What better excuse to start blogging than the paperback release of Nothing Like You?! Hello, Paperback! In stores today! Happy birthday, book! Again!
So! What to expect from me blogging? Posts about writing, the process, the thrills and spills of publication? Long, thoughtful essays on essay-ish topics?? Photos of food, stray cats, blades of grass??
No. No. And possibly!
Look to this blog for a wee window into my non-writing life! Discover just how shallow i really am! Books aside, what do i love? Clothes! I will bore you with endless photos of clog platforms and vintage 90s florals. And television! Perhaps, in future posts, i’ll talk about my psycho obsession with Kara “Starbuck” Thrace from Battlestar Galactica, or how Effy Stonem from the British TV series Skins inspires me to line my eyes with kohl, wear black, not talk, behave insanely, and stay out all night.
So much to look forward to, reader (okay, who, truly, is reading this blog? My dad? An ex-best friend??! Some boy i adored many years ago, who, crippled by anxiety and shyness, couldn’t bring himself to love me back?? Hello, ol’ friend! Enjoy! I’ll probably embarrass myself on a weekly basis).
So! In honor of me blogging & the paperback release of my book and all that, i’m giving away two signed copies of Nothing Like You! If you want one, leave a comment with your email addy below, & next Tuesday, the 10th, I will pick two winners at random.
Leaving you with the promo clip from Skins series 4, because i mentioned it earlier and because this show makes me want to scream and tear out my hair, it’s so good. The track is ‘I Knew’ by Lightening Dust. Wunderbar.
