I’m a book character!

Creative Writing and My Author Journey

So as you lot following my blog love a bit of creative writing, I’m guessing that means in the majority of cases you also love a bit of reading! For about a year or two now I have been reading free books in exchange for an honest review for authors and publishing companies. Recently I started the ‘E’ series by Kate Wrath. I have read up to book 3 and am now just waiting on the release of Elergy. I have been in contact with the author herself and she told me about a competition running on her site.
