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.

'You want a bubble butt and you don't want to work hard?'

I know my weekly posts aren't exactly going to plan but I think you guys should allow me. I am doing better than once a month right?

The Author School Day was incredible! It's such a weird process because Helen and I are always stressed out and then the day runs smoothly. The speakers were fantastic! The authors were chatty and asked loads of questions. I finally got to meet Katherine Webber author of Wing Jones. She gave me such a great quote for my Emily book and is so sweet in person. We saw each other and was like 'Selfie!'  Honestly, I just love The Author School and now we are planning our London Book Fair one and tickets are already on sale. Now we are doing a different ticketing scheme from tickets selling from £50 all the way to £70, so if you book quick you can get some really cheap tickets but if you leave it to the last minute, you will grab an expensive one. So chuffed that Lit agent Clare Wallace will be back to do a full class and do one-to-ones!! Book

We really wanted to laugh but didn't want to bring too much Hackney and Peckham vibes

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!

I seriously can't believe we are here already. I remember last Christmas like it happened a few months ago. I have already changed my food mentality. Had pizza for breakfast and cake for lunch and I worked out all week for the privilege.

So this is my second to last post of the year. I know guys, sad times but I think my 2018 posts are going to be even better than this year. God willing great and hilarious things continue to happen that I can share with you all.

I had my mini's do a dance performance to O Holy Night for Christmas and I had one of the best ideas I've had all year! I wanted Shiloh, who is about 10 months, to be dressed as an angel and to be sitting in the middle, while the little ones dance around her. See her mum got my vision but some people (Anneliese) didn't and guess what? It worked perfectly! My mini's were super cute and then you had Shi sitting on this little white seat swinging her fat little legs with wings on. Result…

2017 - WE MADE IT!!

Well we made it to another year! Thank God! The amount of natural disasters, terror attacks, we really need to be thankful that we made it.
This has been an awesome year. I truly feel like 2017 set the foundations for my life. Existing things were brought up to another level and for 2018, it's just going to flourish. I have the best feeling about next year. I can't explain it but I know it's going to be one to remember (in a good way)
It's so funny because at the beginning of the year I said I wanted to be single and I have dated more guys this year than I ever have! A lot of frogs (no surprise) but I did meet a special American who has set the bar moving forward. I couldn't even go back to these waste boys even if I tried. So for 2018, ladies don't drop your crown especially for no frog.




Here's my highlights of this year
