While I am working on book edits for Poisoned By Blood book three I am looking forward to you guys seeing it. I had a little hurdle to jump over which was my first ever bout of writer’s block.

I know now why. I had sent the book to my publishers but I worried that I had parts that were too similar to Twisted Coven as their is a similar element and I needed to change things to ensure that the similarities remained minor and that the story itself is different. I am reworking the manuscript right now and I hope that I will be able to share the details soon.

So back to the topic. I now have a video plan for each day of the week and I have done it for the last three weeks. Here it is.

Monday: Murder Case Monday

I look at a murder case each week and use me degree and knowledge to look at it with a fresh set of eyes. Some cases may not be murder thought the prevailing theory is that they were. I have looked at Elisa Lam, Kendrick Johnson, Lisa McPherson and this week I am looking Dylan Redwine.

Tuesday: Trash Talking Tuesday

I talk about some Internet personality/celebrity that is skating of the legality or not, just committing criminal acts and call them out on it. I also look at people who scam their fan’s and so much more. I have looked at Freelee the Banana Girl, Fosey & Jake Paul and SimpyNessa15 & Tana Mongeau. This week I am looking at Vegan scary man Vegan Gaines.

Wednesday: Writers Wednesday/Where are they Wednesday

I do a writing podcast and cover various writing topics that include creating dystopian worlds and writing despite limitations of any kind. I am hoping to have some of my colleges to be on the podcast. I then have the occasional video about missing people and I use the various things I learnt at University a=to help understand the case.

Thursday: Truth Talking Thursday

I pick a topic that I feel passionate about and offer my 2 cents on it. I have tackled the following so far

Emily LeRae Smith & Social Media Stars aren’t Idol’s: Tuth Talk Thursday

The problem with Story-time channel

I also have a lot of other things that I want to go into at some point though that is something that I will share in time.

Friday: Funday Friday

I usually do something fun on a Friday to lighten up my mood and sometimes include my darling husband in the video’s. I hope to do more with him.

Weekend’s: Anything goes

Some times it’s light topic, sometimes something topical that is going on in the multiple worlds that I am involved in and other time it is a serious topic as was this last week. I talked about the recent rise in terror activities here in the UK and the topic of the rise in deaths being streamed live and highlighting Katelyn Nicole Smith as an important case. I will be looking into Katelyn Nicole Smith for a Murder Case Monday.

Anyway, that’s it for now. If you want to watch any video’s here the LINK to check it out.

Have a nice day

Manchester Bombing :(

This week has brought another terrorist attack, two months on from the attack in London, both attacks happened on the 22nd of the month. There have been excellent reactions with people helping those in need. Taxi drivers turning off their fares and giving people rides that need them, houses near by opening the door to people who need to charge the phone, contact people, catch their breath.

There was workers at the Arena that kept a calm mind and prevented further injuries and helped keep people calm. There was even a homeless man who stepped in and helped. It as an horrific and terrible thing and those that were killed and injured will forever be in my heart and I am saddened by the event.

To make it worse people are trying to make drama and make things about them which is sickening and it pisses me off. There was this guy.:—-

david 1david 2

Who was given hell for it. How can you joke about something so serious that has only just happened, these were tweeted shortly after the incident and have since been deleted.

He is a free lance writer and as a writer I find it horrifying that he joked so soon when he knew that there was fatalities.

Then there is Onision, the surge of YouTube, who managed to make the whole thing about him and he made a video about it, saying why is their such an out cry about these deaths when thousands die from cancer. Here’s he’s tweet.

blaire white tweet.

Thank you Blare for making this known, along with the Warski’s for speaking up against him. I have done a video that, surprise surprise, it was demonetized but here’s the link. Onision is the worst, the worst of the worst. Click here for the video. also as a Brit I find these tweets and Onisions video as insulting and it worries me that they can be so horrid at such as delicate time for the UK.

I gave this guy the benefit of the doubt but now I’m done.

My heart and love goes to those affected by the events in Manchester. If you see anything out of the ordinary please speak up as you could save lives. We all, all religions, have to work together to end the grip that terror groups have on us.

Stay Safe

Hi,

When I say I have been busy is an understatement. I have finished Poisoned By Blood Book and I think I’ve decided on a title. I had decided on one title but it was too similar to a book I already have out and the second choice is one that seems to be popular so I have decided on another, a third and with a little luck it won’t be too bad.

I am already part way through the edits an then off to the boss it goes. I also have some good things planned, with a little luck I’ll be able to lock in London soon, just waiting on a few things to fit in to place.

I currently have my Mum on a visit and I’m knee deep in crochet products that I’m making that are gifts.

Add to that I am working hard on my YouTube Channel, both of them.

Simi’s Crafty Corner

Yes I am a glutton for punishment and I know I’m taking on a lot but I record when I can’t sleep and write during the days, so I balance it out and don’t face myself with too much. I also go live on YouTube, YouNow and Twitch. Click for the channels and come and chat with me some time.

I do video’s about various different things and call out shadiness in all walks of like, YouTube and other areas of the Internet as well as other area’s of live, i.e government, healthcare and such. I did a video last week about a situation that Philip DeFranco, a good man with a good heart, brought to ever ones attention. I wanted nothing more than to reach into the screen and shake some sense into them. I had to talk about it, I couldn’t not. I was seeing red. Watch it here, Philips video’s are in the I card in the right hand corner as well as video’s from a few other creators.

I am not a drama channel as I couldn’t care less about some people, I tell the truth about things that affect people under age and those who don’t know better as well as telling my story when it comes to somethings I have seen and don’t agree with.

Sometimes I think people should pass a test for having a YouTube channel. I have around 5 video’s banked for while Mum’s over but I’ll still be editing the new book so I’ll be busy while she here.

Anyway that’s enough of me ranting. Click here for my books. 

Have an awesome evening

Blessed Be

Hi

So I’ve been busy with writing and building my YouTube Channel. I have been saving for my trip to London, which I hope to have a date soon, keeping fingers crossed. I have a list of book’s I want to write, video’s I want to do, stream theme’s I want to do, I hope to do one for EDS Society UK at some point this year.

I was out drinking last night at a pub watching my friends band play. He’s the drummer and he’s awesome. I’m biased as he’s my besties hubby but I still believe he’s awesome.

I hope to get some video’s up but I’ll check with them first so watch this space. I am lucky that a lot of people i have around me are creative. My husband and I are working on his books still but I’m trying to finish the two series I have going on before I start on any others.

Once I have dates and video’s I’ll share them with you. Here’s my YouTube Channel, please check it out.

Stay creative and stay you.

Simone

Week four:- is a general discussion of what’s going on on the internet, which includes what’s going on, a scum of the internet and various different bits of internet drama, etc.

I hope that my body allows me to stick to this timetable. Cross my fingers.

I am working on Poisoned by Blood Book 3 and I can’t wait to share it with you, I really am looking forward to it and will do so as soon as I can, I am busy transfering the first draft from paper to digital format. I only hope that people enjoy it as much as they did the first two.

Happy New Years,

So Christmas is over and that also means my break is over, which is something I needed. Releasing three books in one year was something I never thought I would be able to do. I really didn’t.

I’m working on book three of Poisoned By Blood and I’m excited as this one is even darker than the others and the tale gets even more complicated. I’m also working on  a squeal to Twisted Coven, so yeas, I’m a buys girl.

I am also playing some games to give me down time where my mind isn’t on books, my newest one’s are Subnautica, thanks to Markiplier, and then I found out Mass Effect 2 was free on Origin and I  am just waiting for it to finish downloading. I have multiple YouTube videos planned too, just waiting my voice to stabilize so I can do it.

I also have some awesome books planned for this year and I’m excited to share them with you.

Keep reading

Simone

Hi Guys

Today in release day for Hell Hath No Fury, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I am so happy with the book and I am so happy that my best friends daughter agreed to be on the cover of it and agreed to be my muse on this.

The basic outline is that Andrew finds the remains of a missing student that went to school with his older brother, what ensues is a roller coaster of of angst and drama as the police try and find the killer that leads Andrew to realize a few things about his life that are hiding a lot of secrets from him.

It’s dark, as most of my stuff is, with a few light moments and I am happy with this book. I am so happy. Sorry for gushing but I can’t help being excited about this.

Click here to get the book. 

Happy Tuesday

Simone

Many people become obsessed with serial killers, me included. The reason behind this varies and is dependent upon the person and their life. For this I will concentrate on my own reasons and explain how it began and how it links with my love of horror.

When it happened

In my teens I was given a book, which I still have, called infamous killers and it sparked my intrigue around killers. I read about Ten Bundy, Myra Hindley, Ian Brady, David Berkowitz and several others. I read what I could over the following few years. Once we had internet I searched furthers and bought books on killers, most of which I still own, one is a book on Jack the Ripper that included copies of the letter he sent to the police.

My love of horror made me interested in killer, I wanted to know as much as I can, I had to know what made them do what they did and I learn about people who knew or had an inclining but did nothing. I wanted to know everything I could so I could understand why they did what they did.

I was around fourteen years old when my interest was sparked and it showed no way of stopping.

Details

I have a strong stomach and things that would make others sick I am fine with and it doesn’t turn my stomach. It helped whole I was studying and I want the only one who had the stomach for crime scene pictures. The only thing that bothered me was anything that involves children and it still does.

I researched details of cases and read as much as I could. My interest was in why they did what they did, which in some cases the killers themselves knew, others they didn’t. The reasons varied, Ted Bundy blamed violent porn, and Jeffery Dahmer blamed being left alone and his parents divorce as well as alcohol. David Berkowitz blamed hallucinations and then an occult group he was a member of. Myra Hindley blamed Ian Brady, Ian Brady blamed Myra Hindley. It was worrying that no two killers claimed the same reasoning.

FBI Profilers John Douglas and Candice Delong both describe the cause as a perfect storm of biological and environmental forces with not one event being the cause for the killers to become killers.

Once the killer does their first kill they open a door they cannot close not would they stop, something described by Jeffery Dahmer and Gary Ridgeway as a growing need to feel the power of taking another’s life.

Why am I fascinated by Serial Killers

The main reasons for my interest in them is:-

  1. To understand why so I can write about them in both fiction and non-fiction.
  2. To understand why they can kill without Guilt.
  3. How the killers rationalize their killings to others.

Understanding

People want to know everything so they can protect against them and for some they want to know how the killers do it, they want to kill but do not have the stomach for it. I’m interested purely from a writer’s point of view the second reason is from a forensics point of view and how they prevent being killed.

Top 10 killers with the highest kill count

I will say this first, Dr Harold Shipman is speculated to have killed over 400 people but due to the facts that medical records of his victims were changed after death there is no way of knowing the true victim count.

  1. Luis Garavito, active in the 1990’s in Colombia, 172-300+ kill count (proven 138)
  2. Pedro Lopez, active 1969 to 1980 in Columbia, Ecuador and Peru, 300+ kill count (proven 110)
  3. Daniel Camargo, active 1974 to 1986 in Colombia and Ecuador, 150 kill count(proven 72)
  4. Pedro Rodregues Filho, active 1967 to 2003 in Brazil, 100 kill count (proven 71)
  5. Yang Xinhai, active 2000 to 2003 in China, Proven 67
  6. Andrei Chikatilo, active 1978 to 1990 in USSR, 56 Kill count (proven 53)
  7. Anatoly Onoprenko active 1989 to 1996  in USSR and Ukraine,51+ kill count (proven 52)
  8. Gary Ridgeway, active 1982 to 2000 in the USA, kill count 71-90+ (proven 49)
  9. Alexander Pichushkin, active 19982-2006 in Russia, kill count 60 (proven 48)
  10. Wang Qiang, active 1995-2003 in China, kill count 45+ (proven 45)

In conclusions

People want to know as much about serial killers whether it be from voyeuristic point of view, intrigue on their reasons, or infatuated by the killer. People do worship serial killers and there reasons vary depending on their own mind, but some reasons are unhealthy and unsettling. While I am intrigued by serial killers and their reasons for killing I am not obsessed with them and I have never wanted to marry or meet one as so many do.

Please comment below you views on this and let me know if there is anything you want me to look at.

Hello Guys,

Another post for you guys. Click here for my new YouTube Video.

Here goes.

Why are we obsessed with death

dsc_0093

For as long as we have been aware of our own existence humans have been obsessed with death. We have little knowledge of what happens when we die. Do we stop existing or go to some form of utopia? Are we aware of life after death?

As a result of this unknown and our fear we have become obsessed with the dead, some more than others. While studying for my degree I did a dissertation on the information you can gain from mummified remains compared to what you can find out from skeletal remains. I had to learn more about death including what happened and what affects if a body decomposes or mummifies. I enjoyed learning so much and I was shocked by how they live and died.

We preserve bodies, even today, from medical school cadavers, medical oddity exhibits and Dr Gunther Von Hagen’s macabre exhibitions may turn some peoples stomach it prove that humans want to learn everything it shows the internal working of the human body, a medical marvel in itself.

We have an entire industry dedicated to the preservation of human remains though it is done in order to allow people to more the dead and provide the time to organise burial of the remains the truth is that embalming sometimes lasts several years, which in murder cases can be a blessing but in others it can be harmful to others in so many ways.

Whenever you are in a car and you pass an accident a large percentage of people will look whether it be morbid curiosity or out of concern it is human nature to want to know what out end it.

Our fear of death causes us to be obsessed with controlling it, some do all they can to live for as long as they can, others chose to end their suffering if they are plagued with a chronic or terminal illness. I can’t blame either of them.

Though I am not a member of a mainstream religion, nor am I member of a coven, (I am pagan) I do believe in an afterlife, for some they are spirited into a peaceful existence, others stay here, whether it be due to not wanting to leave family, fixing something that went wrong. I have had experienced several event’s that solidify my belief in ghosts, I am a second generation Witch (Pagan) and a second generation medium. I use a scrying stone to commune with the dead and I’ve done it a handful of times.

My own studies do not cloud my belief. I learned the mechanic of death and the after effects of death. The body dies in stages and that’s what I learn’t. I used case studies, information, accidental and purposeful mummification.

We live, we die. There is no changing that, nothing, no matter how hard we try but I trust that I will have an afterlife though I could not prove this, I have my own stories and while I am intrigued by death I do not know what will happen when I die but I believe in an afterlife.

Believe what you want too, never let anyone change that. Religious or not, we all have to believe in something.

That’s it for tonight. Good night and sweet dreams.

Have an awesome Wednesday

Simone
