The only problem with my job is the amount of contact with exciting books that I have. These were a donated last week and I just had to have them.
A Complete Guide to Fairies and Magical Beings – Cassandra Eason
This is such a good book. It has chapters on old legends and the different types of fairies. I think it’s going to be really good for finding out about different beings to use in my writing.
Poetry By Moonlight
An anthology of poetry based on moonlight and night time. After a little flick through this looks like it has some beautiful poetry in it. It also fits with one of my reading goals for 2013!
Watercolour Fairies – David Riche and Anna Franklin
This is a step to step guide on how to paint fairies. I’m not artistic in the slightest but some of the pictures are truly inspiring.
Fantasy Encyclopedia – Judy Allen
This has some of the folklore in that I’m looking at for my writing. But as a keen reader of fantasy I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of this one as well. Vampires and dragons anyone?
Comprehensive Writing Course
This is a proper mail order writing course with lots of booklets in on different topics in writing. It covers everything from poetry to children’s writing. I was very excited about it!
So that’s my little haul. I couldn’t really afford it but I think some of it will be very valuable to my writing en devours!
