Book Corner Chilling in March

I have been thinking about creating a regular post around reading for quite a while. I love all kinds of books and my consumption is large enough to surprise the heck even out of me at times. In fact, where do I find the time? I don’t know. No, that’s not true. I do know.…… Continue reading Book Corner Chilling in March

Excitement still high

Still riding the wave of satisfaction knowing Unexpected Obsession is out there with a whole new vibe. The best part is that it looks as if the print copy is getting closer as well. I am so excited to have reached this stage that I honestly can’t put it in words. I do need your…… Continue reading Excitement still high

Books and more books

Hi all and welcome to another post, Sorry if this post goes in twice guys but had some technical difficulties.

Reviewing, not the horror you imagine

Last post, among other things I discussed reviews.  For some reason many people shy away from giving these.  Some people just don’t want to commit themselves on paper, some are not sure what to write and some are just afraid to express their opinion.  I’m not an expert but I just put down what I…… Continue reading Reviewing, not the horror you imagine

I was going through some of my earlier blogs from a previous website, and came across one I had written about paying it forward.  It seemed apt considering the last few months.  Having published my novel, I knew it would be a slow process to get readers and reviews.  Let’s face facts. The competition out…… Continue reading

The Rebellion against the letter R

I am currently plagued by the letter ‘R’.  Yes, that’s right, as in the alphabet.  Before you decide I have lost the blog post plot let me explain.  The following words start with this letter: relationships, reviews, rewrites, redo, re-upload, re-wind, release, and reputation, revising, rebellion and let’s not leave out revolution because that is…… Continue reading The Rebellion against the letter R

Self-publishing, reviews and audiences

These last couple of weeks have been very busy, too busy really and not all in a fun way.  When this happens I do what I always do and look for something to read so I can chill.  It’s what I love about reading, the fact it gives you time away from real life without…… Continue reading Self-publishing, reviews and audiences

Another week or a wine down the track

Whilst still high on cloud nine that we managed to handle self-publishing a few other things have also impacted on me, this week.  It has been timely because at some stage, reviews will come in, and reality will say hello.  Don’t misunderstand. I have no misgivings about our efforts in creating Stories of the Dark…… Continue reading Another week or a wine down the track

Up and Running

A week after the big event and I still can’t quite grasp it.  I can call myself an author.  That might sound strange considering I have been blogging for a year but somehow the publishing of a book is so different.  Blogging has continuity; you can change your mind and rescind whatever you wrote or…… Continue reading Up and Running
