What's Happening

What I thought I’d written: 'Three bikers entered the bank armed with handguns, bandanas concealing their faces.' What I’d actually typed: 'Three bikers entered the bank armed with handguns, bananas concealing their faces.' D’oh!
Have spent all day at the hospital. Turns out my hubby had a stroke :(
Props to our antipodean Litopians for getting up to join us live at crazy o’clock, not just for Pop-Ups but also for last night’s first Huddle. Their contributions were brilliant & sheer motivation a lesson to us all :)
Note to Self for the next Huddle: either lock Self into a closed room, or set Self up outdoors in the rain, or better: feed cat first. If not, cat will pester and try to jump up onto the keyboard at most inconvenient moments or worse, cat will try to chew comp cables while Self desperately attempts to figure out how to use a mic. Just as well mic didn't work. Miaou miaou miaou ...
On Sunday's Pop-Up Submissions "The Origami Butterflies" by Gigi Karagoz; "The Guardians" by Frances Koziar; "Ad Matai" by Rafi Bocarsly; "Dichotomy of good and evil: The sword of sacrifice" by Abhishek Das; "Cynetic Wolf" by Matt Ward. Join us live at 5pm UK!
I feel vaguely guilty about having opted to self publish. I just convinced myself that if I ever wanted to see the 'damn' book published in my life time, I'd better do it myself. It has been - to put it mildly - a steep learning curve. Just wish I was younger so I could add all these new skills to my cv. But, at least, it should now hit the stores early next week.
Apparently if you mention my name at MIBL Art for the covers etc, you will get a discount.
Just three places left for Saturday’s Writers’ Huddle… book here...
Sooooo excited! It looks like I'm finally getting the cover I want. I'll post a picture as soon as I'm sure. But, honestly the first draft is so good, I'd be happy with that. My experience with this agency has been very positive and I'll happily pass on their details.
Well, the universe is either telling me to clean up my writing act, or else it's hinting I should launder money. I took the washing from the machine and found a 50p coin with a book image minted onto it at the bottom the of the drum. The British Library 50p.
