There seems to be a theme, in a number of the books I've read, being that a woman's confinement within an asylum has been part of some great conspiracy to, as I've noted before, silence them. This is the kind of thing I'd love to study, and write a paper on. And I might just … Continue reading The Asylum, by John Harwood
Florence & Giles, by John Harding is unlike anything I've read before. Sure, I've seen the Gothic elements before, but I'm talking about the language. At first I was like, "Jeez, there seems to be a few errors." then I was like, "Have I forgotten English?" then I realised, "Ah!" and then it was like, "Holy … Continue reading Florence & Giles, by John Harding
All of my books have arrived in the mail. Woo! I can't wait to crack into them! I recently finished reading Wildthorn, by Jane Eagland. It was amazing! But, I will speak (write?) more of that in a minute. I just started Florence and Giles, by John Harding.

I had no idea the amount of typos still left in the manuscript. It's quite embarrassing actually, but since I've read it so many times, I have been left blind … Continue reading Eleanor – done and dusted-ish

Yes, I will be older and wiser, and maybe even a little depressed because I'm still in denial about the '90s being so long ago. I'm pretty sure … Continue reading Birthday break!
It's getting to that stage where I will have to abandon my 'noobness' and start immersing myself fully into the world of post writing... stuff. For Eleanor's sake. This will include building a platform (well, more so than I have), writing cover letters, reading comps, submitting to an editor, submitting to publishers, and I'm sure … Continue reading Eleanor – Comps, cover letters, and courses
