Here’s a ‘backstage pass’ into the editing of “Familiar”

Who doesn’t love a backstage pass? It’s always cool seeing a set or the characters of a TV show or movie from a different angle. It’s no different for authors writing a story.

You wonder (well, I do anyway), what’s their process? How do they set themselves up to write for the day? What times of the day do they write? What do they drink and eat whilst writing? Tea or coffee? Beer or wine?

In the UK right now it’s HOT. No amount of sun is worth missing, but then again there’s no time for an off day when it comes to editing my latest novel, “Familiar“.

So, here’s a backstage pass for you into my editing day…

T. J. Blake drink writing - editing Familiar

So there you have it!

I will say, I don’t usually drink when I’m writing or editing my novels. But you’ve got to treat yourself once in a while.

Paranormal thriller ‘Familiar’, coming soon!

For the living, it’s closure. 
For the departed, it’s the last chance to expose the truth.

Familiar T. J. Blake

For as long as she can remember, Arabella has communicated with those who exist only in memory.

Being the centre of attention growing up was uncomfortable, and now, as a renowned psychic medium, it is becoming more of a struggle. Arabella’s ability and reputation always made it impossible to hold onto lasting relationships, but with those who no longer walk this earth, that’s not the case.

Arabella returns to where it all began fifteen-years before – on the very same stage. After an evening reconnecting loved ones and exposing untold stories, Arabella can’t help but wonder about the one unclaimed ‘friend’, and their cryptic message.

In an unexpected turn of events, Arabella finds herself the subject of morning headlines and at the centre of Detective Barnes’ investigation.

Can Arabella use her ability to prove her innocence and uncover the truth about the past?

Available to pre-order on Amazon

  1. How on earth can you see the screen out there?
    I can never read what I’m supposed to be editing, whether I’m facing the sun or have my back to it.
    I can never find the cursor, even if I make it enormous and give it a trail.
    It’s my biggest problem when the sun’s out – I never get any writing done.

    1. I will admit it’s harder to see the screen, but I can still read it. Maybe it’s because I’m using a Macbook rather than a Dell or whatever you’re using. Could try turning up your screen brightness? It might be help 🙂
