My book cover is now out! Isn't she pretty?

Sooo how are we all doing? I legit don't even know what week of lockdown this is, I just know that I am over it. I didn't even realise that I just miss working in different environments that is not my house. I'm pretty good at self-motivating myself but for the past few days I've just had this what is the point attitude. The problem is I run quite a few companies so as much as I want to live in lazy town I can't!

The good news is the Government have issued a small companies loan that we should be able to get. That will be a massive help seeing as bookshops are still closed. I feel so bad for those who have books that had to be pushed back or published via ebook first. It's not ideal but I love when people still push on ahead. And we've come out of the peak! Hopefully everyone can be that little bit more patient so we don't get a second peak.

My book cover is now out! Isn't she pretty? I just wanted pure fire and I got it! Ale Artigas is my amazing illustrator did such an amazing job and in September I will have book 3 out. Madness! I also have a book trailer created by Luisa Martinez Negret and Andrew Coleman and I love it. You can watch it here in all of it's glory  Make sure you use the hashtag #EK3

Now what you guys can do is pre-order the book! And hopefully you will love it as much as I do.

The Author School online course is now live! We have video, pdf's to download and one-to-ones with Helen and I. There's three tiers from £5, £10 and £20 that you pay monthly or you can cancel (hopefully not). Have a look and see if we have something here for you! And it's super affordable for all writers! The Author School 

I haven't watched as much Netflix as I thought I would. Why am I more busy than before is a mystery? 

I started a book review blog! I did my first review on And The Stars Were Burning Brightly by Danielle Jawando and you can read my review here. You may be wondering err why are you doing a blog? Well I have books from summer that I haven't read and I figured if I do a blog because I need content I will read quicker. Fingers crossed!

I did a story time a few weeks ago over on my Facebook author page. I read from the Prologue to Chapter 2 of Emily Knight I am...Awakened and guys I hit over 5,000 views! I said to myself before I started I hope 100 people watch it. Why do I do myself like that? I need to start having more confidence in what I bring to the homeschooling parents!

I went to Tesco today and it was raining so there was no cue. This man literally stood right next to me. So I said, “Can you move back?”
He started yelling, “Why do I need to move back. I got tested yesterday and I'm fine.” Then he started singing very loudly, “Everyone stay from me!” 
I very lovingly said, “Can you just shut up?”

...came right to my face so that I went cross eyed and screamed, “YOU ARE SO CUTE!”

I was so excited for January to be over. All that darkness and gloom and right now in London, it's snowing. Yes full on snow at the end of February. What kind of foolishness? Then it had the cheek to be really sunny AND STILL SNOW! I really can't with this country.  I started my World Book Day school tour today and was legit caught in a blizzard. Was so happy when my afternoon class was cancelled, was way too cold.

The Originals launches tomorrow!! I am always amazed when I am able to get a book done but to get a book done with 27 stories written by kids—the Lord gave me strength. The books  arrived and look sick! All the kids and parents are excited, I'm excited, I'm sure you're excited or if you're not get excited cause The Originals is coming!!!

I got an email from The London Book Fair about the Trailblazer Awards 2018. Never heard of it but was open to anyone under 30. I started to write the submission but I can't boast about myself so I asked Helen to …

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…

The Birthday Blog

Hey all! I know it's been ages since I posted but so many things were happening, I figured to wait until August was over and say it all in one go.

First of it was my bday. Holla! I turned 26 and went to Amsterdam with my friend, Melissa. We decided to try a cruise ship. I was a bit concerned if we would like it, so we took the deal that wasn't as long but we had so much fun! The food was great, the cinema - watched Maleficent, Rise of the Planet of The Apes and The Fault In Our Stars, we drank in the sky bar. The sleeping arrangements were interesting lool. When I went to look at prices, the best rooms were still available but when I actually booked, we had the basic. It was pretty hilarious walking in and seeing it for the first time! But we made it work and when you sleep you can feel the waves underneath. The first night, Mel and I were like 'what the hell?' It took us a good while to get used to it. On my actual birthday, Melissa had put balloons and streamers around…
