I’ve finally decided to give blogging a go. Although I’m a writer, keeping a blog is not something I’m excited about. I’m just not a very interesting person, so I’m not sure who would want to read it! Instead of rambling on a lot, I’ve decided to focus on the things I enjoy in life. Mondays will be Music Mondays, where I introduce you to some of my favourite tracks, often those that influence my writing. Fridays will be Photo Fridays where I share snapshots of my life, whatever that might involve. Use the link in the top menu to read my latest posts.
A World Other Than Her Own is now available in paperback!
You can now order my latest book in paperback ahead of its official release on 10th August. You can use the pre-order link www.books2read.com/worldother to find the book in your local Amazon store.
My third novel is coming 10th August and is available for pre-order!
I'm very pleased to announce that my third novel, A World Other Than Her Own, is now available to pre-order on Amazon. You can go to books2read.com/worldother to get your copy. I'm still working on the paperback version, but that will also be available in time for the release day on Friday 10th August 2018.
The book will be exclusive to Amazon for the time being, but my other books will remain on sale in all stores, and A World Other Than Her Own will also be available from other stores at some point in the future.
Kindle Unlimited readers will be able to read the book for free.
What if your only way out was a dead end?
The Anti-Sandwich Experiment
I just want to make a few things clear to begin with. I’m not about to start blogging, and I’m definitely not about to start blogging about food. Plenty of people already do that, and they do it much better than I could. I also can’t see my friends, readers and followers interested in a food blog by yours truly.
I do, however, have to eat every day, in fact several times a day, like the rest of the human population. The western world in particular seems to be obsessed with sandwiches. Let’s face it: we have sandwiches for breakfast, for lunch and even for dinner. If you’re on the go or in a hurry, you’ll tell your friends or workmates that you’ll just grab a quick sandwich.
A few days ago, I ventured on a live radio interview with ArtistFirst. You can listen to it here.
I was also the first to be interviewed in a series for Irish Independent Authors Collective. You can read that interview here.
I've just started writing a short story that will be available for free at some point in the future. As usual, it's not looking very short, so the timelines are a bit questionable at the moment.
I have several other works in different stages of planning, including a novel set in my hometown in Finland, so fear not - I'm not about to stop writing!
