Mother’s Day Gifts! MLS Bookshop

I’m super excited to introduce these new products that I have been working day and night on, and I truly hope you like them. There are more in the works but I wanted to get these out quickly as they make awesome Mother’s Day Gifts!

So originally I had planned on making products with the MLS logo on them, but after a few stressful days of research and the headache of red-tape, I discovered that I could not use the logo I had created, on merchandise. So I’ve gone back to the drawing board with our logo, but in the meantime I have designed some cute MLS Merchandise that is now available through the MLS Bookshop. I am using our Etsy store as the point of sale at the moment but hopefully in the near future I can make these available directly from this site.

WIN the Mum Life Stories Anthology for Mother’s Day!

*This competition has now ended*

It’s competition time again and I have one brand new copy of the very first Mum Life Stories: Micro-Fiction anthology to give away.

In 2020 we ran 6 micro-fiction writing competitions and collected 60 beautiful stories from talented writers all over the world. Those stories were compiled into this inspiring anthology and represent just a tiny number of the millions and millions of untold stories of brave, strong, determined and captivating mothers throughout the ages.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, you could get your hands on a FREE copy of this awesome anthology and make your Mother’s (or your own) day! Entering is super simple.
