Hi everyone, and welcome to my first blog post! I’m Alina, writer of twisty psychological thrillers and dark fantasies. My latest manuscript is in the vein of CARAVAL meets THE CRUEL PRINCE. I’ve created this blog to share my writing journey and hopefully connect with more fellow writers and readers.
Writing is sometimes considered a solitary pathway, but it doesn’t have to be. As I’ve seen from the amazing writing community on Twitter, there are so many fun ways to take an interest in each other’s lives and projects. If you have anything that you’re currently working on, or any topics that you would like to see discussed in this blog, please let me know in the comments section below. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and chatting about books!
At this stage, I’m hoping to update my blog semi-regularly. I will be sharing posts related to writing and editing, advice for aspiring authors and whatever else comes to mind 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
