Happy New Year! I announced in late 2017 that Moroda was being turned into an audiobook, and I’m pleased to announce that it’s progressing along nicely! Audiobooks are hugely popular, and to be able to offer Moroda in all three formats (eBook, paperback, and now audiobook), was something I was really keen to achieve. It’s […]
World of Linaria Book Two – Palom I am so happy to reveal the eBook cover of the second book in my World of Linaria series: Palom. It’s so amazing! I’m over the moon at how incredibly well it’s turned out, and it’s so brilliant to see the World of Linaria books start to […]
It’s November!! For all those wonderful writers out there, it’s a month of motivation, challenges, and crying. I am of course talking about National Novel Writing Month – A.K.A. NaNoWriMo.
