What a month! We’re only ten days in, and so far it is shaping up to be one of the busiest months of the year so far! Which when you consider how full my diary was for January and February, that’s saying something. I’m not sure I’ve stopped all week this week, and it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. But on the plus side, there are lots of exciting things happening.
One of the biggest things that’s happening this month is my exam for college. It’s my last one at A Level, and after this I’ll have both English Language and English Literature under my belt. I was considering doing psychology, but they stopped offering it at the college, so that’s not going to happen unfortunately. However, university is going well, now that I worked out how to submit my assignments and got the right one! It is going to take me a lot longer to complete my degree than I originally hoped, but when I started it I didn’t have any contracts for publishing, and things have changed now.
Another thing that’s happening this month is the Hartlepool Mail Health Care Awards. You may remember that some very kind soul nominated me for a Carer award for looking after my husband, well, I got a call the other day about the black tie event. It’s on the 22nd, and I have the dress, have booked myself in to get my hair, and will have my nails done for the first time since I got married some ten years ago. I have no idea who won what, but I have been invited to the event, so I have at least been shortlisted. Whatever happens on the night, I am going to enjoy myself immensely and take an obscene amount of photos.
Consequences is moving along nicely now, too. It is with the design department at the moment, so there should be a cover very soon! I shall be announcing that as soon as I have it, and it will be added to the trailer, which you can view here.
Lastly, but by no means least, I am having my first ever interview this weekend. I received a very nice DM on Twitter from the National Association of Writers in Education, Young Writer's Hub, and it was asking me if they could interview me about my upcoming book. So of course I said yes, jumped around the house for a few minutes, and then got all excited. I’ll be posting links and things on Twitter and Facebook once I have them, so keep an eye out!
