The Working Title Blog is 5 Today!

Five years ago two slightly deranged women with a mutual love of books – both reading them and writing them – got together to create a blog that offered a daily short read. Maybe something thoughtful, something funny or something action-filled. We aimed to promote the work of others too and entertain any who had a moment to drop by and read.

For five years we have provided two pieces on the blog every day – one very short maybe a limerick or a drabble and the other a longer read – an extract or flash fiction or humorous piece. We were young, enthusiastic and full of grand dreams!

Two out of three of those remain (you can decide which two for yourself), and we’re hoping the blog will still be here in five years’ time so we can celebrate a 10th birthday. But we’ve decided to scale back to just one piece a day ongoing so we can put more time and attention into our writing projects. These pieces will include the same sort of things as before and maybe some different stuff – non-fiction, opinions and comments. We are very open to suggestions if anyone has something they would like to see here. Also, we plan to feature work from other authors so if you have something you’d like to contribute please feel to send it our way.

Every birthday so far we have had a competition. This year we’re doing something a bit different. We’re asking you to tell us in the comments here (or you can email or send carrier pigeons) what post or series of posts on the blog you have most enjoyed over the years. Your prize will be that we will revisit that and repost it, especially for you!

Oh – and what is a birthday without gifts?

You can pick up The First Dai and Julia Omnibus free for five days as a thank you from us to you for following the blog. And we have published our supernatural horror Maybe which is available on preorder right now for release tomorrow.

Thanks for your attention for the last five years and here’s to the next!

  1. I loved the Night librarian by Jane Jago, so I ended up buying it. But the poetry of EM Swift-Hook is always a beautiful and thoughtful read. Happy anniversary!
