In the lead up to Christmas, and with the exciting news that I have a BOOKBUB feature again over the holiday period (see what it did for me last year), I’ve joined up with a group of fellow SF and fantasy authors to offer free taster books and stories, along with the chance to win […]

This week, I’ll post my updated suggestions for three holiday activities that will get your computers and technology ready for the blitz of writing you’ll swear to accomplish in New Year resolutions.

To reach our next destination, Mull, we needed to drive up the west coast to Oban. All of the west coast of Scotland is beautiful, but this trip didn’t give us any spare time to stop and admire views, as the time between ferry sailings was pretty tight. We’d already explored a lot of Oban […]

The Hebridean islands of Islay and Jura sit very close together, and are most famous for their whiskies! Jura (which we didn’t get across to) is largely uninhabited and mountainous, with a short road down one side leading to a few houses and, you’ve guessed, a distillery. Jura is a great malt whisky, which even […]

Continuing with the soggy tale of our day on Arran, after our clamber down to the King’s Caves, we were decidedly soaked. Yes, I had the correct waterproof coat, but I’d forgotten that my walking boots live up at the house in the Highlands, which we would be going to after this odyssey, but not […]

Being on holiday, I finally got around to some reading, and managed to finish a series I’ve really grown to love. The Dragon Songs Saga has undergone a number of revamps since it began, both new titles and new covers, but the novels themselves have remained unchanged, so where I’ve linked below to reviews of […]

After touring the Outer Hebrides last year, this year was the turn of the Inner Hebrides. Arran isn’t technically one of the Inner Hebrides, but it fits nicely into a tour starting at Glasgow and heading north, so that was our first destination. If you saw last year’s posts (find them HERE), you might remember […]

Today I’m handing over to my good friend Marcia to announce the arrival of her new novella, The Emissary 2: To Love Somebody. You may recall I loved the first one and have eagerly been awaiting this latest. If you didn’t see my review of #1, you can read it HERE Over to you, Marcia… […]
