#Indiemarch Day 1: Photo of your book babies #indieauthor #indie

Thanks to Rebecca, on Rebeccahowiebooks  for coming up with this #indiemarch tag idea for the month of march.

Here’s my offering for day 1



You can join in on your blog or on Instagram. Here’s the list of the daily prompts.


Copy your link onto Rebecca’s post here.

Come on, let’s ignore the snow and support our fellow indie authors.

#Indiemarch: Taking pride in your work

I love the idea of #Indiemarch.
Let’s all get behind Rebecca Howie’s idea and celebrate our own books by taking part in this tag everyday throughout March.


Doubt is as much a part of being a writer as the actual writing, and after finishing my second novel last year, I realised just how easy it is to underplay our achievements.

Publishing a novel is huge, and whether or not it was traditionally published shouldn’t matter. So #indiemarch is my attempt at getting the indie community together to share their pride in their work, because there’s enough doubt from everyone else without our own nagging little voices adding to the pile.

Below are the prompts for each of the 31 days, and you can take part either on your blog or on Instagram.


Don’t forget to use the #indiemarch tag so I can see your entries, and link your posts in the comments section here so we can all be proud indie authors together!

NaNoPlanno: Tools for NaNoWriMo Prep

It’s a week before Nanowrimo starts and I haven’t prepared at all. This post has really inspired me to start planning, and I’m looking forward to checking out the links as well. Book 3 here I come!

Kobo Writing Life

By Chris Mandeville

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month: a frenzy of writing with the goal of producing a 50,000-word novel during the thirty days of November.

NaNoWriMo is a great opportunity to push yourself as a writer. It’s all about quantity of words, not quality. It’s vomit writing, spilling your guts, taking an idea and running with it, sans editing, revision, and second-guessing. It goes to the core of the creative process of writing: putting words on the page.

The official NaNoWriMo was created by author Chris Baty in 1999 and is now run by the nonprofit National Novel Writing Month. Hundreds of thousands of writers have participated over the past eighteen years, writing billions of words.

Why do so many people set out to write 50,000 words in just thirty days? There’s a lot to be gained beyond wordcount: NaNo forces you to focus, put writing higher…

David Gemmell – the Legend of Fantasy

by Suzanne Rogerson

As I’ve just published my second fantasy novel, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the biggest influence on my writing to date – the late, great David Gemmell.

I decided not to write a long, in-depth study of his work, rather I wanted to use this opportunity to share his legend with the world. Plus it’s…

#RBRT Review Team

Suzanne has been reading Irex by Carl Rackman


I am reviewing IREX by Carl Rackman for Rosie’s book review team. I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

What a book!
I liked the writing instantly and was intrigued by the whole premise of the story. It did start a little slow and there was a lot of description throughout the book, but it was fascinating being transported back in time to the Victorian era on the Isle of Wight and aboard the Irex as it attempted to sail to Rio.
There were twists I wasn’t expecting that dragged me deeper into the story and the book was written in a way that compelled you to read on. It switched in time to before the shipwreck with Captain Hutton on the Irex, and afterwards at the inquest to find out what…
