beren_writes: Covers of my novels (My Books)
This is me hopefully managing to put a Welcome message at the top of my Dreamwidth journal *crosses fingers*.

To all those new to my LJ, my name is Tasha (aka Beren for fanfic purposes). I am a full time author and run a small publishing company (Wittegen Press) with my sister [personal profile] thwax. On this journal you will find me talking about my books, my fanfic, my favourite movies, my favourite bands, recipes and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Check out my user info or the links down the side for my fanfic listings and below are all my books.

I welcome all friends, but please don't be offended if I don't friend you back if you have nothing on your LJ or your don't post much or you're under 16. If you are new to LJ, so your LJ is empty, drop me a comment here so I know you're not a troll/spam bot. 98% of all my posts are public, so it makes no difference.

For those not in the know, the AtoZChallenge happens every April and this year is it's 10th anniversary. Bloggers from all over the world post everyday using the letter of the alphabet for that day as a prompt (e.g. A on the 1st, B on the 2nd etc), except for Sundays - hence 26 days. Some of us also have a theme.

This year my theme is ghosts and I am writing flashfic ghost stories for every day, inspired by local haunting in Kent, where I live. Today's location and haunting is the parish of EastChurchThere is a local story that says a couple once came across a woman in the road as they were driving, only to have her disappear when they stopped to see if she needed help. This one's on the amusing side.

Story description:

The last thing Paul expected to find in a lane on Sheppey was a woman standing in the middle of the road like an idiot. He's not pleased when his girlfriend expects them to help.

Lined background  with quotes from books over it. Title of "Writerly Wednesdays, The Joys of Patreon #2" over the top.

This is the second repost from my Tasha's Thinkings blog, the original went out today.

The Patreon About Section

The Joys of Patreon #2

So I spent all of Monday afternoon on this. Wow, it is hard.
 


The about section is where you sell yourself, and we all know how good at doing that we Brits are.

The first stop is Pateron's "How to Sell Your Page" in the learn more col on the edit page - which is actually titled "How to Sell Your Page in Your About Section" when you actually get there, which makes a lot more sense.Continue Reading )

Anyone have any tips for the about section? How would you go about selling your skills?

beren_writes: Loki smiling with the words "Sweet and innocent ... honestly" (Avengers - Loki sweet and innocent)
Beige background with Writerly Wednesdays at the top and "The Joys of Patreon" over the top as a title.


The Joys of Patreon

Welcome to a new year on Tasha's Thinkings - I hope you're having a good one so far. (This is a repost from my other blog Tasha's Thinkings, but I thought people might be interested over here, and if you haven't guessed this was originally posted last week)

I have all sorts of exciting plans for this year, one of which is setting up my very own Patreon.

For those who don't know what this is, Patreon is a site where artists of all kinds, from authors to illustrators to bloggers, can set up a page to offer exclusive content to and create a community of patrons. Some people use it and ask patrons to pay on a per creation basis, others ask patrons to sign up for a period of regular donations, anything from $1 up.

It's an old traditional system brought into the 21st century for the internet age.


Continue Reading )Watch this space for updates as I plan everything out!
 

Do any of you already use Patreon? Any advice for a newbie like me? Many thanks.

Warnings: This story is canon compliant until the end of Order of the Phoenix and then goes AU. None of the HBP or Deathly Hallows plot will be used, or the Horcruxes for that matter since this story was planned before we knew the details about those things, and hence has it's own fanon.

Summary: The threat of open war in on the horizon. The Order and the Ministry are of one accord and both know that where Harry Potter is, Voldemort will eventually be. Preparations are being made and this time the side of the light will not be caught unawares.
Summer classes, sabotage, revelations about Draco's father, teaching and the final showdown with Voldemort all await Harry and Draco in this exciting sequel to Gold Tinted Spectacles (LJ | AO3 | Wattpad).
Author's Notes: This is the second story in the Hecatemae universe. It starts up just after the end of the first instalment and I advice reading that one first so you understand the premise. Thanks go to my sister Sophie for the beta reading.
It has taken me 12 years to finally get around to finishing this, I very much hope everyone enjoys it.
