Hello - I'm Steven Smith, the author of the Tree of Life fantasy series, and the soon-to-be- released This Sacred Isle, a fantasy novel set during the Dark Ages.
This is my first post on my new blog and new website! Thank you for visiting - you're very welcome and I hope you'll visit regularly.
So, what can you expect from this blog?
I want to use my blog for much more than just promoting my books. As well as talking about books, films and music I love, I also plan to share many of my experiences (both good and bad!) as an indie author, and I hope this will help and encourage other writers out there.
Writing is tough, as is independent publishing, and I passionately believe the more we can share with our fellow writers, the better all our work can be. There is already a fantastic online community for indie authors and I hope in some small way to contribute. To this end I'll be adding weekly posts detailing my experience of writing my novel, This Sacred Isle, as well as other posts giving general writing / publishing advice and signposting some great sites for support and creativity.
And I don't want this blog to be my own personal soapbox - I'd love to hear your comments and ideas as well!
