The Rough Draft

For anyone who caught my post towards the end of July, either here on on facebook, you may already know that I found June a bit of a struggle. I’m generally quite a positive person, who tends not to worry about things unless they’re actually happening — mostly because I feel it’s a waste of…

FREE for a limited time: Inyoni Rocks

Grab the second instalment to the Amanzimtoti Series, FREE, for the next few days only! June has been a bit of a rollercoaster of a month for me so far, and with enough ups and downs I honestly don’t know what day of the week it is anymore. So much so, I’d actually forgotten I was…

The Rough Draft: April 2020

Dusting this old thing off to once again bring you The Rough Draft, whereby I keep you updated on where I am in regards to my reading, writing, and other authorly goals. Unless, by some miracle, I actually start doing more ‘authorly’ things over the course of the month, I’ll be posting this review on the…
