This week’s Weekly Geeks asks: Tell your readers what is it about “an” author that you are most passionate about, that have you coming back for more from them, following their every blog post – literally blackmailing people to read their books? Who are some of your all time favourite authors? And what is it […]


I haven’t done a meme in absolutely ages, so when Mae from Mad Bibliophile tagged/awarded me with the “Honest Scrap” meme, I figured it would be a good time to change that.
