Misrepresentation of one of my Muses

Lucifer in Chains – Paul Fryer

I love Lucy, I can’t deny it. Despite the bad press, I have to agree with him; Humans suck, and to put them above angels is a crazy thing to do. Having written about him in ‘Of Darkness and Light’ I am aware of the charisma of Lucifer (he was only supposed to be in a brief scene, but wouldn’t allow it to happen!) and maintain that he is just misunderstood.

Ok, being serious now, there will always be a soft spot in my heart for Lucifer (my version) and whilst this sculpture is amazing, to me Lucifer is beautiful. His name means ‘Light bringer’ or ‘Morning Star’ and as such would be beautiful. He is always mentioned as tempting people into sin etc, and to do so would have to be physically appealing. This sculpture shows him to be ugly, and that makes me a little sad.

Anyhoo, enjoy this awesomeness.

All the writing I have done in the last month….

…could fit on the back of a postage stamp! Grrrrr! I just can’t concentrate, it’s really getting old.
I do have one new book at a critique-r’s now so hopefully that might see the light of day.
As far as the ‘Shadow of the Nephilmn’ Trilogy goes, Raziel, Elora and Lucy have completely abandoned me, so any help you can give in summoning them back would be appreciated! The second book ‘Of Blood and Feathers’ is written, but only in draft form, so will need a LOT of work. The frame work is there and it’s pretty action packed. We have a new character or two and my beloved Lucy is never far away.

The third book has no name at present and is something of a patchwork quilt of scenes with no real structure, but I know where I want it to go, it’s just getting there! I’m thinking I might have killed my muses off with sugar as I have been binging on Ms. Cupcake’s cupcakes. I ate 6 in two days, and they’re not little things!
OMG they’re so good. If you’re ever in London, head to Brixton and find the shop…they’re vegan…BUT they don’t taste it. I will be the first to admit that some vegan alternatives are AWFUL, but these honest to Lucifer are better than any non vegan ones I had before I turned Vegan. The ones I had were (if my memory serves) Strawberry, chocolate and peanut butter, mint choc chip, red velvet, lemon and…uh…can’t remember, but they were so good! See pic below!

vegan crack

And we all know what cupcakes equal;

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!

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 ūüė¶

Why isn’t it the 22nd December yet!

Decontamination Dance FTW!

I HATE WORDPRESS!

ImageAm I the only one having serious problems with this site? I have put up three posts and not one of them have shown up, so it looks like I haven’t posted in AGES!

In other news, I have a really rubbish cold, so stay well away! I feel utterly blergh! Hungry but can’t face food, nose hurts from blowing it etc etc ad infinitum.

I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo in Nov and am very excited. This is the most planning I have ever done for a novel. Usually I don’t like planning as I think it limits inspiration and I end up changing it anyway, but it might be easier to hit word targets if I have some idea of what’s going on!

As far as the print version of ‘Of Darkness and Light’ is concerned, 22nd Dec. I’m very excited about the cover as I think it’s gorgeous. The wonderful ‘Must Love Fangs’ on Facebook did it for me and I am in love! Also very jealous as I wouldn’t even know where to start!

Any experts on Enochian/Angelic script? Message me if you have a clue lol.

Lots of love

BTW, The Prophecy gif yay! Go watch this movie if you haven’t seen it, it’s brilliant. Viggo¬†Mortensen is perfect as Lucifer, and Christopher Walken is his usual awesome self!

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
