Welcome to Northern Chapters!

What is this place? Northern Chapters is my blog for sharing thoughts and ideas on writing, reading, self-publishing, life in general… To sum up: everything I find interesting.

The blog’s name comes from two very simple things: I live in Finland which is in Northern Europe (hence ‘Northern’), and chapters just go well with books.


Who am I, then? I’m Niina, a writer from Finland. While I wait to acquire a dragon of my own, I dedicate my time to writing about them or other mystical beings. Magic and fantasy are close to my heart but I won’t turn away from sci-fi either.

So far I’ve fulfilled my childhood dream of publishing a book (twice) but I still spend my days scribbling. My biggest goal in the writerly world is reaching people who truly enjoy my work and perhaps even make new friends on the way.

I’m also a proud owner of a Welsh Corgi Cardigan called Gimli. You can find pictures of his cute little face on Instagram.

What to expect? New posts at random intervals. I’ve been off my blogging game for quite a while now so I’m taking it slow, posting when I feel like it until I can get myself back to a proper schedule. Occasionally I’ll throw around some Friday Snippets which are short and sweet posts that can be anything from a quote to a video.

What can you do? Comments and questions are always greatly appreciated. I’m also looking for guest bloggers so contact me if you want to become one! Lurkers, watchers and followers welcome too.

You can contact me through the blog posts or send me an email to: draconnairia [at] live [dot] fi

You can also find me on GoodreadsTwitter and NaNoWriMo.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your stay!

– Niina Paasikallio

    • Thank you for your kind words, I’m happy to hear you’ve enjoyed my blog! I do still use the email mentioned and should be able to get back to you a bit later today 🙂


  1. Congrats on publishing your two books! I’m not sure about how I’m going to publish mine, but I don’t even have to think about that for another year at least (longer because of the editing I’ll need!). Glad to be following you (and thanks for following me!), looking forward to future (and reading past) posts!

  2. Hello,

    Not sure if you remember but you let me include some of your words in my book Fall in Love with Writing,

    Thank you so much for letting me include your words. Sorry if this has already been sent, but just wanted to let you know that it’s published as an ebook.

    If you want to grab a copy it’s $3.99 in US dollars. You can find it on Amazon but just make sure you go to your country’s version of the website: http://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B019CDRZXA?%2AVersion%2A=1&%2Aentries%2A=0

    Don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle, the Kindle Cloud Reader is free and allows you to read Kindle books.

    Hope you like it. Thanks heaps!
