A Guest Post And A Plug

Ironic isn't it?

I don't seem to have time to write my own blog but I'm a guest on Womagwriter's Blog today.

I had the pleasure of meeting Patsy Collins a few weeks ago when she and Gary passed through Nottingham on their travels and a chance remark by me led to her inviting me to write a post for Womagwriter.

She also very kindly offered me a chance to mention my book Youthopia.



Please go and take a look.

Reading List

Where do people get the time to post on their blog several times a week?

Just lately, if I'm not writing for magazines, then I'm reading, and included in my reading list are several self-help books on writing craft. Over the last year or so I've collected a few by writers that I know on the internet or that I've actually met. I'm still working through some of them and here they are; all highly recommended of course:

Easy Money For Writers and Wannabes                      Maggie Cobbett
The Little Book of Freelance Writing                             Susie Kearley
Kindle Direct Publishing for Absolute Beginners           Sally Jenkins
Editing the Red Pen Way                                            Anne Rainbow
Stories with Twist Endings, How to Write and Sell Them  Linda Lewis
Give Up Ironing                                                         Kathleen McGurl
The Short Story Writer's Toolshed                                 Della Galton
From Story Idea to Reader               Patsy Collins & Rosemary J. Kind

Alternatively, if you fancy a bit of children's adventure or you know an eleven to thirteen year old who would, then try this:
