Yes! Well in my experience anyway, and I've been an indie author for three years now.

The main reason… Continue reading Amazon kdp Select & advertising – is it worth it?

As the blurb tells… Continue reading Review – Antiques and Alibis, by Wendy H. Jones
Until this weekend I wasn't sure about writers conferences, plus I have discovered I am a terribly indecisive procrastinator!

Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. I love that Clive went… Continue reading The Innkeeper’s Son ~ K C Herbel
Over time, many authors have painted a different image of angels and demons. I loved the film Michael with John Travolta drinking, smoking and smelling of cookies... ingenious. Also, really enjoyed Constantine with Keanu Reeves, which was intriguing and spellbinding. And City of Angels with Nicolas Cage, which was lovely and moving. These are just to name… Continue reading Ruin’s Lot by ID Johnson
