My Book Writing

Hey Guys,

 

Today I am writing about my short story writings I was asked but Melissa how is a friend blooger if I could talk about my book writing so I agreed I am currently writing four books the reason why I am is because writing is because I want to be a author lots of publishers have asked if they could get samples of my books to see if its publish worthy which made shocked I didn’t know I was that good but they loved the first chapter of ​The curse of the heartless soul my short story  which I dies after reading the witches kiss by Elizabeth corr and Katherine corr the idea popped into my head and I though I’d share it with you guys.

After you read it you requested more chapters so I did a second chapter The curse of the heartless soul Chapter 2  which was terrible my friend said for me to redo that chapter she liked my idea of her not knowing when I was talking to her about it since then I have redone the chapter and did a third chapter which she loved and wished that I could have written the whole book now the publishers are really wanting me to give them the sample but I want to continue writing this book and publishes chapters for advice.

The next book I am writing is becoming Popular Project it’s about a girl called Andy she’s what people would call Nerd and it’s about her doing an assignment about becoming Popular for an A* to get the grade she makes a deal with the queen bees boyfriend she does helps him with science and he helps her become popular the more they get to know each other will they fall in love…..

And I am also writing a sequel becoming a Nerd which I not going to explain because it will spoil the first book but it about the queen bee so you can quess what it’s about my friend read both versions and she said she loved the second book more I am planning to but the first chapter on my blog.

The thrid book I am currently writing is Fae falling for a mortal  I got this idea when I was watching clips of west side story which is a strange its not the same thing but the forbidden love being to different kinds Eldima the princess fae goes to the mortal realm to teach her cousins the fae ways until she meets Luke a mortal she was taught to fear and hate goes against everything she was told can she stop herself from falling the enemy.
Last book will be Emily Rosa (Protecting humanity from Robots #1)  I know what you are thinking terminator no just a coincidence my friend wanted me to right a book about cyborgs to help her get some ideas for her essay she didn’t end up doing it for her class it was kind of hard but I thought what would it be to be half human having feelings and know your a monster and I just started typing and thought I’d post it here to see if it was worth carrying on but I thought why not.
 I hope you guys like these stories let me know if you want me to post more if there are other genre’s you want me to write I have to wattpad accounts Bookfandom1001 and Lolasstories2017.

Happy Reading

1 Year Anniversary of Book BLogging

Hey Guys,

 

So I was currently writing my post for the BookTuberAThon wrap up when WordPress sent me this:

Screenshot_2017-07-30-23-55-04-1I can’t believe it’s been a year since I have been blogging but I am really proud of how many followers I have gotten since my first post I remember posting my first August TBR  2016  looking back at it I am so shock by how much I have improved since then I am titling in bold and adding pictures back then I just wrote it without thinking about it looking good believe it or not after my first post I got three followers.

At that time when I was blogging it was just to express my love of reading and fangirling  back then I didn’t have many book readers and those I did I rarely saw due to being in college and not really talking because they were always busy so I didn’t expect to have as many followers as I do now so thank you for following me and being patient with how long it takes me to post.

 

Apologies:

 

I want to apologies to those fellow bloggers and friends for not answering and doing you books tags you have tagged me in the reason for it is because it didn’t pop up on my notifications which I know isn’t an excuse but I hope you forgive me and continue to tag me in any future book tags and also thank you for those who have if it wasn’t for you guys I wouldn’t have my 182 followers.

also I did a post on bully bookworms which I feel very strong about please do click Discussion on Bulling Bookworms and read it and follow the crusade as one of our fellow book bloggers wrote because it is a serious matter a friend of mine almost stop reading because of it also if you do follow the crusade then write a post about what you think about book bullying in generally day to day reading/blogging and link it below or tag me in the post.

Tags I have created:

 

I made my first ever tag which was  I dare you Book Tag   because I made a tag for my friend Jenny to do for fun and she suggested I put it on my blog which I thought would be fun I even answered the questions once I did them lots of bloggers did my tag and friends then 4 months ago piera forde did my I dare you | book tag which I remember being completely shocked that this tag had been on youtube but then others decided to do my tag and the only problem was no one knew how did it until one of my favourite youtubers Rianna reads did the same named tag which I discussed I Dare you |Book Tag discussion  and just reading it now I can see I wasn’t to happy about it even though I did say I was but now I am completely over it and am happy my first book tag was a success.

 

I link my other tags here:

​Beauty And The Beast / Book Tag

​Blogging advice // Tag //

also let me know if you want me to reanswer them because I would also feel free to answer them and tag me I’d love to see your answers.

 

Also I just want to say thank you to Savannah@TheBookProphet for convicing me to do my blog and for being a good friend and being my first follower I hope you check out her blog her youtube account The Book Prophet youtube channel because she is a great book blogger and tuber she deserves a lot more followers/subscribers than she has and I cant wait to see what future posts/videos she does next.

Hope you enjoyed my post let me know below why you first started blogging if you have ever experienced bookworm bullying because I have also what was your favourite post of mine I’ll be posting my BookTuberAThon and July wrap up tomorrow plus my August tbr until tomorrow.

 

Happy Reading.

Do you get free books? And if so how do you get them?

Hi guys,

So I have been given so many questions and I want to answer them but sometime questions will have there own post and pictures may not be included due to the time I write it like now it’s one in the morning for me.

So here goes,

I do get free ebooks by authors on goodreads, twitter and even instergram since I have to many physical copys and I am moving my room around have a new shelf I need to figure out if I have more room for them.

I am only buying ebooks so if any authors are on this post which I pretty much doubt if you do ebooks I am planning to review them for you.

How long does it take you to read books?

About half a day but since I have been working a lot longer week at most I am shocked on how I am able to review.
How many books do you own? 

104 only doing a quick count but I think I have more once I have put my books on there shelf I will be able to count them.


Have you ever got rid of books?

I did recently to get more which I did but they will be on ebooks if I haven’t posted that I will soon.


What is your favourite book cover of 2017?

Umm all of them (Laughs) honestly I would have to agree with my baby sister when I say a court of mist and fury by Sarah J. Maas her covers are always amazing before you ask I never read her books to my little sister they are kinda new adult I just ask what she thinks of every book cover I buy.


Do you buy books for people?

Totally am am planning to get a book for a family member for there christening soon.


One book you’ve recently found and bought straight?

 Goldenhand (Abhorsen, #5) by  Garth Nix I bought because it was review by three of my favourite authors sarah j. Maas, cassandra claire and leigh bardgo after buying it I realised it was the fifth book in the series and am debatingwhether to read this now or not.

Thank you for asking these questions can’t wait to finish answering the millions of questions I have left (not really millions just being dramatic lol) hoped you enjoyed this post.

Happy Reading 

The curse of the heartless soul Chapter 2 

Those who are new to my blog I have been writting this book due to readingthe witches kiss by Katherine and Elizabeth corra and having the inspiration to write this before you say I am not REPAT not COPY WRITING it’s from my own ideas and I am also using my other book I was writting Faraway ideas click here to see the first chapter.

For those who have read it and request that I posted another chapter I hope the wait was worth it I was struggling to top what I wrote but I knew I had to do her future life and how old she was if she knew she was a witch etc. Let me know below what you thought about this chapter if you want more from it and why also if you would like another chapter. 😉

AND REMEMBER HONEST OPINION!!

Chapter 2:
I woke up sweating and crying out in pain my mum run in my room “Alison are you ok” she was saying in a panic voice she was panic you could tell not only from her voice but her face.
I started to take deep breaths my mum wrap her arms around me as though as she could block what ever it was with her arms “Ali the curse is getting stronger than ever before I am starting to wonder if Matthew is in town triggering you curse I have to keep you here no school a place where I can protect you until you have fully mastered your powers and have protection spells around the house plu-” I smiled knowing she was talking to herself trying to convince herself I was fine here.
“You heard nema we have to live our lives has normal or we can’t control what the future predicts so far we know what he is planning to do we change how we handle things the future will follow and will probably not refill it to us until it’s too late.” She buried her head in my hair “I don’t know what I’d do if anything happened to you.”
I closed my eyes trying to fighting the tears I could feel my my tears falling in my hair like rain drops hitting the pavement “remember past me did this for a reason until I see why we can’t do anything and believe me I definitely would have done it for a good reason.” 

Or at least I hope so.

​Blogging advice // Tag //

My Friend Jenny had ask me questions about blogging and wanted to know a few things before blogging I decided to make a tag out of the questions so other bloggers can answer these questions to new bloggers hopefully help them.

How do you make time to blog?
Depends sometimes I will make a plan on what day to do it or sometimes I’ll just do when I suddenly have time.

Do you regret blogging? 

No never I love blogging

What are the best things about blogging?

Talking about books and reviewing them and also talking to followers about certain bits of the books. 

What are the worst things about blogging?
I would have to say when I dislike a book I hate to think of not liking a book but everyone has a book they are no a big fan of and you have to write why you don’t like but in a nice way because other bloggers can be a big fan of the book you dislike.

What social media do you recommend creating before blogging? 

I recommend Goodreads it’s a way to keep log of what books you read how many you have read each year and also you can write your thoughts and others also helps to recommend books in your favourite genre.

It helped me alot without it I would probably haven’t have had the reviews to start blogging with how many books I have read how many to read and what books to read next.

What do you do if you need help with your post or any future posts?

I post pictures of help on instergram and tell them any issues I need help with or what they would like me to post next to better my blog if you have any advice please do comment below. 👇👇

What is your best post?

I Dare You Book Tag I created 

 Beauty And The Beast /Book Tag/ another I created 

Discussion on Bulling Bookworm’s 

What is your worst post?

6.5/5 stars this has to be my favourite book out of the hole series I’m always finding myself reading this I love how Daemon sits on her table and brings her romantic things what else can a girl want but I hated how Kat was string Blake along that was just mean.
