Genre Conventions in Angel Lit

You might be sick of hearing about Angel-lit from me at the moment. Only, it’s such a broad topic that it’s taken me several weeks to say everything I wanted to say. If you’ve stuck with me this long THANK YOU! Next week I promise to not post about Fallen Angels or Demons; well I’mContinue reading “Genre Conventions in Angel Lit”

Feminists and Rebel Angels

This is going to be a slightly longer post today. I condensed it as much as I thought I could but it’s longer than my usual posts. During my undergraduate course I wrote a thesis entitled “Feminist Rebels” and Opening Pandora’s Box: The Sins of Female Angels”, and following on from my previous posts about theContinue reading “Feminists and Rebel Angels”

Fallen Angel Lit – Continued: My Problem with Fallen

Last week I started discussing my obsession with Angel lit. It’s something I could talk for days on. One of the most popular Angel-lit series would have to be Fallen by Lauren Kate but I have a love-hate relationship with it. When I first read it I loved it. It was everything I needed toContinue reading “Fallen Angel Lit – Continued: My Problem with Fallen”

Fallen Angel Lit – Why is it so popular?

I have three main things I like to write about when it comes to my novels: Witches, Fallen Angels and Mermaids. For a short time a couple of years ago I went back to university to study a Masters in Writing (I never finished the course due to health issues) and I chose to baseContinue reading “Fallen Angel Lit – Why is it so popular?”

Art Practice and Deadlines

Today I want to talk about Art Practice and Deadlines. I really hate the term “Art Practice” but I can’t think of a better term so I’m stuck with it. All artists have some kind of art practice. Whether you are an illustrator who draws daily or a painter who keeps an Art Journal; ArtContinue reading “Art Practice and Deadlines”

Wow what a busy Easter long weekend I’ve had. I didn’t get nearly enough time to read or write but I did get to enjoy the break with my family (whom I don’t get to see very often) and I was able to work on a present for someone very special. My Mom gifted me woolContinue reading “Goodreads Giveaway Has Ended”

Indie Publishing: Part Five – The Belly of the Whale

One of the most useful things I learnt at university, in relation to writing, was archetypes. I had a fantastic teacher who was fundamental in my education of archetypal characters and stories. She will never be able to understand how much she effected my own journey and how she influenced my writing. Archetypal characters andContinue reading “Indie Publishing: Part Five – The Belly of the Whale”
