Wednesday Wisdom: Writers edition

Here’s some sound advice for you, this afternoon.

My advice? I like to work on character descriptions when I have a rough storyline and then do character collages of what they look like, hobbies, where they live and quotes that suit their personality. I then design my book cover and then I begin to write. I don’t know why, but this works for me. – Rachel Marie

Is Carefree and Consequences the right book for you?

Hi I am a student on the creative writing course with OCA. My name is Rachel I’m 21, Welsh and an author. In January last year I finally had the guts to publish my romance novel carefree and consequences with Amazon publishing.

I was wondering if anyone would like to buy a copy? This is the book in two sentences: I hope you buy a copy of my 1950s romance novels where teenagers Annie May and Lewis land themselves in hot water over their summer dalliances. They have been cut off from family and are at rock bottom. They are faced with a huge responsibility with just their teenage friends to help, some of whom are already making future plans. Can Annie May and Lewis have a bright future or will a stupid mistake always hang over them? Here’s the UK link:
