Jon Snow's bum is everything great in the world

Check me out with my weekly post :)

Let me not get cocky before I go back to blogging monthly

So I get Emily Knight I am...Awakened NEXT WEEK!!! I cannot wait to hold it. I can't lie I'm a bit nervous to give it to reviewers. I feel like the first book got so many good reviews and it was such a blessing, so I hope they don't read book 2 and think what is this??

Men. I don't get them. I swear at 29 I still don't understand them. I still don't know who are the ones you should invest your time in, who are playing games. I legit get a headache when I think about them. The experiences that I have had, my friends have had could fill a billion page novel. I do wonder what was God thinking with this man/woman thing. I get pregnancy and all that but man, they are so exhausting. Even as I write this, I have a headache and I'm tired. Then I was talking to my friend about relationships and to be fair, my mindset can be quite masculine, so we were talking about a situation and she just snapped and said, “Are you even a chick though? No girl thinks like this!” Goodness lol

My parents celebrated 35 years of marriage! My cuties. True marriage goals.

I went flat hunting the other day. Well studio flat hunting. I don't know why I was looking at studio flats. Someone I used to be close with, used to say that the studio flats were so cool, so I think that's why it was in my head. I basically was shown a space that was smaller than my room and for the great price of a grand a month.
I came in and said, “Oh, is this it?”
The estate agent attempted to tell me that this was one of the biggest studio flats he had. I looked at him like you're really proud of this?
I sarcastically asked, “Do they take pets?”
The estate agent (very seriously). “No, the landlord is very strict on that. Absolutely no pets.”
I looked at him like he was mad (which he is) and said, “Of course he is! My cat would probably kill himself. I'd get depression living in this box.”
As you can tell, I didn't put an offer in.

Teyanna Taylor. My new obsession.

I went into my work account and there was an email from someone from Twitter. So I opened it up and there were all these pics of this man, you know selfies and stuff and then it went downstairs, if you get my drift and I was like 'oh my gosh!' Then I thought - maybe one of the girls know him? And it was for them! Lol but I don't think it was. The girls were completely in shock and Leanne even said, “We have to call the police!” I couldn't stop laughing.

I didn't know why there were so many programmes about Princess Diana, so I asked my mum and she kinda gave me this weird look and said, “Were you alive when Princess Diana was?”
I said, “Mum! If she died in 1997 and I was born in 1988...”
Mum then goes. “Yeah I know but I just don't remember you being alive when she was.”
What is she talking about?

Did you watch the VMA's? Oh Lord, what was Lorde doing? Whoever authorised her to do that stupid dance, which she did not dance well should be fired. Absolutely loved Pink's speech about beauty!

Was meant to go Carnival but I fell asleep and by the time I woke it was pointless so I went for a walk in the park with Ebru and went to McDonalds drive in. Living the dream!

This whole KKK thing is the oddest thing ever. You have one life and chose to use it for hate. Like you were literally born to be hateful to people! How sad is that? I was watching the news cause they were interviewing one of the KKK leaders and he said, “Black people have a right to be black.” I mean no shit!

The Youth Take Over Show was AMAZING!!!!! Everyone that came loved it and the premiere of Speak Ur Truth went down so well. You have to go on @relentlessyouthldn Instagram to see clips of the dances and here is the link to part 1, Episode 1 of Speak Ur Truth - so funny

Game of Thrones Finale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my flipping word. I loved it! Finally Sansa! I was literally thinking someone kill her today. Jon Snow's bum is everything great in the world. I want to be Arya Stark. She is so savage.

Now planning the book launch party. I know what I want to do but I'm not going to lie, the idea of doing it is so exhausting to my soul. This also closes TOMORROW!! Make sure you enter!

Pray for Houston.

And she points at this huge wall with MY FACE ON IT!

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…
