Event News

Howdy guys, just running through with an announcement.

On October 7th 2017, Hourglass Events is bring The Darker Side of Fiction author signing to Peterborough, UK.

And I’m proud and very excited to announce that I’ve signed up as one of the attending authors.

giphy

They even announced me on their site!

My first multi-author signing!

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t crapping my pants a whole big lot little. I mean, I’m by no means a people person. Hate crowds. Clam up around strangers.

So this is a pretty big step for me–both as an author AND as a person. Like, a MAHOOSIVE step. GARGANTUAN! A FREAKING T-REX of a step!

And I freaking signed up for THIS! lmao.

So, if you’re in Peterborough on October 7th 2017, and you just happen to be attending The Darker Side of Fiction, don’t be scared. My lack of social skills ain’t contagious, even if it might look that way. 😉

And if you live in the UK and want to know more about the event, you can join #TheDarkerSideofFiction where they keep everyone updated. ☺

Psst, the tickets go on sale in October. Just saying. 😉

Cheers for reading. ♥

*Weekly Check-in

Welcome to my weekly check-in where I post what I’ve been up to this past week.

Did I meet my writing target?

 

Well …

I’ve barely written a word in the past couple of weeks, as I currently have my MIL staying with me, and she shares my work space during the day, and likes to randomly talk to me, or if watching TV and laughs out loud at something, expects me to have paid attention so I can join in …. So, I’ve had to forego this for a few weeks until I get my space back and can focus a little better. So it might even be a couple more weeks, almost, before I can fully knuckle down once more.

Sucks a little, but at least I’m getting some family time with her.

As always, if you want to find out exactly what I’m writing, be sure to add Cornered to your Goodreads tbr.

And my Jenna Lyn Field target?

 

Well, this hasn’t been such a fail. Because whilst I can’t focus to WRITE when I have company, I CAN focus to draw, and so I’ve already begun designs for the second volume Advanced Colouring book.

On top of that, I spent last week creating all of the files for the first Advanced Colouring book, and uploaded them to the printer, received and approved the proof copy, and … Colour Me Funky – Advanced Colouring will be officially releasing on MONDAY!

\o/

Take a gander:

So, I’m very happy with this progress.

On the editing front?

Well, due to a postponement, I haven’t had any editing gigs since the beginning of August. However, I did get a last minute request from a new client, and that’s due to arrive today, so I’m pretty sure my break is about to be over.

What else happened this week?

Well, the house renovations are still ongoing and my house is still muchero upside down as a result. This is another reason I haven’t had much writing time, because I’ve had to make so many impromptu visits to B&Q for needed tools and pipework and paint and–gargh!–just about everything, I’ve reached a stage where I now hate the sight of the place. Seriously. But I’m truly seeing some end in sight for the room currently being done, after which I shall breathe a huge sigh of relief … until the next room reno begins.

Okay, so what’s everyone else been up to this week? Meet your goals? Talk to me.

*Weekly Check-in

Welcome to my weekly check-in where I post what I’ve been up to this past week. I actually missed writing last week’s post, as I went away on my hols with the fam last Friday and only got back just over a day ago. So, in essence, this week’s Weekly Check-In is actually for LAST WEEK’s accomplishments, as I rarely get my laptop out during family time. So …

Did I meet my writing target?

Yep. After recovering from the biggest saga of a sex scene ever, I thought I’d wouldn’t be able to continue for a while, but I did. I persevered and pushed through and added another couple of chapters to my WIP. \o/

 

As always, if you want to find out exactly what I’m writing, be sure to add Cornered to your Goodreads tbr.

And my Jenna Lyn Field target?

 

Yep, I’m very happy on this front. After diligently sketching and outlining and pushing through with design after design, I now have more than 2/3 of the designs required for the advanced colouring project I’m currently working on.

So, I’m happy with this progress, too.

On the editing front?

Yep, yep, all good, too, as I wrapped up the proofreading job and sent it back a couple of days ahead of schedule before my holidays began. Lordy, I actually sound like a I had a really productive week, eh?

What else happened this week?

Well, if we mean this week instead of last week (which is actually what this week’s post is about), then I went to Sunny Wales (mostly sunny, anyway), where the Internet connection is poor and the winds are strong, and the beaches long and beautiful, and I did lots of beach walking and experienced my first American diner visit, as well as got plenty of relaxation in to help me regenerate. Only trouble with so much relaxation, though, is the will to push back into work mode is weak. 😉

Okay, so what’s everyone else been up to this week? Meet your goals? Talk to me.

 

p.s. Keep your eyes open next week, as I’ll be sharing some news I’ve been keeping under my belt. ♥♥♥

*Weekly Check-in

Welcome to my weekly check-in where I post what I’ve been up to this past week.

Did I meet my writing target?

YES! I a) managed to wrap up my mahoosive chapter 22, and b) started in on chapter 23. I *had* hoped to have even more written, but I got stalled out with the distraction of waiting on beta feedback, and my bathroom is still being done, and now today, Mr B is home sick, so although I’ve slowed a bit, I still have tomorrow to get some words in (or this afternoon, Mr B’s sickness demands permitting).

 

As always, if you want to find out exactly what I’m writing, be sure to add Cornered to your Goodreads tbr.

And my Jenna Lyn Field target?

All good on this front, too.

Another 5 designs added to my advanced colouring project. I’m happy with that progress.

On the editing front?

Yep, yep, all good and on track. ☺

What else happened this week?

Well, I got my hair cut. That’s a pretty monumental occasion for an author, right? I mean, I left my house in the daytime and everything … 😛

Just kidding. Though, I do have a giveaway happening over on Facebook if you wanted to check it out. Otherwise, not much else to report.

Okay, so what’s everyone else been up to this week? Meet your goals? Talk to me.

*Weekly Check-in

Welcome to my weekly check-in where I post what I’ve been up to this past week.

Did I meet my writing target?

YES!!!!!!!

I not only met my word goal this week, but I wrote double that, and in the process, took some giant leaps in the scene I’m currently working on. And as I’m feeling MEGA accomplished in the writing department this week AND Cornered breached 70k, I do believe it calls for …

Muppet arms.

As always, if you want to find out exactly what I’m writing, be sure to add Cornered to your Goodreads tbr.

And my Jenna Lyn Field target?

All good on this front, too.

– Pink Hair, Blue Hair released on YESTERDAY, and it was a mighty fine day indeedy. Find out more HERE!

– I’ve added more designs to the advanced colouring book project I’ve been working on, and now have images ready for 7 pages.

So, I’m happy with this progress, too.

On the editing front?

I started on my new proofread, and as I suspected, based on the last story I proofread for this client, I’m already enjoying the job. So, yep, yep, all’s good on the editing front, too.

What else happened this week?

You mean, apart from all that? Well, I guess I could tell you that my house is upside down and Mr B has gutted the bathroom in order to redecorate from scratch and renovate–he even needed to replace the ceiling–but you probably don’t care that I shan’t get to shower for a few days and will be peeing in a bucket whilst the toilet is being switched over to the new one … right? 😉

Okay, so what’s everyone else been up to this week? Meet your goals? Talk to me.
