Hobbles and my day and pictures of yummy cake. A chat about CDs vs digital tunes.

I work up super-early looking at my novel and trying to write the end. Then I dragged myself out of bed, showered and found a library book which had been missing. However the worse thing was I forgot to renew my library books so I got fined.

I still want to know why the council can't send alerts for renewal. I bet fines are a income source in their accounts. Went to visit the new Waitrose in Kings Cross. It's very flash. Posh but doesn't have much in it. What I mean is that you can't do  real shop for food. It's kinda like a flagship window display. I'd say my local one has more variety in terms of shopping for families.

However it had a brilliant bakery, the cook school is located there and a juice bar. I'm not sure the target market however my local Waitrose shall not be losing me to it.

Next thing was I was pondering about the advice given in the self-publishing conference and the best way to go marketing one's self. I think I need to focus on the things I like.

Mainly food, talking about food, taking pictures, a bit of drawing and other odds and ends. Not sure yet. Will see. I like taking pictures of cakes and food in general.



This was at afternoon tea at Sketchies off Regent's Street, a send off present from my colleagues at my former place of work. I had a fabulous time because I saved it to celebrate a special occasion.


This is a Chinese cream sponge cake. I get this for every birthday.  I just love it!


This was a delicious looking red velvet cake however was too stale so I returned it. It was sold in one of those trendy cinema bars (which shall remain nameless) and just didn't justify the price. I think because they wanted to be trendy the kept the cakes out which made them stale very quickly. Haven't been back since.

Back to my day. Bought a nice slice of chocolate cake from the new Waitrose - my phone went flat so no pictures. Shared that with family. Family gave me a new CD player. Yes, I'm still using CDs - they are master copies, according to Sharon Osbourne and don't get corrupted or deleted in error. I'd rather by a CD than an iTunes MP3. I do buy MP3s but only for singles.

The problem is when one changes or upgrades devices or open new accounts. It's hard to keep track. Give me CDs any day. I even have some records vinyl knocking about. Digital gets corrupted. I know  CDs get scratched as well. Anyway people do what they want.

However I do like ebooks - I have many - I buy many  however for technical books if I really use them, I get the print version. I know. I know. I know. I need to get with the times.

That's it.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
