A site for readers and writers

Welcome to Helen Carey’s blog

Hello, welcome to my blog,

I am a published author (see my book page above), an avid reader, and I occasionally teach creative writing at university level. In the past I have also worked as a reader for a couple of publishers and a literary agent.

If you would like to subscribe to this blog, just click the ‘Sign up by email’ or ‘RSS’ box on the right, I only post once or twice a month so you won’t be inundated and you can unsubscribe at any time.

I hope you are all staying safe and coping with the lock down. Please feel free to get in touch if I can answer any writing or reading questions.

With all best wishes, Stay safe.

  1. I remember I last used ‘erudite’ in 1976. I will try not to repeat the mistake, but you have reminded me of ‘clout’, so from this moment I will be using it ad nauseam.

  2. I’m so jealous of you and your dogs – Cool pic!

  3. Hey Helen – thanks for the great blog! I nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award!


  4. Hi Helen!
    I agree with you about reader feedback. I read extracts from my novel A Discerning Woman’s Guide To Manhunting to members of the local WI two weeks ago and their hilarious response was genuine, generous and heart-warming. I value posted, written reviews too but don’t under-estimate the effect of public performances of your work. With a bit of luck, you might sell a few copies too!

  5. Nice to be apart of the group Helen, will follow…..

  6. Hi Wendy, yes, I remember you well. Yes, I was teaching a writing course on Kythira. What a lovely island. Thanks for your comments, much appreciated. I hope your writing is going well too?

  7. Came across your blog and find it full of great sense, practical insight and some kind of vision of writers and the writing process. I thib=nk we met once on the island of Kithera, I may be wrong of course. w

  8. Get the Max factor – this book left me despairing that I will ever make it as a romantic hero – but with plenty of top tips as to how to try and be one!! (Might need to save up for cosmetic surgery and re-study physics but that aside…) I really enjoyed this, though I’m still smarting at those steel grey eyes!!
