Welcome to the Weave (or in this case links to other blogs, sites and general places of interest)

Often the best way to find other great independent fiction is through other indie authors, bloggers and sites. This page provides links to some of those sites.


Northampton Writers Ink – A link to an amazing group of local writers who have taught me a great deal and have produced a number of fantastic anthologies. Always worth a look.

The Secret Library Book Blog – a great site for fans of fantasy, paranormal and magical fiction, ran by fantasy author Rosie Wylor-Owen.

A fantastic Instagram account covering many areas of written work also close to my own heart. It’s full of reviews, chat and invariably beautifully created photographs capturing the book of the day / week. Well worth a check at She has also recently launched a fully fledged website and blog, with book reviews, bookish insights and commentaries, and a glimpse into her own writing.

The Clan Witch Writing and Publishing Blog – ran by Natasha Sinclair, this provides a fascinating insight into the author’s mind, updates on their current works, links to other books and interviews with a wide range of independent authors. https://clanwitch.home.

Middle Grade Author sites

ETFO award winner Mark Gunning’s ‘Itchygooney’ site provides links to his latest books, background to the adventures of William and Thomas, and more than the occasional hint that some of the shenanigans might well be autobiographical.
