Thanks, adulation and round-up

There was wine, there was humour, there were books. FICTAVIA has grown into a nice little blog with its pool of lovely followers (hi guys!) and more views for my grumpy rambling than I thought I could get or was worth.

This year has been a bit difficult for me, as I finished education and have started to try and find a job. Fictavia started off as a small project to save me going completely crazy. It’s grown an impressive amount in four months.

I’ve also been lucky enough to be taken on as a reviewer and features writer over at FOR BOOKS’ SAKE. Two more articles from me are due early in the new year – I’ll post the links when they’re ready. And  I got to write a guest post for one of my favourite blogs, THESE LITTLE WORDS

In the new year, there will be more book reviews. There will also be more humour posts and other miscellanea, as I move from a simple books blog to a more varied presentation of who I am and what I think.

Basically, starting this blog has saved a tiny bit of my sanity and opened up some opportunities for me, and that wouldn’t have happened if people weren’t reading my posts or tweets. So – I’d like to extend a big thank you to all who read my posts. You’re all great.
