This was going to be a ‘Hooray, Lulu are now allowing their writers to set their own discounts! Have 25% off the list price, to encourage you to buy the book even if you didn’t win it!’ post. The good news is, there are indeed discounts! The Maker’s Mask: Book One Of Requite in paperback […]

Now seems as good a time as any to point out that if you buy the digital editions of the books they are pretty cheap. 🙂 I can totally understand not wanting to shell out £13 for a book by an unknown author (though a lot of that’s Lulu’s printing costs, and not anything I […]

This is going to sound ludicrously arrogant, given that I’m white, cisgendered, more or less able-bodied, and from a First World country: but when I look back at why I’ve started writing books, most of the time it’s because I’ve been irritated that the books that were already out there weren’t reflecting me.

I recently bought N.K Jemisin’s The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms because I’d read the first three chapters on the webpage and got hooked.

N.K Jemisin […]

There is progress being made. Honest. The story so far: I thought I’d order a proof copy of The Maker’s Mask before I got into the whole trying to buy an ISBN thing. The proof copy arrived. I took one look at it and snatched it back from my husband saying ‘You can’t read this […]

Firstly: dear WordPress, why make it so hard to find a login page when I accidentally log myself out? Leaving a comment on my own blog doesn’t work, and just leads to the Orwellian situation where the comment gets screened until I verify that I’m not a spammer and unscreen it. Secondly: dear people who […]
