The first class of my 12 week course was on Monday, and it was just as inspiring as Saturday's. This course is obviously taking things a bit slower so I am not so rushed to get stuff up here.But watch this space- it will get more interesting! Particularly after the creativity brainstorm we had on Monday...

If Catherine Ryan Howard could bottle her energy and sell it, she would never have to work again! A workshop packed with such energy and enthusiasm I came home absolutely buzzing and dying to get started. The day was also packed with facts, some of which were so unfamiliar I felt the edges of my brain frying. But I will get the better of them in time and not only "Despite the Angels" will hit Amazon, - "Revisited Sins", my second novel, can follow it fairly quickly.
My next job is to find a professional editor for "Despite the Angels", and then start on designing the cover.
If you want to know more about Catherine, her blog is called 'Catherine Caffeinated', which is a brilliant title - just sums her up. Unfortunately (?) I don't drink coffee, so can't emulate her....

Tomorrow starts the process. I am signed up for a one day course with Catherine Ryan Howard, via "Inkwell". She has published herself digitally, and is now sharing her knowledge. I had booked for this long before I decided to do the Independent College course, but I hope I will be able to use the information from both courses together to get my book out there online and in hard copy. So off I go at an ungodly hour of a Saturday morning, to the St George yacht club in Dunlaoghaire, to absorb all the info.
