First Publication of the Year at Visual Verse

I love Visual Verse and the picture prompts they post at the start of every month. I discovered this site last year and started doing the monthly prompts. I missed out on a couple of months where I was busy or the picture didn’t inspire me, but this year I am hoping to do the prompt every month. I’m delighted to say my piece for January was accepted and is now live on their website.

Marketing for Writers in 2018

As I settle back to work for the New Year, I’m also looking at marketing for writers. Yep, it’s my dreaded subject, but something that every author has to look at. I’m even groaning at the thought of writing this blog post. I’m a writer, not a marketing expert and contrary to what all the sites tell you, it’s bloody hard. Hours upon hours of learning to use the different social networking sites, coming up with a plan that may or may not work, touting for reviews, trying to get your Facebook posts noticed, and much, much more.

Writing Goals – How I did in 2017 and What I Plan for 2018

It’s the new year. 2018 has arrived. Can you believe 2017 went by so quickly? Today is back to normality for me. The kids are back to school, Joe is back to work, and I begin my own client work too after a lovely two-week break. I thought I’d start my blog this week by taking a look at my writing goals for 2018 and looking back over my 2017 goals to see what I managed to accomplish.
