Hello there world,

Today was a good day, I was up late last night and recorded two video’s, one of which is up and live. Click her to watch the video.

I have a plan that is a rotation.

Week one:- Simone’s Writing Workshop Podcast.

Week two:- Simone’s Craft Podcast.

Week three:- Living with EDS and an invisible disability

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.

Have fun

Hi guys

 

I’ve been hard at and I am busy. With a visit from my Mum and the impending release has me finishing my work. I now have a beta reader and I love her for the help she has given me, she is awesome.

I am so excited about this, the things I have planned for this is immense and i really cant wait to show you what I am going to be making. The cover release will happen so and I know that it will be awesome as always, Rue is a genius when it come to covers and I love every single one she has done for us.

I also have some fun planned for Halloween. I’m always in a cave when writing and it sucks because I’m cut off from anything, I hate not being near my computer while the writing urge has me in it’s grips.

Six weeks until release day, six weeks, I still have to pinch myself when I see my books on out TARDIS coffee table and I really hope that I can continue to release books people want to read, I am working hard on several projects to get me into the minds of readers and I have some videos planned that will use my training and my liking of horror to take my YouTube channel into a few new directions. I really can’t wait. Just working on a few things I need to do before I can share but these next two months are going to be busy for me.

Have an awesome week

Morning Readers,

I really hope you liked all the prose I’ve been sharing lately. I have found my love of poetry and much like my writing mind it takes over. My mind never shuts down, its always on the go, its a good thing and a bad thing, especially when I’m trying to sleep.

I will be posting some prose later today, I’m working on an anthology submissions and Spilt Blood’s sequel. I love writing, it give me so much joy.

Don’t forget to check out my books #onehouseunited

Hello Guys

I know I’ve been quiet lately, I’ve been busy with edits and promotion. but I thought I’d check in and let you know whats going on.

Spilt Blood’s sequel is in the process of being edited and its coming along nicely. I’m also working on a few other projects that I can’t wait to share with you, when the time is right.

As the title of my  blog hints I am a dyslexic author and a published one. The fact that I have been published still makes me want to pinch myself. Whats even better is that, for both my published novels, I have received constructive criticism and some down right nasty reviews with nothing of feed back in it. Both have received four star reviews from NerdGIrls and they can’t wait to read more.

It is a strange thing that when you put yourself out there, regardless of the format whether it be writing, acting, youtube etc you leave your self wide open for scrutiny and there will always be, out there, people who want to do nothing more than break you down.

If I can, as a dyslexic person, have two books on sale with more to come anyone one can do anything, you just have to put the work in and stay dedicated to your craft and you will get there.

Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

Happy writing

I LOVE WRITING.

Happy writing

Hi guys,

Its been a busy month, I’ve been working on anthology submissions and promotion for Spilt Blood while working on the sequel, when my body allows it to happen. We’re battling on, I just wish this damn recession would end and things go back to some form of normal.

Writing is a job and a manner of staying sane, I can put it down and pick it up when I have good days and bad days, I just wish the good outnumbered the bad. I am lucky with having supportive friends and family as well as my publisher, she’s super understanding and doesn’t push me too hard.

So much going on including an even coming up soon where I take over a friends facebook fan page, and I really can’t wait.

I need to get as much visibility as possible.

Happy writing guys

Hello Internet

I have been so busy of late, we have organised the study and thrown away so much of our accumulated crap and organise what we were keeping, I’ve also been working on anthology submissions, causing my brain to work over time.

Also I have rekindled my love of writing poetry and it has pulled me into a few different directions and one of my anthology submissions is poetry. I’ll be sending it this next week, keep your fingers crossed.

I’m also doing some stuff of an adult nature for anthologies. The plan is that if I get into a few anthologies that it will increase my visibility with regards to my other books. I’m working on anthology submissions until may then back to Spilt Bloods sequel and a project tentatively titled A Woman Scorned where my best friends daughter modelled for the book cover.

I am also thinking of reviving a few other projests though I don’t want to give myself to much. I love writing and my brain is constantly generating ideas, too many for me to keep up with.

Happy Writing and keep smiling

Simone

Hello Readers

Hope my American readers had an good Thanksgiving. The UK has been taken over by the Black Friday bug and I tell you some of our Brits have showed up the rest of the country up with their violent pursue of unheard of pre Christmas price reductions for a mere four days. Some of the video’s of YouTube are sickening,

Click Here to see the video of shoppers in Tesco arguing over price reduced TV’s.

So I am currently working on several projects, I am trying to meld my Loom Band obsession with book related merchandise and I am also working on Spilt Bloods sequel, Dirty Little Secret.

I will reveal something, all books that are a part of the Poisoned By Blood have at least one addition chapter, or rather they are shorts of other peoples point of view on given events. Book one is the only exception as the short is told from the main character’s point of view of an important event that happened before the beginning of the first book but it is mentioned and discussed within it.

I will post a little teaser during the week.

I’ll leave you with those teasers but stay tuned for more.

Happy Writing

Hello Guys

Hope all is well. I have been working hard on Spilt blood and the stuff for the Halloween event hosted by my fellow authors at Vamptasy and CHBB. I am enjoying working hard and I’m promoting Shattered Souls in online groups with a hand full of posters. Here’s a taste.

I love them, I’ve done a few for the release of Spilt Blood but will release them on Halloween Night along with a little something extra. I have been looking forward to this release, I love the book and while there is a love story within it there is a lot of scary an paranormal things within and as the series continues things get sexier and darker.

I am also very humbled to have you all reading this and interacting. I’m hoping to do a blog only give away when the book release, I’m not sure of the give away yet but I’m looking forward to you all reading my new release.

Stay tuned for more teaser

Happy Writing

Hello and welcome to Madness Monday

Well, what a difference a weekend makes. Over the last four day’s several things have happened. First was some sound advice for a fellow author into how to make the most of my brand, which is me and what to do.

So what have I done? I have created a logo for myself, and created a banner and put out feelers for some head shots and once response to my searched have given me cause some excitement, they also work as a journalist for the local paper here in York and he’s mentioned about the possibility of doing a piece on me. I also contacted my university to update my information and tell them a few minor things and they’ve sent me some stuff to full in that may end up on either the course booklets, promotional material and the website.

Also I have been introduced to picmonkey and I’ve been getting pictures ready for the Halloween even. I am thinking about sharing my pictures on here. Most are spooky and I have a few I love more than others.

Comment below on what you want to see.
