The Wonderful World of Writing and Rewriting

The Wonderful World of Writing and Rewriting

On the eve of November 30, 2016, I typed the last few words for my national novel writing month target of 50,000 words for the prequel novel, Silence. Upon the completion of this milestone, I had two manuscripts sitting on my hard drive waiting to be edited. The plan was to take December off, a well-earned break, then dive into the revision and editing process; this was the plan. It was a dream that I had every intention of following.

Travel Vlog | Follow me around Paris

Travel Vlog | Follow me around Paris

This year I wanted to do something different with my blog. I wanted to give you a quick and honest look at the behind the scenes of the life of an author. As an author who lives in London, I have Europe practically on my doorstep. I do spend quite a few days every year travelling around Europe and the USA. And, this is what inspired me to start this Follow me around series on my new YouTube channel, Indie Authorpreneur TV. The first Travel Vlog in the series is, Follow me around Futuroscope.

2016, A Year in Review

I’m going to keep this blog post short and to the point. I know 2016 was a great year for a lot of people especially politically, but personally, I’ve had the best year ever.

Novel Location Scouting and Christmas in Poitiers, France

Joyeux Noël, Merry Christmas!

I’m currently in the beautiful city of Poitiers, France spending time with my fiancé Roland and his Family. And, I’m excited to announce it’s novel location scouting time! The city of Poitiers is a beautiful city located in the west of France in the region bearing the same name. It has beautiful narrow cobbled streets and beautiful houses all crushed up next to each other. The city centre looks positively medieval. If it weren’t for the small European cars, you would struggle to believe you were in the 21st century.

NaNoWriMo Adventures and Writing a Prequel Novel

As I write this, I’m supposed to having a couple of days off to recover from National Novel Writing Month. It was a great idea in theory. As an entrepreneur, I’ve found that I can’t do anything or take time off without thinking about my business, or my next book. A not so great habit I should kick to the kerb.

A Blog Launch: What is Behind the Scenes?

A Blog Launch: What is Behind the Scenes?

I can’t believe I’ve decided to do this nevertheless, I’m excited to announce, I’m adding a second blog on top of all the other things I’m committed to doing as an authorpreneur. For quite some time, I’ve been wrestling with the idea of creating an author website for my fiction books. This would mean having three websites, including a website that I’m no longer using. As I pondered this idea, I couldn’t help thinking, there must be a better way. The results of this pondering lead me to create this behind the scenes blog. So, what is Behind the Scenes? How is it relevant to my book coaching and Indie Authorpreneur Blog? And, what can you expect from this blog?
