Holiday time for me!!

So I've dragged myself out of bed this morning to go to my usual place of work which doesn't particularly fill me with joy, but at least it will be all over at 12.30pm and then I don't have to return until a week Monday!!
I have such plans for the week too...shopping, putting up the Christmas tree!
Yes I know that the 1st December is a little early to put the tree up but I don't care - I love Christmas - it's the only shining light in an otherwise very dark time of the year! I'm not a winter person...
So - have a great day and I'll be back soon with another load of rubbish to tell you!

Time to write some more...

So - here's the thing - I've got the next two days off and I really want to get some writing done on the Chosen One.
I've been reading through what I've written so far and I'm reasonably pleased with it, but it has lots of gaps and I've not really devoted enough time to it for it to be as good as it could be.
That is about to be remedied! (Have a spelt that right????)
I'm going to get up in the morning, take the girls to school and then I'm writing and writing and writing some more!
Still haven't quite come down from seeing Breaking Dawn on Sunday...it really was superb (if you're a fan of course - it might just come across as the most bizarre thing you've ever seen if you're not...) and I loved every romantic slushy second of it!
Can't wait for the next episode this time next year...
Anyway the Chosen One is a calling me so I'll say tata and will write again tomorrow! Have a great evening xx

Best FilmYet...

OMG That was brilliant!
In my humble opinion that was the best one of the saga so far - so can't wait until the final instalment.
A little tip for anyone going soon to see it - don't get up just because the credits start to roll -IT ISN'T FINISHED!!!! There's about another two or three minutes of the Volturi. Wait until the cinema lights come up before you move!!!!
And both Edward and Jacob are at their best in this move - I am firmly team Edward and always have been but honestly - this movie makes it a close call...
Anyway, watched The Holiday last night - it's getting to that time of year where I get all my Christmas Movies out of the back of the cupboard and watch them...I leave Love Actually until Christmas Eve because it's my all time Christmas Fave! Might put Home Alone on this afternoon....

The Day has finally arrived....

Wooo to the Hoooo!
Breaking Dawn day!
I couldn't sleep properly last night being so excited for this movie!
I totally love this saga - I mean, it's no Harry Potter saga but I still think it's ace anyway.
And it doesn't hurt having such a good looking cast either...
Do you ever feel like you wish you'd only just discovered something - I remember reading these books for the very first time a couple years back and I just found that I couldn't put them down and I really had to just pick up the next one immediately. I have to admit I get like this with most books I read, but a few stand out from the rest - Harry Potter (obviously) and the Twilight Saga are up there on their own and the feeling you get when you read it for the first time ever - well, it's just magical...
Have a great day - I most definitely will!

Bradley's Bad Decision

It's out there!
Have just published Bradley's Bad Decision.
It doesn't get through immediately to places like Barnes and Noble or Kobo or Apple straight away, but you can get it immediately from Smashwords.com directly.
Also if you use code QD23C at the checkout you can get 50% off the purchase price until 31st January 2012.
I'm working on the next one at the moment and will also get back to The Chosen One and Three Wishes this week.
Hope you enjoy Bradley!

Only hours to go....

I'm off the the Showcase Cinema tomorrow morning with my lovely girls to see Breaking Dawn and I can't wait!!!!
The trailers are fab and the CD has been playing in the car all week!
I really love that Bruno Mars song - it's so beautiful.
Have had a lovely day today. I wasn't working so we had a lovely wander around Wollaton Park - saw some Fallow Deer and the usual Red Deer, Squirrels, Swans, Canadian Geese, Carrion Crows (by the 100!) Magpies, Terns, Gulls and loads of Mallards. It was sunny and bright and a perfect Autumnal day.
And this afternoon we've been shopping in Derby.
Plans for this evening...well, what else but X Factor!!
Whatever your plans are - have a great evening!

It's finished!!!!!

Bradley's Bad Decision is finished!
I've just got to get the front cover designed now and it will be ready to go!
I'm really happy with this one - it's not quite as fluffy and happy ever after as the others - Bradley really has messed up and he may or may not be able to make things right this time...
Hope you love it - I do!
Laters xx

Bradley's Bad Decision

I have the day off today and I'm really hoping to get this one finished. It's gone really well this week and I've been tapping away every evening and every other given opportunity!
Because it's a series, I've also done quite a few chapters of the following one - so I'm quite pleased with the progress of that one too!
I've obviously got to create a front cover for this one and then the editing begins - but with a bit of luck and a lot of work I should be able to get this one out for the end of November.
I promise to get back to the Chosen One soon...I've kind of lost my mojo on that one for now...
As I'm writing, Bella my lovely little cat is snuggled up on the sofa next to me - she wasn't very well last week and had to have anti-biotics from the vet :(
She's a good girl though and took the tablets without any fuss or bother (she's very greedy - maybe that's the key to success!) and a took them out of our hands!
She's all better now and back to her purry self!

I'm a celebrity....

OMG it's that time of year again when all the c listers crawl out of the woodwork in the vain hope of kickstarting/re-starting their failing careers. Douggie from Mcfly what are you doing???
And some of them I swear I have never heard of!!!
Gotta say though I love Anthony Cotton-he plays himself on coronation street doesn't he?!
Anyways no doubt I'll get totally sucked into this years shows too...bring it on!

X Factor revisited....

I tried to fight it...but I gave in and I started to watch X Factor!!!
Then my husband and daughters came home and we decided to watch a movie instead!
So I have no idea who did well and who didn't but at least Frankie's no longer in the line-up! Phew!
I'll be watching tonight though - I prefer Sunday's show.
Still writing Bradley at the moment - it's going very well.
Back soon!

Bradley's Bad Decision....

Now I know that I really should be working on the Chosen One and Three Wishes, since I started both of these a looooong time ago now - but I've kind of fallen in love with Bradley's Bad Decision and I just want to write this one instead!
It's coming along nicely too - I've done around 15000 words and plan for it to be around 30000 - it depends how much I put in this one and how much will go in the next one.
The next one is all planned out in my head but I can't for the life of me think of a title and I can't think of a decent name for the main lead character either - idea's anyone?
Anyway my luck is clearly not going brilliantly this week and I find myself once again called into work - on a Saturday too - I ask you! So having checked the time I guess I should start the lengthy task of finding my shoes out of the understairs cupboard (gulp!) and try to get there on time - see ya!
Have a great weekend everybody and I'll catch up soon xxx

Dull, dull day.....there's only one thing for it - Harry Potter!

For me there is nothing worse than a really overcast cloudy day. Everything just looks grey.
I love the summer when everything is bright and lovely and warm.
Today is the total opposite - dark, cloudy, miserable  - and I had to go to work!!
I'm making myself feel better now with a lovely cup of coffee, a couple of chocolate biscuits and Harry Potter on the DVD!
Absolute Bliss!

Twilight Saga -Breaking Dawn

I'm just catching up on the first three Twilight Movies in preparation for the upcoming new movie - can't wait!
I'm near the end of the first one and Bella's just walked out on her Dad - sob!
I've gotta say - Edward is totally at his best in this one - looks adorable - I don't know what they did with the make up in the second film but he really does look his age - as in 109!
Still love it though - brilliant saga!

I may have been hasty...

Excellent news today!
Frankie has been kicked out of X Factor! Woo hoo!!
I couldn't imagine a better outcome - I mean let's face it - he was utter rubbish.
So...I might just watch this weekend after all...of course it all depends on what else might be on - and I still think Gary sold himself down the river supporting such a weak act in the first place.
Jeez - I'm at it again - someone fetch me a soap box!!!!

Monday, 7 November 2011

That's the last time I watch X Factor....

Can you believe the result???? Is it just me who thinks it was a total travesty?
I cannot for the life of me believe that the general public would actually vote to keep that Frankie Coccoza in the competition and then for The Risk and Johnny to go out, well, what can I say except FIX!!!!
Anyway, I shall stop stressing about it, I shall keep my thoughts about Gary Barlow being a sell out to myself (see what I did there!!?!!) and I shall move on with dignity....
Stan, New Beginnings update.
I have a couple of days off this week and I shall definitely get to grips with editing and checking for errors etc and this will be published by the end of the month - I faithfully promise.
Have a great week and I shall update you again during the week xx

Shopping....

It's bonfire night tonight in old Blighty which means that there will be fireworks galore and that old nostalgic smell in the air from my yoof!
No one seems to have a bonfire any more except for 5th November when Political Correctness seems to disappear for the night!
So we are off to Markeaton Park for their annual display (assuming of course that the weather behaves itself - if it's throwing it down with rain then I suspect it'll be a hot date with Gary Barlow over on the X Factor instead!)
But until darkness falls we have the whole day to ourselves to go shopping...my long suffering husband looks so thrilled...not!
I'm after Christmas pressies for the girls so they are staying home (like a pair of Cinderella's they'll be...I have a list as long as my arm of household chores I've been saving for just such an occasion! heh heh heh!)
So I shall say cheerio for now and I'll write again soon - Have a great weekend, whatever you're doing have lots of fun!

Stan, New Beginnings

Just an update on the above. I've very almost finished it - just a couple of loose ends to tie up and then the checking begins.
I'm very happy with the way things turn out - or at least I think I am - on checking it, I might decide to kill off a couple of baddies instead of incarcerating them! Who knows -depends on my mood at the time!
Anyway, having a coffee break at the moment whilst looking for my glasses - I've been working on the book all morning and now I have a headache - I really should wear them while I'm writing!
On a personal level, I'm absolutely sick of being stuck indoors today - but only because I've got to - I'm waiting on a delivery and it always makes me feel like I'm a prisoner in my own home!
I really shouldn't keep ordering stuff online.... :)
Have a great day, great week and a great weekend and I'll update you as soon as Stan is all done and ready to purchase.
