Advice for writers.

Apply the seat of your pants to a chair, your fingers to the keyboard and write. When you've finished, polish what you've written. When it's as good as you can possibly make it, format it correctly and submit it. Then apply the seat of your pants to your chair again... etc. Rinse and repeat. There is no other way. If you don't write it and send it out, you'll never get published.




"Intrigue-heavy, multi-viewpoint plotting with human stories featuring characters you care about – a rare feat in this genre." - Jaine Fenn (Tales from the Garrett)


"WINTERWOOD, the first book in Jacey Bedford's new series, Rowankind, combines historical fiction, magic, shapeshifters, a strong female lead and top it all off with pirates. The result was thoroughly satisfying." - Fresh Fiction


"Bedford adeptly weaves together romance, action, and fantastical elements... Conflict both nautical and emotional keeps things exciting." Publishers Weekly (Winterwood)
