am delighted to announce the release of my new writer’s guide “HOW TO
BE THE BEST WRITER EVER!” - An informal guide and source of inspiration
for new and not so new writers worldwide. This is available on Amazon as
an e-book and in paperback.
Over a decade ago, one of my sons said to me: “Mum, you should share
your writing experience with others. Give me some content and I’ll put a
website up for you.”
I had been writing since the age of nine and trained as a newspaper
reporter in my teens. My short stories have been published in “The Lady”
magazine, London, England, and in “The Broadkill Review”, Delaware; my
poetry has appeared in “Evergreen” magazine, U.K., and articles
published in British and Bahamian publications. And I am also the author
of several other books available at Amazon and other major online book
I threw some ideas together and sent them to my son. He uploaded them in
sections on a website, and the seeds of a writer’s guide were planted. I
had a button on the site for visitors to leave their email addresses if
they wanted to be notified when the website content would be available
My blog fayknowles.blogspot.com
eventually replaced the writer’s website. However, I still had a
subscribers' list of active or aspiring writers from the website who had
been eagerly waiting for me to publish the promised writer’s guide.
Now, many years later, I delved back in my mind to all the writing
experience and training that I’ve had over the years and wrote about it.
I used the original information from the website as a foundation.
I wanted to help those who longed to write books, articles, short
stories, poems or screenplays; and others whose writing career was going
nowhere. My promise has been fulfilled with the publication of “HOW TO
BE THE BEST WRITER EVER!" – It has come a long way since I first put a
few tips online about writing!
Always wanted to write a book? Or are you a writer whose career is going nowhere?This
uplifting writer’s guide outlines the craft and how to become the best
writer ever in fifteen straightforward and easy to understand chapters
that enlighten and inform; inspire and encourage; educate and advise.

writing, I’d like to share some more of my friend Tanya R. Taylor’s
literary news. A bestselling author, Tanya writes in various genres
including Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, Thrillers, Science-fiction,
Mystery and Suspense.
She says: I used to love watching Paranormal Witness on the SYFY channel
on Wednesday nights. Couldn't get enough of it as these were real-life
accounts of paranormal/supernatural events that people from all walks of
life allegedly experienced. It’s obvious that many people have a
curiosity to what is unseen, whether we believe something more is really
there or not. I have my reasons for gravitating toward this area with
my own writing, although I write crime fiction, thrillers and have even
penned a contemporary romance as well.
Tanya explains: “The word ‘paranormal’ is defined by dictionary.cambridge.orgas:
‘All the things that are impossible to explain by known natural forces
or by science.’ I love writing in this genre. It's exciting to write and
I'm sure, to read - at least for fans of the genre.” Yes! Tanya’s books
are really exciting to read!
Check out Tanya R. Taylor’s bestseller “10 Minutes before Sleeping”,
which I highly recommend. It’s the powerful story of a young woman named
Eva left on the doorstep of a neighbour as a child by her very own
mother. She is abused, neglected, rejected and without a legal footing
in the only place she knows as “home”. All the odds appear to be stacked
against her and those looking from the outside in seriously wonder how
one human being could be expected to battle such atrocities without
making a fateful decision to end it all far quicker than it ever began.
Tanya R. Taylor’s Four Book E-book Collection in her Cornelius
Bestelling series is still available at a DISCOUNTED PRICE! The
Cornelius Saga Series Box Set (Books 1 – 4): Exciting Ghost Stories
& Haunted House Collection. A great package deal! Escape to the exciting world of
the Cullen family where there are very few “ordinary” days. Adventures,
mysteries, ghosts, witches, artefacts and missing corpses are familiar
territory! Watch Mira evolve from a curious teenager to a respected
doctor, and her daughter Rosie, from an endearing six-year-old to a
mature teenager. They share an amazing gift some people may love to have
and others quietly thank their lucky stars that they don’t. Once you meet the Cullens, they
become dear to your heart and you’ll want to go on every adventure they
will ever have. A sure classic.
AND my short story FUNNELS is still FREE on Amazon! This is a poignant short story
about a young woman who longs to escape her dreary, hard working
existence on a Caribbean island. With a baby daughter and irresponsible
casino dealer husband, she is tied down to eking a living working tables
in a local restaurant. When an opportunity suddenly presents itself,
she is torn between her family and the prospect of elevating herself.
