Today WordPress kindly informed me that this is the 8th anniversary of my blog, Homo Sapien Leilanderthalensis… literary evolution. In the almost decade-long adventure of literary blogging and promotion, much has happened. My blog began its existence as a place of self-promotion before evolving into a resource platform featuring writing competitions and providing fellow Indie authors an opportunity to have their work reviewed. Today, since my life is now packed with running Bindweed Magazine alongside dayjob and parenting responsibilities, and so my blog has reverted back to a promotional platform mainly for my writer-poet hubby, Joseph Robert and myself.

This month has also seen World Book Day 2019 on 7 May and World Poetry Day on 21 March. Since I didn’t get round to posting on either day, I have saved up my promotional blogging energy for a combination of both: coming tomorrow is Joseph Robert’s forthcoming poetry collection to coincide with the end of Article 50 here in the UK. More soon…watch this space!

About Leilanie Stewart

Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry. In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books. CONNECT WITH ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
