#MondayBlogs: Author Spotlights: Inspiration to write


Author Spotlights-

Today, I’d like to share with you a new idea I’ve had regarding Author/Blogger/Writer Spotlights. I’ve decided to blast this out on a Monday using the hashtag #MondayBlogs Bad RedHead Media – Monday Blogs – Why You Should Be Participating– I hope this is okay Rachel, @BadRedheadMedia (I’m not promoting my own book!)

I shall be offering the opportunity to guest post on M J Mallon – Kyrosmagica blog with a special theme that means so much to me –  Inspiration.

I just love this quote by Audrey Hepburn:

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!

Authors will be encouraged to write a short post considering these prompts.

  1. What inspires you to write? This should be personal to you, but might include suggestions such as:  a walk in nature, overheard conversations, a new job, a travelling adventure, a trip abroad, meeting a new friend, or an old flame, art, music, books you’ve read…..  The list is inexhaustible! A strange inexplicable desire to write. Witnessing an altercation or an event, etc, etc….. I’d love to hear your experiences!
  2. Inspiration to keep trying and improving even when the writing journey gets tough.
  3. How to overcome writer’s block by focusing on refreshing new inspirational ideas.
  4. Favourite inspirational quotes that you refer to and sites such as Brainy Quote that you find inspiring.
  5. Authors and blogging friends that have your back and encourage you to keep on writing. They can be inspiring to.
  6. Overcoming obstacles through writing and creativity – photography, art, and music as therapy.

The piece should be in the region of 500 – 1,250 words and can include any or all of the above prompt ideas.  I shall need accompanying promotional materials – author bio and cover reveals,  a short summary of your book/s, excerpts, links to your blog and book.

The lovely Heena Rathore will be joining in soon. She will be doing an author spotlight, on the theme inspiration with details of her Psychological Thriller Deceived, so keep a look out for that.

Alternatively, if you’d like to follow the traditional format of interview questions, or a simpler author spotlight/cover reveal I’m happy to do that to. I’m an easy going kind of gal! Do get in touch if you’re interested.

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. Great idea with a theme that is so important to us all ☺
    Would you consider guest posts from would-be authors as well as published ones? If so then I would love to contribute.
    Best of luck with the project!

  2. Awesome Marje. I’m a little piled up at the moment, but would love to hop on when I can. I’ll PM you when I’m there. Till then I’m eager to read! 🙂 xx

  3. Wonderful idea, Marje! I’m quite busy at the moment but that’s not to say I won’t take you up on the offer in the future 🙂 🙂

  4. Way to go, Marje! There will be so much to learn from these posts by all the different authors and writers. It’s always inspiring to know what inspired others and this idea is very innovative. I’ll be keeping an eye out for these posts here.
    And thanks a lot for hosting me. It’s an honor for me and I’m so excited to write for you and your lovely web-home 🙂
    Oh, BTW your website looks amazing! I love the theme and the name of this one. Sorry, it took me so long to drop by and check this.
    All the very best and lots of love! <3

    1. Hi Heena, yes indeed there will be so much to learn. Looking forward to discovering what my guests will come up with. It shall be such a pleasure hosting you Heena. Thank you for being so kind about my new web home. It’s fairly new, perhaps not perfect yet, but getting there. All the best, much love Marje xx

  5. Hi Marje, this sounds like a terrific idea for a series of guest posts. I would love to write a post on how my children and my artwork inspire me to write. If an article sprinkled with fondant figures and cakes would fit with your thoughts, please email me at sirchoc@outlook.com.
