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
But I can’t tell you yet. Mwaahahahahahahhaaa! I’ll keep you posted x
I woke up in Silent Hill today! It’s so foggy outside! Pretty cool though. I will be hiding out drinking green tea today I think (it’s vile, but so good for you I have to wait until it’s cool enough and down it!) blergh!
I’ve been uploading more chapters of ‘Love on the Run (From Zombies!) to Wattpad. They are only really drafts as I wrong it a long time ago and don’t want to spend weeks editing it when I’m offering it for free (I have other things I need to be sorting out and am drowning in editing at the moment) My wattpad profile es aqui; http://wattpad.com/LilyCrussell
Also, please go support a friend of mine (I say friend, we’ve never met, but we chat online all the time and she cracks me up!) she’s been working in the movie industry and has been writing a blog about it. Even I don’t know who ‘Van Murphy’ is as despite constant badgering, her lips are sealed! Her blog es aqui;http://ianamacmanus.blogspot.co.uk/?zx=5fc3dfa4f40f369a
It’s restricted because of the swearing, from what she’s told me there isn’t anything porny or awful other than the language.
If you can guess who ‘Van Murphy’ is, let me know as it’s driving me slightly mental. She’s given me ALL of her diary so far (there is hell of a lot more to come) to look through and I’m thinking of bribing her with cupcakes to find out. Also, she’s a Vegan which makes her a sister of mine as us weirdo Vegans have to stick together. Go check her out, she’s awesome. Also leave comments as she really wants feedback and having been through what she has, she can handle criticism.
Love and hugs
It had to be used again. Tyrion rocks!
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;
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;
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!
Anyhoo, if you’re UK, check it out tomorrow!
Love and hugs Lily x
I’m stuck on $215! Anyone have any ideas on how to spread the word for my donations page? I have 57 days left and I get nothing if I don’t hit a target! Argh!
