Hi everyone! I'm a writer from South Africa and have self-published, as well as been published in the anthology of a short story writing competition. Phew. Now that that's out of the way, I gotta say I love voice in novels, enjoy most genres of books - especially quirky detective novels - and am big on cutting out filters in prose. I've got a blog and a service, but I won't mention it here because I'm sure it's against the rules according to the FAQ. Ultimate goal: finish my paranormal detective series! Current goal: don't eat too many chocolates. I can't wait to read everyone's stuff and eventually post my own for review. Keep writing.
