Book Club #1 - Eragon

Every good writer is born from an avid reader.  I know a lot of people that would like to be part of a book club but haven't got the time to spare to attend meetings and events due to life getting in the way - it always seems to get in the way of one thing or another.

Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to start a virtual book club.  I'll set the books initially, just until I get some suggestions and then they can be drawn from a hat.  By doing this it'll introduce you to writers and genres that you may not have considered before and allow you to learn from their writing styles.

Book #1 - Eragon by Christopher Paolini
This is one of the many books that I feel hasn't received the recognition it deserves after the film adaptation was such a disappointment.  This is the first book in Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle which - to this day - is the best Fantasy/Adventure genre I have read.  It is so well written that I fell in love with it instantly.

As you can probably tell I have read this book already but it was some time ago so I am going to be reading it again and writing a book review once I have finished it.  I'd love for you to read this with me and write your own review.

Below are the amazon links to both Eragon and the complete Inheritance Cycle.

Don't forget to give me your suggestions to the next book I should include in the book club.


  1. I had the book sitting around, never got around to reading it. Now I have a reason to read it.

NaNo Prep 2018 Begins

So if you don't know about NaNoWriMo and you want to be a writer you have to check it out.  It is an annual, community writing event where writers of all levels come together to challenge themselves to achieve a predetermined word count between 1 - 30 November.  Every year this begins in September with NaNo Prep, the organisers of NaNoWriMo provide us with a lot of writing resources and challenges on the run up to November so that when we hit Day 1 of the challenge we should have a plot ready to go and can focus on writing every day to hit our word count. Make sure you check it out here: One thing I must say; don't be disheartened if you don't hit your word count.  NaNo is a difficult challenge, especially if you haven't attempted it before - I myself have failed to hit my word count on a few attempts.  Regardless of your word count you should end the month with something that you can work with, whether that is four chapters or fourteen cha
