanowrimo

Romance Writing Structure

Even though I’ve written two novels, I still feel a bit clueless when it comes to structuring one. I find the middle particularly hard to deal with, especially when trying to incorporate a romantic relationship into the story. So I went hunting and found this cool post about the seven story beats in a romance […]

An awesome resource…

I have just discovered the Writer’s Café at Kboards, which has a great community of indie authors. They even have an Aussie Writers thread:,158050.0.html The people there are all very friendly and helpful in terms of sharing advice, and I hope to relay some of it here as I navigate this very crazy world […]
