Writing, self-publishing & book promotion

Updated: Jun 15, 2018

Grab a cup of coffee, or tea - and a cookie. This is a journey we can go on together. I will share what I have learnt about writing, self-publishing and book promotion in this blog, and I hope you will comment and join the conversation.

I will refer to books that helped me to focus my writing. Books like The Storygrid and The First Five Pages - while discussing character arcs, genre, plot, scenes, etc - in relation to my story.

I'll post video links from Scrivener that share what I have learnt in the writing of my debut novel, Trainsurfer.

I'll share what I have learnt about publishing to KDP on Amazon. And if I branch out, I will share my experiences with you.

I'll post images of my progression of cover designs - which is worth a chuckle.

There will be tips about book promotion.

Teacher notes and discussion points for Trainsurfer will be developed and shared.

But first, I need to fetch my daughter from dance class. Hope you enjoyed your coffee, or was it tea... and a cookie? I like a good, strong espresso in the morning, tea in the afternoon and a Rooibos (Red bush tea) before bed. I'm pretty sure that I'll be sipping on a cuppa something, when writing. Hope we can bond over caffeine - or water... or wine... and words.
