Maquita Donyel Irvin
“I didn't come looking for you the day you uninvitedly appeared on my doorstep

How did we go from nonchalant conversation
me waiting for you to turn me off
with corny jokes and mind dumbing conversation
to
love

To love and mind blowing chemistry that I've yet to make sense of
What are you here to teach me?”
Maquita Donyel Irvin, Stories of a Polished Pistil: Lace and Ruffles

“The ocean swells around us. Sometimes, we are in a bowl of water and sometimes on the top of the lip. The horizon curves.

In theory, anyone is on the top of their world at every moment, given that the Earth is truly round. But, it’s hard to see that in a subway under New York City and completely obvious out here.”

Karl Wiggins
“It's a difficult path that we tread, us Indie self-publishers, but we're not alone. How many bands practicing in their dad’s garage have heard of a group from the neighbourhood who got signed by a recording company? Or how many artists who love to paint, but are not really getting anywhere with it hear of someone they went to art school with being offered an exhibition in a gallery? How many chefs who love to get creative around food hear of someone else who’s just landed a job with Marco Pierre White?
There’s no difference between us and them. There is, however, a huge difference in how everyone else perceives the writer. And there’s a huge difference between all of us – the writers, the musicians, the composers, the chefs, the dance choreographers and to a certain extent the tradesmen - and the rest of society in that no one understands us. It’s a wretched dream to hope that our creativity gets recognised while our family thinks we’re wasting our time when the lawn needs mowing, the deck needs painting and the bedroom needs decorating.
It’s acceptable to go into the garage to tinker about with a motorbike, but it’s a waste of a good Sunday afternoon if you go into the garage and practice your guitar, or sit in your study attempting to capture words that have been floating around your brain forever.”
Karl Wiggins, Self-Publishing In the Eye of the Storm

Michele Amitrani
“Scrivo perché mi piace concretizzare su carta mondi impossibili ma necessari. Scrivo perché voglio dare carne alle mie idee e perché voglio vederle crescere e svilupparsi in direzioni impensabili. Scrivo perché farlo mi dà un modo unico di comunicare con me stesso e mi insegna in un modo particolare chi sono e che cosa voglio.”
Michele Amitrani, Confessione di un Autore Indipendente

Lily Amis
“Being on Facebook as an Author and listing your books is like being a tiny single word in a giant dictionary! If people don’t search for you they don’t find you. They don’t take notice of you. They don’t even know you exist! Thats the hard reality of Socialmedia!”
Lily Amis

Take the madness of reality and shape it into something worth sharing.”
Peter James West

“...I don’t know why you’re sulking, I wasn’t going to give up my holiday to sit and nurse you from a break-up with a guy I told you not to deal with…He was your Gynaecologist for crying out loud. You don’t mix business with pleasure, and not with a man who knows more about your insides than you.”
S.L. Gibson, Love Changes Everything
