    Do you ever reread your books?

    I very rarely re-read an entire book. It has to be a seriously good book or something which I originally missed in order for me to re-read it again. I do remember reading 'The Hymn' by Graham Masterton twice (outstanding novel) and er, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. I think it was because the film...

    A shy Newbie

    Hello MK Mancuso. Glad you are here. At the beginning, it was semi-busy. Unfortunately, it has recently been very quiet with very few people around. I did have some interaction with one person but he left. Since then, I've not been on this website all that often. Maybe, with the holiday season...

    Thank you. I'm not too keen on the font in the blog either.:eek: I do need some time to get the website looking to how I want it to be. It'll just take time to do so.

    To Blog or not to Blog

    I'm not too keen on blogging, even though I have a website now. I have done four blog posts so far, and I intend to do more. For some reason, I am far more comfortable writing novels than when I am writing blogs. Perhaps, my mindset is wrong. I've read many great blog posts and those bloggers...

    How do you read a book?

    I agree with most of the posts. I have difficulty reading a book when the tv is on. Usually, I switch it off or mute it so I can have complete silence. That way, I can give the book my full attention and not have to re-read sections which I've missed because I've been distracted by the...

    Changing my perspective on Stephen King

    In answer to the original post, Stephen King's On Writing is a great read and I really enjoyed Misery. A rare time where the book is better than the film and the film is superb. Personally, I really enjoy Graham Masterton. Sometimes, he doesn't always get it right, but when he does his books are...

    I need advice on my writing...

    I would agree with some of the other posts here. The first two sentences were difficult to understand, but it is nothing a couple of re-writes won't sort out. Overall, it was good. As an author myself, it's hard to admit to yourself when you might need help so I admire you for doing so. Just...

    Recently Finished

    I've just finished reading My Sister, The Serial Killer by Olayinka Braithwaite. Don't be put off by the title. It's a great book. Witty but disturbing in equal measure. The book is brilliant in the way it depicts what lengths a family member will go to save another family member.

    How To Promote Your Book? Help? Tips, Advice, Thoughts!

    I had a brief look at your website. I couldn't see all of it as it is password protected, but I did view your Book Trailer.
