Author Update (4th May 2014)

Read Wave:

Okay so since I joined the cool gang that is I have had two articles trend, and the other day I was invited to become an Editor for the theme: Life Lessons.

If you would like to read my articles, go to my profile:


I have submitted my novella, The Snow Killer, to be available on Kobo, meaning all you  W H Smiths e-readers out there can read my debut boo too! However, they appear to be having some issues, so it’s going to take a few more days until it has uploaded.

Fellow Authors:

As you may or may not know, I recently started a segment on my main blog called “Interview with an Author”. It seems to have taken off, as I am currently interviewing about five or six people, and have several more in mind. (If you are interested in being interviewed, or know someone who might be, please contact me at:

I am also reading and reviewing a few books – no spoilers I’m afraid, you’ll just have to wait and see what I think!


I have FINALLY figured out how to auto DM people on Twitter (thanks to Elizabeth!), as I hate feeling that I’ve forgotten to say hello to my new followers.

I had 30 new followers this week, so thank you to everyone that followed me! If you would like to follow me on Twitter, I’m @melissaholden94

So, I think all things considered – it’s been a pretty productive writing week. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend – I am off to work where I will no doubt spend hours staring at suitcases.


I’m Trending on Read Wave!

I couldn’t believe it – I woke up and I had all these emails (as per usual) and then ReadWave emailed saying I was Trending!

Anyway! Check out the article here, or to see my previous post about click here. 


Have a Happy Friday!



I Have Joined ReadWave

A little update into my writing life:

After the failure that was my attempt (SIDE NOTE: That is why I started this blog!) I have decided to delve into social media writing once again, and have joined Read Wave. 



ResdWave is very sleek and user-friendly, which is great news for writers everywhere! It is hard to find a good platform for your work, and when you are a self-published writer, places like ReadWave are perfect for displaying your writing.

My first article was…

Why Facebook Are No Longer the Cool Kids of Social Media

My second was…

Why Being A Writer In The 21st Century Is Hard

Please keep an eye on my Twitter for updates about my ReadWave page, as I have a lot to say and share with the world, and would love it if you continue to follow me on my journey that is The Writing World.
