The nights are drawing in, the kids are back at school and the sun's gone into hibernation... which means it's the ideal time to get your teeth stuck into a new writing project, or wrestle an old one into submission.

We hear from a lot of readers that finding time is one of your biggest issues in getting on with your writing, but remember to break it down into small chunks to make the whole thing seem more manageable, and that a stolen half hour here and there is often more efficient than trying to block out whole days at a time. Even if you only manage 300 words a day, you could have a novel written and redrafted by this time next year. And doesn't that sound rewarding?

Whatever you're writing and however it's going, stay in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter, our Talkback forum or by email. We do love to hear how you're getting on. Good luck!

Memoirs Publishing

Mereo Books, part of Memoirs Publishing is an independent self-publishing house which combines the flexibility and author control offered by self-publishing with the specialist editing and design skills and the marketing, sales and distribution services normally offered only by traditional publishers. This enables us to produce books which can stand alongside anything on retailers’ shelves and to gain trade acceptance for many of our titles.

In contrast to most self-publishing houses, we take a personal interest in every book and do our best to encourage promising authors by keeping prices reasonable. Every book Mereo produces is professionally edited and designed by a book design expert – in fact we will not publish any book which does not meet the appropriate standard. Mereo is even becoming the publisher of choice for authors who have previously had trade publishing deals, because of the greater control and ownership we offer and the opportunity to earn much higher royalty rates.

Memoirs Publishing, 1A The Wool Market, Dyer Street, Cirencester Gloucestershire GL7 2PR
