I am rather excited this week to share news of my first professional article published in a national magazine: Writing Magazine, August edition, to be precise. I have subscribed to this magazine for many years; indeed they have provided links to publishing houses and websites where I have had work published. I featured in Writers’ News a couple of times with my books, but this time I had a real article accepted! It has given me the confidence to reignite my freelance career and keep on pitching, because recently I had been a little deflated when all I got was rejection or plain old avoidance. Here was an editor who liked what I wrote and published it. Hooray!
In other news, I am still plodding on with the book writing and promotion. Later this month you can see me in Blackpool with my novel Vampire of Blackpool, and my Redcliffe novels series. The first Books on the Beach event will take place at The Village Hotel in Blackpool on Saturday 20th July 2019. We will be joined by over 80 authors from across the globe. We are excited to bring so many names together under one roof and we would love it if you could join us! Check out our Facebook group for more details and to meet the authors who will attend.
