So, anyone who knows me will know that I’m a bit of an awkward turtle when it comes to being in front of the camera. This week proved to be incredibly challenging in this respect as I found myself in the spotlight not once, but twice (more on that in my upcoming monthly recap)!

I’ve been told for ages (mainly by Dave) that we need to be doing videos for Writer’s Edit. But as a writer not model/TV presenter/youtube expert, I found the idea super daunting. Naturally, I put it off for over a year.

But with so many new and exciting things on the horizon, most of which include getting out of my comfort zone, I thought it was time to bite the bullet.

Check out my first ever video below…



If you’re keen to check out any of the sites I mentioned throughout the video, here they are:

Writer’s Edit (obviously), click here.

Kindling Volume III submission guidelines.

Short Story and Poem of the Month pieces and interviews.

Kyra’s fab video on her February books (also check out her blog in general, it’s the best).


With my first video experience done and dusted, hopefully there’ll be a few more of these heading your way in future.

Until next time,
