This year at the Ampthill Literary Festival here in the UK I will be running a workshop about the creative process, with specific reference to writing. It will help to understand how you can tap into your innate creativity and develop expertise in order to solve the problem of how to start, and keep, writing.

15: What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?

Going on an Arvon writing course. It gave me confidence that I had some talent and believe that I could be a writer, and that‘s priceless.

"The main character isn't pure. She's reminds me a bit of Amy from Gone Girl but she's not that evil. She's very good at manipulation. Her soon-to-be mother-in-law is a great adversary. They were playing mental chess with each other" - with thanks to a lovely reviewer

Relationships - we all have them. Some just happen to be better than others, and some just happen to be worse than others.

Along with everything else, mystery and attempted murder were also added to the mix.

The characters are indeed entertaining and really don‘t seem to be who they make themselves out to be.

“I didn‘t expect deception to be a character itself, but it is in so many ways to the very conclusion. The similarities between them begs the question, what the heck happened in Marjorie‘s life to make her so calculated? Will we ever know? For both of these women, the truth is something to be molded to fit the narrative of their lives.”

Perfect (romantic) comedy. Probably the best book I've read this year (so far).

I had so many laugh-out-loud moments and moments where I shook my head at the absurdity. This story felt very realistic, although it is very much fictitious (I hope, @KateFulfordAuthor).

The style of writing / the story telling was wonderful. It was great to live in the MC's head for a while. 😉

Simply hilarious heroine with snarky dialogue and witty plot involving Eve, her fiancé, and potential mother-in-law (also known as the devil)! Hard to believe it‘s a debut as it had me laughing out loud constantly! Not to mention that the author is Litten @KateFulfordAuthor so follow her and read this. You won‘t be disappointed!?

I feel I can‘t reiterate how much I loved Eve‘s narration. I can‘t wait to read more of Fullord‘s writing, so yeah, I‘ll definitely be on the lookout!”

Dear @KateFulfordAuthor, I started and read the sample of this yesterday. Thank you for the recommendation. Now I wish I knew how to tether my kindle to my phone to get the full book (no proper internet connection right now).

I'm already in love with Eve and I need to know how/why she fell for Gideon. Also, Marjorie 😱😵- she reminds me of my former in-laws.

Redwritinghood If you have an iPhone, you go into the settings and turn on Personal Hotspot. It then gives you a WiFi code to connect through your phone. 1y

OUTLAWS, the PERFECT word in ref. to Eve + her future MIL‘s turbulent relationship.
Eve‘s not good enough, son Gideon is in the dark and there‘s nothing his devoted mama won‘t do to keep them apart, she‘s an arrogant bitty with lies + tactics up her sleeves.
With safety at risk Eve conspires w/future MIL‘s twin, but their plan doesn‘t turn out as expected. Instead it turns into a BETTER consequence than she would of ever thought!
A must read! 4.5☆

SHE KNOWS WHAT'S BEST FOR HER SON, AND IT'S NOT YOU…

Eve has an idiosyncratic relationship with the truth, is a borderline psychopath and has a rather colourful past. But her heart is in the right place. Having recently met Gideon everything seems, at last, to be working out rather well for her. Then he introduces her to his mother.

There are literally no lengths to which Marjorie will not go to get Eve out of her son's life.

In-Laws and Outlaws | Kate Fulford

Kate has had a varied career that has encompassed working in sales and marketing in the software industry, for brand and marketing agencies, several years as a freelance copywriter, and some time as a foster carer.

She has a distinctive authorial voice that refuses to take anything too seriously, not because she doesn't think life is a serious matter but because she believes that it is almost always better when leavened with humour.

tammysue Thanks for the add! Downloaded! 😁 1y
