The Decision to Become an Author – Anthony Sciarratta | Guest Post

Every person faces a time in their life when they decide whether or not to pursue their dream. The fear of failure can consume one’s soul, but the amount of pain felt after giving up on your dream would be greater. I made my decision in August of 2017, while vacationing in Mexico. It was

Kicking Off My First Book with Kickstarter – Jonas Ressem | Guest Post

By the spring of 2019, I had received 17 rejections from the publishing industry. No literary agent wanted to consider my work, or me.

The Process of Writing – Howard of Warwick | Guest Post

I’ve written eight historical humour novels so far. Six of them were in my Brother Hermitage series and two very un-straight histories. Each time I start to write a novel I need a “conceit”. What is the core idea around which the tale will be spun? Is it that a character holds a simple but

Traditional Publishing: A Maze; Self-publishing: Amazing – Alison Gardiner | Guest Post

I have fought dragons and won; from now on please call me St Georgette. The vanquished fire breathing monster in question is the publishing industry, which waits, crouched, ready to swallow up, or at least badly singe, many would-be heroes. Having discovered that my original attacking stance, straight to the traditional face, was not working,
