Britain’s Worst TV Shows

I envy American’s, I do. They have the Appalachians, the Smithsonian, prom, amazing college life and the CW. I know, the CW, hardly something to be envious about, right? WRONG! The CW houses shows such as Arrow, The Flash, Vampire Diaries and Legends of Tomorrow. Sure, we get those shows eventually, we just have to…

Reaching Out

I’ve been a busy little bee! Nestpitch, writing my book, designing its cover and some graphics for when it’s ready to go, go, go and I even have a book trailer, which I can’t wait to show you all. However, as well as all of that, I’ve been doing a little something else which I…

An Incredible Journey

Safe to say, that being long listed for an award has sunk in now. I was on a total high when I wrote my last blog post, and while I’m still on a high, I’m not so giddy. But, hey – we’re all crazy really, right? Even if I go no further, it’s been an…

Best News EVER!!! (I’m freaking out.)

I am drooling! And for once, it’s not because of this guy: Ohhh, now that I added that picture, I might be drooling over him just a little bit. But, no – he’s not the reason for my ecstatic ‘lock her away quick before she hurts something’ bouncing around, shoving my phone in peoples faces…

Phalngewilly Grandypants: What’s in a name?

When I’m considering a new New Adult Contemporary Romance book to add to my collection, the first thing I do is read the blurb. My preference is dual POV, so I look out for that. I want a believable conflict, so I look out for that too. Sometimes, I fancy a gritty read, so I…

Oh, Happy Day!

I’ve had a great day today. A really great day. Possibly fuelled by nailing CampNaNoWriMo yesterday—YEAH I DID, BOOM! Today started off as it usually does, got up, got the girls ready for school and off they went. Then I did some spine stretches, yep—I still have a poorly spine, posture people, it’s important! As…

For The Love of Reading #TheQ4Q

Recently, something on Twitter caught my eye. A true story about a young woman whose life had taken an utterly terrifying and brutal turn when she was just eighteen years old. NAalley – a fantastic site about everything New Adult, put their heads together to figure out a way to help and they came up…

A Creative Week

As the working week draws to a close, I feel a lot has been accomplished this week. I rarely think about things like this, but a post I read on another blog got me thinking! My husband survived his first week of work and he loved it. He’s doing a bricklaying apprenticeship. He already had…

Short Story: Adrift

I recently took part in a visual writing prompt exercise over on Lori L. Clark’s blog. I usually take my inspiration from music. I find the notes tell a story of their own. I also find that staring at a picture can bring it to life, I’d just never considered writing the story down. So,…
