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…

I Would Say I’m Weird But I’m Not

I Would Say I’m Weird But I’m Not

I often complain to those who know me well that my sister is very scathing and dismissive of a lot of what I do on the internet and frequently makes comments about my blog right when I’m not really in the right mood to answer her politely or even coherently, and so I’m taking quite a risk writing this as there’s about an 80% chance she’ll read it. However, some of what she says does have substance to it. Often she’s…

Competitions And Anthologies

If you follow me on Twitter, hang out in the Spork Room on the NaNoWriMo forums, talk to me on Protagonize, are friends with me on Facebook, or were the recipient of a hyperactive email a few days ago (that is, an email sent by a hyperactive Miriam and not an incredibly bouncy message), you will know that a story of mine was recently included in an anthology, which was released on Amazon on Saturday. Yes, I was hyper. Friday…

Why I *am* A Real Author!

Why I *am* A Real Author!

Why am I real author? Because of this. (Or this if you’re in America.) Also known as this: Look carefully at that list of authors, and you might just find one that’s familiar … Come on, guys, you can afford this. £0.99! Christmas promotion! Don’t you want me to be able to afford to go to university?

Feather Pen Friday: Dun?

Feather Pen Friday: Dun?

Okay, so I think I’ve been reading the NaNoisms forum too much because I originally intended to call this post ‘Done?’. However I like the new version and have left it be. Well, a couple of days ago I finished the third book in my trilogy. It’s called Returning (the book, not the trilogy), although I’m probably going to change that name, and it’s finished. Hooray. Unfortunately, I began it while the second one was still a first draft –…

Why I Am A Proper Author (or will be)

Why I Am A Proper Author (or will be)

Many of you know that I guest-post over on ‘Mark Williams International’. In fact all of you should know, because I put a link up here every time I post, blah blah blah, if you don’t go read them you’re not loyal etcetera. Mark’s a bestselling e-book author, so that was quite exciting for me. But that’s not even the beginning of it, because recently I had an email that almost caused me to jump up and down in excitement….
