I went to The London Book Fair 2015. Now, I haven't been to LBF for I think 2 years so I wasn't really looking forward to it because the last time I went I just found everyone so rude but this year was amazing!! I had the best time.The first thing I saw was Harper Collins taking over half the fair. I had such a strong desire to go over there and ask them why no-one has said yes or no to my book, but somehow I was able to control myself. Next, I saw The Mad Hatters Tea Party. Who could not be happy after seeing all this cake?
But the best part was....I was offered a publishing deal!!!! I know right. After how long? Jumping around like a loon! I haven't shut down social media with this news yet because I need to see a contract but it is still something I am excited about. Well, technically I was offered two but one was for adult fiction and I said that's just not me. It is the craziest story but all will be revealed soon.
I met reps from Trafford and was talking to them about Emily. Then the guy went on about agents and how hard it is to get one and no-one has one and his face when I said, “I do.”
I wish I took a picture.
I have had about 2 weeks of full out good luck. You know when everything just seems to be working in your favour? I became manager of The Movement Factory, I got a pay rise in one of my dance jobs, I got offered a publishing deal. Shouldn't life always be this good?
It was my Dad's birthday yesterday, which I only remembered about in the morning. He honestly is one of the funniest people that I know. He asked me where his present was so I just gave him a hug.
On a side note, why is it now fab to have big lips based on a girl who paid for hers? That's not weird at all. I have big lips and as a kid, I used to hate them so it's just interesting now how certain assets become popular. But is it only popular because certain celebrities have said so?
I'm not really a race kind of girl but the whole thing in America with policemen shooting black kids is just out of control. I watched this Scandal episode based on that and to know that for some people, this is their reality is so upsetting. A friend said to me that she feels a lot of people these days are taking on 'black culture' but when it comes to these type of issues, they have nothing to say. Also, characteristics that 'make' black people, such as the big lips, the big bum are now popular but is it because of white people who are trying to embrace that?
Obsessed with Big Seans album. He has that kind of voice you would like to hear everyday.
Empire. If you don't know you need to know.
