All writers and readers want for Christmas...

It's that time of year again, in which I flog my wares and clear out my book shelves of all the books I wrote so there's space for much better literary achievements... I jest, of course because my books are the peak of literary achievement... kinda.

Gifts for readers and writers!

Anyway, as well as books, this year I also have something for writers... my WriteNOW Cards would make the perfect gift for a writer friend or someone in your family who has always wanted to write but for whatever reason, is yet to pick up a pen or give themselves carpal tunnel from too much computing.

As you can see below each card has an affirmation statement that when read aloud encourages positive thinking, a better focus on the work, more enjoyment and less fear as you write. They come in a beautiful rainbow of colours that are chosen to match the affirmation on the card (because different colours really do make us feel different things) and you can get a full collection of 50 cards for $25 (with FREE worldwide shipping) or a smaller collection of 10 cards (again with FREE shipping!).

You can find out more information about what WriteNOW Cards are here and you can order your pack there too by emailing hello@fmthompson.com. (Be sure to also follow WriteNOW Cards on Instagram, Twitter and now Facebook as well for free daily writing inspiration and positive gooeyness!)

IMPORTANT - Last dates for Xmas and New Year orders are 10th December (for worldwide shipping) and 12th December (for shipping in Europe).

PLUS!!! Anyone who orders the mini packs before 12th December will receive a Xmas card from me plus some bonus stickers!

Who would like to receive one of my books?

I want to highlight the kind of people who would enjoy reading the books available as signed copies. This may help you pick the right book for your loved one, or for yourself because I'm a big believer in buying gifts for yourself, because let's face it no-one can do that better than you!

Shy Feet: Short Stories Inspired by Travel

As the title suggests this is the book for anyone obsessed with travel or anyone about to embark on a journey to foreign climes be it backpacking or a new adventure in a new country. The stories are very short, a little sweet but come with plenty of twists and turns - as do most journeys! These stories would also suit armchair travellers and those who like gentle, moving love stories and lots of people watching! (Read the blurb or get the ebook version here!)

London Eyes: Short Stories

This collection of fiction set in and inspired by London is of course essential reading for someone who lives in and loves London. However, you don't have to know the city well to relate to these stories of cultures clashing, people learning from each other, and yes, a few unlikely love stories too. I think this is a more "mature" collection than Shy Feet as it tackles some more thorny issues such as racism, addiction, sex, and even the afterlife! (Read the blurb and get the ebook version here.)

Nine Women: Short Stories

These stories are about women - of all ages and backgrounds - but the book is not exclusively a read for just women. In fact, I think men would learn a lot from reading these stories about the challenges women face and how they approach them. This is arguably the book I'm most proud of as the stories are all very different, from a coming of age story about young sisters, to a little bit of historical fiction based on a true story. All that said, of course, yes, this is a book for all women of all ages and backgrounds because it's very possible they may just see themselves in one of the stories... (Read the blurb and get the ebook version here.)
