Flutterby Update + A New Book Every Month

Flutterby is at 75% completion. I think it will be available on 1st January 2017. I think I will release a new book every month on the first again. Yes, that's the plan going forward. So get ready for Flutterby on 1 Jan, along with a cover reveal of the book to be released on 1 Feb. I have like six books in production. All in varying genres. Exciting stuff coming soon!

What A Kerfuffle!

Had to scramble this morning. Got the kids to school then met my eldest daughter at the Great Malvern train station. Her train had been cancelled so she almost missed her coach to London for the week. Managed to get the coach to meet us in Ledbury so I drove her out there. She's on her way to London now with her uni group. Oh man what a morning! When public transport goes wrong it really fucks things up.

Busy AF

Too busy to blog today. Sorry not sorry. Actually I am sorry. I just wrote that because it popped into my head. lol

Rest Heals!

After two weeks taking care of my sick kids while being sick myself I finally got a full night's sleep last night. It did me good. Just my whole head is sore from sinus pressure today. It's been like this for the past 5 days. Haven't been able to taste my food or smell anything for like a week. The only reason I'm enduring it is because I've lost weight. I'm doing Slimming World. My target date is 28th Feb 2017 to reach my goal weight.

But anyway, this blog is supposed to be about my books. And my new one is coming along nicely. I'm sure I'll have some writing time today, and Flutterby will be released before you know it. Yay! Right? lol

So yeah, sleep really helps heal. I feel the virus is definitely going now (touch wood). I feel I'm at 68% as compared to 10% just a few days ago. Can't wait to get all the way back up to 98% wellness! Because let's face it, no one's ever at 100%

Happy Birthday To My Daughter!

Daughter's 10th birthday today, plus I'm still flu-ridden, so no time to blog today!

Getting Better?

I think this virus is finally going, a bit.

So I got some hair dye. Well, hair bleach. I dyed my hair too black the other day. Don't know if I blogged about it. I have FluBrain. Can't think straight from one minute to the next. And I'm trying to plan a birthday party tomorrow! Ugh. It's all happening.

Anyway, I'm hoping to try and lighten my hair this weekend while the kids are away with their dad. Should I reveal that on a public blog? I don't know! Like I said my head is fuzzy. Oh well. This is my life, so this is my blog. Etc... etc...

So yeah, the plan with my hair is to brush through the lightener stuff over the black. Also, if I lighten or redden it too much, I bought some brown hair dye to go over it afterwards. I just hope it's not too dark a brown again! FFS!

This isn't going to work, is it. I just know it. Sad face.

Flu Face

A virus has damaged my sinuses and it feels like I've been punched in the nose. Can't even touch the bridge of my nose. There's tremendous pressure on my eyes too. And my upper and lower left jaw and teeth hurt. All because of sensitive infected sinuses. Along with a terrible cough.

Been inflicted with this misery for over a week now. It's beyond annoying. Painful. Insufferable.

My left cheekbone is throbbing with pressurised pain right now. At least my brain isn't sizzling anymore. That sure did hurt. My kids are sick too. I actually caught this cold from my youngest. She spread it to me, then the nine year old got infected. And it's awful for her because her birthday is this Saturday and she really needs to get better for it!

I haven't been able to get much progress on Flutterby. It will be available when it is. Soon, I hope. Like the next three weeks probably? 

Sometimes people ask me if I have a favourite book that I've read. It's such an impossible question for me, because I've read loads and I'm always reading. I do come back to a few books that I particularly loved, but then someone will mention a book I've read too and I'll be like, "oh yeah that's one of my favourites as well!"

Here's a list of some faves that I can remember with my head being fuzzy with flu...

1. Love From Both Sides by Nick Spalding. The most hilarious and romantic book ever.
2. Lamb by Christopher Moore. Quite macabre, but a brilliant piss-take adventure about Christ before his thirties.
3. All Dan Brown books apart from The Lost Symbol. Shudders at how bad that one was.

Sophie Kinsella is another of my favourite authors. Also the Harry Potter books. And the Hunger Games novels. I'm sure there's more, but the above stuck with me, and I like to read them again and again when I have time.
