I do desire we may be better strangers. William Shakespeare
Happy New Year, Wolves!
I know, doesn’t that seem strange reading those words so late in January? But I’m sure you’ve noticed a considerable amount of silent treatment on my end the last few months. Sometimes, life has a funny way of creeping up and consuming you.Even in my absence I didn’t stop thinking of you, and I’ve been writing. I’m constantly writing, it’s just not what I always want to write. I’m looking at you, Uni assignments. However, my intentions and goals for this year are pretty humongous – both personal and professional.So, why am I quoting Shakespeare today? Well, it’s pretty simple. I’m well overdue a new Vlog – that’s a video blog btw, you know, in case you’re not down with the kids. (I can hear my younger self tutting and shaking her head in disapproval at that. When did I get old? Scratch that question, I don’t think I’d like the answer, it’ll probably have something to do with grey hairs. Yes, I have them. A LOT OF THEM. Gone are the days of snipping one or two. Anyway, I’ve digressed…)
The last time I created a video I’d only just started out in this Author ShowBiz back in 2014. Everything was all new back then! If you haven’t seen it, please cringe along with me here. But now, I’m ready to dive back into the swing of things, and that means keeping in touch with you about words I’m finally going to publish this year. Want to know more? Then ask me. That’s right. I want to know what you want to know from me – sorry, this isn’t supposed to be some riddle you have to solve before you get the prize. Basically, I’m going to answer all your questions in a video. Whether they’re about my books, what I’m working on, what I’m currently doing with my weird life or even who my favourite superhero is. Actually, no, please don’t ask me that. I don’t have an answer! What I’m suggesting is you have carte blanche. Go crazy! All you have to do is comment below with your question. And what’s more, one lucky inquisitor will win a mystery prize. Game on?
Happy Monday! And, for a change, what a happy Monday it is! Why? Because I’ve finally created the Q&A vlog I said I’d do months ago. So, without further ado, I give you my face, and voice… Enjoy! On a sidenote, forgive the noisy interruptions, no matter how many times I did the video something always came up. Ah, such is life. 😉
Today, I have an exciting proposal to make that I hope sounds just as fun for you as it is for me. I’ve been wanting to try something different other than blogging for a while now, and I think I’ve decided on an idea. I absolutely love blogging and there’s no way I’ll be stopping anytime soon. But wouldn’t it be cool if I came to you on another awesome platform, too?
What is this awesome idea I have rattling around my mind? Well, I’ll tell you . . .
YouTube Videos, otherwise known as Vlogging.
And because you guys are the whole reason I’m doing this, the first video is basically a Q&A with me. You can ask me anything about the books or even what’s to come in the series/new ideas, my writing, me. ANYTHING. All you have to do is e-mail (email@example.com) your question, leave a comment on this post or ask me on twitter/facebook, and I’ll make sure to include it in the video.
I’m so excited about this new venture that I’m offering up a giveaway, too. Everyone that asks a question will have their name entered to win an eBook copy of Nature’s Destiny and Sapphire’s Divinity through Smashwords (you can choose which format you prefer then). Phew! I’ll announce the winner on the vlog.
The video will be posted in the next couple of weeks, so until then I hope you have a great week!
