I am what I am…linguistics, gaming and more…

So, for a very long time I’ve kept two separate blogs – Kaiberie.com was my personal blog, and here was where I spoke about writing.  Then the host I was helping out on went under and I lost this blog (I’m getting it back, I just need to import it first, one by one, from […]

New category, updates and sidebars

A bit of house-keeping rather anything particularly important.  Well, depends on your perspective really. Housekeeping wise, I’m hoping to put the older blog posts back eventually.  I’m still trying to work out the best way to do it, but it should be doable. I’ve also added a new category – short fiction.  Anything I write […]

Resetting my priorities

I keep calling this idea the ‘hard reboot’, and it’s something I’ve really tried to avoid because it’s just so drastic, but here we go. A long time ago, I stopped writing and talked about burnout.  I’m horrified to discover, reading back to when I first started talking about it, that I was talking about […]

And now for something completely different….Dungeon Saga

*Disclaimer – I am staff at Mantic Games (I work as their community manager) but this post is not sponsored by them.  I just love the game so much I thought I’d share. It’s not often I get to talk about my *other hobbies* on the blog, though it’s pretty much a given that most […]

Freebies!

So, there’s a couple of things I’m giving away on my mailing list and the new mailing list we’ve set up for the Indie Author Group.  If you sign up for the newsletter you’ll get…. FIVE different coloured todo lists – they are effectively the same todo list, just coloured differently so you can print […]

Why I turned down a contract with an advance, and why you might want to think twice too

Very long title I know. Right.  Here’s the ground rules for this post.  I WILL NOT tell people what press this is.  I talked with people to come to the conclusion I did, but I am withholding one reason.  I won’t talk money, nor what the contract specifics were.  If you ask, I’ll politely decline […]

A word from our sponsor – daily writing support with Writer’s Almanac

One of the major things I’ve been working on setting up,  since before the new dream job (which I’m going to blog about at some point soon!) was a daily marketing support project for those that don’t know where to start with writing, and need guidance that involves all of the minutiae they can get.

Z for ZZZZZ….. #AtoZchallenge

I need a lot of sleep after this month. I’ve started a new job, I’ve started a new project, I’ve approved edits and have sent books out for proofing, I’ve done lots of other things.  I’ve also let go of a lot of things I just can’t sustain.  I’ve collapsed projects, I’ve cut down on […]
