Hip-Hop does NOT make me angry!!!

This has been a good 2013 so far for my book!!! I got my first royalty cheque, which was very exciting. Had no clue that because it's in dollars had to fill out this long form at the bank to cash it in. On the plus side, the guy at the bank who helped me is a big fantasy fan so he's gonna go buy my book. Result!

I had an interview with Female First magazine http://www.femalefirst.co.uk/books/emily-knight-i-am-279749.html which was very fun.
I got some very good reviews 4 and 5 Stars! Get in there! So hopefully that will encourage more people to buy! buy! buy! AND the reviewers have been running a give away of the book AND I got more Twitter followers.

My mission to get a 1000 likes minimum every month is working, reached 6000 likes this month so by March should get to 7000 at least. So around June, I should be on 10,000 likes minimum. Some of my friends think that 6000 is a lot of likes - not when there are billions of people in the world!
But one of the best news is I finished Emily Knight book 2!! Hooray!! I managed to get through the last few chapters during half-term so I officially finished it on Saturday 23rd February at 7.55 pm and I promised myself that if I finished it, I can treat myself to a shopping spree. Eagerly awaiting pay day now!

My book was sent to the CBBC. I thought it was to get a review, I didn't realise that it was for the drama department to adapt it. Unfortunately they passed as they felt they couldn't make her powers look real enough or something like that. It's cool because I can see it on the big screen in my head so I know it's going to be made into a movie one day.

Going to start selling Emily Knight bookmarks and postcards but this damn paypal set up is taking aaaages.

I have serious road rage. It's pretty disgraceful. My brother was convinced it was because I was listening to Hip-Hop so when I next got into the car, it had been changed to Classical music! That made me really angry, finally found Choice FM and relaxed. Hip-Hop does not make me angry!

I taught Melissa how to park a car. She's so small I didn't think she would be able to see over the wheel but she did a good job. When I asked her if she could see, she said, 'No, I was looking through the gaps in the steering wheel.' What?!!

I held a snake. I almost died.

I'm going to Wireless Festival - Jay Z, Miguel, Kendrick Lamar and the rest. AHHHHHH!!! So excited! I've never been to a festival before. Please London just be hot in Summer like a normal country.

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…

Emily Knight I AM...out June 2012

You'll be pleased to know I got through April without a breakdown, so I am of course a superhero. Thank you very much.

So as u can see by the title, my debut book will be out next month!!!! This is so exciting but has been so difficult. I've actually turned into a business woman in this process but I've learnt so much. I can't wait to show u guys my book cover by the AMAZING Giles Greenford. If u don't know, he did Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire cover. That's how I roll! And his captured Emily perfectly, like seriously he just knew what I wanted and when I saw it I thought wow that's her.
I should be getting a review from That Fantasy Blog soon so hope it's good. Need more reviews so if anyone wants a preview email info@a-bello.com and I'm starting up a school's list for my school tour, so get involved.

I really want to go shopping! I haven't shopped for months on end and I'm going crazy. I was in Topshop ironically waiting for my…

I can't breathe.

Those are the word George Floyd said when a policeman put his full weight on his neck.

I'm sure you've seen the images, the video and the words 'I can't breathe' and it makes me feel physically sick. I cried for a full day after reading his story.


This is not my usual blog post but I express myself best through words and need to get this out.



My Twitter is split in half. It's either Black Lives Matter or Hey let's talk about publishing and right now the publishing side is the least of my concerns. I was actually getting pissed off at the lack of authors, agents and publishers saying nothing about what's happening but I had to remind myself that this is the same industry that only publishes 1% of books with someone of colour as a lead. Who use the #weneeddiversebooks and don't publish or hire ethnic people. Explains everything right? I also don't need a thread on books by black authors unless it is about race. Black authors you should be reading…
