Answering questions no 2

Over the years I've received and read many questions on writing, uniquely my own. Here is my take on answering some of them! What are your writing routines? My goal is to write from 8 am to 5 pm every weekday, but the truth is: I'm ill. I need to sleep around 18 hours a day, and therefore, I work around it. Currently, that means that I write non-stop between 2 pm and 5 pm every weekday. It's not much, but it's what I can manage now when I'm not feeling well. It's something that I advocate too; that we shouldn't give up on our dreams just because our life isn't what we wished it to be. It's a bit like squeezing in exercise every day; you have to be imaginative. If you don't feel like you ha

Answering your questions

Over the years that I've seen and received many questions. Here is a list of a few of them and my answers: Why do I write? It is almost impossible to answer this question without being poetic. I write because, without writing, it doesn't truly feel like I'm alive. Writing is an extension of my soul and a way to get my thoughts on paper.

At least if it's a profession we're so happy with that, it completes us.

Sending my book to libraries

Today I've written six letters to libraries in Kent, where I used to live and still visit often. I have friends and family there, and something that I love visiting is libraries. There are some remarkable libraries in Kent and Gravesend's one of my favourites. High, whitewashed ceilings, white decor and blue walls. The style looks Ancient with a Roman entrance door on the outside and Greek pillars on the inside. It's beautiful! I sent my book, Sophia & the Dragon: Who Came for Dinner to six libraries in Kent, just a few that I have visited over the years: Gravesend Library Maidstone Library Canterbury Library Herne Bay Library Meopham Library Dartford Library Six remarkable libraries th

My eBook update

Hi! I'm currently working hard to get an eBook published of Sophia & the Dragon: Who Came for Dinner. It's been a roller coaster so far! At first I had to make a kdf template of the digital book that fitted the template for Amazon KDP. Once that was done I needed a pdf of the front page of the book and to fill in a lot of information about the book on and then I also needed to name my price for the book. I wanted to offer the eBook for £0.99 but the website didn't let me set that price, so I set it as the lowest amount possible which was £2.99 for the eBook of Sophia & the Dragon: Who Came for Dinner. Long story short, I got an email back from Amazon that re
