The Internet is good for many things, but it should never be considered an adequate substitute for research, for reading and for learning from – where possible – original sources. It is a mass, if not a mess, of thoughts, learning, quotation and misquotation, false paths and short-cuts used by students all over the world […]

A New Masonic Title Due

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 14, 2014 in Publishing |

It’s a wonderful feeling, as a publisher, when a new manuscript comes in and is ready for publication, almost – I imagine – as good as the feeling when your own book hits the stands and you can hold it in your hands and show it off to all your friends. Today we completed the […]

Publishing: Another Step Forwards

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 12, 2014 in Publishing |

Today is another good day, as far as my small publishing business is concerned. For many, perhaps, not a massive day, not one to write about in future history books, but a good step in the right direction nonetheless. Yesterday I completed the re-writing of my publishing website from the very basics of web design […]

So, You’ve Written Your Book…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 8, 2014 in Publishing |

Yesterday I wrote about how I set myself targets and then attempt to meet them, how my targets are perhaps less than would be possible to attain and the reasons why I set a lower target. Having finished writing that post, my thoughts turned to other areas where we set targets, where we have something […]

Milestones: Rebuilding An Internet Presence

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 7, 2014 in Publishing |

Sometimes when you set yourself a target you are almost certainly condemning yourself to failure. We tend to over-estimate our proficiency, our abilities, even our willingness to do certain things, no matter how attractive or profitable they may be, and find ourselves caught in a quagmire of inability, lack of time, lack of confidence. Once […]

Don’t Bite The Hand That Reviews

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 19, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I had an interesting experience yesterday on Google Plus, one which surprised me to a certain extent simply because, well, you don’t expect such things there. On Facebook and Twitter perhaps, but not on Google Plus. I was insulted by someone, and by insulted I mean in a callous and bitter manner with a few […]

Review: Straight White Male

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 18, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

The life of a bestselling author is an easy one: rest on your laurels cashing in on the success of your last work and, occasionally, write something new. The real life of a bestselling author is something completely different: not so much resting as searching for a new work which will hold that level of […]

Finding Flash Inspiration

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 7, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Where do you get your inspiration from when writing? A fairly innocuous question, but one which every single writer is going to be faced with at some time, or which they are going to ask themselves. Where do all these ideas come from? Looking for ideas for short stories, I came across a few things […]

Moving From Small To Big

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 4, 2014 in Publishing |

For those of you who have been keeping up with the (sparse) news on my publishing endeavors, here is a small update on plans and actions because the thing about having a company is that you need to stay on top of things, you need to be capable of evolving. Stagnation is the death of […]

Review: Essay Oder Stirb

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 2, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

It is amazing how few people sit down and think. I mean really think, consider the big and the small things in life and not just what is happening to them, why, and why life is so unfair, but moving events and powers of our modern world. People in general no longer seem to look […]
