Clean or Steam? Why I absolutely adore writing sweet, slow-burn romance that Jane Austen would love!

In case you didn’t know, there are various heat levels when it comes to romance. There’s sweet, clean romance that doesn’t have sex or swearing (mine has a bit of swearing but that’s a blog post for another day!) and the heat levels increase all the way up to very naughty, erotic romance. Each level is brilliant in its own way and every authors has reasons for choosing to write they level they do...

The 3 reasons everyone needs to read uplifting romance novels after the strangest year of our lives!

I recently read a blog post where the writer totally slammed romcoms as having a negative effect on society, and both men and women! To be honest, my first reaction was shock that any sane human being could feel this way about romcoms. Which, I’ll be honest, are the only way I got through 2020 (that and copious amounts of wine!). So I thought I’d write a post in defence of my favourite genre...

You can do it! How to spend this year writing that novel you’ve always wanted

I know you’re thinking that writing a novel is extremely intimidating, and at times it really can be. I’ve written seven of them now and every time I sit and stare at that blank page, even if I’ve plotted the whole thing out and I know what I need to do, it doesn’t stop my stomach squirming! But you have the power to ignore that wriggly worm in your tummy and fulfill that ambition. All you have...

Katie Ginger

The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!

I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
