How I Handle Hate-mail & Criticism As A Writer


Criticism. As writers, sooner or later we’re likely to encounter it. How we deal with it – either internally or externally – depends greatly on our personality, and also I suppose, on what sort of place we’re in at any particular moment.

Here are some of my thoughts on the subject. More

The Importance Of Making Back-ups


Back in the old days – that’s right, before computers – writers used to have a choice between writing our manuscripts out manually – with an actual pen, or typing them on an archaic device called a typewriter!

I still remember the cramps I got in my fingers from writing stories with a pen on actual paper – called ‘writer’s cramp’ – and the sore bruised feeling in my finger tips from clamping on that pen so hard while I feverishly wrote each word – being mentally already two sentences ahead of where my hand was on the page! Whew! Those were the days, eh?

Since then however, computers have made life so much easier for us writers, haven’t they? I mean, aside from being faster to ‘write’, it’s also so much quicker and easier to edit and format them now too! …Er – not that creating stories on computers is perfect or entirely without risks – in fact computers present a whole cluster of nasty, knotty problems for writers in the “Digital Age”!

Join the adventure: “Blachart”!


Buy now: eBook Paperback Audiobook (coming soon)

Life hardly ever turns out the way we expect it to, and for Mykl d’Angelo, skipper and owner of the loderunner Pegasus, it had just taken a bad turn for terrible.

Due a minor misunderstanding, his crew had stolen the ship’s only shuttle, leaving him and two others behind to crew the ailing ship on their own. As if that weren’t bad enough, just a few hours later the rickety old ship’s stardrive exploded in the middle of the middle of nowhere, killing Mykl’s two remaining crewmen.

Marooned alone in deep space, Mykl d’Angelo counted his blessings, offered prayers to any gods who specialized in miracles, and prepared to await (A) seemingly unlikely rescue, or (B) a lingering death…

Rescue takes place, but at a price – as the Antares, a cruiser dispatched to investigate the mysterious silence of a remote starbase crosses paths with a legendary and fearsome Corsair – a man whose name sent shivers down the spines of lesser mortals. Blachart… Blachart the Bloody.

“At times tense, at other times funny, Christina manages to maintain a healthy balance between humour and excitement – producing a first novel that is as easy to read as it is a joy to experience. Truly this is one of the very best sci-fi novels that I have read all year!” – Mark Woods, author of “Time of Tides” and “Fear of the Dark”.

Blachart” is the first title in the Galaxii Series by Christina Engela.

Coming Soon! “Blachart” – the Audiobook!
