What Day is it Anyway? Sunday 12th July 2020

My Day:  I have a three day weekend this weekend, which I had completely forgotten about! I had booked Monday off because me and my sister were going to Hyper Japan in London, but that’s been moved to next year now. I didn’t bother cancelling the day as a three-day weekend is always welcome! Especially at the moment when my Perfect World muse is working overtime!

I’m on Chapter 21 now and this novel really is just writing itself now!  I spent much of today re-vamping the Perfect World website and I’m pretty pleased with how it came out. Everything seems to be a lot more organised there now. I’ve also been adding to the Pinterest Board for the series!

Yesterday was the fishing tournament in Animal Crossing so I spent much of the day doing that. I managed to get all the items and then duplicates too. CJ seemed to think I really liked the fish rug as I got 5 of that! I do like the rug, but a bit of variation would have been nice! I also redesigned my campsite as I had some new ideas for it. I keep thinking I have finished making over my Island and then find there’s more I want to do. It’s so much fun though and a good stress-reliever too!


Linda G. Hill came up with this great idea to keep track of the weeks and months ahead. For those who already are, and will be isolated in the coming weeks, it is important to all come together and support each other.

My day: My book proof for Demon’s Life arrived! I am so happy with how it turned out and it looks so good alongside Demon’s Blood too! I’m going to go through them both at the weekend and approve them so they will hopefully go live next week. I can then also order myself final copies! Then it will be on to Perfect World!

DB and DL Proof

I had a call from my bank this afternoon to inform me that an unauthorised charge had been made on my credit card for the grand total of 81p! And thanks to that idiot I now have had my card cancelled and have to wait 5-10 working days for a new one!

I’m still getting on really well with my review backlog! I am now four novels away from clearing it which is amazing seeing I was so far behind!

What Day is it Anyway? Tuesday, 2nd June 2020

My Day: I’ve been reading so much more since lock-down began and as I think about what has changed since before, I definitely want to keep reading as much as I have done.  I finished another book today and am half way through another which never happened before.

At the weekend I submitted the print version of Demon’s Life so I am now waiting on the proof. I’m really excited to see it and also see it alongside Demon’s Blood. Once they have both been approved I just need to finalise the print versions of Perfect World and New Era and then all my published works, apart from Never Change, will be available in print format! I don’t even have printed copies so I’m really looking forward to being able to get them and put them on my bookshelf.

It’s suddenly got really hot the last few days. I get the sun in my front room in the afternoon/early evening so I have been putting my fan on when I’m on my laptop or watching the TV. I do feel a bit bad though as Tash is scared of it. She sits in her TeePee and watches me and when I go to turn it off she runs out and sits on me the minute I do!

Demon’s Blood Book Proof!

I received the other week my book proof for the Demon’s Blood reprint! Overall I am very happy with how it came out and I really should have approved it by now but I’m a little stuck on one point and would appreciate your thoughts on it.

DB Proof

As you can see in the photo there is a fold line down the left hand side so when you open it, it folds all nicely. Now my question is about the text. It is currently aligned to the fold line so there is the same amount of space each side but it also gives the impression that it is off-centre if that makes sense? My question is should I leave it how it is or move it so the text aligns with the same spacing each side without taking the fold line into account?

Any thoughts anyone has on this would be very much appreciated as I’m really not sure what would look better.

Upcoming works in 2020

I hope everyone had a brilliant new year!

I thought I would take this time to share with you what I have planned writing-wise for 2020.

Perfect World

Book 3 is still in the drafting stages and whilst I’m unsure if it will be released next year, it is at the top of my priorities list to get finished. I’m super excited about the direction book 3 is taking and cannot wait to share it with you all!

Demon’s Blood universe

I have been working on a prequel to Demon’s Blood which will cover the early years of Taku and Thane’s relationship, including how they first met. I’m loving writing this as late 1800s Japan is such an interesting period to write about!

Untitled fantasy novel

This novel has literally been in my drafts for over ten years! It was the first novel I ever wrote for NaNoWriMo but for various reasons its never made it any further than drafts until now. I cannot wait to restart working on this and plan to during the latter half of 2020.
