I thought I’d share a couple of books with you that I think really help writers to focus their minds, not only creatively but in the business sense too. There are so many distractions on the social networks at present, that it makes procrastination a full-time job. Ferris takes away the need for inspiration with a few hints and suggestions and gets you working, even with the dreaded writers block. Gaughran on the other hand, looks at the digital world as a whole; breaking it down into manageable chunks of information, then guiding you through subjects such as social networking and the mechanics of ePublishing. Both books get five stars from me and are well worth the time and cash spent on them.

Hello and welcome to Narrative Space, my new blog hub for fantasy, Sci-Fi/dystopian and supernatural fiction. Here you will find book reviews, posts about themes or characters along with my ramblings or observations about speculative fiction and related subjects. There will be a dash of horror and magical realism too, and you might even find my love of history and folklore creeping in from time to time. After all, history has a huge influence on my writing.
Please take some time to navigate the site. You will find sections on character and genre and all my links to stories that I’ve had published. There’s also the opportunity to follow by email so you don’t miss any new posts or book reviews.
Thanks for stopping by!
