WOAH! EXCITED!

Published 02/03/2014 by Lily Crussell

I post books on Wattpad, along with poetry, and don’t tend to look at the number of reads as it didn’t seem to change dramatically. BUT! The last time I checked the number of reads for ‘Love on the run (from Zombies)’ it was at 3,000 ish reads.

IT’S NOW AT 13,700! How did this happen? How did I not notice?
So appreciative of everyone that has read it and commented. Please go take a gander and let me know what you think as I can’t improve without feedback!

Also there will be a second book in the series…at some point. It’s half written, but needs a lot of work (the story of my life!)

My work on Wattpad;

Little Blue Slips; http://www.wattpad.com/story/4912874-little-blue-slips
‘When Shannon starts at a new school, she is worried about the usual concerns; making friends, getting lost and keeping up with her work, but when she becomes the fixation of the school psycho and little blue slips begin appearing in her locker, all she cares about it making it through each day.’

Love on the Run (from zombies); http://www.wattpad.com/story/2280395-love-on-the-run-from-zombies
‘Rain has loved Jack for as long as she can remember, but it takes the zombie apocalypse for him to notice her.’

Stupid and Crazy; http://www.wattpad.com/story/12046297-stupid-and-crazy
‘It would never work. He’s a smoker, I’m anti-smoking. He’s worships Jack Daniels and I’m a teetotal-er. He has a son, I don’t want kids. He’s beautiful, talented and popular, I’m none of those things. He’s a Hollywood movie star and I’m…well…’

Oh Loki, you don’t know the half of it!

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.

Getting Old

Published 19/12/2012 by Lily Crussell

I really, really can’t be bothered to drag the whole thing up again, but it is STILL a problem and I’m honestly getting thoroughly fed up about it now. Anything you read about me that is negative…come ask me about it as it’s unlikely to be true if from certain sources.

Anyway, enough of that boring bull.

I’ve seen people are doing this;

http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/26-random-acts-of-kindness

And honestly, I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to those people who were killed in that senseless way. I have one request though – please remember the children that were killed in China too. No one seems to be talking about that which makes me really angry as the loss of life is horrific regardless of where in the world it happened.

I managed one act today as I’m a bit slow on the uptake;

In England we have people selling a magazine called the Big Issue, it’s about current events and gives jobs to homeless/unemployed people. Today I paid for an xmas issue (£3) and told her to keep the mag. Tiny, tiny thing in the big scheme of things, but the smile the woman gave me was enough to make me grin for the rest of the day. If you want to take part in this, it would also help to spread the word by leaving notes like the article shows above, then more people will know and will hopefully take part. I think the one thing the world can never have too much of is kindness.

Go forth and commit some acts of gratuitous KINDNESS!

Love and Hugs

My new Hero!

Published 09/12/2012 by Lily Crussell

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!

All self publishing authors need to follow her as she is brutaly honest – just as we need her to be.

 

Here’s a gif of my boy so we don’t all get withdrawal symptoms due to the mid season break 😦

Love and hugs y’all!

Anyone know how to….

Add my NaNoWriMo widget to this blog? It only seems to give me the option to use their ready made widgets and I want to put a word count NaNo one up 😦

Why isn’t it the 22nd December yet!

Decontamination Dance FTW!

Laptop I hate you!

Published 22/10/2012 by Lily Crussell

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
