Mini Reviews: Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia & Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster. In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try. Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she […]


Where Did The Time Go? | update

Posted 14 June, 2017 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Updates / 0 Comments

It’s been a while, it’s true. Nearly a whole month since my last post. Several things happened. I went to NY for a week. I went to BookCon. I vlogged…terribly. I tried to save the edited vlog…and it failed. Ten times. Jeez! I also thought about my blog and the future of it (eck! future!) and realised for the amount of times I actually post on it, it’s not worth spending out nearly £100 every other year just for hosting/security/domain, that sort of thing, when […]



a few minutes to waste | update

Posted 11 May, 2017 by katheryn13 in Updates / 0 Comments

UPDATE I have four minutes before I’m to start my nightly word count thingy and so far it’s my third night and I’ve done pretty well. I try to aim for 1k at 7.30pm each day. I missed yesterday because I was out. Which you probably know, but I’ll tell you anyway: I started getting therapy. Wahay go me! I’ve only had 2 sessions so far but it’s going okay, and she’s really easy to talk to. I’ll be honest, I was worried I wouldn’t […]



Whoops | #CampNanowrimo ’17

Whoops | #CampNanowrimo ’17

CAMP NANOWRIMO ’17 UPDATE TWO   Oh crap. It’s been a lot longer than a week since my last update, hasn’t it? *shakes head* Sorry. Anyway, how’s Camp Nanowrimo 17 going? Well….um….. I started a new idea. *cringes* Don’t hate me. I can’t help myself! It’s a problem. But in any case, I actually somewhat outlined this new idea so I have Act 1 and Act 2 all laid out ready to write up – I’ve written chapter 1 already and it’s going good. I […]

Name Game | Writing Fantasy + GIFS

Yeah, so my last post was a  little…intense. I know. I’m sorry. So I want to write fantasy. HOW? How does one even DO that? I mean, so many writer’s manage it, but how do I? That is what I’m asking! I have an idea, a slight one, and not at all fully formed, but it’s there, poking its head around the corner like an over-excited child at Christmas. I’ve even drawn a somewhat ugly looking map…only because I kind of had to. And let […]

Chill Out | personal

There are things that have been taking WAY too much space in my head. Worries, just…frustrating things.  I swear as I’ve gotten older, especially with social networking, I’ve become needier? Desperate almost. I hate it. I hate how social media has changed me. I mean, you’d think by now I’d be used to being lonely, to not having the life I want? But I’m not.  So you know what? I need to put back up those walls. Try and distance myself from social media for a […]



Review: 4.5 stars to Forever Geek (Geek Girl #6) by Holly Smale

Review: 4.5 stars to Forever Geek (Geek Girl #6) by Holly Smale

My name is Harriet Manners and I’ll be a geek forever… Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is. Modelling isn’t a sure-fire route to popularity. Neither is making endless lists. The people you love don’t expect you to transform into someone else. Statistically, you are more likely to not meet your Australian ex-boyfriend in Australia than bump into him there. So on the trip of a lifetime Down Under Harriet’s to-do lists are gone and it’s Nat’s time to shine! Yet with nearly-not-quite-boyfriend Jasper […]

Did I do it? | My Writing Journey

    Hi again! Remember me? Yeah you do, you little monkeys!  Guess what?  … … Guessed yet?  I finished my first draft of my ‘peach street’ magic story. Yeah okay don’t get too excited. I might have gotten to the end, but that doesn’t mean it’s finished. Obviously. I wrote ‘the end’ but it didn’t really feel like the right ending. I won’t know what my true ending will be until I’ve edited because,  a) I need to change the POV to first person b) […]
