Let's just say the boos were true!

I wrote and posted a blog and something must have gone wrong because it says it doesn't exist! Oh dear

Had the best time at the Literally PR Media Party in Chelsea. I was so nervous because I had to give a speech but it amazingly came out good! Met some fab people and made great contacts. All night I was looking out for Bloomsbury Publishing and when I was talking to this journalist, Aleta was talking to Bloomsbury! During the 2nd round of speeches, Aleta was waving around this piece of paper, giggling like a loon and giving me these mysterious looks. I thought she was just drunk! Turns out Bloomsbury came to my table and asked for more details and she got an email address for the senior editor! Slam dunk!!!

It's so interesting that I keep bumping into HarperCollins and Bloomsbury Publishing, it feels like I get so close and yet not quite there but I have good feeling about this. Something fab is going to happen soon. During my speech, I mentioned 'Rose' and everyone loved the concept.
Check out my interview about Rose with Fashion Abecedaire 
and my interview about publishing with WES BLOG

Wireless Festival was amazing!! Pharrell was brilliant and so bloody cool. Why is he so cool? Iggy Azalea was better than last year, she really shone and the main man Kanye West...well let's just say the boos were true! He went on a 20 min rant about the fashion industry and racism and the how bad social media is (even though his wife is the Queen of social media). What he said was great but it's a festival! Ain't no-one got time for that. Plus it started to rain. When he was rapping, he was amazing. Don't know about that weird mask though.

It was my friend Kara's birthday and we went to a Cabaret night at PROUD, 1920's theme. It was so sick!! When you go in, you feel like you are in the Moulin Rouge. The female staff are walking around in corsets and underwear, which was a shock to see at first look but the entertainment was great. There was an acrobat, the host was a fab singer and hilarious and this girl did a strip tease with nipple tassells! One fell of as well. The food was great and we  were seated right next to the stage, it was such an experience. Loved it.

If you haven't read Emily Knight I AM by now - what is up with that?? Here's one review I got recently , 5* people :D

Wow! This is one of the best Fantasy I've read this year. This attention-grabbing book is truly fun. This page turner displays well-crafted characters. Indeed each chapter has its own fascinating twists and turns making me curious about what would happen. Certainly this was such a fast read and an entertaining one. Indeed this story is utterly amazing! Just wonderful! This is a must have!


Amen to that! Off to Amsterdam next week for bday, that should be a fab blog!
Here's some pics from PROUD, she was our waitress below!

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…
