I did a new interview recently that went live today. Author Jennifer Loiske interviewed me for her 7 Minutes blog.
Thank you so much Jennifer for great questions.
Yesterday, I decided in a moment of madness to splash out on a set of new fingernails. Now, I’m a total nail virgin so this was all new to me. I’ve thought about it many times but never taken the plunge but after talking with a friend about her experiences with them, I decided to do it. A lovely gal named Kate came to my flat and did them. We chatted all the way through and she explained everything to me.
They look lovely and for the first time in my life I like the way my nails look. I went for the typical french manicure look and I’m very pleased. The downside is that I now feel like an amputee who’s just received new false hands and has to learn to manipulate them. Boy is it hard to work these things or what?
Typing is difficult as the nails, being longer than my own, get in the way so I’m having to learn to type using the ball of my finger tips and not the tips, as is normal. I was trained to type properly and can normally go pretty fast but now I’m slow and clumsy. You just don’t realise how important fingernails are until they get in the way. Other girls on facebook have promised I’ll get used to them and I’m hoping for that as I do love the way they look. On a brighter note, picking my nose and scratching my ass are going to be a walk in the park..!
I was invited to do two guest blogs recently. One for April 18th and the other for May 23rd. The first is about world building for space opera writers and offers simple tips to make your universes both plausible and unique. I haven’t decided what to write about in the May post yet but I’ll be posting the links when they go live.
I uploaded two of my covers to the Authors.com cover contest today in a fit of madness. They have to be approved first though, before they go live for folks to vote on, which seems odd to me. It’s a contest where the public vote for their favourites so why the hell do they need to be approved by some faceless admin first? Oh well, I’ll post if and when they go live and beg shamelessly for your votes.
In the meantime, hop along via the link above and read my interview with Jennifer at her 7 Minutes blog.
