In need of inspiration!

Posted: January 21, 2015 in books

Hard times at the moment, health issues, demanding children, and not enough time in the day. I’m trying to juggle a million things at once, and there doesn’t seem to be any room for what I want. I’m posting two quotes of inspiration because I need it. Their words are just what I need right now, to force me not to give up my dream because I’m too busy sorting everyone else’s lives out. I will find a way 🙂

Online grocery shopping hit or miss?

Posted: January 15, 2015 in books


Have you ever ordered your grocery shopping online? I do every week. I hate the cramped aisles in a supermarket, where your ankles almost get chopped to the bone by other shoppers trolleys, who seem to be in far more need to move through the aisle than you are! Then there’s the marathon checkout worker, who literally throws your shopping through the conveyor like they are breaking a world record, and shoving your food into bags as quick as you can, so that you can get out of there. These reasons are why I shop online, but the question is, is that any better? People say to me, they like to check out the deals in the supermarket, but you can also do this online. My point is, I prefer to do it online, but I have to say, ASDA are the worst online grocery store ever! Now, I have used other online grocery stores, TESCO, ICELAND etc, so my claim is well founded. The site itself can be buggy, taking forever to load, and sometimes leaving you unable to checkout, but the worst is when it’s delivered. Most of the time, there are no bags, leaving you bringing in one item at a time. Then because the driver is in such a rush, you don’t get time to check if it’s all there. On many occasions, I have had huge amounts of shopping missing, usually all of my frozen stuff, then you have to go through all of the hassel of ringing customer service for re-delivery. Also on many occasions, there have been times when they say items are out of stock, like bananas. Really? You expect me to believe, that in the entire store there are no bananas?

I have not had any of these problems with other stores, but unfortunately ASDA, is one I’m comfortable with. I like their products, and prices, but their service is a total joke! You’ve been warned 🙂

Twisted bloodlines update

Posted: January 10, 2015 in books


My series has been left in the background lately due to a change of publisher. I’m still being published under Moon Rose Publishing, but we have merged with Sidestreet Cookie Publishing which is run by Tyffani Clark. I can now tell you, that the fourth book in the Twisted Bloodlines series is due for release on 16th March 2015 🙂 There will also be a fourteen day tour for the series beginning in February, and also a release day blast, details will follow nearer the time, so watch this space 🙂 You can also get the first three in the series at a lower price, follow the links below, and you can find the other two from there:

Why not give Tyffani, a visit over on her page, and hit like. She’s an author as well as a publisher 🙂

Has the fun gone out of Christmas?

Posted: January 10, 2015 in books


So now a new year begins, but is it me, or does Christmas not seem as festive as it used to be? Maybe it’s because I’m getting older, or stressful times have put a dampener on it, but I’m not so sure on that. In the lead up to Christmas, shops and houses rushed to put up their decorations, and most were taken down the day after Christmas. All I seemed to hear about through the period, was the sales. You also had black Friday, which seemed to be more important than the day itself! It seems to me, Christmas has become all about how many deals you can snag, rather than time with your family, and the look on your kids faces Christmas morning when they see their presents. There wasn’t really that many Christmas movies on the television either, but there were plenty of adverts teasing with their sales. Has the joy really gone from Christmas? I feel it has 😦
