Join us at Morgen’s Free Monday Creative Writing Q&A Mentorship live chat

Hello everyone. If you’d like help with your writing, or just love talking about anything writing related, and you’re on Facebook, you’re welcome to join 100+ (and growing) of us at my free weekly live Q&A chat. It’s where members can post their questions and we all pitch in with our answers. We do this throughout the week but I’m (almost) guaranteed to be there from 7pm to 9pm (UK time) every Monday so much quicker replies.

To join us click here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/morgensmondaymentorship, answer the three question (What do you write? / What do you need most help with (if known)? / How can you contribute to the group?) then wait for me to approve you. See you there!

I also run a free anonymous (only I know who’s who) email critique swap for flash fiction, short stories or novel extracts – see Morgen’s (Free) Email Critique Group. There are also links on that page to non-fiction, script and poetry swaps.

Karen has been reading Treading The Uneven Road by L. M. Brown.

This book offers you nine interwoven short stories.

With “Treading the Uneven Road”, L. M. Brown has created a collection of interwoven short stories with incredibly authentic characters. Each story kept me very close to the protagonists, taking me back to that time and region. L. M.

The protagonists are believable, complemented by the aptly written stories. There are some insights into the human behaviour that will make you wonder.

Which cover do you prefer? I know what my pug-owning friend would say. 🙂

Welcome to Mixing Reality With Fiction Book Blog

Good morning & a very happy Sunday to you all! Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing a guest post about book covers written by the wonderful Michele Gorman aka Lilly Bartlett. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

What do you wear when you write? I’m a leggings, T-shirt or comfy top and cardi wearer… currently accompanied by Reindeer boot slippers… the height of chic. 🙂

Book lovers' booklist

It’s always interesting to hear how other authors work: where they write; what they have on their desks (or kitchen tables); the time of day that’s best for them to be creative; and what they wear.

Now to be honest, it’s the ‘what they wear’ that interests me the most today. Sorry to be so shallow, but I know from talking to other people who work from home, we’re not the sort for a full row of pearls and stilettos while we’re sitting in front of our computers bashing out the odd 5,000 words.
