I provide support to academics as an Academic Career Guide through the Academic Writing Studio with a focus writing, publishing, juggling myriad responsibilities, and career planning to prioritise effectively. My Short Guides series is intended to complement this work, providing the general principles and practical advice to help you get unstuck and make decisions that will help you achieve your goals.


Save the Guides for later here on Goodreads, or head over to Bookshop.org to purchase.

Before starting my own business and publishing, I earned a PhD in Sociology from the University of Essex and worked as both a Lecturer in Sociology, then later a programme officer and policy analyst for a research funding agency.

My strong favourite is a Short Guide to peer review to complement The Scholarly Writing Process and Scholarly Publishing. (less)

Terry Pratchett
“Reality is not digital, an on-off state, but analog. Something gradual. In other words, reality is a quality that things possess in the same way that they possess, say, weight. Some people are more real than others, for example. It has been estimated that there are only about five hundred real people on any given planet, which is why they keep unexpectedly running into one another all the time.”
Terry Pratchett, Moving Pictures

Jane Smiley
“Every first draft is perfect, because all a first draft has to do is exist.”
Jane Smiley

Terry Pratchett
“Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.”
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather

Terry Pratchett
“There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty.
The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass! Who's been pinching my beer?
And at the other end of the bar the world is full of the other type of person, who has a broken glass, or a glass that has been carelessly knocked over (usually by one of the people calling for a larger glass) or who had no glass at all, because he was at the back of the crowd and had failed to catch the barman's eye. ”
Terry Pratchett, The Truth

Terry Pratchett
“The universe contains any amount of horrible ways to be woken up, such as the noise of the mob breaking down the front door, the scream of fire engines, or the realization that today is the Monday which on Friday night was a comfortably long way off.

A dog's wet nose is not strictly speaking the worst of the bunch, but it has its own peculiar dreadfulness which connoisseurs of the ghastly and dog owners everywhere have come to know and dread. It's like having a small piece of defrosting liver pressed lovingly against you.”
Terry Pratchett, Moving Pictures
