Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. It’s nice for people to do this – but, it’s a shame that many decent blogs are also overlooked because of some popularity contest. It is what it is, though…anything to do with people is soured by that eventuality.

    1. I think the idea behind it is to bring to the attention blogs who try to help and support other bloggers – such as Chris at the Story Reading blog. Yes he is popular but it isn’t all about that. I do get your point though. Perhaps someome should do a similiar post featuring new, up and coming blogs, or decent blogs that need to be discovered. That would be a great idea too.

      1. I’ve been looking for advice on how to get my autobiography published for the past two years…so I can’t say that I’ve gotten any help or support.
        Help and support is limited and selective, from what I see.

      2. My point is, most bloggers are only willing to help those who don’t really need help! If people already have one or more books published, what help do they need? It seems to me that they should be giving advice, help, and support to those of us who are doing our damnedest to get our first book out of the gate! Any suggestions on how to get that accomplished?

      3. I’m still in the unpublished phase myself. I tried for a long time to get traditionally published but it just didn’t happen. So now I am intending to self publish, hopefully this year. I’m not sure what you have tried up until this point. If you want any more advice I am happy to help if I can, you can contact me via my email: marjma2014@gmail.com.

      4. I’ve been looking into self-publishing for the past three years, after also trying the “traditional” route…so not far off from what you’ve done.
