About / Contact

Welcome to my writing blog, which aims to create insightful, relevant content to encourage new writers and support authors with book launches, reviews, guest posts and useful links.  

I average 10,000 to 20,000 visitors a month, about a third US and a third Europe, with a growing audience in Australia and the far-east. The most popular posts are about how and why people write - and get a lot of repeat visits, even over a year later.  To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe by e-mail or have them sent straight to your Kindle.

I like to hear from readers and other authors, so please feel free to visit my website www.tonyriches.com and get in touch by email tonyriches @ live.com  or follow me on Twitter @tonyriches my Facebook author page and Google+  +Tony Riches 

★ Reviewers are welcome to request free review copies of my eBooks.

★ Writers are invited to guest post on book launches, poetry or anything on writing.

★ Readers  - it is always good to have feedback, so let me know what you think?

Book Reviews on The Writing Desk 

Due to the high level of demand I am only currently accepting new review requests for historical fiction books in Kindle mobi format. Books are only accepted free of charge with the understanding that gifted material is subject to the same unbiased review standard I use for titles I purchase.

Short Bio

I was born in Pembrokeshire, West Wales and spent part of my childhood in Kenya. After gaining a BA degree in Psychology and an MBA from Cardiff University I worked as a Management Consultant, followed by senior roles in the Welsh NHS and Local Government. 

I wrote several successful non-fiction books before writing historical fiction. I am currently working on the sequel to my bet selling Tudor Trilogy, and have returned to Pembrokeshire, where I enjoy sailing and sea kayaking.
