Hope that title got your attention! : )
Stephanie at Bah to Cancer has just announced a wonderful initiative where, for a £2 donation to a cancer charity, you have the chance to win loads of wonderful books. Head over to check it out, along with some great author interviews. Stephanie's defeated breast cancer and a she's brilliant blogger, too.
Update: Stephanie has just told me the contest is open to non-UK residents, too.
Next up, the wonderful Kim Franklin and TJ Carson tagged me with this and it looked so fun I couldn't wait to do it!
Question 1: Where were you 5 years ago?
Teaching hooligans in a local comprehensive
Trying not to become an alcoholic by drowning my sorrows each evening
Trying to write each evening but failing miserably
Desperate for sleep!
Question 2: Where would you like to be 5 years from now?
Still in London
With an extra wardrobe so I don't need to rotate my clothes every month!
I'd love to have a cat for added writing distraction
On the Times bestseller list (one can dream, right?)
(This probably doesn't count because it's not for me, but I'd love my for husband's first film to still be released and playing regularly in cinemas around the world!)
Question 3: What is (was) your to-do list today?
Ugh, do you really want to know?
Outline new idea
Talk to publisher re: launch activities for my non-fiction title next week
Write a pitch for media
Blog and check out other blogs
Drink wine and eat! (OK, it's not on my to-do list but it should be!)
Question 4: What 5 snacks do you enjoy?
Question 5: What 5 things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Do loads of print runs for my books, then buy them all so I could make the bestsellers list!
Make a cupcake a day mandatory for all schools
Make books out of candy so kids want to read more
Buy my own vineyard in France
Seriously: I'd love to introduce more literary schemes to help improve children's reading skills
Now I'm supposed to tag five people:
