Yeah, I had to get one of these. A professional one. And of course I messed up my hair the day before so it was a weird colour. And obviously the picture I chose looks like I’m not wearing any pants (I am) and I also forgot to take off the dumb hair-band I was wearing around my wrist. And I really felt so awkward when I get my photo taken and I think my smile looks really strange.
I'm very excited to say that I was hosted on fellow author S.J.Morgan's blog this week for my first ever author interview!
That was a strange experience! Talking about yourself in an interview. Weird! But also very cool too!
I talk to S.J.Morgan about my upcoming debut novel, MAKING FRIENDS WITH ALICE DYSON, about my writing process, how I got published and all that sort of jazz. And hopefully I didn't say anything silly. Sigh. But I bet I did!
Anyway, if you'd like to check out my very first ever author interview, you can follow this LINK TO INTERVIEW.
This post talks about the author questionnaire, which was something I had to fill out very early on in the publication process.
It is basically an information request from a publisher, to see what (or who) you know that might be helpful for your publicity or marketing, and also to see what interesting stories there may be behind your work.
And my understanding is, the more they know about you the better!
Well here it is, the end of the year. The end of 2018! And instead of writing a big reflection post I thought I'd put this collection of all my monthly diary entries of the year together instead (mainly because I am on holiday and it is hot and I'd rather be at the beach :) And I am lazy! Ha!).
In reflection, this is what I have achieved in 2018, and I'm not going to lie, I feel very proud of it!
Signed my first book contract for my YA debut novel
Worked with an editor to get it ready for publication
Wrote 3 first drafts (2 super rough and one edited fully)
Read 61 books (3 adult novels and the rest YA books)
Was brave and attended book events and made new friends (through my cool book club and new author friends)
Give me something I haven't seen Give me the red light turning green Give me the words but not the page Give me it all I called you up Three times last night Running through the streets Bloody, from a fist fight Keep you warm Keep you there Wanna keep you all
