Old habits die hard.

The fact that two of my friends seem not to be talking to me shouldn’t bother me but because of past experiences I’m running through everything I’ve ever done in my head -_-

So first super excited because Bon Voyage is being published in 25 days!!

Second, I’m currently working on Paperhouse a lot more than others, I’m hoping for it to be published in September. I’m also working on Casey a lot which will be published on the 20th November.

Recent discovery of mine..

I discovered on Saturday morning (Around 8am) that I wasn’t used to having friends that were not needy in the slightest!

We had a sleepover (it was amazing) but a week or two before I hadn’t gone to a party held by another member of the class, now if this was any other friend of my friends they’d be upset with me (I left them sort of thing) but this group of people didn’t care in the slightest! And my god I’ve needed friends like these for years!

Now I pretty much know none of them read my blog (or maybe one does, hm) but I’d like to say, thanks for not being needy ;)

Curiousity about Collabation

Art of Beathing

So I finished T.J. Klunes latest in the Bear, Otter and the Kid (BOATK) – The Art of Breathing at an impressive 04:55am this morning and I was thinking, in this book (this book is f–king amazing) but within this book T.J. mixes two of his books (obviously this one and another brilliant book by T.J. called Tell Me It’s Real) now I love this author, no word of a lie, every book of his I’ve read has blown me away but I was curious as to how people react to this, I know as a writer that I love to indulge myself in mixing my characters (Mr Elliot appearing in the beginning of Casey, Daniel Bussel’s makeup designer being Elliot from Pink is for Boys) but there was 2 chapters of this mix up and I was wondering completely whether people like it?

I know I indulge in cross overs and I don’t doubt that T.J. fully enjoyed mixing up his characters and having them meet but as I was reading it I was just wondering about it, of course I got all the little references, I got when they mentioned Wheels the dog, when Darren as brought up but that’s because I’ve read Tell Me it’s Real, I have to wonder how much the people who haven’t read TMIR and read BOATK  would appreciate those little extras etc.

Just a thought of course and I’d be interested to hear people’s views!

Does this just annoy me

20140615-235436-86076165.jpg

So I’ve wrote a fair few books, in my first few I tried my hardest to think of alternatives to said, I’m pretty sure in the entire books it never said said or and once because I was too scared to use them because of my English lessons.

3 years on I’m not afraid to use the word said, sometimes it’s just easier having a character lecture, laugh, shout, whisper and tease all on one page is a bit excessive but a character can say many things.

I don’t know, this could just be me and I’d be intrigued to hear fellow authors/readers opinions on the SAID.
