Book Review by Jacqueline Miller

If you are an aspiring author, I recommend The Author Mindset by Falcon Storm.

This is a concise book with plenty of advice about writing and publishing your book. It explains that you need definite writing goals and to set yourself deadlines. You need to know what genre your book is, who your readers will be and how you hope to publish.

This book gives common sense advice about the world of writing and publishing.

I received my free copy of this book from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.


The Wrong Spell by Jacqueline Miller 1st January 2015

The Wrong Spell  by Jacqueline Miller 1st January 2015.

I haven’t posted on here for a while. I’ve been busy doing Nanowrimo and am now editing my WIPs and writing a new book about time travel on Wattpad.

Today I discovered an app which I’ve used to put speech bubbles on my cartoon. I’m experimenting with text and have let my vampire speak in red bubbles. Oooh, scary!



Lucy and Fabian meet the old bookseller by Jacqueline Miller

Okay, I know I’m supposed to be writing several thousands of words a day for Nanowrimo, but today I drew a picture instead. It’s a scene from the back story of my WIP, (work in progress), a fantasy novel that begins in 1899 in France.

Here my MC, Lucy, and her father have entered a bookshop. For some unknown reason, the bookseller refuses to sell Lucy the book she wants.

I’ve co written a musical theatre type song to go with this scene. 



My Drawing of a Princess by © Jacqueline Miller



This is my drawing of Princess Fenella who is one of the main characters in a book I’m writing.

I used some apps on my iPad to do the drawing.

Some of the chapters are on this blog.
I need to get myself back on target and finish writing three books. I was very productive when doing a recent 14 day challenge where I had to post a new story every day. I’ve written a few chapters in the month since it finished.

I’m now giving myself a deadline to finish writing the books by 31st October 2014.


How It All Began. A Cartoon by Jacqueline Miller

How It All Began. A Cartoon by Jacqueline Miller

Today, I started drawing the back story to my cartoon The Wrong Spell. I’m also writing it as a graphic novel and a regular novel. Today’s cartoon took ages as I had to use several apps on the iPad.

This shows the moment Janey and Gerald meet for the first time.

I hope you like it.
