As a book cover designer, I work with a lot of writers, so turning to writing myself has been an interesting challenge.

But no matter what you're creating – writing, art, music etc – my advice is to do it, try it, and believe in your work. If you're fired up about what you're working on, it will interest other people.

In terms of writing, the importance of having somebody else proofread and edit your work is invaluable. They'll spot things you missed and have suggestions for improvement you didn't think of. It's very easy to become possessive of a writing project and want control of everything, but there comes a point when it has to be put in the hands of a potential reader, and those people will really help refine your work.

Professional cover art is the other critically important thing you should invest in. While the likes of Amazon have allowed anybody to self-publish their work, it needs to stand out among a heavily saturated market. You could have written the best book in the world, but a cheap stock cover or amateur artwork will let you down.

Your book's cover is the first thing anybody will see of your work - it's got to make you want to pick it up or click on it to find out more.(less)

A highly creative piece of work. Imagine a sort of film noire Dark City with mind-bending time meddling, and you have a basic idea for the premise. The mysterious city of Nocturna is a superb, thought provoking setting for the story - the whole world ...more

Somewhat ironically, I found myself abandoning this book about halfway through. I simply wasn't enjoying it. There are too many words. It's too slow, far too long, and lacking suspense or action.
