Recently, I created a new group on Facebook aimed at introducing the readers I know with the writers I know.
Most of the writers I know are indie and small press authors. Many of the readers I know don't realise what a wealth of wonderful talent is out there, if they could just find it. So I thought it would be cool to create a group where the two could meet.
It's an idea I've had for a long time, but executed on the spur of the moment, when I had lots of other things I should have been doing, so the group will evolve - I hope - over time.
My aim is to bring together people who are passionate about books, and where readers can discover new authors.
Pop along, and see what's going on!
When I was writing Grace & Serenity, I knew Grace was going to be homeless for a while, but I also planned where her story would go next. In real life, there usually isn’t a plan when people find themselves homeless, and for much of the time there’s no next. This year has been difficult for so many people and proven that anyone can find themselves a position where they need help and support.
Plymouth is very close to my heart, so I was overjoyed when book blogger Literary Flits commented on it specifically in her review:
"Grace’s rapid slide into isolated homelessness is all too plausible though. Crawford vividly describes Plymouth’s urban landscape and I could visualise this city in a different light after having been shown it from Grace’s perspective."
For all copies of Grace & Serenity sold this December, I will be donating half the royalties to Shekinah. My goal is to reach 100 sales this month, which will mean I can provide a complete ‘meal’ for their Christmas appeal, Christmas Menu for Change.

I recently received a 2-star review, but rather than drown my sorrows in chocolate or stomp around the house, I wrote an essay to address the main issue - that the story was too depressing.
Tragic novels and plays have existed since the moment people started to tell each other stories. But, why do we need depressing books anyway?
