- Rhythm is an obvious element in poetry but it’s just as important in stories, novels, even essays. As timing is to the sportsman or comedian, so rhythm is to the writer. Today, Bill Kirton ALLi author member, examines writing rhythm across literature.
- This week’s Inspirational Indie Authors podcast sees Howard Lovy interviewing Debbie Young about how Debbie has traveled from early promise, to a detour writing promotional blurbs, to fulfilling her dream as an indie author of mysteries in the best of the British tradition.
- The Self-Publishing Advice Conference is almost upon us, get the full speaker line up to help you plan your attendance and sign up here.

Lots to learn and ponder, as ever.
