Yes, newer writers, we all do it, can't be many writers who don't over-write. But more experienced writers sometimes too... I think it's where a sharp-eyed editor is so useful, and once you've been edited, it makes you more aware of how/when you over-write?

Laura beat me to it, but yes, is the place to start, first in her paranormal crime series. Thank you!

I agree with you Peter. I critique and edit a lot of novels, and over-writing is ubiquitous, regardless of style. A good editor spots it, points it out, and suggests it is deleted. A good writer agrees!!! (JOKING... sort of...)

You have to keep those that formed you as a reader. I couldn’t bear to get rid of my childhood books. Sentimental value of favourite books is huge isn’t it?

It is, will deffo be watching second series. Everything about it is nigh on perfect. Will watch it again too, I think I “missed” a few bits, like you do. Ricky Gervais doesn’t disappoint.

I have kept my childhood books as they feel almost like my limbs. Without those books I wouldn’t be doing what I do now. Can’t get rid. They come under both Beautiful and Read Again ❤️📚

"Going through" my books. I do this every couple of years & must admit I get rid easily nowadays (never used to). Not quite Marie Kondo but I try to keep only those that are beautiful or those I might read again. I feel better if I let go of material stuff, inc books (SORRY)!

I have to say, I loved it! Of course it's not a patch on the book, but for pure spectacle, I though it was fabulous. Very stylish. But not one for "purists" maybe...!

Ha, seems like blurbs should be cancelled. Always somebody who doesn’t like something. I might try an “anti-blurb”... “A very good read. You should buy it”. Would that do??

I finally "did" a box set and "binge-watched" a Netflix series! Yes, 21st century, I am now present. was absolutely amazing, exactly my kind of drama/comedy, and I didn't feel guilty for not working while watching. Usually I'm sworn off TV but this was exceptional.

Thanks! Will read the Chekhov shorts first then, and also the novella, I love novellas. Annette is right, it's finding the TIME for very long novels that is difficult.

Have only read one Russian novel, Fathers and Sons, which I did really enjoy. What should I also read? I have Chekhov short stories line up on my Kindle.

I read Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates a few years ago, absolutely sucked me in and I will read it again. I usually avoid long books but it didn't feel long, I just sort of lost myself in it. It didn't even feel like I was reading. It's a monumental book, a true "experience".

That sounds great. I am a small UK indie publisher. One of my authors writes paranormal crime and her books deserve a much wider audience. Would love to be featured. Thanks!

I read Lowborn over Christmas, Kerry, still thinking about it now, so much of it resonated with me. Raced through it and loved it, brilliantly written and very honest and open. Thank you for writing it x

I think it's something to do with the sun coming up, the sun going down, the sun coming up... over and over again. I think it's unstoppable too. Buck up. You're a novelist, a very fine one, and you couldn't have achieved that when you were 18.

So far in 2020 my income at LWB has outstripped expenditure. This is a Very Good Thing and doesn't happen often! OK, it's by about £5.54, but who's counting??
