Talk in the Forest of Dean

wpid-20150929_192014-1.jpgJust a quick update to let you know that I will be doing a short talk at the Earth Mysteries Group meeting in Coleford this Thursday night at 7.30pm! If you’re in the area, pop in, it’s free entry. I will have books available for sale, if you want to get a signed copy or have a chat about aliens, then come along.

For more details see the piece in the Forest Review :)


New Book Cover Reveal!

Earth Angel Series fans! This one is for you :)

I would like to announce that the Kindle release date for The Twin Flame Resurrection is the…

23rd October 2015!

Which is also the birthdate of a few very special people that I love. (They know who they are!) The print version will be available as soon as humanly possible after that date. And without any further ado, here is the cover of the book, thanks to the genius madappledesigns:


What do you think? The story follows on from The Twin Flame Retreat, but follows five different Earth Angels as they find, lose and are reunited with their Twin Flames. Some of the characters are from The Earth Angel Training Academy, and we also visit favourite characters and get to find out what they’re up to.

The next book in the series, which I am currently writing, will be available by Christmas, and I will reveal the title, cover and release date as soon as I can for that one too!

If you are an Earth Angel series fan, pleased consider writing reviews for the books on Amazon, especially the ones later in the series, as they have fewer reviews that the first ones! It would be amazing to encourage more people to pick them up and give them a try! Thank you, I really do appreciate it. xx

Taking Time Out

Apologies for the lack of posting recently, it seems like the Universe wanted me to take a little time out, which manifested in not feeling very well! I have blogged about this before, that if we don’t choose to take time out, to rest, relax and replenish, then we are likely to be forced to take time out, by our body or some incident that happens.

I had to cancel my day of readings and talk in Zenith in Leominster on Monday, because I didn’t feel well enough to go. I have spent the last three days doing very little, and yesterday I even switched off my phone and sat and read a book that I had been looking forward to – Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. There were so many things in the book that resonated with me, and there were many things that have opened my eyes to the way I view creativity, and how it may not be helping me to see it that way.

I would recommend getting a copy of the book, and also watching the latest episode of MarieTV, where Marie and Elizabeth talk about the book.

I have still been working on the latest two books in the Earth Angel series, and I promise that I will reveal the cover the second it’s ready! Along with the release date for it. I am 30k words into the seventh book, which I still aim to release by Christmas.

So apologies in advance if I don’t get to write again for a bit, I am either editing or writing at the moment. But I promise to keep updating as much as I can. Now go buy Elizabeth’s book and get some Big Magic into your life :)

Become a Patron


Though I found some time ago, I have only just created my profile on there, and started to reach out to people to become patrons of my work. In the coming few months, I have lots of projects I would love to do, and make available online for free, but I need time and income to do so. I’d also like to increase the number of books I publish from two a year to five a year. I’m on target to publish three this year, but if I want to get the rest of the Earth Angel series out in a timely fashion, I need to spend more time writing and less time on worrying about paying bills.

I also have two more books in the Visionary Collection in my mind, and a YA trilogy that’s screaming to be told, and the audiobook versions to record. And to create all this awesome content, I need help.

That’s where Patreon comes in. You can pledge a certain amount per month, which I then receive to help me create the content, which is then available for free online. My books won’t be free to everyone, but the patrons will receive discounts and rewards for their support. My aim is to increase my readership to the point where my royalties are providing me with a decent income, but until then, I think Patreon is the best way forward.

So if you have read and enjoyed my books, or videos, or articles and stories, and you want to see more content, more often, then please do check out my profile and consider becoming a Patron. Every penny helps, because it means that I can concentrate on what I’m meant to be doing with my life, and stay in my Zone of Genius more often.

It will also mean that I can pay the people who have been helping me to get my work out into the world, and even to invest in help with the marketing, which will help my books to reach a wider audience.

If giving money is not something you’re able to do, or agree with, then please know that all forms of support are very much appreciated – comments on my blog, reviews of my books, my quote photos being shared, tweets being retweeted – it’s all really awesome. I also very much appreciate the emails I receive from readers from all around the world, letting me know the impact my work has had upon them. All of these things help to remind me why I do the work I do, and that I shouldn’t run off to get a crappy job or join the circus or anything.

You are awesome, thank you for your love and encouragement. xxx

Want to Attend the Earth Angel Training Academy?

Earth Angel Training Academy Logo

It’s tough being an Earth Angel sometimes, and despite having had training on the Other Side before arriving, there are some things that are still difficult to deal with. Which is why I have created a seven week course (with the assistance of amazing Earth Angel Andrew Embling), consisting of seven evening classes, that are based on the classes taught at the Earth Angel Training Academy on the Other Side. (Which you can read about in the book)

The classes can be taken individually or you can attend them all! Each one will go into depth on the topic, and will include an activity and useful techniques and actions you can take into your life to improve your experience here on Earth.

The classes will be running in two locations before Christmas, starting on Thursday the 15th October in Harts Barn in Longhope, and then on Monday the 2nd November in Peace of Stone in Monmouth. In the new year, there will be two more locations, and later in the year it will be developed into an online video course so that no matter where you are in the world, you can take the Earth Angel Training Academy classes!

The aim is to have fun, to create a community and to learn things that will assist your missions here on this planet.

You can check out the website, where you can register your interest, and book your spot on the course!

Earth Angel Series Jigsaw

Thanks to the way I write and publish my books (no plotting or planning, and publishing each one as I write them) the sequence of the books and the way they fit together is quite interesting. To explain this, I created this graphic:

But to try to make things a little clearer, I have created the video below, explaining the sequence of the books in the series. Enjoy!

Back to School

Or rather, back to business! After a rather slow August, in terms of getting anything done, there is a definite feeling of really getting down to business this morning! Got up at literally the crack of dawn, and have already designed a flier, written a thousand words, made biscuits, created vouchers, sent some invoices and done the washing up.

It’s only 10am.

If I did this every day, I would really be on fire! Thing is though, I’m not normally an early bird, I’m very much a night owl, so this is a rarity, but I am going to make the most of it!

So, the reason for bothering you on this beautiful September’s day? To let you know that I will be offering Oracle Readings at two of my favourite venues – Peace of Stone in Monmouth and Zenith in Leominster. The first one day is in Peace of Stone, this coming Saturday, the 12th. I will be available for readings between 11am and 4.30pm. Then on the 21st September, I’m headed to Zenith in Leominster, where I will be offering readings all day and then doing a talk in the evening.

The final date in September is Saturday the 26th, back in Peace of Stone. I plan to do some dates in October too, to celebrate the release of The Twin Flame Resurrection (release date will be announced this week along with the cover reveal!) There is also something else that’s very exciting happening in October… will write a post all about it this week too! (Apologies for overuse of exclamation marks, can you tell how excited I am and how much chocolate I’ve already eaten today??)

To be a Writer…

Last week I bought a copy of The Big Leap on my Kindle, by Gay Hendricks. The book set off a stream of ‘aha’ moments and huge realisations, most of which I still haven’t quite figured out what to do with yet!

There are so many amazing parts to the book, to try to describe them here wouldn’t work, I recommend grabbing yourself a copy and seeing for yourself. But there is one thing that I wanted to share, that I realised from reading the book, because it may well help other writers out there.

Hendricks talks about the four zones that exist, which are the Zone of Incompetence, the Zone of Competence, the Zone of Excellence and the Zone of Genius. He said that a lot of us spend most of our lives in the first three zones, and that it takes a big leap to get into the Zone of Genius. I realised that I have spent most of my life in the Zone of Competence, doing work that anyone could do, but that I was okay at too. I think my Zone of Excellence is when I am helping others with their publishing and social media, or indeed when I am publishing my own work, but it occurred to me that my Zone of Genius is when I write. And not just write anything, when I am writing my novels.

There were three sentences to complete, to really nail down what your Zone of Genius is, and these were my answers:

I’m at my best when… I’m writing.

When I’m at my best, the exact thing I’m doing is… going with the flow and creating.

When I’m doing that, the thing I love most about it is … the magical alchemy of turning words into worlds.

Yes. When those words flowed out of my pen onto the page, a massive grin spread across my face and it hit me squarely in the chest. That was it. My Zone of Genius. I am not a writer, not an author – I am an Alchemist. I take simple, ordinary words, and create entire worlds, people, events and objects. All of which live inside the mind of the reader when they read the books. And one day, will hopefully be portrayed on a big screen.


It was a revelation to me, that what I really loved about writing was not the actual act of it, but the deliciousness of the creation. With just a few taps of the keyboard, I can create life, and I can take it away. I can make someone happy, or make them cry.

I also realised that I had been spending much more time in my Zones of Competence and Incompetence (still terrible at marketing!) than I had in my Zone of Genius. I have so many stories flying around in my mind all shouting to be told, that it seems crazy not to be spending more time in that Zone, doing what I know I do best.

On that note, I am off to write some more of my new book. The Twin Flame Resurrection is in beta reading mode and the cover is being created too, which I am very excited about! Will post the cover reveal very soon. Let me know if you read the big leap, and if you discover your Zone of Genius!


Catching the Hogwarts Express…

It’s September 1st! Time to get to King’s Cross, and run through the wall to Platform 9 3/4 to catch the train to Hogwarts.

Don’t worry, I haven’t completely lost the plot, I promise. I have just decided that as of today, I am going to invite more magic into my life on a daily basis. I have been much more aware of the magical nature of the forest, as I have been seeking out magical things to photograph and post on Instagram, but I think it’s important to bring magic into everything I do. Especially the things that I’m not so fond of doing!

I think that so much more is possible when we are in a state of excitement and enjoyment and feeling like things are magical. More opportunities arrive, things go more smoothly, ideas flow easily and everything just seems like a lot more fun.

Thanks to the dismal British non-summer, I have taken to wearing my extreme-crocheted helmet-hat, which I made the other day. Somehow, knowing I look a little bit silly, brightens my day. (And it has the added bonus of making my partner laugh when he sees me wearing it!)

Yep, I know I look crazy :)

So what do you think? Is it possible to make every day life more magical? Is it possible to bring fun and faerie-silliness into even the most boring of tasks? I would love to know your thoughts!



Just keep writing… Just keep writing…

I love Dory. I have a memory just like her, and I’m excited about her new movie coming out – Finding Dory. But don’t worry this post isn’t about a forgetful blue fish.

Two weeks ago I finished writing my last novel, called The Twin Flame Resurrection, and have since been doing the basic first edit ready to send it out to my beta readers and get feedback before the first main edit. I plan to get it published by October, which is quite a tight deadline, but completely possible.

The Twin Flame Resurrection

But just to make things interesting, I have decided to keep writing, and start the next Twin Flame book in the series, tomorrow. I did the same thing last year – within two weeks of finishing The Twin Flame Reunion, I wrote The Twin Flame Retreat, and I wrote it in a crazy two weeks.

After reading a very interesting post by Russell Blake on how to sell loads of books, I was interested to see that his 6th point was to do 25% marketing, and 75% writing. I would say that currently, I have been doing the exact opposite. I market a lot more than I write. And I have decided to change this around.

Also, my numbers for the Earth Angel series have changed. I am now thinking that there is likely to be thirteen books in the series in total, and if I were to stick to my current formula of publishing one Earth Angel book per year, I figure it will be 2023 before the final book is released.

That is just too far away!

So, the only way to increase the number I publish each year and get the series out faster is to write more than I market (and procrastinate). I am also desperate to get writing another trilogy I have in mind and more books in the Visionary Collection. In which case, I really do need to just keep writing.

So there may be a few less blog posts over the coming month again, as I throw myself fully into another novel. I have to admit, I haven’t got a clue what will be happening in this one, which characters will appear, what dramas will unfold or who might not make it to the final page, but I’m excited to be jumping back into that world so quickly, because everything seems to flow so much better when there isn’t too much of a gap in between books.

If you are a fan of the Earth Angel series, and there a character you would like to see featured in the next book, comment below or on Facebook or Twitter. I will see what I can do!
