A Chaos Corner in a Maddening World

I’m writing this sat on my bed in the hotel room I’m sharing with my daughter. It’s a fantastic place on the edge of the moors, but unfortunately, it doesn’t have air conditioning, so I am melting.It occurred to me the other day that I haven’t updated my But Me a Coffee page for a while. It turns out a while is an understatement; it’s been over six months. So, as I sit here melting, I’m going to bring you up to date.Let’s start with the personal... more

Too Little Too Late or Too Early

Why Timing Matters on Social MediaIn comedy, timing is everything. The same is true of social media especially if you use it as a marketing tool. Knowing when to post is just as important as knowing what to post, and just as with comedy, it all boils down to knowing your audience.I've spent much of the last two weeks getting to know my audience and their habits. More specifically their reading habits on Twitter. What I found was that if I want my posts to be seen by more people, I need to... more

Sneak Peak - Chapter 2

So, I've been completely at a loss as to what to share with you this week. There really isn't a lot to update you on. Yes, I'm editing, yes I'm writing, but there are no magic moment or amazing insights that I feel are worthy of sharing. So, instead, I thought I would offer another sneak preview of The Scourge of the Demon Hunters.This is Chapter 2. I'm not going to tell you about it, but Content Warning.
