Book Stuff...

So yesterday it was my birthday and I became one year closer to hitting 50! Eurgh. That sounds horrifically depressing! Half a century old can't be anything but a bad thing - right?!

Anyway, I have some amazing Facebook buddies who, without my knowledge, set up some giveaways in honour of said birthday in order to help me reach 1000 likes on my author Facebook page. And they bloody well did it! I am now the proud owner of a 1k Like Page! I don't know what that means really, or if it will mean more people actually see my stuff, but it was rather exciting.

I have also had 5 paperback sales now! Whoop! Go me! Which amounts to about a fiver's worth of royalties! It's a joke really, so where this idea that throwing books out every month makes a quick buck has come from I do not know! Indie authors do not make any money really!

So here are some pictures of the gorgeous paperbacks that have been purchased...


And this is me with my proof copy! I stared at it all day I think! And yes, I am kissing it! 

So have you got your copy yet?

Rubbish at blogging...

Good morning everyone.

I am ridiculously sorry about the lack of posts recently. I could once again ply you with excuses, but I won't embarrass myself or bore you!

So a few things have been happening in my little book world. I've been overwhelmed by the response to my words and have been so lucky to receive some incredible 5 star reviews. They keep drifting in and each and every one of them floors me. I don't think I will ever get used to this feeling.

Also, my book is now available to buy on paperback! Having the physical book in my hands is indescribable. I just can't wrap my head around the fact that I wrote all those words and all those words form paragraphs and all those paragraphs fit together to make the chapters of a story. I wonder if J K Rowling has these feelings still, or wether it dissipates as time goes on and the more famous you get. Not that I am expecting to come famous any time soon, although it would be bloody lovely!

I have signed my first copy for my sister in law, and that was rather a surreal feeling too!

I went to my first signing in March too. That was an amazing experience. I went as a reader that time, but hopefully, one of these days, I will be behind the table. I think I will ensure I have a couple more books under my belt first.

So anyway. I thought it was about time that I jumped back onto this blogging bandwagon and try to touch base with any of you that actually read this shit!

Ciao for now, Trumpers,

It's Live

I've been rubbish again. This releasing a book lark is time consuming to say the least! Anyway, I just popped on to say, "I've done it!" 

My debut novel is now live and available to download immediately to your kindle! 

I'm overwhelmed and rather stunned at the moment so my feelings aren't clear really! Although I am excited at the number of people who have chosen to read already! 

Thank you everyone! 

I had a beautiful review yesterday too from the Book Hangover Page, which blew me away...

Anyway, it's another short and sweet one, and I will leave you again with the buy links and a couple of new teasers.

It's nearly time...

Guys, I feel sick...

I've sent my manuscript off to be formatted and as soon as it comes back I'll be uploading to Amazon and it will be available for pre-order! That's some scary shit right there. 

So anyway, I realised I hadn't shared any teasers or anything with you so that's all this post will be about tonight. Mostly because I have foolishly signed up to NaNoWriMo so my time is precious... More on that in a new post I think! So for now, here's all the promo stuff... Enjoy! 



Early review...

That's all folks!

Cover Reveal Day!

So today was cover reveal day for Housing Elephants! I was so excited to share this beautiful thing with everyone. 

It was designed by the wonderful L J Stock, who is not only an amazing author but also a wizard with graphs too. She has designed my whole package, banners, teasers, everything, and has done a stunning job.

Check her out here...

It's just a short one tonight folks... 

Have a wonderful weekend if I don't get a chance to post again.

Massive thanks to all who helped to spread the word today.

So I've signed up to National Novel Writing Month with a bit of arm twisting from a fellow author and friend. 

It's something I've always wanted to do but have never felt I can commit to. I am still not sure I'll make the 50k, but I am ready to give it my best shot. The ideas for a new manuscript have been rattling around in my head for a good while now, so I am going to use NaNo as an excuse to get them written down.

Things in Housing Elephants land are hotting up. I finished my final read through tonight. I'm hopefully getting one more person to read it before I send it off to get formatted on Monday. And then it's pretty much a wrap! 

More exciting than that though is the fact that in three sleeps time it is my cover reveal! I'm so giddy for this, mostly cause it's not me who is on show, rather my wonderful graphics person, L J Stock, who also happens to be a really talented author. 

I gave her my synopsis and she ran with it, creating a stunning set of graphics for promotion and the all important book cover. It's seriously beautiful. So stay tuned, on Friday and you will get to see the final version.

Bare Naked Words are hosting it and I got the schedule tonight... Over eighty blogs have signed up as part of this! That's a crazy amount of exposure! Really quite scary. 

So anyway, I just wanted to duck in and say hi seeing as I haven't written for a little while. I'll be back on Friday, if not before. 

Ooooh... And I have my first official review. 5* - can you believe it? You can read it on the Gooddreads page.
