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. This sounds a very helpful tool for writers. However I would add that I believe you cannot discount the need for graphic design skills. If one is presented with a vast number of options for fonts, colours and styles, then this is where art and design talents come in. I have just paid a young graphic designer (a university friend of my daughter’s) to create a beautiful professional logo and banner for me. My daughter has graphic design skills herself, with a degree in creative media, and she has created banners for me using the software she has on her Mac. Neveretheless I feel sure many writers reading this blog will be delighted to know that the software is available for them to use, at such low cost.

    1. Yes, my daughter is a keen photographer/media studies student so I will be using some of her photography, video skills in marketing my debut book. Canva is a great tool to use on blog posts. I use it regularly for my micropoetry posts, and for headers such as author spotlights.

  2. I should try these things properly and not give up at the first hurdle. She makes it sound so simple but the phrase ‘once you know what you are doing’ is lurking in there.

    1. I use if often particularly to house my micropoetry in a nice design format. I’ve also used it for author spotlights, etc. Once you’ve mastered the basics it tends to be addictive! It really is pretty easy to use Mary, hope you give it a whirl.

  3. Thank you for this info Marje…I’m always interested in tools that can assist with presentation so I’ve saved the link 🙂
