I've just uploaded a new video. In this video I talk about how I began writing and the long road to publication. It takes a while for many writers to discover their writing style and to find what they truly want to write, and that's how it was for me. It also takes time to learn your craft and resilience to cope with the rejection letters and disappointments along the way.

I first seriously started to write fiction with the aim of publication over twenty years ago. I wrote at weekends while running my own marketing and training company during the week, first trying my hand at historical romantic fiction before turning to crime! (Writing it that is, not committing it). My historical novels are still on computer... maybe one day I might revive them!

I hope you enjoy listening to and watching the new video. You can see more videos and interviews on my official web site www.rowmark.co.uk

Thanks, Grant. Great news about your thriller and well done. It takes a lot of stamina to keep going but if you genuinely love writing and creating then you never give up, do you? I shall look out for your thriller SWITCH in the UK.

Great stuff, Pauline, just listened to it.
My writing journey has been the same length as yours with my debut thriller, SWITCH, just finally arriving in book stores in the UK in two weeks time — July 2.
