Back on the Kindle Baby!

Yes Norman, it’s very exciting!
My book is BACK on the Kindle after a couple of months hiatus due to…well a giant clusterf*** of hell involving scam publishers…etc. etc. ad infinitum. I’ve had to put the price up for this reason. I took a financial hit, and whilst that wasn’t your fault, I’m hoping to make it back so I can afford editing etc on future books.

I want to draw special attention to the NEW dedication page;

‘This book is dedicated to so many people I could fill another novel with all the names. I have had unending, generous, wonderful support from people I haven’t even met via Facebook, all offering advice, time and energy to help me when there was no gain in it for them.
Lynn Worton and Emily Goodwin have been amazing. I can’t thank them enough, so dedicate this book to them.
Also to Crystal B. C, Wanda H, Tiffany F, Becky J, Candy S, Heaven and Jazmin F, Angel McC, April A, Heather H A, Jay E, Emily W, Trudy P, Ren R, Tami A and Raina G, Laura LaLa B, Rose H, Rose P, Karol W, Maelina T …I could go on for hours! If I have missed your name, I apologise unendingly, but I am blonde! Hopefully I can use the next book to thank you x

To my parents for advertising and support (both emotional and financial)

To my Mars Boys; JL, SL, TM for providing inspiration via music (and my beloved Echelon). The same to The Cure, Fightstar, Charlie Simpson, Akira Yamaoka, Adam Cohen and Josh Groban.

My Flandus boys; Norman Reedus @wwwbigbaldhead and Sean Patrick Flanery @seanflanery (guilty of introducing me to BJJ.) for never failing to put a smile on my face and being two of the most genuinely generous and sweet men on the planet. Love and Hugs x If they try to kill Daryl off, we will riot!

To the Boondock Betties, Dixon’s Vixens, The Reedus Sluts and every other adoring fan girl out there for being incredibly sweet, hilarious and providing fuel for the Reedus addiction.

To all Vegans, Blood Donors (@GiveBloodNHS) and people with their names on the Organ Register – you’re all my heroes.

To my Nana; Mary Pearl Deedigan, the woman I got my tenacity and stubbornness from. You are missed more than you’ll ever know.

For everyone killing themselves to get into print, I think the Psychedelic furs said it best;

‘Swallow all your tears my love and put on your new face. You can never win or lose if you don’t run the race.’ – Love My Way

Gambatte!’

If I missed you, I’m sorry. I suck. My memory is appalling! There’ll always be the next book…

Love you all x

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

See, Norman Approves! ;p

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!

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

Block and stupid wrists

Published 09/10/2012 by Lily Crussell

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

Wattpad! Love on the Run (From Zombies!)

I’m so annoyed! I spent ages typing out a post and the comp gave up and lost it! Anyway! I have posted one of my works on wattpad. The first two chapters are up, be aware that they haven’t been copy edited or anything like that, so there will be mistakes. I wrote this about five years ago, but it’s been doing the rounds and had no luck! I’ll post more chapters if it’s popular. Please spread the word and let me know honestly what you think.
