How to Improve Your Grammar and Writing Skills – 6 Easy Tips

I love grammar. I know, most people don’t and with that claim they often give me those looks as if I had lost my mind 😉 All those pesky rules with their irritating exceptions could drive anyone mad.

Money Heist - La Casa de Papel

Why I Cringe when I Think of Watching Money Heist Season 5 on Netflix

Don’t get me wrong. I love Money Heist – original name: La Casa de Papel in Spanish. Its original name intrigued me and as soon as I started watching episode 1 of season 1, I was hooked, seriously hooked! The story sucked me in and the characters are real, showing a very humane side. You […]

The Rise of the Stone - longer excerpt

The Rise of the Stone - Azure's story

Pre-Order Fantasy Book: The Rise of the Stone – Prequel to The Path of the Stone

Until now, I haven’t made a pre-order available so early, but so far I have also never written two books that were both based on dreams and both about the same characters. In November 2020 I had a dream about me battling flying metallic snakes, and when I woke up I immediately wrote it down. […]


Paid Book Review Services – Do Rowanvale Books’ ARC and Book Review Services Deliver?

Paying a book reading pool to get beta reports is worth the investment, but obtaining an organic book review isn’t easy, especially if you’re an unknown author. If you published on Amazon it’s even harder, because Amazon has this (silly and counterproductive) rule that friends and family are not permitted to leave reviews. Why it […]

Automated Workflow Plugin – Thrive Automator

Starting a website, building traffic, writing articles; in summary, managing a website is a lot of work, at least if you want Google, Bing, and/or Yahoo to notice you. Writing blogs and hitting the publish button isn’t enough for readers to find you. You have to work to become visible. It often keeps me busy […]


Are you a Failed Author?

First of all, you’re not a failed author, although I guess we are all plagued by those damaging thoughts sometimes. There are plenty of reasons, though, to think that you have failed as a writer, and believe me, those reasons have nothing to do with you. So, before I begin, you are NOT a failed […]

Should I Write a Prologue? My Prologue for my Upcoming Release

There are writers who write and then there are writers who spout out rule after writing rule on social media. You can’t do this, you can’t do that. I hate this, I don’t like that. There seems to be an endless list of what we should and shouldn’t do, but in all honesty, a story […]
