Meet hte Author: TK Orbelyan

  I am happy to be welcoming author, TK Orbelyan to Books, Life and Everything today. His latest psychological thriller, Fangs of Deception was published by i2i Publishing on February 1st 2023.   Welcome to Books, Life and Everything !    Would you like to start by telling us a little about yourself and how you started as a writer? I have been an avid researcher for years, ever since I began realising that the world we live in is based on an intricate web of lies. In recent years I have worked as an editor and investigative journalist, but the transition to becoming a writer – especially of novels – arose when I realised that the truth about what is really going on in the world could be more easily conveyed through interesting easy-to-read novels rather than fact-heavy journalistic articles.

 My Thoughts

Lizzie's book is eminently readable and has an approachable and can-do tone. It gives practical advice to writers, which it is clear, derived from first-hand experience of its subject matter. Looking in turn at each aspect of social media, the reader will find at least one which they can identify with as a starting point. Full of tips and links, this is a book which someone can dip in and out of, as required, and keep as a reference point. 

    I particularly liked how the author not only advises you on a course of action but gives practical advice on how to carry it out. For example, when she advises you to always have some business cards to hand, she also tells you where you can get them made up. She also recommends some sites to visit if you are looking to produce some handy graphics. 

In short: Clear, concise, approachable- a great resource!
