Are pre-orders worth it? Should you be offering pre-orders on ebook platforms such as Kindle, Kobo, and Smashwords?
There is an exercise that is useful for generating writing that I sometimes use in my art practice. You listen to a song, or look at a piece of art and write what comes to you, inspired by the art.
I wanted to share another poem with you today. This is another of the poems I wrote for my poetry class at Uni. I love ghost stories and was a huge fan of The Mediator series by Meg Cabot. I firmly believe ghosts are real but what if we can’t see them? Or maybe someContinue reading “Poem: Ghostly Stalker”
What’s the first book you ever bought? The first book I remember buying was a paperback copy of A Little Princess by Francis Hodgson Burnett while on a family holiday to Singapore.

My Mom gifted me woolContinue reading “Goodreads Giveaway Has Ended”
