Today I got in, made my lunch, put some washing on, washed up, having to the boil the kettle as we ran out of gas and new bottles are coming tomorrow. Why did I not order them on Monday, oh yeah I was on here updating and going through Push with a friend. Which I am happy to say that went well and I have a plan of action, thank you Darcy. And even though we were nervous of doing a video chat via Facebook, it was really good. Two hours we chatted like that, awesome or what.
Back on topic and not wanting to bore you, but I already have one hour before the school run time. What do I have time to do, not much, but I will take a look at what I can work on tomorrow and at the weekend.
I think I will be using my speech program to read the novel back to me, don't want any more wrong words.
My other plan is to find out what a street team is, and what they do, and if I have to pay for one. If you know, and would like to let me know, great, or you are one, and looking to add a Romance Author or YA, New Adult and Adult novels, let me know would love to chat about my options.

That's it a whole week and what have I done. Not much. Finished another round of edits for book 2. Started and Finished reading another book. Took the children out.
Today my day is filled with the chore I hate. Sock sorting. How do I end up with so many non pairs.
Tomorrow the children are back to school and I would love to spend it writing. Will I...good question. Maybe if I get my planning for work done today. Fingers and toes crossed.
Oh and I am hoping to work on Push soon.

I have had it all day today and I should not really complain as its the first one I have had this year. Typical though that my partner has gone back to work today and I have the house to myself until the school run and then I have the kids home.
Tonight there will be no time, as I am out to Zumba, trying to get fit, trying being the word. The diet really needs to start soon and I need to stick to it.
I am hoping this is the start of the new me.

A single stand alone book, or another series, or should I simply do the single book and then the series. I would love them all to be released at some point, but what in order, does it matter?
Here is a little of Push, it is very rough, needs editing, but what do you guys think. Please comment. I need feedback. Also debating making it first person. I would love to hear what you think. Should I keep her the age she is, or older? I also am aware it needs more description, I will be working on that. I want to know, would you want to read more?

I have heard good news today that my book will now be available in print, anyone excited about this, I know I am. Cannot wait to see it in print. Hold it in my hands, I will post a pic of the new one when I receive it. For now here is me with the old one. I am not a fan of my picture being taken, but here it is anyway.
I knows its not a great picture, I hate having it done, but here I am holding the original book that was created with my first publisher. Now I have a UK based one and well as soon as I have my hands on it, I will upload it. Hopefully looking a tad thinner, well one can wish....hee hee
Here is the new cover design:

I am currently reading a series of four books, by Ryn Shell. Her series of Billabong series. I am on book two and will post a review as soon as I am done.
As well as reading, updating my social networks I am also editing book 2.
Book 1, could do with some love too, so feel free to grab a copy.
I spot my mother's car approaching me. I see her wave, and smile as our eyes lock. Then as if slow motion, the most horrific scene plays out before my eyes. The van switches lanes once again right into my mother's path. The look on her face as she steps on the brakes shows she has realised it's too late, the car ploughs into the van at such speed she has no time to react. I watch in horror as my mother flies forward. I close my eyes and crumble to the floor, shielding my vision, not wanting to see the scene continue to play out. Hearing metal on metal as screams fill the air it's then i realise it's me who is screaming.
My name is Debbie Conway, I am thirteen years old and from the day I witnessed my mother's death I could think of little else. To ease my pain, I spent more time in my dream world, in the arms of Joshua Lawson, the guy from the poster above my bed, and starring in my favorite T.V show, Victor.
Meet my best friend Wendy, former best friend and school bully Karen and a boy who will confuse my love for Joshua Lawson, Mark Hobson. He's a new student from America, whose accent alone sends shivers up and down my spine.
