A throbbing booklover’s heart. That’s what Shakespeare and Company manages to achieve. This independent bookshop in the centre of Paris is a must see for readers around the world. I’m guiding you through this wonderful piece of magical wonder!
As an aspiring writer, you will most likely hear it often: give your finished story to alpha and beta readers. It took me some googling and many episodes of Writing Excuses before I really grasped what alphas and betas are about. Simply put, alpha and beta readers are test readers.

For a while now I’ve been working on a fantasy story: The Fourth Ruling. I thought I’d write a little update on my writing process so far and give some insight into what it actually is I’m writing.
