Building Your Platform – the BuJo Way! (First ever video!!)

Every month, I send out one free Bullet Journal spread to those on my mailing list. For March I’m giving them not one, not two but six (!) spreads to help plan, organise and improve their Author Platforms. However, the spreads are perfect for any creative entrepreneur wishing to review and improve their platforms.

To help introduce them, I have created a video (my first proper one!)

If you’re interested in receiving this month’s free spreads, as well as future ones, please sign up here.

Happy Bujo Day!

At the beginning of each month, I gift those on my Bullet Journal mailing list a free Bujo spread. Although they are created with authors primarily in mind, this month’s could be used by anyone keen on reviewing, revamping and developing their existing websites. Particularly creative entrepreneurs.

As “building my Author Platform” is one of my goals for 2019, I have filled my spread with notes and ideas garnered from YouTube videos and am slowly implementing these on my own site. I’ve found it great to have everything stored in the one place, and love how organised I feel (now the use of the word ‘feel’!) It also looks awesome, so pleased with how the graffiti lettering turned out.

If you don’t bullet journal, I would highly recommend it. I am new to the whole Bujo thing (found out about it Autumn 2018), but I quickly saw how beneficial they can be in helping you plan and organise yourself and your business. Plus it gives me the excuse to draw! I now create them for authors.

Happy bujoing!

One or two?

The KeyMaster has two protagonists, in my eyes. Some might say Erica is more prominent than Michael, but to me they are equal. Without either, The KeyMaster would be incomplete. Allow me to introduce them.

Michael Nicholas is a Victorian gentleman, so a few of his flaws stem from his upbringing: his serious nature, quiet and reluctance to voice his opinions directly. His younger years were spent in slavery and were, understandably, extremely tumultuous so he avoids speaking of them if he can, but they have left scars. He thinks little of him and his worth.

Erica Shylocke is from modern times and is sometimes a bit brash and hasty in what she says and does, especially if faced with uncontrollable situations. She can be quite headstrong and has a vision of her future. She has always been considered a bit weird and has been an outsider throughout school, so isn’t used to opening up. She has a secret that few would react well to and naturally avoids.

9th August: Book Lover’s Day

I love books. I was brought up surrounded by all manner of books and many of my early memories involve a book in some form or other. I remember relishing bedtime stories (Though I was always a bit of a wuss with Roald Dahl’s books, especially The Witches – gave me nightmares for days that one) I remember my neck ache as I sat on my bed, hunched over Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, which I devoured in a day – I just couldn’t put it down! And I love my Manga: Nausicรคa, Gunsmith Cats, Ghost in the Shell.

Which is probably why writing’s ended up being such a passion of mine and why I’ve ended up writing The KeyMaster.

So, to celebrate Book Lover’s Day I thought to let you have a sneak peek at the two (yes two!) prequels that I’m working on. Their working titles are Christian Blake II: The Makings of a Soul Gatherer and Isambard’s Heir: Michael Nicholas.

Happy Book Lover’s Day!

NB: These will only be made available for free to those who have signed up to my mailing list. Interested? Then sign up!
