MBS Festival Birmingham

Unicorn & meHad a wonderful time at the MBS Festival in Birmingham last weekend! It was a very busy three days, and I loved chatting to fellow Earth Angels and Unicorn Seekers! Lots of Unicorn books were re-homed, and will hopefully inspire people to follow their passions. I still have a few Unicorn books left in stock, so if you would like a signed, pocket-sized copy, then visit my website and click on the Paypal button.

What I loved most about the festival was seeing the smiles on people faces when they saw the title of the book. A few people who offended by the profanity, but on the whole, something about it resonated with many people!

There was a prize draw for signing up to my mailing list, which was won by Georgia Wyldbore.

I didn’t have time to attend any of the workshops, but I did manage to enjoy getting my own wings, and chat with an awesome Earth Angel I met on FB.

I also met a wonderful Earth Angel who had begun a community called The Soul Train, for people who are separated from their Twin Flames and soulmates. As well as the online community, there is going to be a Retreat in March too. Please do check out them out!

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!

 

 

 

 

Twin Flame Retreat Launches

On Saturday the 25th April, I was in Peace of Stone in Monmouth all day offering Oracle Card readings. I met some lovely new Earth Angels, and was pleased to see some who had attended the talk at Harts Barn! Have had some wonderful feedback so far and am pleased to have helped. Sold a few copies of the new book, and caught up with my lovely Faerie friend, Niki, before I leave for Scotland.

Fun-loving Earth Angels!

My beautiful Angel friend and editor, Liz Lockwood, also joined me for the day, and it was brilliant to have a good catch up and to present her with a signed copy of the book that she now jointly owns the copyright of.

Then yesterday I spent the day and evening in Zenith in Leominster. I did several Oracle Card readings, met some wonderful Earth Angels and then had a fantastic evening chatting about Twin Flames. One lady who had a reading with me in March has now read all of the books in the Earth Angel series! I said I’d better get on with the next one!

 

 

All in all, I’ve had a great time this month launching my new book, and have had some great reviews and thoughts on it so far.  The biggest question I’ve had so far is ‘When is the next one being released?!’

I promise I will let you know the answer to that as soon as I know!

A huge thank you to everyone who has hosted me this month, I really appreciate it.

The Twin Flame Retreat is Now Available!

You can now purchase your copy of The Twin Flame Retreat on Amazon! It’s available on Kindle and in paperback, and I’ve signed it up to Matchbook – so if you buy the paperback directly from Amazon, you can download the Kindle version for free!

Just today I have taken delivery of the first printing of the new book and the copies look awesome:

book 2

I am celebrating the official release on the 25th April by doing Oracle Readings in Peace of Stone in Monmouth between 11am and 5pm, and then will be talking about Earth Angels and Twin Flames and having some nibbles in the evening! I am very excited because my incredible editor and friend Liz Lockwood will be there! For those of you who have read the books so far, she is very much the Angel called Beryl, who is a main character called Beatrice in The Twin Flame Retreat!

All the details of the launch event are on the poster:

New Cover Reveal!!

I know I have been very quiet lately, and I do apologise – things have been so busy! And April looks to be even busier, because I plan to release my latest book – The Twin Flame Retreat – on the 25th April! (Hopefully in both paperback and Kindle on that date). This new book is the direct sequel to The Twin Flame Reunion, and follows five new characters as they meet their Twin Flames.

My incredible amazing sister, the genius behind madappledesigns, has worked her magic again and has created the new cover, which I am so excited to share with you! Are you ready? Drum roll please!

And because she is just that awesome, Liz has created the 3D version of the cover, which I must admit, made me squeal like a very happy Faerie!

Isn’t it beautiful? I cannot wait for you to read it! I have really enjoyed writing and creating this latest instalment to the series, and going by the beta feedback so far, I think everyone will enjoy it!

I will post updates on how the publishing is going throughout April!

 

P.S. Apologies for the excessive exclamation marks, I’m a bit excited 🙂

Earth Angel Series Kindle Boxset!

As I work like crazy to get The Twin Flame Reunion ready for sale, with the help of the fabulous madappledesigns, I have just released the Earth Angel Series Boxset on Kindle. The boxset contains the first three books in the Earth Angel series and is cheaper than buying the three books separately on Kindle!

Earth Angel Boxset

I wanted to release the boxset to encourage anyone who was interested in reading The Twin Flame Reunion of read those books first, so that they know who the characters are and what is happening in the point just before the book begins. To make it clearer how the books fit together (because they are not particularly sequential, I have put together a little graphic below!

 

 

 

The Twin Flame Reunion

 

 

 

 

 

You can pre-order The Twin Flame Reunion on Amazon, and as those who follow my blog and Facebook know, I have just taken part in Nanowrimo, and completed the next novel in the series, which is to be titled The Twin Flame Retreat. So if you are just getting into the Earth Angel Series, the latest book will be ready in the new year, probably in February.

 

 

 

 

I hope this little graphic helps to make the structure of the series a bit clearer! It’s become a bit of a jigsaw puzzle…
