    I’m not normally a reader of this genre either but it gripped me and was well written, this is only the second piece in this genre I have ever read.. Good luck Yvonne.

      Thank you, Jane. It’s not a popular genre but I love it. Glad you liked the excerpt.

        Don’t say that out loud, Yvonne – thousands of fantasy writers (inc. JRR Tolkein fans) would say it’s incredibly popular. 🙂

    Hi Yvonne.

    A guest blog is generally <1,000 words on an 'educational' writing-related topic plus bio & pics (which I have). Details on but if you look at and/or, you'll see what people have done already.



We'd love you to leave a comment, thank you!
