by Karen J Mossman I'm not a fan of horror or paranormal. I get spooked easily and have a very active imagination. As a teenager I would be plagued by nightmares for weeks. As I grew up I knew to stay away from anything like that. Recently, I was watching Gogglebox, a TV programme that… Continue reading Creepy Things

By Karen J Mossman A couple of years ago I supported a campaign called Our Books Are Not Free! Something I truly believed in.

Ever wondered what Electric Eclectic books are? Seen the name around? Well this is an article direct from the horse’s mouth, as they say.
I write for them. I have those stories in my drawer.
Being a busy author/blogger amongst many other things, I often want to read a shorter book, and discovered new authors. I’ve then gone on toread their novels.

The best way for me to answer that question is to give a little history of Electric Eclectic.

by Karen J Mossman I was at Pedro’s house and we were making out on the sofa. My head was back, my neck stretched in pleasure, my eyes flicked open and there was his mother looking through the window. I don’t think any of us recovered from that as I made a quick exit. Now… Continue reading A Good Son
I'm sure you do, and we all take it for granted everyone knows what and who an Indie author is. Recently, I gave a talk to a group of ladies and asked them the same question, already knowing what their answer would be. Imagine my surprise when the majority of people said no. It then… Continue reading Do you know what an Indie author is?
