Another small update to the software

Just added another couple of story ideas and another first name to the software and uploaded it so it's ready and raring to go!

Book Review: Thomas Wildus and The Book of Sorrows by J.M. Bergen

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5


Just wow.

I was drawn in right from the first page.

It took me 3 days to read it cover to cover and my hot drinks frequently cooled because I was so drawn into the story.  It's a good job that I still drink cold tea and coffee otherwise they would all have had to be tipped down the sink and I wouldn't have had a very happy hubby after forcing him into the kitchen to make them for me!  lol

I can totally see why it won an award - it's an amazing book that drew me in more intensely than Harry Potter did.

Dunno if this is the author's debut book or not, but they've definitely got an awesome career ahead of them if it is! J.M. Bergen deserves more of the praise that JK Rowling had because they drew me right in from the first page but the Harry Potter was sometimes like walking through treacle.

Keep writing, J.M. Bergen and you will hopefully find a well-deserved following similar to JK Rowling!

Now would be a good time to...

...become a member 'cos my in-house geek is going to put both pieces of software not only as pieces of software as they currently are, but he's also going to put them onto webpages for my members to pay for exclusive access.

The webpage versions will NOT be available to non-members and you will only have access for as long as you are a member because apparently there's a way to get webpages to check the current database of members to make sure you really are a member before it lets you access the pages of software.  As soon as you're a member you will have access to the exclusive members shop where you can pay to get access to the webpages as soon as they are online.

The membership prices WILL go up when the software is online so that I can cover the extra costs involved in coding the details of each piece of software onto the webpages.

Neither of my members have joined the mailing list yet, despite sending them both invites.  It's a free part of your membership and the only way to get member-exclusive news from me and when I've updated one of the pages in the members area too!  Go on, accept the invitation before it expires!  If it's already expired, just let me know and I'll send you a fresh invite!

Just updated the shops

I've just added another piece of software to the members shop and updated all the images in both shops.

Go and take a peek and hopefully buy something/several somethings from the most appropriate one for you!

It's worth becoming a member because you get access to members only software as well as exclusive products at cheaper prices and my members get exclusive access to me too!

Go on, apply to be a member, pay, and enjoy the benefits of your membership!

Just paid for the hosting for another year

Just paid for the hosting of this site for another year.  £46 for the hosting is sooo worth it to keep everything online and working.  The two membership applications helped to pay for that and I'm soo grateful to you both!

There's two lots of software in the member's shop and there's another one currently being coded by my hubby... your membership gives you access to the member's only software for as long as you want to use it after you've paid for it.  The only reason you need to pay for it again is if you have to format your hard drive or you get a new computer or whatever.

To save you a bit of money, I suggest that you save the software to some kind of USB device so that you only need to pay £1 for a new cereal number instead of paying the full price again.

I'm just trying to save you as much money as possible while still covering my own costs - just the two bits of software has cost £2,000 plus £50 a year for the domain name and hosting and another £1,000 for the software that's currently being written... it's an expensive business but I want to keep the costs as low as possible for you.

Just updated the members area again

Just added the second piece for my members... this one starts in the Autumn so you've got several months to perfect your manuscripts and get it/them ready for submission to this new place!

If you're not a member, why not join up now so that you aren't left in the dark about these things??

Just updated the members area

Just found out about an submission window for PB writers and illustrators.  My two members can find out more by logging into the members area and if you're not a member, what are you waiting for?

I've got another update to add to the members area in a bit too, so be on the lookout for another blog post about it!

Just been rejected, so...

Just been rejected after nearly 4 months so that's a lot better than the couple of weeks between submission and rejection when I started subbing!

Gives me something to do tomorrow now - sub to the next agency on my spreadsheet!

Last year the rejection would have shattered my heart and made me suicidal but not any more... it still hurts, but I'm not taking it personally now - they rejected the manuscript, not me personally!
