‘Writers Block’ is a blog for people who love books and reading, but also contains occasional silliness and poetry (and it can be hard to tell the difference sometimes) that I can’t resist posting into the darkness to see if it strikes a spark with anyone.

Just to introduce myself: Kasia James, at your service. I am a writer who has come to suspect that it is my mission to produce a book in every conceivable genre, fulfilling some sort of mad ‘Renaissance woman’ quest.

I am currently working on a collection of speculative fiction short stories, and quite a lot of poetry. Much of the poetry seems to emerge during long train journeys.

My previous published works include ‘The Artemis Effect’, a science fiction novel, which you find out more about in the Reviews section, and

‘The Milk of Female Kindness – an Anthology of Honest Motherhood’, with poetry, fiction, essays and artwork by a collection of fabulously talented women from around the world.

    • Thank you Sheila! That’s very kind indeed. πŸ™‚
      I think I’ll have to post something really worth reading before I tackle this one, but I have something planned I’ve been meaning to do for ages.
      Thank you again! Big smiles at this end.

    • It’s Indie published. I did look briefly at the option of having it traditionally published, but given the difficulty for a new author to break into an established firm, and the extra degree of control you have as an indie in terms of content, cover design and pricing, it seemed a better way to go!
      Glad you like the sound of it! πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Katkasia! I’ve just found your blog! For some reason I didn’t think you had one…not sure what I was doing wrong…but am glad I tried again…now I know!

    I just bought your book! Can’t wait to read it!

    Thanks for staying in touch!

    • Oh wonderful! Thank you so much, and I really hope you enjoy it. Just finished the process of uploading everything so I can have hardcopies, so am awaiting the proofs with baited breath.
      Would love to know what you think of it! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! I’m honoured that you should think of me. I promise that I will do this one, just as soon as I can think of seven even vaguely interesting things about me…:)

  2. Hi Kat,

    Nice blog, how would you like to see a blog set up to promote New (to me) Authors and their books?

    Call over and have a look at mine and if you like it enough, I’d be delighted if you became a follower πŸ™‚

      • No, sci-fi is still very much my bag. Time is just at a huge premium! How are things going with the Anthology? Do you still need contributors, or is it filling out nicely?

      • Oh yeah, Mrs. Artemis Effect! Must have forgotten about your qualifications πŸ™‚ Things are going well, but there are still spots that need filling. And they require people who know a thing or two about the genre…

      • Not sure I can put my hand up to be any kind of expert. But let me know what spaces there are! If they’re not for me for some reason, I know a few other people who might be interested. πŸ™‚
        Maybe email me directly at kasia_oz(at)hotmail(dot)com
