All writers know the value of reviews to the success of their books. Yet most readers don’t review- even if they’ve really enjoyed the book – for a variety of reasons. Time is always a factor in the hectic, modern world. There are some people, of course, who simply don’t like the idea, or aren’t comfortable expressing their thoughts for others to read. Perhaps they feel daunted when they see the long, detailed reviews done by Amazon top reviewers and professional editors. Yet even short, to the point reviews are greatly appreciated by authors. Every single one adds to that all-important number that shows up on Amazon or other online retailers.

Sunsets

Two nights in a row this week I managed to photograph rather nice sunsets over the field next to my house. The first night I watched (and photographed of course!) as the sun sank below the horizon in a gorgeous golden glow. The next night the sky turned a lovely mottled pink. I thought I'd share some...

She liked this property but… it didn’t speak to her. Her gaze strayed from the garden and quiet streets towards the house opposite. “If you’re interested,” the estate agent said,...

One-Four Challenge: February Week Two

Here's my second edit for Robyn's One-Four Challenge. This week I wanted to create a soft, dreamy effect. I began by opening the original in camera raw on Photoshop Editions (the first time I've ever explored this area of the program). I reduced the contrast, shadows and saturation and increased the exposure, highlights and whites. I then also slightly... Continue Reading →

This is my second entry for this week’s Friday Fictioneers Challenge run by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week's picture prompt was provided by Melanie Greenwood. The challenge is to write a story within 100 words.

Cee’s Which Way Challenge 2015: Week #5 – Steam Train

It powers over the viaduct, a metallic monster with fire in its belly, breathing steam and smoke into the air in pungent billows; a marvel of Victorian engineering. Its passage is accompanied by the roaring clatter of metal against metal. Behind the engine trail carriages, filled with passengers enjoying a touch of old-fashioned luxury as... Continue Reading →
