2022 and all that: a review of my writing and publishing year

2022 has been quite a year - I think we can all agree on that. I've spent a fair portion of it with my jaw on the floor at what the government have got up to. However, that's not what I'm here for. On to the review! It's been an odd year, writing and publishing-wise. …

3…2…1: Past Tense is launched!

It's launch day!

Halloween Purrlock!

It’s my 3-year self-publiversary today! 12 reflections…

I noticed about halfway through this morning, in the midst of running errands and nothing much to do with writing, that today is my 3-year self-publiversary. My first self-pubbed book launched on 1 April 2016 (I picked that date for a reason, honest!), and hey, here I still am. I published a post for my …

How do I measure success as a writer?

This is something which has been on my mind lately, probably as a sort of hangover from all those goal-setting New Year posts. What's the best way to measure success as a writer? Or do I mean as a publisher? Ooh, now that's a different question entirely. There are so many things you could focus …

I’m now on Booksprout! Come and find me for an ARC of Halloween Sherlock

What does that mean, I hear you ask? Well, Booksprout is an Advanced Review Copy (ARC) managing service, and as I'm not very good at managing ARCs, I thought using a system to keep track of them would be a great idea. So if you like the idea of joining my ARC team and getting …
