Take a Chance!

Motivation for those who want to write a book and have not yet started. If you do not take a chance, you will never know. If you’re stuck on words, start by looking for a book cover or images for a book cover as creative inspiration. Good luck! Bookish greetings 🖍💻📚🤓!

“Take a chance. It’s the best way to test yourself. Have fun and push boundaries.”

Bookish Greetings!

Bookish Greetings! Blessings for the Festive Time, to all the book lovers, writers, authors, beta readers, proofreaders, editors, book cover designers and publishers worldwide! As 2019 is running out of pages in my diary, I’m winding down and slowly easing into a festive mood. There is more time for reading, some creative writing, popping out to the festive markets, enjoying light meals, beers, cappuccinos and munching on festive goodies. I’ll have time to reflect on 2019, and preparing for 2020, which will hopefully be exciting and full of magic!

Wherever you find yourself have a Bookish Time! Be Safe! Enjoy! Living between pages… 🖍💻📚🍷🤓♥️!

Literary Magic

Literary Magic! Have a story inside you? Tried your hand at writing a book, perhaps a short story? Maybe you have thought about it, just not started. Now is the time! Pull out the Mac, iPad, Notebook, iPhone, Tablet… whatever will work for you, and pen the title, first few words, first paragraph, first page, possibly the first chapter. Allow your creative juices to flow, who knows where it might lead! Follow your dreams, and the advice of Ernest Hemingway 💻🖍📚🤓!

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

Ernest Hemingway ♥︎

If you need a bit of help to push you along, there are many great online resources which can help you reach success with your writing. I particularly enjoy Reedsy. Pop over to the Reedsy Learning page, and check out all the resources, tools and free author training courses they offer.

Goodluck! Bookish greetings 🤓🍷📚!

BookCRITICO Festive Reading

BC-Bookish_19Dec2018

The Festive Season is in full swing! I must confess, I am one of those people who love to spoil myself. I am the self-confessed leader of the “Prezzie from ME-to-ME Brigade! Books are my favourite! It’s an all year thing for me, I actually do not wait for the Festive time to indulge, and splurge on my loyal friends; in CrimeFiction, Paranormal, Fantasy, Mystery, ChickLit, Drama and any other bookish delicacy that tickles my fancy! This combined with a good coffee, chocolate, a glass of red or triple distilled. How can you go wrong? It’s a match made in heaven!

Are you giving books as prezzies this Festive Season? Are you hoping to receive a nice read as a present? Did you buy stacks to take with you on holiday? If the answer is no to any of these, pop over to your nearest bookstore, smell the pages, pile up, pull out your loyal credit card and swipe. Ebooks, more your thing? Hop onto Amazon, check out the amazing book covers, fabulous authors, great reads, choose a couple, click, download and transport yourself to another world!

My reads for the rest of the Festive Season! I will be entertained by Mary Ting, Malcolm Hollingdrake, Mitch Reinhardt and Douglas Clegg. What a fabulous selection of authors and genres. The genres are a nice mix of Fantasy, Thriller and Crime Fiction.

If you want to see what secrets these titles hold, just click on the image, it will patch you through to Amazon, where you can read more about the books as well as authors and purchase your own copy!
