This is great news Debbie 👏 

I too had a positive 121. It really does give you a boost doesn't it?

Well done and good luck with it all.

Hi Debbie,

Thanks for your input. I hadn't even thought about taking something from the actual book!! What am I like!

There is plenty in it to make a reader shudder, so I will definitely do that.

Good luck with yours.

Thanks again


Welcome, Geoff.

This is my first attempt at novel writing and didn't realise how little I knew about the whole process until I joined Jericho. Hanging around in the community and scrolling through the posts has been a great learning curve and a lot of fun too.



My son lives in Utrecht. Beautiful place. He also teaches English amongst other things. He also reads everything I write which is very handy for me.

Let me know how the ultimate novel writing course goes please as I have thought about doing that. 

I have a draft of my first novel completed and am busy doing loads of rounds of editing.

Cheers Sue 

Congratulations Lynn. This us brilliant news 👏 

Welcome Corry.

I'm working on my first thriller. Yes quite the challenge. I'm doing my 100th edit!


I grew up in London and was in my 20s in the 1980s and was constantly harassed, and then abused if I didn't respond. It really was frightening at times as Laurie's story says.

What I find really sad is that my 22 year old daughter suffers the exact same crap!

Nothing has changed 

Hi Jane,

I write in the third person. I always use first names for protagonist's and last name for antagonist's. I think using a first name for a baddie makes them too nice.
