Beth Reekles - Start Here

April 28, 2017
Hi there!

Welcome to my blog. I guess you clicked that 'start here' button because you wondered what this whole thing is about. 

In a nutshell: bookish things, writing advice posts, and all that jazz.

An introduction to me

I’m Beth. I'm a twenty-something* Physics graduate from Exeter University. I'm a blogger and hardcore nerd, who now works full-time in IT alongside being an author.

My pen-name is Beth Reekles - I’m a published Young Adult author, and started posting my work online to Wattpad back in 2011. My most well-known work, The Kissing Booth, was published in 2012 and released as a Netflix Original Movie in 2018. The sequel is coming in 2020. 

I've also published YA books: Rolling Dice, Out of Tune, Cwtch Me If You Can, and The Beach House (a spin-off novella to The Kissing Booth). My debut adult novel, It Won't Be Christmas Without You, was published late 2019.

*This is my way of getting out of updating this part for the next ten years.

More about my Writing Wednesdays blog series.

I get a lot of asks from people who want writing advice, and back in 2014 I decided to start a blog series dedicated to writing advice. I ran this for just over a year before taking a break to complete my final year of my degree (in Physics! Whoop! Science!). It started back up properly in 2017.

If you’re here for Writing Wednesdays, you can start reading from the first post right here (each post links to similar topics AND the next post in the series), or you can just check out the Pinterest board and pick your favourites.

If you have a request for a Writing Wednesday post you’d like to see, or if you just want some writing advice, feel free to Tweet me @Reekles and tell me. 

About the Social Media For Writers Series

I found that a lot of writers - those who post on Wattpad and those who are traditionally published - struggle to know how to approach using social media to promote their books and promote themselves as a writer. And I’m really into social media and digital stuff. So I decided to start up a new blog series - read the first post here, or check out the entire series here.

You can also find the posts on my Pinterest board (makes it easier to find the one you want).

And about The Twenty-Something Series

So this is something I started after I quit my grad job. It's a series of lifestyle or opinion posts, which I plan to update around the end of each month, about being a twenty-something. Find them all here.

  1. Beth Reekles people needs kissing booth 2 what's going on? How long are we waiting for part 2?

  2. Hi Beth Reekles- I love the movie "The Kissing Booth" that came out on Netflix. It seems to me that the characters and story itself are well written and I'm thinking of picking up my own copy to read myself, but I HAVE to ask from one writer to another: where did the inspiration of the story come from? (If I may ask.)
