Okay, so in the world of Indie Publishing there appears to be quite a bit of discussion regarding editing. Naturally, most writers want to publish a really great story and also want readers to enjoy their books without the irritation of spelling mistakes and grammar issues getting in the way. However, there is confusion as… Continue reading Confused? I Know I am!
Hey there! As you’ve probably guessed by the title, I’ve got a story coming out soon on Kindle. Iron Blood is set in a completely different world to my other books and is about reflection, pain and loss. It’s still a Fantasy based story, but I’ve gone for a different theme.

Hey there!

However, with no cash left for formatting, I had to learn it myself. I’ve since, studied formatting the… Continue reading Vastian Lore Re-Published
Now I’m underway! The re-edits of Vastian Lore is finished and the ebook is under review on Amazon. The hardest part will be Createspace because it’s a little more picky than Kindle with certain aspects of formatting. I’m hoping I’ve got it all figured out and the PDF is acceptable first time around. In the… Continue reading Completion!

Since completing my Editing Diploma I’ve had my eyes opened to how I made it so complicated in my own head and it prevented me from seeing the simple errors or flaws that can… Continue reading Realisations…
Just a quick Q&A! I wondered, as a self-published author myself, whether anyone had a preference regarding ebooks or paperbacks? Please choose your preference and vote. It will really help me decide whether I should publish my next book as one or the other, or even both! Thank you for taking the time to read… Continue reading Which is Best?
Yep, it’s that day again. Monday. It always has a sort of foreboding cloud hovering over it. Maybe it’s because this is the first day after the comfort of the weekend?
