Hopefully it will be of interest to you, if you are a writer too, or thinking of starting writing. Feel free to leave comments on what you thought about it.

In other news this week, I have set up an Instagram account for MyriadLifeBooks so you can see the latest notebooks, journals and logbooks arriving in my Amazon store. If you go to my profile and click on the Linktree link it will take you directly to my sales pages so if you see a book you like on Instagram you are only a couple of clicks away from being able to buy it.

Also, some lucky new subscribers here, won my Daily Planner 2022 giveaway for January. Here is a snap of me posting off the planners to them. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a notebook in February, hit the subscribe button below the picture and sign up.
