The Fiction Cafe Book Club

The Fiction Cafe – Book Club In just a year a lot has happened. I may not have achieved the target blog followers I aimed for. I may not have been as active as I wanted to be on my blog.

In just 8 months we have a group with just under 4’000 members!… Read More

How did I get sucked in? … I was working in a lonely job, you make a friend and they become a saviour to your… Read More

The Fiction Cafe Book Club

The Fiction Café Facebook Group I started writing my novel after my holiday to Cornwall in the summer of 2016. I read during some of the ‘research’ into becoming a writer that to be a good writer you need to read more in the genre you intend to write in. I did what any other writer with no time does and created a Facebook group for other coffee lovers and bookworms! It is a very new, relaxed group where we share our love for coffee and books! (…and other hot beverages!) We will be… Read More
