Game On Blog Tour Day 9 - Missing Sleep!

I have recently been struck by the insomnia monster. I honestly cannot remember the last time I had a full night's sleep and I am wilting - badly! Hopefully tonight will be the night, but I am still feeling somewhat sluggish today so if I'm not getting to comments as quickly, that's why. (Sorry!)

Before I get onto blog tour stuff, I have some congratulations! The beautiful and uber talented Kelley Lynn and Jenny Morris revealed that they now have representation for their collaboration Already There! This follows Kelley's recent super news that her book Fraction Of Stone was picked up by Sapphire Star Publishing. I absolutely love these girls, they are both so supportive of other writers, and always give fab advice - I couldn't be happier for them! :D

Now - onto today's blog tour stops! There are four today - but don't let that put you off because they are all awesome! The posts take a (mostly) more serious turn today, so be sure to take a look.

I am with Jeff Hargett as part of his "August Is Awesome" fest, where he highlights some super cool writers! I talk about my decision to self-publish. 

I'll also be with Mr. WRiTE CLUB, D.L Hammons, to explain what I've learned about writing since I've been blogging.

The supremely brilliant Angela Cothran interviewed me about Game On, life in England and other things - plus, you don't want to miss the most ridiculous photo of me ever to leave the confines of my laptop!

And finally, Madeleine Maddocks - a fellow South West of England writer - has a Game On Shoutout!

Thanks again to all of you for the enormous support - I still can't believe this is actually happening to me lol! <3 br="br">

  7. Big congrats to Kelley and Jenny! Way to go. I love to hear good news happening to good people in the writing world!

    I suffer from some serious insomnia and it's no fun, so I can relate. I'll bet you'll be ok and back to normal, just as soon as life calms down around you a bit and your mind can rest. Chin up.

  14. I read your interview with Angela and I thought it was great; I left a comment there too. Sorry about the insomnia. A friend once told me that she tried taking deep breaths, all the way down to her toes; it helped relax her. And try to avoid chocolate and other stuff with caffeine in it at night.
