Complete

4:30am on February 19 marks the completion of There Will Come A Time, my debut novel. I am beyond excited and feel like screaming the house down but I don’t think my neighbours would appreciate that at all, so instead I will lie here and smile. And smile hard!

Now that its done I would love to say I will have some free time to maintain my blog and actually post some delightful and insightful antidotes on here but I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up. I dont even know of anyone reads blogs anymore?
I will, of course, try too post, as I do.

Coming up in my world is alot of learning over the next couple of months, I have alot of online courses I want to sign up for as well as hundreds of hours with of home learning, I am still reading my way through the stack of books I have about creative visualisation and meditation that are slowly going down book by book, but a lovely Author gave me an amazon gift card as a thank you for beta reading for her so that slowly decreasing pile I predicted will double in size before next week! Damn you books and your seductive powers!

My second novel is itching under my skin already and I have penned a few thousand words, but have promised myself to publish There Will Come A Time first then start it properly. I know full well that’s going to be broken, but shh dont tell my brain!

More sneaks seeing as editing is my life at the moment!

Over half way through a final edit.
Betas are awaiting. (thanks guys!)
Proof reader is being arranged.
Cover is being designed as I type.
Were so close!
But to wet your whistle, here’s a teaser….

“I know my past scares you. Fuck it scares me too! I know people will talk because of what I’ve done and I’m sorry I wasn’t a better person before you came along and that you’ll have to listen to the wise cracks and jokes about me and what I used to do. But I promise I am done with that. All of it!”

There are not enough hours in the day it seems! I am useless for keeping blogs up to date and I am sorry! So very sorry!
There past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of work, travel and self discovery.
I am currently beta reading for four authors, I am yet to come across anything bad or I didn’t like, I think if you’ve put your whole heart into something it cant be bad, your passion and your determination will shine through.
To add to this I am on a mission this year to broaden my horizons, with a huge push from one of my best friends and a personal role model I have been studying spiritualism and creative visualisation for the past month and have been blown away, I cant read the books, listen to the podcasts or watch the videos fast enough, I am feeling enlightened but also the need to delve deeper, learn more, experience more.
As well as being into final edits for “There Will Come A Time” and scribbling a rough draft for my second novel I have had an idea to bring what I have learnt to a younger generation so that it also in the planning stages with the help of a friend.
We have had an idea that if a younger generation was taught how to visualise a better world and manifest that world, believed in an abundant universe and meditated we could actually change the state of the world with nothing more than positive thinking.
Its a wonderful idea dont you think?
So that’s my life at the moment, and I wouldn’t change a minute of it!

oh, Vegan!One month in and feeling fantastic!
