Hello everyone thanks for popping over to my blog!
Last month I decided that after lockdown and when hairdressers reopen not to go and have a cut as my hair was already long – why not donate it to charity?? So I researched what to do and found out that I nearly had the length they want (7 inches) but they really would like 12 inches plus as that can make more longer wigs – so will get it cut once get to that length!
The Little Princess Trust provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, up to 24 years, who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or other conditions. They use hair donations and fundraising monies sent to manufacture and fit real hair wigs. Established in 2006 they have supplied over 8000 wigs to children and young people. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jennifer-booker1
It costs around £500 to make a wig so fundraising is just as important so they can continue to give them out for free.
So today is the release of the sci fi two volume anthology books where two of my stories are featured in. 😀
It’s such a buzz seeing them go from idea to print! 🙂 I am slowly learning how to edit and still feels surreal seeing my name on the back.
It is now available on Amazon (on kindle- Paperback to follow shortly).
Happy dance 😀 I loved working on the two stories and I’m so happy to be a part of these books and featuring alongside amazing authors!
The journey from an idea to print is amazing (also the mix of emotions that go with it) make it so worth it- hard work, stress, relief, anxiety but also the smile when someone has read your story and liked it or it gets accepted to be published- it really is a mix bag of emotions!
“The universe—vast, unknown, mysterious, existing as a playground of imagination. From aliens older than time itself, an archaeological dig that portends the fate of Earth, a sentient planet, developing races, colonization, a world fighting for its existence, these and more stories await you within the Dimensions of Science Fiction. Join the authors from Writers Unite! as they take you on a voyage across the universe.”
If you read it and enjoyed it please leave a review 🙂
How can you learn to truly love yourself? How can you transform negative emotions into positive ones? Is it possible to find lasting happiness?
In this book, Instagram guru Vex King answers all of these questions and more. Vex overcame adversity to become a source of hope for thousands of young people, and now draws from his personal experience and his intuitive wisdom to inspire you to:
– practise self-care, overcome toxic energy and prioritize your wellbeing – cultivate positive lifestyle habits, including mindfulness and meditation – change your beliefs to invite great opportunities into your life – manifest your goals using tried-and-tested techniques – overcome fear and flow with the Universe – find your higher purpose and become a shining light for others
In this book, Vex will show you that when you change the way you think, feel, speak and act, you begin to change the world.
What can I say- this book is amazing and has definitely made an impact! This self help (or personal development) book was a gem- never have I folded so many pages (yes I’m one of them!) of inspiring quotes and reflections that truly make you think.
It’s the best guide for self care and positive mindset I have ever read and it’s one that I can keep re-reading whenever I need it 🙂
I’m now following him on Instagram to see more great content! This book I DEFIANTLY recommend and is now in my top books 🙂 I’m so happy I found it and will always be on my bedside table. If you want to change your anxiety or fear or want to learn more about positive techniques then this is your book!
So many years ago I was introduced to manga- I loved watching them and went to a few expos up London. I drew some but never attempted to read any.
Until recently! I have rediscovered my love of manga and attempted to read the one book I got from an expo and it was easy to read once I followed the pattern!
How pretty are they! Maybe one day I will do a story manga style??
So how do you read them? You start backward! The spine should be on the right side not left!
Read panels from right to left and in an up to down sequence. Like the pages of manga, individual panels should be read in a right to left sequence. Start reading each page by beginning with the panel that is in the upper right hand corner of the page. Read right to left and when you reach the edge of the page, go to the panel in the far-right of the following row of panels
So I then started to redraw chibis (good starting point to anime)
I drew manga back before I had Jess, then I stopped 😦 I will try and find my old drawings to share and see progress over time.
Looking forward to drawing more 🙂
Do you read/draw/watch manga? What anime styles do you like??
Amber is a city girl at heart. So when her boyfriendJake suggests they move to the countryside to help out at his family farm, she doesn’t quite know how to react. But work has been hectic and she needs a break so she decides to grasp the opportunity and make the best of it.
Dreaming of organic orchards, paddling in streams and frolicking in fields, Amber packs up her things and moves to Skylark Farm. But life is not quite how she imagined – it’s cold and dirty and the farm buildings are dilapidated and crumbling.
But Amber is determined to make the best of it and throws herself into farm life. But can she really fit in here? And can she and Jake stay together when they are so different?
This was such a lovely read 🙂 some of the plot I knew before it happened but still enjoyed reading it.
I liked the main character and the side characters too- and even though this was a follow on book from the cherry tree cafe (not read yet) it didn’t matter. The surroundings were described wonderfully and how the main character settles into country life was realistic.
