With everything else going on I need the break. And even though it says the 25th, the first post will be on the 29th. See you then.
see if 1 – the ulcer had gone and 2 – why she wasn’t able to keep her food down
because she’s been vomiting a lot since January.
I op shopped. On Thursday the weather was sunny and warm yet we had a rainbow in the morning. You know the old song, a rainbow at night the Sheppard’s delight, a rainbow in the morning the Sheppard’s warning. Well it didn’t rain even though the rainbow was there.
buckets down and reached about 12 degrees celcius which is freakin’ cold and I
dug my winter woolies out even though it ain’t winter yet. On Saturday it was
sunny once again, Sunday was overcast and cold and it’s been like that since.
Weird shit! One day on, one day off.
the hospital pissing around wasting time and not doing anything about the ulcer
back in February when they found it. Basically, it’s festered. She was admitted
and has had a tube shoved down her nose sucking that shit out since so it’s
just over a week. Today, Friday, she has surgery to hopefully get rid of the
fucking shithead and so I’m not sure when she’s coming home.
holiday. Now this approach worked wonders for me because I had three novellas
to get out and didn’t want to worry about being online and dealing with the
blog and social media.
interruptions. And thankfully, after finishing of the last T.K. Wrathbone
story, Mirror, Mirror on the Wall (now available for pre-sale at Amazon,
Smashwords and Kobo) just days before starting these books, I decided the only
way to get these novellas written was to take time off and write them since I
had planned to start them last December but then mum got sick and my plans got
fucked, so they were pushed back and back and back until April when I finally
fit them into the schedule.
notebooks, a 10 pack of blue pens and a new pack of post it notes.
Many a year ago, in 2006, I decided to write a book called The Road To Vegas. I desperately wanted it to be published and after years of schlepping it around and writing How I Won Lotto in 2008, I knew that I would need an author name, or nom de plume, for writing under, especially when I found out about blogs and decided to start one of those as well.
This blog has changed many times over the years since it’s birth on January 1st, 2009. I didn’t want to blog under my real name, as no one knew that I had written two novels and I wanted to keep that to myself, but I knew I needed to make the website about my books and so it would need to be about my author name as well so I chose one.
For the first three years this blog was a place for me to bitch about everyday life and times and talk about Lol Cats and my favourite things, joke about being married to the gorgeously gorgeous Michael Weatherly and drool over Carmine Giovinazzo. Then, in the third to fourth year, I made small changes. Slowly, simply, no major changes so you still recognised it. Changing the blog title from Bitchfest, to A Bitchfest Lovefest to Lady Jewels Diva over four years or so.
I also knew that my writing was going to be a business all in itself, away from my jewellery business that I also set up in 2008.
I have no idea why or how my muse decided to mess with my head where the names of my two businesses were concerned. It’s just what happened when it popped into our head. I mean my head, lol.
As it turns out I realised it last year, four years in to my business. My name is Tiara King, my jewellery business, which I chose first, is Jewel Divas, and then for some reason, I kept coming back to Jewels Diva for an author name. And then I came up with buying a royal title and trademarking my name for the sake of standing out from the crowd, that gimmick to make me different.
I believe my muse chose those names for a reason. I found out this year I’m either a Taurus with Gemini tendencies, or a Gemini with Taurus tendencies which would explain so much about me and my businesses and why the names arose.
Tiara = Jewel/Jewels, King = Diva/Divas
A weird play on my own name. That’s what my muse did to me, but then I guess I can’t really blame her.
Hell, my name is royal enough as is, but since I’m HUGELY crushing on Gerard Butler at the moment (so you may see some Youtube videos of him in the coming weeks) who’s actually here in Aus filming a movie but sadly nowhere near me, when we get married I’m taking him back to Scotland to buy another set of royal titles and we’ll be Lord and Lady Butler!
We can have our own tv show called Lord and Lady Butler Entertains and have on all of the people he’s ever worked with, and have on all of the actors I’ve ever had a crush on as well. He can sing, we can do skits together and make tv magic together. As well as magic of other kinds of course.
It’s funny, I posted that pic of him years ago in a hot naked men post and now here I am crushing on him so bad. Ohhhhh those short shorts……….no wonder I made the pic as large as I could….you can thank me after having an orgasm….of which I’ve had quite a few…..
Marry me Mr Butler and show me you really do give a damn. Be the Prince Charming who whisks me away on his jet black steed into the sunset of a new life together as I ride away from this shit life I currently live in.
After all, a King does need a Butler to entertain her and do her bidding……
I blogged an update last week about how my novel was going. It’s going well. Last Sunday I wrote 15 and a half pages and yesterday I wrote 24 and a half pages. So part three is nearly done. Then I have to work on part 1.
My e-book is coming long nicely. “Guides to self-publishing and social media” (rough name) is running at 74 pages and is almost complete and I will also be doing three other e-books. Yes, I’m that busy. In fact, I’m that busy I have my next six months planned out and it involves more than writing. I’m considering turning two of my Facebook pages into e-books. Carers need help and support too, and Just Putting it Out There. Details about those two are in my right sidebar.
I’m also working on a fancy collection and e-book about the things I do in my other life which will all be revealed next year. I’ll be doing some blog posts about that and why I waited to reveal things. There are many reasons people keep the things in their life separate. Not being shit all over for it is just one of them.
I’ll be updating about my books until they are released for publishing which will be May 1st 2014.
Yes, you have to wait that long for their debut!
