October-we’en

 

And I haven’t carved a pumpkin! This is intolerable! How will I keep the demons away now?!

Oh yeah, with rock salt.

Thanks, Supernatural ^-^

Thanks, Supernatural ^-^

Sooooo, we’re onto our second delivery of books now. Steadily going through them, selling to those who couldn’t make it to the first signing. Also taking a trip to Ponteland this weekend to speak to an old manager about doing a signing there ๐Ÿ™‚

Make up test for my Hallowe’en costume was successful. I’ll post pictures with the complete outfit when it’s actually Hallowe’en. No spoilers ๐Ÿ™‚

ALSO I’m being interviewed by EJ Runyon of Bridge to Story, also known as one of my fabulous editors forย The Old Ways ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s in three parts, go check out her website, it’s a great resource for writers!

Oh, and I had my first panic attack in three years at work today… that wasn’t fun ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’m still a bit shaken over it. I never get panic attacks, so it’s really thrown me off my game. I’ll struggle through, though. I don’t have any choice, I have to. No one else to do the work, so I’ve got to just get on with it, I guess.

Okay, this is getting maudlin. Better go play with some dragon cubs to cheer myself up.

Blessed be,

New Kitty!

We’re absolutely never going to replace Luna, but since she passed away, the house has felt empty and much too quiet.

So, after a few discussions and a home visit from an adoption rep, we’ve now adopted a gorgeous 1 year old kitty. Her name was originally Lady, but my mother has decided to rename her, of all things,ย Thissy.

Thissy2

Yes, Thissy. A green-eyed little madame with a raccoon-tail. She’s very shy and skittish, but the adoption folks said she would take a few days to settle herself in.

She’s soย vocal. It might just be because of the whole “new house, new people” thing. She’s found herself a little space behind the sofa to sleep. She’s very affectionate, and was apparently raised by dressage horses – she keeps lifting her paws up high when she walks, and headbutts our hands for affection.

Her previous owner moved away and left her behind. Who does such a thing? What horrible person does something like that?

In naming her Thissy, however, it does mean I can now never kill off the character… -_-

 

Blessed be

)O( Book Signing Today! )O(

Poster

I had my very first book signing today forย The Old Ways, and I’m pleased to announce, despite being completely and utterly exhausted, I sold out of every copy I had!

Today was so fantastic, I’m so grateful to everyone who came along to support me, everyone who bought a copy, and everyone who helped me get sorted. Considering, this morning, I was a trembling nervous mess who could barely hold a Sharpie.

More pictures below!

Also, if anyone missed the show the other night, I was on Metro Radio’s Night Owls with Alan Robson. Check it out here. I was on the Thursday (8th October) show, and I’m on at about 1 hour 27 minutes in ๐Ÿ˜€

I was also in the Chronicle newspaper! Check out the article here.

Oh, it’s been a busy few weeks! I just want to sleep now. Eat and sleep.

What an awesome experience this has been. I’m hoping to ride the wave and continue with more signings in the future.

I’ll keep you posted!

Blessed be
