I made a video last year for +Cornerstones Education who is now my actual employer. It's the theory of evolution and natural selection for kids, basically. Tricky to explain!

In episode 151 of the Write for Your Life podcast, me and Donna talk about World Book Day (in the UK and Ireland), where are all the grandparents in fiction, falling e-reader sales, and a controversial blog post by an ex MFA tutor who may or may not be talking nonsense.

Hey! We're back from holiday and we're here talking about the email Amazon sent to its KDP authors, some tips on how to approach the revision process, and a little about the death of the great Robin Williams.
