Celebrating the Internet, Jupiter Ascending, EY Meme and Goal Hop

Image
I am happy to say first off that internet is back at home after nearly a week without it. If that's not something to celebrate clearly you have never used the internet.

I say Jupiter Ascending on Tuesday and had a wonderful time. The technology was mind blowing and the action insane. The story was engaging despite the huge plot holes. While I can understand why critics would hate it, I must say that this is the best movie I have seen so far in 2015. I plan to see Kingsman soon so it might become the second best but for the moment, money well spent.

Goal Hop


I have started an adult novel named Mermaid Strippers and hope to have it drafted and edited by the end of the year. This is my new goal for the hop in 2015. Wish me luck.


EY Meme



I think Draco Malfoy from the Potter books deserve his own series. Hell so does Severus Snape. Especially Snape. Who wouldn't want to know the history of these two secondary but essential characters?

I leave you with a video that w…

Celebrating Fifty Shades and EYM Sum Up

Image
I saw Fifty Shades of Grey on Tuesday and had a nice time. Ana was ridiculous in my opinion but I truly believe the director took what he had and made a good film I would recommend anyone interested in seeing this movie to go have a look see.

Feb 16-20: Favourite? Um...one I read?

Prayers for Bobbie Kristina

Image
Today I would like to send heartfelt prayer and condolences to friends and family of Bobbi Kristina Brown. Let's hope for recovery and if not preparation for the grief that will persist if she ends up having to be removed from life support. Such a sad situation with her mom passing away barely three years go. I really do hope that this ends in recovery and Bobbi has a second chance at life.

Celebrating Black History Month

Image
February is Black History Month and this is a time to celebrate the achievements and strides made by our black brothers and sisters and fellow man/woman. Also to remember our history to see where our ancestors came from and has been achieved from the past right up to today.

On the Jamaicans.com Website there is an article that touches the heart of what makes this month so special. Here is an excerpt of this article:


Black History Month...Its Significance. By Published Jan 24, 2007Marcus Garvey...“Up! Up! You Mighty Race you can accomplish what you will!”

Black History!
I and I have research my History
Now armed with knowledge and the truth, I know much about my roots.
Marcus Garvey, Claude McKay, Peter Tosh... I have to big up
Their recordings and their writings can never be too much
Since I and I start research my History.

Black History Month (BHM) is like the relationship a mother has with her children. It teaches who we are, where we must go and what we must be. It conce…

IWSG: An Official Update from Yours Truly

Image
Another IWSG is upon us and we all have the chance to share our insecurities with understanding fellow members. Today I will be sharing with you my updates from the writing front. Attention!



The Missing Girls Series 

I am excited to say that I have moved Where is Sarah? release date from March to June 15, 2015. Most of you are like....how is that exciting? Delays are often awful things for a writer and disappoint fans who anticipated the original date. But this is different and let me tell you all the reason why. I could release the novella in March. But you know what? I won't. Recently I have had an upsurge in sales for my freelance and ghostwriting work. One so great that I have decided it will allow me time to create a much better release with giveaways, better promotion, and an all round amazing time for everyone. What I do need to do so however is time. Time to create awesome swag, banners and to even radjust certain things now that I have the cash to do so. I don't plan t…

EYM Round up and Stripping Mermaids?

Image
Today I will be doing all of January's Express Yourself Meme's question in one go.



Jan 5-9: My resolution is pretty much to accomplish what I can actually do and surprise myself.

Jan 12-16: Saw Into The Woods at the cinema in December and it was wonderful.

Jan 19-23: Guardians of The Galaxy was mind blowingly awesome. Also there was the dark Nightcrawler and the crazy pants plot twist Gone Girl.

Jan 26-30: Write everyday, know your audience, write what you love.

Stripping Mermaids?

Yes my first 2015 manuscript will have stripping mermaids. Also it will be an adult novel and I am excited about finding different ways to show life under the sea from my perspectives. So far I seem to think pearls make better lighting for a strip show than floating electric eels. Imagine that? Enjoy your week everyone and remember IWSG is this Wednesday.
