October 2016 already?!

I can't believe the time has gone by again SO quickly. Last year, I remember thinking that 2015 was a blur, but 2016 is like an afterthought!

Saying this, my life has changed a lot and I am constantly trying to balance what I do so that I am happy and my family is settled!

Writing took up too much of my time. It engulfed my every thought, and the need to keep up-to-date with social media to see sales, comments, etc, became an obsession. Yet, there has never been a more exciting time to be a writer.

Now, both paperbacks and kindle books are sought after. There are so many ways to get your words heard. And recently, I saw an online friend of mine get incredible success with her debut novel, SAVING SOFIE, which I read and enjoyed immensely.

Amazing to think that I published her short story first via a fundraising anthology! To read some of the author's earlier work download her short story collection and our anthologies... Amazon link

Read my review of Saving Sofie via GOODREADS

This gives hope to all aspiring writers. Just write your bestseller and submit. You never know - yours could be the next big read!

I have to complete my novel - a labour of love which has truly caused me to reflect on my life, the past, and the events that have shaped the world.

But, until my writing muse visits me again I head back to the world of mathematics! I am actually enjoying teaching A level and am shocked that I actually remember it after so many years. I can only strive to do my best, as we all should...

This weekend I was struck down by the dreaded winter flu... but, I managed to read again and devoured 5 books! Sometimes, it is easy to forget the power of a great story.

Keep reading & writing everyone,
Vanessa
