A Gift Guide for Book *& Writing Geeks

Welcome to the sixth and final gift guide in the Ultimate Gift Guide series for geeks! It has been a lot of work putting these together and the response has been amazing, so thank you to everyone who has commented and reached out.

My Monthly Goals for September

September? Where did that come from? This year has just blown by and soon I’ll need to start thinking about things I want to achieve before the year ends, as well as planning blog posts for Christmas and reviewing the end of the year! As I said in my August goals, I didn’t want to overdo it because I was just getting back into the swing of things and only had a few weeks left of the month to go.
