Write in the morning, revise in the afternoon, read at night

Today one of my followers said that I ‘can’t write for toffee’. Yesterday, one more – a promoter – said that my Sophia von X book cover sucks – seems it all starts well, as usually 😂.

A love-hate relationship with the writing life…

My thriller, Sophia von X, is finally here. 👻 It took me 6 months and 3 very extensive weeks to finish the book. And now, when I’m thinking about all the work I’ve done, I’m realising I killed an insufficient amount of people.

Hocus-pocus or how to create an awesome book from a crappy unfinished material in 2 weeks…

Hello, February! The one-month-long vacation is over and the reality of “damn, Ray… are you going to edit the book?” is here, slapping my face with a warning of fast-approaching deadlines. In a world of Indie Publishing, jam-packed with frustration, chaos, confusion, anxiety, and laziness, it’s really hard to stay on track 24/7. Things to remember when you need a push: No one cares! It is you against you. Every...

“Rewrite until it hurts!” – New Year’s Resolutions For Fiction Writers

Written by Jemima  Have you found yourself wondering if the whole New Year’s resolutions concept is getting a little jaded and tatty around the edges? If so, allow me a shot at rekindling your passion for pledges to the Self. I know that most of us writers can raise a hand on having made heartfelt promises that have been spectacularly broken, with a mighty tumble before the end of January....

Choose “MUST” in 2020

#takeawaykeys from the book of Elle Luna “The Crossroads of Should and Must: find and follow your passion” Picasso said about his life and work “It’s not what an artist does that counts, but what he IS.” What he did was what he was. WHAT HE DID WAS WHAT HE WAS. JOB = CAREER = CALLING. Now ask yourself: a) who you are? B) what you do? C) are you doing...
