Seasons Greetings to All

It’s that time again.  I am currently sailing* my way back to England to visit my family.  While it’s nice to see them, it means I am away from my partner, the light in my life which does leave me sad.

*Is it considered sailing on a ferry…when it doesn’t have any sails? 

This means I am taking a short break.  The next blog post will go live on 27th December and my next Newsletter will go live on 31st December.  Not on my newsletter list?  Join here.

Day of the Imprisoned Writer

Today, the 15th November is the Day of the Imprisoned Writer.

It is an international day that is recognised, annually, as a time when we shine a light on and support writers who have been imprisoned for standing up to those who attack their rights and freedoms of expression, who resist, who fight back with words, against those who would repress basic human rights.

This day was first marked as the Day of the Imprisoned Writer in 1981, (the year of my birth), by PEN International Writers in Prison Committees.

How I Am Tackling My TBR List

Every reader I know has an ever-growing To Be Read list. With the ease of ebook publishing, now more than ever can you get your hands on cheap, easily stored books.

We all joke about the mountain of books, both digital and physical, that we continue to build without reading.

But as a writer, I want to actually read the books I have, not just collect them. After all, I want people to read MY books when they come out rather than have them languishing on someone’s TBR list.

So, I needed a plan!
