'Accidence Will Happen' - A Brilliant New Grammar Book for Anyone Who Loves English

What is so insufferable about the sticklers is that they will brook no argument. They primly purse their mouths. They stop you mid-anecdote and then they trot out this mealy-mouthed line that they have been using for decades and decades: "I think you mean 'fewer' rather than 'less."

We need to be able to guarantee the safety of all artists and activists for human rights, so that it no longer takes extraordinary courage to call for a better world - so that every person with the ability to imagine peace, equality, progress and justice can express their dreams and hopes without fear.

"How did those hearts get in there?", we hear you cry! The seemingly impossible feat is actually quite easy when you know how. Impress that special someone with these sweet treats from Cupcake Jemma or enjoy all to yourself (you can't be sad when you're holding a cupcake)!

What are you still doing here? You're like a stray following me home; shoo... go away... start writing! Alright, we both know I don't really want you to go away, otherwise I would have just stopped writing and gone and made another coffee.

Do You Want to Convert Your Blog Into a Book?

Mark Hillary

You may have a hundred thousand words of great content, but you may end up stripping away half of that content to preserve your best posts. It is worth thinking about whether you want a literal version of your blogs in book format or whether you can do more with the text when planning how it might be read on the page.

Bulldozing Through the Cradle of British Rock

If ever there was a venue which epitomised our approach to music heritage in this country, it is the Ealing Club. Quite simply it's a huge missed opportunity on a number of levels. The council could be attracting visitors from all around the world to explore the music heritage of Ealing.

Does Enid Blyton Have a Place on My Children's Bookshelf?

Natasha Batsford | Posted 13.04.2015 | UK Entertainment
Natasha Batsford

I was aware that the language was old fashioned, and in some cases offensive, but it never got in the way of my love of the books or the stories they told because (like most children) I cared more about characters than grammar.

Move over Fifty Shades - Retro Erotica Hits the Spot!

When EL James's book exploded onto the scene with tales of - shock horror - how ordinary women were suddenly sneaking off to their bedrooms for a bit of self pleasure with a book, I thought: big deal, some of us have been doing that for years.

'Better Call Saul': Why Isn't Everything This Good?

Max Greenhalgh | Posted 14.04.2015 | UK Entertainment
Max Greenhalgh

Keeping tension and drama going for 90 minutes or two hours is hard enough, but over an entire series or even multiple series could be challenging. Of course, I'm being picky, the truth is I loved it. For me the most exciting thing is I feel there is so much more to come and so many more questions to be answered...

Streaming is upon us, it is one of the buzz words of our era - and understandably so. It may remain a minority sport among music fans (around 12% of spending on music in the UK during 2014), but it is growing at a rapid pace.

It's been a year of gratifying highs and occasional lows. But what the past year has mostly consisted of is surprises: unexpected lessons on what life as a published author is really like. So I thought I'd share a few of them.

As a Trans Woman, You Find That Your Stories Are Rarely Told

In the UK there's never been a trans woman playing a trans woman in a recurring role in a TV series. Whenever there is a trans character before they're played by Cisgender women. What was going to happen, how would people react, would I be hated?

Film Reviews - 'Love is Strange' and 'Dancing in Jaffa'

A beautifully observed and sensitive modern love story with faultless performances contrasts with Pierre Dulaine's dream of ballroom dancing bringing Jewish and Palestinian children together.

'Losing It' by Helen Lederer - An Interview and Book Review

Ruth Jacobs | Posted 12.04.2015 | UK Entertainment
Ruth Jacobs

Packed with hilarious scenes that had me laughing out loud, Losing It is an easy to read book that is hard to put down. Wrapped in this brilliant comedy is the more serious change made by the protagonist, Millie, who loses some of her criticalness of others and herself, which perhaps is an important element of Helen Lederer's new 'Mid-Lit' genre as it is in mid-life.

Jake Kanter

It's a golden age. A purple patch. A triumph of style and substance. Ring out the cliches, because UK telly drama is the cat's pyjamas right now. You don't need to be Sherlock to recognise the quality of the scripted stuff on our screens last year.

Jeff Brazier

Oh how we love to judge! Is it not good to give our love some home truths in the form of some advice or most commonly some harsh criticisms? The majority of anything said from one partner to another would go in one ear and out the other, no matter how much sense it makes to you, it's not their perspective therefore 90% of it goes by the wayside.

Fifty Shades of... Dru?

E.L. James started out writing vampire fan-fiction on the website FanFiction.net about five years ago, and so did I. She concentrated on Edward and Bella in Twilight while I was drawn into Drusilla's rich, dark world of Buffy.

I called to Dan and Lauren to bring the camera over as the monkey lazily flopped down out of the tree and into the grass to start grazing. I think seeing any animal in it's natural habitat is always unforgettable but this was brilliant. I felt like Dian Fossey.

"Bees don't lie" - 'Jupiter Ascending': The Review

Roger Crow | Posted 12.04.2015 | UK Entertainment
Roger Crow

I'd be amazed if this didn't feature heavily in the next Razzie awards. The scene in the finale where a key character's wings unfurl is one of the most laughable I've witnessed in a major film over the past 12 months.
