My amazing bday weekend!!! YAY!!!

Sorry, it has been a while but I was inspired to write this blog because of my great bday! Went with Chelsea (fellow blogger) to Alton Towers to celebrate my 23rd and it was BRILLIANT!!! Went on all the greats - Air, Nemesis, Rita, Thirteen. This one was the shocker because we just had this little bar over our laps so I assumed it wouldn't be anything great. Plus, Chelsea pointed out that we actually couldn't see the ride because it was hidden behind Rita. So the ride starts and I think ok, then it goes up and drops down this steep drop. The type of drops that gets your stomach in your throat. Then we went through these double doors and we were in complete darkness facing a knight in armour before the ride just dropped down a level and then we went backwards in the dark. I was screaming “Get me off!”
Had to get a pic of Rita because our faces when that ride shot off was classic.
I avoided Oblivion because I believe that ride is the Devil.
If you find yourselves in Alton Towers, avoid Hex. I know it looks like some cool haunted house but DON'T GO IN THERE! It's the most pointless, confusing things I have ever witnessed.

I got some very cool presents. Lots of gorgeous notebooks for my equally gorgeous stories, the sexiest trainers, Beyonce's new album, money - overall very impressed with my presents! Oh and alot of cake. They're all trying to get me fat.

Had the best turn out to my dinner at The Diner. So thankful to those who came. Had four people cancel cause of the stupid riots and four people who didn't feel the need to explain their absence but had twelve great people come and complete my weekend.

Did Dancers Delight with Myself and was one of the best performances I have ever done. Was so much fun!! And apparently the set was really sexy which was news to us. One dancer said I was really sexy on stage and another said the set was like Viagra!!!

MYSELF unfortunately didn't get into the next round at Vegas but thank you to everyone who supported and helped raise money. UK still brought the championship home so good on you UK.

Finished my dance story! Yay! So that's book 2 out the way. Got to do my synopsis and query letter then I can start sending out. Got four different people reading my fantasy book so hopefully feed back will be nice and not “You're so crap! Stay in retail!”

London riots. All I can say to those looters is you will get yours.

I
have finally realised at the age of 29 that just being myself is the way forward in life. Not like I thought I had to be someone else but I guess I wasn't sure whether to be my authentic self. I am loud, funny and opinionated and in an industry like publishing, sometimes I feel like I have to tone it down but since winning Trailblazers and being invited to so many events and getting the best opportunities, I realised that my work and my personality is what people are taking a shine too.

The biggest lesson I've learnt? I thought I knew what being busy meant...until I started a publishing house.

Being at The London Book Fair as a speaker and an exhibitor - both for the first time - was amazing. I felt so valued. I felt what I had to say and how I thought was important. We had back to back meetings and our main goal was to find a colour printing company for Hashtag, which we did. But what was so fascinating is companies we had approached as we were setting up Hashtag, who were …

England were not ready for that level of sass.

In less than a month I will be 30 years old. Oh gosh.  On the plus side I am having a Wakanda themed bash so that should be fun. My only worry is my outfit is being made for me and have been working out more so I'm just hoping the fit is still okay. I am trying to be more positive about turning 30. I think I ain't done too bad in life and it can only get better right? Still waiting for my McMansion but hopefully that comes as soon as 7am strikes on the 6th August. Hey if you don't ask, you don't get!

Loving this beautiful weather! I'm sitting in my garden writing this blog and thinking why have I not done that before? I ordered some garden furniture of eBay and then an extra chair from Ikea. Then eBay tells me that the seller that I brought the garden furniture from may or may not be legit. What?! But the latest delivery is 10th July so I have to wait to see if it comes. So now I'm sitting outside with my 1 Ikea chair minus the table and umbrella. I just can&#…

I swear when I wrote Drake, I literally heard Soulja Boy's voice saying, “DRAAAAAAKKKE!”

If you are reading this that means that you survived January! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Isn't it just the worst month? It's dark, cold, everyone is broke and it drags on for years. Even those born in January are annoyed because no-one can celebrate with them. So glad it's over!

I started 2019 with visuals from Chocolate City Comics. I have wanted to work with them for about 2 years. They are so sick and I think I sent a DM on Instagram (which they ignored) but a few months ago I spoke to them on Twitter, they checked me out and wanted to work with me. Initially I just wanted to get some original content for the Emily Knight books but they knew that I was talking to production companies, and they know pretty much all the best people in film! What a coincidence! They spoke to a very popular actor, who I can't say at this stage, but it's someone that I always wanted to play Lox Knight. He really liked the Emily concept and wants to meet with me once I have my pitch ready! T…
