WEEKEND SUMMARY FOR FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
I was at a conference over the weekend and in case you missed the links to my website posts, I put them here for both websites.

Ten Things to Avoid on a Magical Holiday is full of those useful hints and tips that could save you a lot of misery and possibly your life too.

WEEKEND SUMMARY FOR THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
http://allisonsymes-thisworldandothers.weebly.com/blog—creating-worlds/writing-books-ive-found-useful Here I share my favourite how-to-write books. Some are funny, others are serious, all of them are well worth reading. I’ve learned lots from each of them.
This post probably is my contender for the longest title! However, I share a few things you can expect should a good supernatural being enter your world. Trouble to start with… these visitations are not always popular especially with those in power.
