A pretty quiet week at Emma Towers - mostly spent sending off work to competitions and researching freelance work - don't forget, if you want me to write for your blog/magazine/anthology/etc, send me an email!
Now, on to the blog; I thought I would talk a little bit about the books that have had the most influence on me in my four years of writing professionally. Stephen King once said; “if you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot, and write a lot.” So, with that in mind, here are the top five books that have inspired me as a writer. And a lot of them are horror novels - perfect for these chilly nights in! Amazon links are included, if any of these books pique your interest.
What are your influences? Let me know in the comments!
