I'm Back In The Game People!

We lost another great person. Maya Angelou. Her words will forever live on and continue to inspire people. It's going to be so awesome seeing who God raises up to be the greats of this generation.

Ever feel like you are being pulled in a million different directions? That's where I am right now but it's a good place to be in as long as I can manage it better. I was reading over my past blogs and it's so interesting to see how far I've come. I started this blog as a way to gain confidence in my writing before I released a book and I'm so glad I carried it on as I can see my growth. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my blogs.

So I have had the most epic idea for Emily. See right now I'm waiting on the phone call that tells me I have a publishing deal and the first book is already out in the world, so I've been thinking about what can I do in the mean time to still engage with my readers, write but not have to self-publish a book. I am no good at doing nothing. Then the idea hit me. I've shared it with a few people and they said it was great. So watch out for another blog called Emily Knight Warriors, coming out in a few months. Trust me you will want to read this!

I'm going to a Media party in a few weeks for Literally PR. They have been so good to me and I am so excited to meet journalists and other authors and talk to them about my brand new concept. I have changed my potential outfit about 3 times, I know such a girl. I've been working out hard too. I want to look good at this party, you never know ;) I don't mean guys by the way, I mean potential press!!

Been talking to a fellow Author and PR. It's so great how when you feel lost, out of no-where people come around you and inspire and encourage you. I'm back in the game people!

Been trying to book a holiday for my birthday. What happened to the days when I went away every year? I know what happened. My ears. I get excruciating pain sometimes in my ears when I fly. It all depends on the cabin pressure of the flight. Sometimes I don't feel a thing, sometimes I feel it a bit but then I'm good but other times - my goodness! Since New York, my ears haven't been the same. I went to an ear doctor and they said I have a dysfunctional something. They did give me something to try but I am yet to buy it. So I have this weird fear about flying so I wanted to go somewhere where I can take the Eurostar. Then I realised I haven't really seen Europe so it's a great idea. So Melissa and I planned to go to Amsterdam but then Google said it's rainy and I thought screw that I already live in London. Then Melissa said Barcelona, but I've already been. Then someone recommended a cruise! Found a great deal to Santander (Spain) but the dates are a bit longer than we wanted, plus the bedroom situation. Let's just say it resembles a prison cell. I found another deal to Calais but got to see what there is to do there.
So we are back to square one.

'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
