January turned out to be a good month for reading, with some interesting books included in the reading list.
In a change to my planned first post for 2014, I’d like to talk to you (if I may) about a couple of articles I recently came across on my daily trawl of the internet. Both of them shed some interesting light on the publishing industry as it stands today, and in particular offer a revealing insight into the reality of what aspiring authors can or cannot expect to gain in return for their time and effort.
So I’m a little later than usual with this post, but as you may have noticed things have been a little dead on here in general. In the interest of getting the ball rolling again, I decided to make this my first post of the New Year, and I will be following this up with a proper post over the next few days with updates about my writing and stuff. 🙂
This month’s been really light on the old reading front, with only four books having made their way through my Kindle.
I know I said I was going to try to keep you all updated regarding my progress towards my self-imposed writing targets this month, and I know that since I said that I’ve only posted one entry on here, and I apologise for not keeping my word. However, in my defence things haven’t gone all that well since my last post.
It’s been a pretty interesting week since my last post, and as I sort of promised to keep you all updated concerning my self-imposed challenge of turning out fifty thousand words in November I thought I’d better put finger to keyboard and say a few words.
