Just had coffee with a friend. She gave me the best frigging b’day present ever (it could only be topped if she had brought me the man himself) He touched this! He signed my name! Holy ****! *dies*

003

The only downside is that he was in the country and I knew nothing about it! My stalking skills are clearly failing me. She also got a hug from him and a photo, though she doesn’t really have any clue who he is!

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.

My Profile is here;

Dark Company

Published 10/04/2013 by Lily Crussell

I ordered my copies of ‘Dark Company’; http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dark-Company-Collection-Various-Authors/dp/148196433X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365580732&sr=8-1&keywords=dark+company

http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Company-Collection-Various-Authors/dp/148196433X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1365580754&sr=8-1&keywords=dark+company

My short story ‘Sweet Dreams’ is included. Please consider buying a copy as all the money raised goes to buildon.org which is a charity that works to ensure everyone has access to an education.

If you can’t afford it or don’t want it (how could you not?) PLEASE go click the little ‘Like’ button on Amazon, and promote it. This book came about due to all the authors involved being screwed over by a publisher (I’m sure you know who I’m talking about) and rather than let it destroy us (though that didn’t stop it hurting!) we produced something positive from it.

I will be giving away 5 copies, all of which I will sign if that’s what you would like. I will also include any random swag I have lying around such as bookmarks etc. What do you have to do to win? Promote the heck out of this book, Like it, tweet it, share it. Like the Facebook Page; https://www.facebook.com/DarkCompanyAnthology?ref=hl
Send people to my fan page; https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lily-Crussell/229502913788140?ref=hl You know the drill. Make sure people say that you sent them though! I will decide on an end date when I see how it goes as I know I’ve been out of the loop for a while. It’ll be a month or so. Go get promoting!

In other news, please be conscious of who you are adding as ‘friends’ on FB. Myself and the authors included in this collection have all had unwanted attention from a certain individual who has set up no end of fake profiles!

Also, who saw the Walking Dead Finale? Heh heh heh is all I will say.

Obligatory NR GIF; fyeah

He is so pretty!
Anyhoo, Love and hugs Lily x

P.S My name is spelt wrong in the book, so don’t search it via me name. It’s spelt Lily Crussel on Amazon, but we’re working to fix it x

And this, just because I can *dies* Oh my!
ReedusRichards

OOOOOH AND BEFORE I FORGET! I have been adding bits and pieces to Wattpad, so go check them out. My whole story ‘Little Blue Slips’ is up, along with all of ‘Love on the Run (From Zombies)’

Lazy Moo!

I need someone to stand over me with a whip (*coughNormanReeduscough*) so I actually write! I’ve done nothing in AGES! Ok, I’ve sorted files out and ensured things are backed up, but I haven’t done anything remotely productive in days! Urgh! I blame pictures like this;

omg

Explain to me how I’m supposed to achieve anything when my mind is exploding with a 50 Shades remake involving Daryl Dixon???

The internet is one of the wonders of modern technology, but it is also a procrastinator’s nightmare.

Things I should be doing;

-Writing

-Editing

-Sorting out a release for ODAL

-ANYTHING other than surfing the net.

What I actually am doing;

-Day dreaming about chocolate

-Watching cute videos of kittens.

-Cyber stalking Norman Reedus @wwwbigbaldhead

-Look at gifs/pictures/info about a certain Mr. Reedus.

-Thinking about writing….

-Eating too much.

-Joining Flamenco classes.

 

My problem is, I never used to have enough time, but I MADE time to write. I now have too much, so put things off…then end up wondering where the day went!

NaNo was…well I didn’t succeed, I half wrote two pieces as I lost all enthusiam for the first one after about 25,000 words (not a good idea) and figured it was better to start something new and actually write than to stare at a screen and achieve nothing!

BTW, please, please, please do not tell me what happened in Sunday’s TWD. I’ve already had some of it ruined for me and just want to get at least one surprise from the ep.

I woudl appologise for the Reedus worship but 1) I’m the singlest singleton on the face of the earth right now, and 2) I’m not remotely sorry -he’s AWESOME!

And on that note, I leave you to go think about writing some more (please someone hit me until I do!)

This is solely for my own amusement ;p ;

stompass This is what I should be saying to the hundreds of words I HAVEN’T written today 😦

Block and stupid wrists

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

Love and Hugs

 Oh yes, we will have more angry Dixons! Booyah! x

I hate my computer!

Published 02/10/2012 by Lily Crussell

Sorry for the lack of posts, but my lappy hasn’t been able to cope with WP for some reason! It’s been completely useless, but for now it seems to be playing ball so I will take advantage!

Not much to tell in the way of writing as I’m working on a few things. I’m hoping to send out one book for a critique soon, it;s the one I’ve sent out to my Beta readers and I think it’s the most complete book I have so far. Of Darkness and Light is driving me a little mental at the moment as I can’t bring myself to reread it to even think about the follow up ‘Of Blood and Feathers’ as I have read it so many times! No more! Not for the moment anyway!

Other than that, not much to tell though I do have some suggestions if you’re bored;

9gag.com

buzzfeed.com

cracked.com

As I waste waaaaay too much time on them. On a plus, apparently it’s been scientifically proven that looking at pictures of cute animals makes you more productive. That has to be a lie as if I look at cute animals, I then look up more cute animals, and more and more until it’s been three hours and I have no idea where the time went!

I’m currently reading ‘Jin-shei’ by Alma Alexander, which I’ve read before but found a copy of so thought I’d reread it. I also started the ‘Flowers in the Attic’ series by Virginia Andrews. I’ve finished the second book, but don’t know if I can bring myself to read the third as I just want to punch Cathy in the face repeatedly!

As the weather gets crappier, I thought I’d share my uber secret recipe for VEGAN hot chocolate. I honestly think it tastes better than the normal kinds I used to drink before I turned Vegan. By super secret, I mean I stole it mwahahahhahahaha!

I use rice milk as it’s sweet, but soya, almond and other fake milks work just as well, but they will affect the taste.

Mug of rice milk, chuck it in pan (not the mug, just the milk), chuck in vanilla essence (I use one measure of the cap as the bottles tend to be quite small, then agave syrup (I found this in the whole foods section, it’s made from cacti which sounds gross, but it’s really nice and low GI) I personally just throw it in without measuring. Once it boils, mix in a tablespoon (obv depends on how big the mug is as you may need more or less) of cocoa power. I use Bournville as it’s gorgeous! Make sure it’s all mixed in properly and then drink when cool enough! Booyah! Ensure you’re curled up with a good book whilst drinking!

Also! I am utterly, utterly in love with Fightstar at the moment. Trust me to re-love them when they’re on long term Hiatus! They’re a Brit band and I had their album ‘Grand Unification’ but had never bothered to look up the others. THEY’RE AMASING! To get a feel for them, look up ‘Floods’, ‘The English Way’, ‘Waste a Moment’, ‘Tonight we Burn’. ‘Unfamiliar ceilings’. So good! Their lead singer Charlie Simpson also has a solo album called ‘Young Pilgrim’ which I also adore! Look up ‘thorns’ it is such a sweet song!

Unfortunately my Reedus addiction only seems to get worse on a daily basis, so BOOM;
