Like what you read? Ask me to write  on a topic of your choice.

The author of this blog is a former scientist (Molecular Biology, protein translation) exercising her cognitive surplus.

The blog title is a pun on Go West by Pet Shop Boys, the first clip I’ve ever seen on Soviet TV. I used to work with baker yeast (see below).

The blog consists of a mix of popular science posts and posts about writing and books.

The blog itself is an overflow from other, mostly paid writing activities. And you know how overflow works: sometimes the cup runneth over, sometimes it’s dry.  I post once a month on average.

Please, comment and subscribe – subscription form at the top of the right column of the main page.

Some examples of my work in Contently Portfolio.

I also have another blog,  GREEN THUMB/BLACK THUMB,  about home plants.

My former research object, baking yeast cells under the microscope: 1) Light microscope; 2) Red dye stained membranes; 3) Green fluorescent protein in the cytoplasm; 4) Nucleus stained with blue; 5) All merged.

  1. Thanks for sharing your experience with BookHub. As a new author, I am always looking for ways to get exposure. As a result of your article, it appears that BookHub may not be a good deal for new indie authors.
    You indicated that you like doing reviews. I would be most appreciative if you would consider reviewing my book found at http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B018G7NXKW?ref=aw_sitb_end_act_to_dtl

    If you agree, I would love to make a Kindle version available to you. Thanks.

    • I’m glad that you believed my post about BookHub. I’ve also seen in the news that amazon intends to purge fake, paid for reviews, so it’s not a good idea to use companies like this.

      Although I’ve read the Bible, I’m not a religious person, so I’m not sure that I can be an adequate reviewer for your book. But if you think that my opinion can be useful, please contact me using doroninavicki[at]gmail.com
