What's new with Riley
The big current news........ my new book release!
This is where I can keep you updated with what's new in my life. Because one of the most common questions I get asked is, 'Where do you get your inspiration?' The answer is simply, everywhere. I like to take advantage of my everyday life to provide the best inspiration, and it does so well.
Thought of the day
“Do you see that person with their nose in between the pages of a book and smiling a secret smile meant only for the character that they're in love with? That's what I want to spend my life creating.” - Riley Maylon
So obviously on the writing front, what's new with me is the release of 'Seraphina's Fall.'
Due for release on the 28th February 2018. Available from all major online booksellers.
On the personal side.......
I'm off travelling again, seeking inspiration wherever I go. This time I'm off to India. I can't wait to meet new people and experience a new culture. This will be my first time to India and I'm very excited

Tips for inspiration
If you're following your dream like me to be a writer and find yourself stuck for inspiration, then here a couple of my personal tips. One, stop what you're doing and walk away. If you're doing what you love, it shouldn't be this hard. So take a break, get your mind off everything. Sometimes the best inspiration happens by accident and when you're least expecting it. Two, distract yourself. One of the funniest stories I ever wrote was inspired by watching my little brother knock himself out on a goal post at a local park. Do anything other than write until you're feeling ready again. Be careful not to let distraction be disguised by procrastination (its evil twin). Good luck!
