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
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…
