On my Wishlist-October 2018

On my Wishlist-October 2018

Welcome to my monthly wishlist update, based on the weekly meme that was hosted by Cosy Books. Every month, I’ll share a list of the books I desperately want to get my hands on but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be new, old, or yet to be released. If you’d like to join in, just post your link in the comments and I’ll visit your blog. Added to my wishlist recently: Before you go… Have you read any of these books or added them to your wishlist? What made you want to read them and what did you think?

Book Blogger Hop: Horror Vs. Urban Fantasy

Book Blogger Hop: Horror Vs. Urban Fantasy

Today I’m taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, a weekly hop hosted by Billy B at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer (originally created by Jennifer at  Crazy-For-Books). You can see the hop schedule here. “Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.”   ~Billy B This week’s question: It’s getting close to Halloween. If […]


#IWSG Oct 2018: Picking myself up again

#IWSG Oct 2018: Picking myself up again

It’s time for another Insecure Writer’s Support Group post to boost my confidence and encourage myself to engage with the writing community. The IWSG post on the first Wednesday of every month. This month’s co-hosts are:  Dolorah, Tanya Miranda, Chemist Ken, and Christopher D. Votey For some strange reason, I ended up answering this month’s optional question last month (not sure how that happened!) so today’s post will be an unstructured waffle instead. This past month has been a tough one for me. After a glorious summer break filled with lots of writing, reading and family time, I found it hard to go back to work in […]

#IWSG Sept 2018: Writing about major life events

It’s time for another Insecure Writer’s Support Group post to boost my confidence and encourage myself to engage with the writing community. The IWSG post on the first Wednesday of every month. This month’s co-hosts are:   Dolorah @ Book Lover,Christopher D. Votey, Tanya Miranda, and Chemist Ken! This month I’ve been steadily working through the first draft of my WiP. It’s frustrating that I don’t have more time to work on it, but I know I’ll get their eventually so I’m trying to write little and often. The story is taking on a life of its own now and I’m excited to see how my characters […]

You can find out more about it here. This week’s theme is:  Author Life Share some of *your* favourite things. Show us what inspires you!

The pile of books to the right is from my own collection […]
