This post is the fifth in a short series. If you want to check the others out, they’re probably listed in the sidebar. If not, a search should narrow things down.

The fourth day of the blog tour had two Instagram reviews on it. An issue I’ve struggled with on Instagram is how to keep track of what you’re writing when the visible space on screen is so limited. What I mean is that, although there doesn’t appear to be any word or character limit, when you’re typing you can only see so much at a time, which means lots of scrolling back and forth to check whether you’ve repeated yourself, spelt a name correctly or made any one of hundreds of potential errors (you can tell I spend a lot of time editing, can’t you?).

Of course, the simplest solution is to keep what you’ve said brief – but I’m not good at that. Fortunately, both bloggers that day were (and presumably still are). So I’ve included both links here, because you shouldn’t have to spend much time at either. The good news is that Helen at @midnightangelbookheaven is ‘looking forward to reading more by this author’, and Karen at @karenandherbooks has had her eyes opened to ‘a different style of writing’ (which I think is good).

Something To Think About

2020 has been a challenging year. One of the many outcomes of the pandemic has been the impact on small businesses, with many fighting hard to adapt and survive. If you can do it safely, please support small and local businesses. They make a difference. 

Although you might not think of them as such, among those small businesses are authors. If you’re looking to buy something special for Christmas, why not introduce your family and friends to a new author? Check out the authors you’ve discovered in recent times – you never know, they might be willing to provide a signed copy (or even include a personalised message).
