Waves Of Broken Dreams And Other Poems

I just published my latest poetry collection. It's called "Waves Of Broken Dreams And Other Poems" and can be found on Smashwords in all formats they offer.

Here's the synopsis:

"A collection of poems of various styles and lengths, which are about heartache, loss, pain, and broken dreams."

It's only on Smashwords at the moment, but will be distributed to other retailers as soon as it's approved for premium status.

Hastings Pirate Day 2013

Today was 2013's Hastings Pirate Day.

Kelly, Kero and I were going to go, but it's still so hot! I think it's supposed to have been the hottest day of the year so far today... Sure felt like it!

Kelly went and got some photos for me again and says it was fantastic.

Wish I could see the photos.

Better yet, I wish I could have gone with him!

At least this time he brought a present home for me: a pirate goblet. It's really cool! It's plastic but carved to almost feel like it has the grainy effect of wood,, and it has a skull and crossbones on it, which is tactile so I can actually feel it!

St Leonards Festival 2013

Today was the St Leonards festival.

I was meant to go - Kelly, Kero and I were going to go together - but it was so hot that it wouldn't have been fair on Kero. It's been VERY hot this Summer, and between the heat and the crowds... Well, like I said, it wouldn't have been fair on Kero.

I wish I had gone though.

I miss going out places, and it sounds like it was fun.

Kelly got photos for me, but now that I can't see that doesn't mean much.

Plus, that doesn't change the fact that I was stuck indoors...

This is not a menu (kinda FD)

You're not seeing things. This is not a menu. There's no mention of chips and cheese or any of the other meals I've been enjoying. Nope... This is not a menu!

There's no menu today, because I didn't write one.

The idea of the menu was to help me figure out what we were having for the week, but after the first couple of days of each week I was finding I didn't fancy what I was meant to have so I was having something else. Either that, or we'd end up doing something that meant we either couldn't be bothered to cook or had less thime than planned (partially due to my very annoying irregular sleeping pattern).

So I'm not writing a menu now. We'll just have to figure it out as we go... That's what we were doing most of the time anyway, LOL!

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Menu: July 9th 2013 - July 15th 2013 (FD)

Tuesday: Cheese sandwiches.

Wednesday: Egg and chips.

Thursday: Bubble and squeak (potatoes and cabbage).

Friday: Leftover bubble and squeak.

Saturday: Food from the festival.

Sunday: Pasta with sauce.

Monday: potato wedges with sauce.

St Michael's coffee morning (FD)

Kelly, Kero and I went to the coffee morning at St Michael's Hospice yesterday as it's just up the road from us and they allow Kero to come in. Plus, all money raised goes to help the hospice.

We had a little look around, had a cup of drink (tea for me, coffee for Kelly and water for Kero) and a snack of cheese scones and fairy cakes.

It was nice; I liked being out!

No longer publishing direct to Amazon

Due to navigation issues, I'm no longer publishing directly to Amazon.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this causes people buying my books, but I feel it's the best choice for me.

My books are available in all formats Smashwords offers, so they are still available for you to read on your Kindle if that's your prefered way to read ebooks. Smashwords even gives instructions on how to get your books on to your eReader (if you need them).

Also, Smashwords does distribute to Amazon... Assuming Amazon feels I've sold enough books to be worthy of acceptance by them.

A-Z character challenge

There's another "A-Z" type reading challenge on one of the groups I'm a member of on Goodreads. This one is a character challenge though. You have to read books with a character in them for each of the letters of the alphabet. I don't mean read a single book with all the alphabet full of characters in, obviously, but read books until you've read about a character with a name starting with each of the letters of the alphabet.

Anyway, I finished my list earlier, so here it is:

A - Alex (Noah's Ark)
B - Bonnie (Queen Rider)
C - Catherine (Catherine's Tale: Love, Loss, Lust And Lies)
D - Dazz (Ice Country)
E - Ella (The Encounter)
F - Felix (Phoenix Watching)
G - Gandalf (The Lord Of The rings)
H - Hemingway (Blue Hearts Of Mars)
I - Ivy (Every Which Way But Dead)
J - James (A Class Apart)
