New edition of my novel…

Hey guys,

I was excited yesterday to receive my new edition of my novel, Where the Sun Rises, which includes a map I used to put certain points of the plot. I have also included a small glossary of terms, it is not exhaustive but I thought I should include some Kurdish language in there.

Anyway, I am excited by the results. Thanks for reading and I hope you and your family are safe! Take care, love Suz

Where the Sun Rises best seller…

Creative beginnings…

Hey guys, I have been recently pondering about how there are countless ways one can start a novel. At the moment I am working on my next novel and I am enjoying exploring this process of creating different beginnings for the book. I am also experimenting with first and third person.

The thing is with the beginning of writing a novel we have to experiment and start writing so that we can work out what we think will be best. We need to not get paralysed by the thought of so many options (haha). This is a hazard isn’t it? When you get frozen by choice. So, don’t do this, just start writing.

Beginnings are so important – and another good thing to do is to read other books you have enjoyed the opening of. Work out why you love these and think about whether you can incorporate this into your work.

So, enjoy the process too. I am enjoying the creative process and simply exploring options at the moment.

If you are curious about my current book it is available for sale on Amazon, and all online outlets as well such as Book Depository, Barnes and Noble and other outlets. 🙂

Thanks for reading! Until next time! Go forth, enjoy your creativity! 🙂 Suzanne
