I’ve had a couple of pieces of my work on Wattpad for a while, and ‘Love on the Run (From Zombies)’ is up to 3100 reads, which is great, but not enough. Please help spread the word about my work as Wattpad is completely FREE, and I’m hoping it will be a good forum for people to give feedback in the way of comments and votes.
OK, I think we all know that Norman Reedus has my heart, BUT, I have a new hero. She doesn’t use a crossbow, she doesn’t kill zombies (that I know of lol) but the only weapon she needs is the truth! Check out her blog!
I have tried (unsuccessfully) to post on here for about a week and my laptop is not playing ball. I don’t know if it doesn’t like the site, or it just doesn’t like days ending in -day….urgh.
I’ve seen the possible covers for my book and am very excited. ‘Must Love Fangs’ on facebook is doing it for me, my problem is that all the options she shows me are great, so how am I supposed to choose? We’re looking at a Dec 22nd release and I am waaaaaay too impatient to wait that long! I will have a couple of copies to give away, but most will be available from Mystic Press etc. I will hopefully be flogging a tonne to family and friends too!
The e-book is gone from Amazon for the time being so it can be relaunched (Editted and everything! Unlike the last time where I paid £300 for it to be editted…BADLY!) Anyhoo, rant over.
Holy crap did you all see The Walking Dead? I’m in the UK so haven’t seen ep 2 (no spoilers) but I AM LOVING the extra Daryl action! I would quite honestly have sold a kidney to be Carol in that episode. Woah! Jealous much ;p
I was doing voluntary work at the primary school where my mum works and they had me covering and labelling books. I have no problem with boring repetitive jobs (all the more time to daydream about Norman Reedus) but it has caused me awful pains in my wrists. This means I can’t do any of the things I love I.E Pole (I’ve missed about three weeks now) or large amounts of typing. Not a happy bunny. This isn’t helped by the fact that the weather is rubbish! Grey skies from now until April I think urgh! On the plus side, I did see an awesome motivator that pointed out that girls don’t have to shave their legs until April lol. Unfortunately due to pole classes, I do shave. I shave more for my pole girls than I ever have for a guy. TMI, but c’est la vie. Can you tell I’m bored as I can’t write?
I’ve been reading a lot and finished ‘One Day’ by David Nicholls ridiculously quickly. It’s a sweet enough book and I’ll admit I did see a lot of myself in Emma Morley. Go read it, it’s good. I wasn’t happy with the ending, but there we go.
Other than not, nothing much to tell. The pubslush appeal has been ditched as it just wasn’t happening. I’m thinking of using Createspace to get ‘Of Darkness and Light’ into print, but I’m struggling with finding a cover designer. Don’t get me wrong, there are loads of talented peeps out there, but they’re not doing what I want. I’m picky, what can I say. I just figure if I’m going to do it, I should do it properly with something I am 100% happy with. If you know anyone awesome who can work within the constraints of createspace (I really have no clue how it works) get in contact. Bare in mind I’m poor so nothing ridiculously expensive, unless they will take a kidney as payment. I don’t smoke, drink or do drugs, so my kidney must be in pretty good condition. One careful owner….lol.
THE WALKING DEAD SEASON THREE IS COMING SOON! OMG OMG OMG! I have a sad, sad life lol
I will be in an aritcle in MORE magazine (comes out tomorrow) obviously it won’t be under my pen name :O so you can see how boring my REAL name is 😦
The article is about asexuality, so is slightly adult in nature. I haven’t told anyone other than my parents and you guys so I will probably be getting some scared emails from people I know! For those who haven’t heard the term, Asexuality is a lack of desire or want of sexual relations. Essentially I want every other part of the relationship (kissing, cuddling etc) just not the sex part. I’ve been asked why I’m doing an article when I haven’t even told friends, but I want people to realise what it is. I live in a world where sex is forced down my throat from every direction, and it’s not particularly pleasant. Most people have never even heard of it, so I’m hoping to raise awareness.
Last Tue I went to London to do a photoshoot and interview in a Hotel in the psher area of London. I rocked up in a pair of jeans, getting appalled looks from the staff that worked there! Ooops! They spent over two hours doing makeup and hair, which was new for me as I’ve never had anything like that done before. I’m pretty rubbish at being a girl if I’m honest! The stylist put curls in my hair which I was waaaaaaaay too excited about! Once that was all done, the photos were taken. I’m not going to lie, I used to think models had an easy life, but I’ve learned it’s not much fun being contorted and twisted and being made to sit in painful positions for hours. I won’t be persuing a career in this field that’s for sure! The positions that looked ‘natural’ were ways I would never sit or lie as they were bent all over the place! Between shots, my hair would be fussed over, my clothes etc. Whilst it was a lot of fun for a one off, I couldn’t do it daily. I’d probably go crazy!
The hotel room had a gorgeous four poster bed and was ridiculously posh. I felt out of place just being there! All the staff were amasingly reassuring and sweet and they couldn’t have been more welcoming and friendly. Once the photos were done, and I managed to FINALLY get the skinniest skinny jeans in the world off, everyone left and it was time for the interview. That was surprisingly easy too as it was just like chatting to a friend. Everyone was wonderful as I’d been utterly terrfied! I wish I’d taken some photos of the room as there’s no way I’ll ever be in anywhere that posh again lol!
I have been writing madly (between bouts of serious procrastination whilst looking at 9gag.com, buzzfeed and cracked.com lol) and have written 101,741 words in about two weeks. That is insane! Ok, I’m not going to lie, most of it is trash! It’s pretty much a fantasy story (not unicorns etc, I mean if I could write my own life, what I would like to happen) Might stick a unicorn in it though as if I could write my own life, there would be unicorns.
Having a giveaway on my fanpage on facebook. We’re at 1028 Likes! It’s insane!
Also, have my beta readers reading my newest completed work, so it’s just a case of waiting for that to come back.
Crazy! Utterly unimaginable previously, but I’m very excited! I will be doing more giveaways when I hit the big 1000, only about 20 more people to go, yay!
What have I been up to recently? Not much if I’m honest. I’ve been signed off work for a few weeks and have just been trying to get my head together, which isn’t going so well. Turning 29 makes you wonder what it is you’ve done with your life so far and I just don’t have a whole lot to show for it. I’ve started two new books in two days as my thoughts are so scattered! I’ve also been watching a lot of movies to try to not ‘think’ so I have been drowning in Norman Reedus, which is pretty much every girl’s dream right? What do you mean you’ve never heard of him!?!
Anyhoo, the newest book is with the Beta readers, so hopefully once they’re done with it, I can get to work on it again and make changes and get it out to agents etc. Urgh, such a long, drawn out process. There are still queries out from my last set I sent out over six months ago! There’ll be another ice age before they’re all back no doubt.
I’m going though a popcorn and ramen noodles phase at the moment, I can’t get enough of either! Not good as neither are particularly nutritious, but there we go. I’ve been binging on cherries as they seem to be in season right now and have overkilled slightly lol.
Sorry about the random post, but my head’s all over the place at the moment.
Love and hugs
Season Two of The Walking Dead is out on DVD soon! SO EXCITED! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! lol
