The Angst of Being a Writer

Many of the people I meet, on hearing I write, tend to say, ‘Wow, that must be great being at home writing all day and seeing the fruit of your labours in print at the end of it?’

They make it all sound so easy when in fact in between those two words  - ‘Great’ and ‘Print’ are ones like, Procrastination, Frustration, Indolence, Despair, Self-Doubt and at times sheer panic.

A Christmas story...at last!

I’m so delighted to tell you a little about my new novel, What Happened To Us?  You will have probably already guessed that this is a Christmas read from the lovely spangly cover my publishers have designed for it. It is just gorgeous, isn’t it?

Top Aria Summer Reads!

Hello Aria addicts, 

I hope you’ve been enjoying the scorching summer weather that we’ve been blessed with in the UK! If you’re lucky enough to be sitting on a beach, or will be soon, I’ve collated some of Aria’s top summer reads that will bring laughter, tears and smiles to your sunbathing sessions. 

And if you don’t get to sit on a beach anytime soon or the weather inevitably turns back to British Grey, I hope that these books can bring a little bit of sunshine and fun back to your rainy days… 

The Lucky Dress. And I feel like a lucky author!

First of all, look at that cover! WOW! I’m like a proud mom with a beautiful child that I want everyone to adore. I’m so proud I may or may not have had it printed and framed and hung on my office wall alongside its previous cover. It’s just beautiful and exactly fitting for the story inside.

Two Years on and Going Strong!

Hello all, we can’t quite believe that it has been a whole TWO years since we sprung up out of the ground and into the digital stratosphere… and what an amazing two years it has been.

Aria has published over one hundred books and sold more than two million units in this time – quite an achievement, if we do say so ourselves! 

Meet Zoe Folbigg

Hey there! I’m Zoë and I’m super excited to be launching my debut novel, The Note, through amazing Aria, on 1st October.

I’m a magazine journalist by trade, having earned my stripes on the copy desk at Cosmo; editing features for its teenage little sister CosmoGIRL!; then diving into ivory tulle and meringues at wedding magazines including Condé Nast Brides and Cosmo Bride. When I became a mum I started freelancing from my kitchen table, writing health, fitness, parenting and travel features for magazines and newspapers, before writing The Note, my debut novel.
