Blogolepsy is run by three students currently living in the UK. All three of us write, all three of us read, and all three of us are doing our best to write here when we have time.
Hi, I’m G. I’m probably the most active on here, and post a lot of the book reviews, opinions and revision posts. I also do all of the web design and most of the graphics.
Most of my writing at the moment is for uni. That means a tonne of short stories and smaller projects. In terms of bigger things, most of what I write falls into the YA zone. I have so far written one book, Fate, which is available to read for free on Tablo.io. I thought I had finished it, but then I’ve rethought the whole thing and I’m redoing it. After five years, I’m not sure it’ll ever be done!
I am currently working on the super sarcastic supernatural extravaganza Necrosis with Kit, and a sequel to Fate, Death, along with my latest mildly insane idea, which should appear on Tablo soon. My favourite book series is The Darkest Powers Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong, and (as I couldn’t pick a favourite book) my top three favourite books are A Swift Pure Cry by Siobhan Dowd, The Chemist by Stephenie Meyer and Paperweight by Meg Haston.
I’m in my second year of studying Creative Writing at Aberystwyth university. In my free time, I’m the current president of AberPhoenix, a society to bring survivors of assault and abuse together, which Kit is also on the committee for. I’m also doing work experience as a web content editorial assistant at the New Welsh Review. In other words, I have a pretty busy timetable, hence my frequent inactivity.
Hey, I’m Kit, co-author of said sarcastic supernatural extravaganza Necrosis. G told me to introduce myself so here I am. I mostly like writing horror, horror comedies or surrealism. I’ve written a few short stories in the past but nothing that long so writing Necrosis should be pretty interesting. I’m also currently working on a fantasy horror novel which remains unnamed so far.
A few of my favourite books (because I have a list of at least a hundred) are Welcome To Night Vale A Novel by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, The Girl With All The Gifts by MR Carrey and 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. My favourite book series are the Ashes series by Ilsa J Bick and the Virals series by Kathy Reichs. Like my writing, I prefer reading horror or science fiction.
I’m currently at college studying Animal Management and hope to study Zoology at university in the future. Basically I’m the least qualified here to talk about anything literature related but here I am anyway!
Hey Blogoleptics, I’m Lydia and the last to introduce myself, so take from that what you will.
I’m currently just starting out as a novelist, with the start of a trilogy Below Moons, and the stand alone novels Battlefields: The Implosions and Purple. My current focus is on Battlefields where I’m attempting to upload a new chapter every two weeks on to Tablo. My genre, broadly speaking, is fiction but my style ranges from Young Adult up to Adult fiction, with supernatural or Sci-fi elements.
Like the others, we’re readers, so I definitely don’t have a favourite book but can also definitely recommend a couple. Recently, I’ve been reading The Dispossessed, a political Sci-fi based on American society that’ll just leave you shook for weeks. My go to book growing up though was always Harry Potter and any book by John Green or Rick Riordan is probably worthwhile too.
The goal is to be a successful author but in the mean time I take English Literature and Language A-Levels, wanting to work as an English teacher or newspaper editor.
