A Man’s Life
Guest post by Dominic Holland

We don’t really get to choose the events that form and shape us. They just happen. Episodes and incidents that remain with us for our entire lives.

One such event in my life came when I was being bullied at school and a boy I barely knew came to my rescue. He was older than me and I can remember that he was enormous.

I was incredibly grateful but cannot recall saying thank you at the time and the whole incident has remained with me and has come to inspire…

Well. And there’s really only one song that’ll do today. ’nuff said!

Have a FABULOUS summer, everyone. 🙂
Would love to hear your plans!

Next up, the kids are lucky enough to get a holiday from me for a few days when they stay at the grandparents’. 🙂 Then we’re all off to Yorkshire together for a coast’n’moors holiday. And apart from that, we have plenty of day trips and jollifications at home planned. The next six weeks will fly by, I’m sure… And you know what happens at the end of the summer holidays, right?

My Holy Grail: Two hits, one touch

Nicky Wells: Love & Thrills

This has been a pretty awesome week for me. In terms of my personal holy grails (of which there are many, LOL), I hit two and touched one. Alas, because of the unexpected and rather longer than predicted heat wave, my brain’s fried so I’ll give you my week in pictures rather than words.

Holy Grail, Hit 1:
Cover Reveal for Sophie’s Encore

I had the most astounding day, with no less than 23  fabulous bloggers taking part and a HUGE amount of interest in the cover, the excerpt and the giveaway (did I mention there are two preview e-copies of Sophie’s Encore up for grabs?).

You can visit the cover reveal post here,

FIVE SENTENCE FICTION – Locked

2 Comments

Another week has come and Lillie McFerrrin [http://www.lilliemcferrin.com

]has given another Five Sentence Fiction prompt for us to contend with. For this week she has given us LOCKED; and after thinking about it for the past two days, I’ve come up with the following and I’d love to hear your comments. This is something that I’ve missed doing for a while and it should get the creative juices in my little grey cells flowing again.

LOCKED IN A STRUGGLE !!!

Yes, that’s what we as authors all are, LOCKED in a struggle.

We’re all LOCKED in a struggle as what line we should write next.

We’re all LOCKED in a struggle to get our completed endevor published.

The everyday life of an author is a struggle.

And how many of you authors reading this, as I am, LOCKED in struggle to someone to buy our creation[s].

I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S BEEN 6 WEEKS

Leave a comment

Hi ALL

I can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks since I last posted something in this blog; and a lot of things has happen since then:

Around the middle of May I’d been made the Manager of the LinkedIn group “Children’s Book Authors” where I cleaned up the discussion area by deleting almost 300 new discussions, all of which had been SPAM, the majority of which had been written by one individual whose posts were nothing more than a Tweet written in Twitter.  There I set up some rules there and copied them into my own two LinkedIn groups,”Authors/Writers Helping Authors/Writers” and Young Adult Book Authors.”

Unfortunately, that group’s owner decided to delete the entire group, which I’d have been happy to takeover myself.

In June I got made the Moderator for the LinkedIn group “Fantasy Fiction Readers and Professionals” as well as becoming the Manager for “New Authors Need Marketing Ideas.”

A great deal of time since May 12 had been spent trying to promote the KINDLE version of my first YA Paranormal/Time Travel/First Kiss romance novel entitled “I Kissed a Ghost.”

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CRQ9SC6                                                                        I’m still hoping to recoup the monies I’ve spent on this book so I can published my next one.

As far as my writing my this second romance novel, a still untitled Contemporary with a paranormal element running through parts of the storyline is concerned, I’ve written 12 chapters consisting of 89 pages with approximately 26,300 words. I know where I want to go with the storyline, however I’ve stuck on my next chapter [13] still unsure of how to handle the wedding scene, as far as the narrative is concerned.

Had a nice rest period with my OH, away from everything during a few days around the fourth of July.  Now I’m back. And I mean business.

I’m going back to writing Flash Fiction, and during regular posts on my three blogs. Going back to writing my second romance novel. And once again promoting/marketing  my first YA romance novel.

Here are the links to the LinkedIn groups I’m involved with.  Everyone is welcome to check them out and consider joining. If you’re on LinkedIn, I’d love to connect with you [if I’m not already]
