My Five Favourite Writing Rums: Indie October Guest Post By CG Hatton

indie october 4

CG Hatton, author of the wonderful Thieves Guild Series, who is busy slaving away with the eight novel and thus in need of more rum, presents her five favourite writing rums! This is because she has a wonderful way of turning Rum is to words, for which we, her readers, are ever grateful because they’re such fabulous words. Take note, supply writers with rum… (intro by mark)




Bumbu: this is a strange one, tastes awesome and is good for times when a few unexpected twists, turns and shocking reveals are needed.




Bacardi Gold and Bacardi Oakheart: always a good writing rum, Bacardi has a special place in the history of the Thieves’ Guild and its tradition of intrigue, pacts and secrets never to be told…





Captain Morgan’s Spiced: this is a firm favourite for those everyday writing moments when the story is ticking along just fine and everyone is behaving… or not. Captain Morgan’s Black Spiced and Private Stock are special treats and saved for darker times when the ante needs to be upped and the drama intensifies.




Kraken Black Spiced: this is the special stuff for special times when the stakes get serious, threat levels rise and the pace needs to be increased. Must admit, this is the one I go through the most…





Dark Matter: I’ve not been able to touch Dark Matter since I finished Darkest Fears, but here it is, still at the number one spot and still there on the shelf… waiting… dark times are ahead.
