Guess who I saw walking down Covent Garden?? Only Ben flipping Affleck!

Birthday month is coming to an end *crying* although I still have one last present on Monday. Yay!
I had the best birthday and it was full of so many surprises. I saw Finding Dory, which gave me sad and happy tears. One minute I was busting up and the next I'm breaking down and crying,'Where's her family???' I got free drinks at Byron, free cake at Brew Box, then dinner at Absurd Bird. It's the best food I've ever had in London. The next day, I had a party and got a surprise cake and gifts and it was just so overwhelming.  Had lunch at Blue's Kitchen, went Bournemouth Beach (and caught loads of Pokemon OMG). We played volleyball and we were pretty awful. Like really awful but it was a gorgeous day, got a crazy tan and put my big toe in the water.

I've had a blast of a birthday and have been surrounded by the best people.

Roberta has officially ended. This is my third pop up story and I'm so proud that I wrote it. It's funny because I was looking at the views for the stories and Lox is still the most popular one. I guess the Knight's will always come out on top. 
I've been writing book 3, which so far is going well and I have been talking to a publishers about book 2. I should be getting a publication time line sent to me today and hopefully it all goes well with them, so book 2 can actually come out! Get in! They sent me a book of the size they want the Emily Knight to be and I love it. I actually hate the book size of Emily Knight I AM with a passion. I remember when I first saw it, I called Frances in tears and went to her house and said, 'It looks like a text book!' looool, so getting a new book size is my dream. 
I'm getting book 1 cover art sorted out, I think next week and book 2 proofreading in a few weeks so we are back on track people! I also have a Birthday Giveaway ending tomorrow. You can enter HERE and you can possibly win an awesome prize.

Speaking of prizes, the little Big Book Competition went so well. I have had loads of entries from young people aged 5 all the way to 16! I love that there are young writers out there, sharing their gifts with me. Excited to sit down and read through them.

I've surprised myself but I have an idea for an adult book! I know! Who would have thought it. This now takes my book ideas up to five and I want at least two books out before I turn 30. 


Guess who I saw walking down Covent Garden?? Only Ben flipping Affleck! We came out of teaching in Pineapple Dance Studios and I saw this guy, walking with a little blonde girl. I said to Zarah, 'Isn't that Ben Affleck?'
Zarah: 'What? Where? No! Wait...maybe, I don't know.'
Me: 'Swear down that's Ben Affleck. Omg follow him.'
So we followed him and then he stopped to look at something and I'm pushing Zarah towards him. 
Me: 'Talk to him.'
Zarah: 'nkdtde2p4kwfm'
Me *rolls eyes*
I go up to him and I ask if he is Ben Affleck and he says yes. Duh! We have a chat with his daughter who looks just like Jennifer Garner. Then we get a picture and it was weird because he had zero security around. I don't think anyone had even noticed him. Anneliese and Anna are all trying not to be in the picture. 
Me: 'Come on. You're not going to see him tomorrow!'
We waved them off and then we saw them being stopped further up the road and this girl was sprinting with her mobile phone towards them. Oops. The oddest thing was that I put the pic on my Instagram and I know Ben Affleck is a proper A lister but I didn't realise there were Instagram sites dedicated to him and I was being tagged and thanked in so many posts. I was like wtf!

Helen and I launched our online course!!! I honestly can't believe that we have done it, I mean the work isn't over yet by a long shot but the fact we have a course out there is such an achievement. And we have our first ever summer sale, so our full day of courses which is usually £65 is now £35. I swear down we spoil these authors. I wish something like The Author School was around, when I was doing Emily. It would have saved me a lot of money and mistakes. The sale ends TOMORROW so have a look and I'm sure there will be something that you will want  - SUMMER SALE

Watched the VMAS. Did you hear Kanye say he is his own role model?? Lool I can't with him.

Drakes speech to Rihanna. So cute.

Can't believe I'm starting up my Saturday school Co-Star Arts again. I've had so many requests to bring it back. Round two here we go! 

Got my battle cards done!! All ready for the Triskele Lit festival in a few weeks. I am in love with them and I am selling them for £1 via a-bello.com

I'm having Game of Thrones withdrawal. That's normal right?

Went to Notting Hill Carnival with my sister and we had a great time. The floats were so amazing! There was one and the lady was at the very top, fully naked and painted in the colours of some flag. Brave is the word.

'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
