The Help Forum

This is the place to ask questions about the Colony itself and how to use it. It’s not the place to ask about getting your book published, there are plenty of other areas for that including Café Life, the Back Room, and of course the various live events we organize including the Writers’ Huddle and Pop-Up Submissions.

What's Happening

More good news for my client Michelle Paver, Viper's Daughter has been chosen as Children's Book of the Month by Fiona Noble in The Bookseller!
I've praised mobile broadband provider Giff Gaff several times on the Colony. They've just announced they're doubling the allowance of their £20 plan to 80GB of data from 26th February. Well worth a look if you use a dongle.
Big day today, Ian McKellen recording Michelle Paver’s next book in the Wolf Brother series!
Sorry, folk – last-minute substitution: The Lake at Standing Rock by Rachel O'Sullivan will now be on next weeks’ show and has been replaced on today’s show by "PINTO!" by M.J. Evans.
Join me live in the Litopia chat room for today's show... with fiction by Andrew Smith; self-help by Julie Leoni; historical by Hannah Rose Marsden; social thriller by Sinead Nic Cionna; speculative by Rachel O'Sullivan. At 5pm UK.
