Using Scrivener

Monday, the first of June, I’m starting a new book again. I wrote two books in quick succession, so I needed a break of about two weeks. It was nice, but now I’m ready to write again. Not that I haven’t been plotting, but it’s different. I’m planning on using Scrivener again. I’ve used it […]

General Query Tips

Querying is a daunting task in itself. It feels like you’ve just braved the epic climb of a mountain and now you’re about to face the fire-breathing dragon.

Looking for a Great Book to Read? Look No Further!

When Clara arrives in the picturesque village of Greystone to work as a maid, things are about to get nasty. And not just because she’s decided to open the door to her past and pull off one more con. This con is different, though. It’s personal. She just doesn’t realise how personal, yet. Because she’s about to make friends, she’s about to care, and worst of all, she can’t stop thinking about that charming detective who seems both suspicious and drawn to her.
