Bright Spots Amidst The Anxious Darkness

Bright Spots Amidst The Anxious Darkness

I thought, since my last post was a bit of a downer, I’d write one concentrating on some of the bright points of this week. Because there were bright points! To be honest, I felt awful on Wednesday, but it’s been a slow and steady improvement since then. I’m still stressed and anxious and overworked, but I haven’t had any more panic attacks. So, here are some pieces of good news. 1. My friend Cait’s book is coming out in…

Depression, Writing, and 2016

Depression, Writing, and 2016

One thing that’s been noticeable about 2016 is that I haven’t been blogging very much. I made a brief attempt in the middle of the year to change that, but it didn’t last long, and since then a weekly post has been about all I can manage (if that). Although I’ve managed to keep my book blog more consistent, that’s only been possible because I schedule a lot of posts in advance. To be honest, I’ve been writing less in…

Death and Fire: The Autumn Book Tag

Death and Fire: The Autumn Book Tag

I decided, as part of my new mission to Actually Post Semi-Regularly (it warrants capitalisation), to participate in the Autumn Book Tag. I got this tag from Engie @ Musings From Neville’s Navel, although she didn’t actually tag me in it. It was a rare book tag in that looking at the questions, I could actually think of answers to most of them, so I decided to give it a go. What is your favorite thing about autumn? The fact…

Fleeting Reasons To Throw Money At Amazon

Fleeting Reasons To Throw Money At Amazon

I released Fleeting Ink yesterday! (And waited until today to post about it because, hey, didn’t want you to think I was too eager.) I also reduced Crossroads Poetry to a slightly lower price, though not a lot, because minimum price limits and conversion rates and tax and all that malarkey. Dude. Tax sucks. (I mean, I totally understand the concept and stuff. But seriously. America keeps charging me tax when I’m earning like two quid and I don’t even…

Fleeting Ink

Fleeting Ink

I’m releasing another poetry collection! I know, I failed to warn you about this one. It’s probably going to be out on Tuesday, too, so you don’t have a lot of time to run away. But don’t worry, I won’t be talking about it much. Kinda more focused on passing my exams. Releasing poetry collections is like a background, “Well, maybe if I do this I won’t starve to death in my first term of uni,” when we all know…

I Am Not Published

I Am Not Published

I am not a traditionally published author. I have never signed with an agent or had a book deal. You can’t walk into a bookshop and pick up something with my name on it, unless it’s something I dropped, in which case it’s probably got my number on it so that you can return it to me, because I am brilliant at losing things and now take precautions. It was brought to my attention after I posted my rant about…

Why I Am A Proper Author…

Why I Am A Proper Author…

… and how I forgot to tell you until almost a week later. Seriously. Aside from a flippant note at the bottom of my TCWT post, I was so wrapped up dealing with the blog drama that went down last week that it completely slipped my mind to tell you that St Mallory’s Forever! has been released. I know. Debut author. Should be fairly mental about it, shouldn’t I? Well, I had other things on my mind come Thursday, and it’s…

Feather Pen Friday: A Day Late: PROOF COPIES

Feather Pen Friday: A Day Late: PROOF COPIES

I’m so sorry, dear readers, I really am. I fully intended to write this post yesterday and, well, the only excuse I can offer is that I was having technology issues and couldn’t get onto the internet. I wanted to talk to you about my proof copies! Yeah! Proper printed books! Basically, if you complete NaNoWriMo you get given this code thing, right? It’s for a company called CreateSpace who are a self-publishing company. Right now I’m not sure that…
