June Update - Novel-In-Progress, Reading books, The curious case of Mister Big Man

Another update, yay! I hope everyone is keeping well.

Novel In Progress

It seems I write an average of 10,000 words a month so I'm estimating another 40,000 words. This means I'm looking at an October finish. Let's make that November.

It's going okay and a bit slow because I'm also doing some research so that slows down the pace. Saying this, I'm glad I'm past the midpoint and heading to the first crisis point.

I had no real time for this. 


I'm doing a YA Fantasy reading tour and up to now have read about five. They all tend to have the same baseline story and characters. I have plenty of books-in-the-pipeline and it is only after finishing the current one will I review the others. 

A lot time ago, I did a children writing course so maybe this might be something I could do. 

The curious case of Mister Big Man

Save your self image

This is messy it is what it is. Mister Big Man knows everything but really knows nothing and opines at lot about stuff just to hear his own voice. Once in a while, he gets verbally slapped back, and in those cases, Mister Big Man cowers into a virtual corner and is very appologetic. He is one of those who rub folks or maybe just me, up the wrong way with his behaviour.

At first, Mister Big Man seems he's talking sense but on examination he's talking out of his behind. Gas. Pure gas in a crowded elevator or lift.

However it is the way of the internet so one keeps out of people's way least be called a 'hater'. A long time ago, you could point things out, or 'call them out' but now but now it will be like you are affecting their 'mental health'. And with age and maturity one asks doe it really matter?

Does it really matter Mister Big Man is full of nonsense, and an egotistic numbskull? He's not urinating on my parade, and though at times (to be fair most of the time) can be irksome and annoying, I'm not the one looking the fool. I'm not the emperor viturally walking butt naked, thinking I'm all that.

So it really doesn't concern me. People talk nonsense all the time, and they have enablers who hang on every word they say. It does make me think, perhaps it's a generational and cultural thing. Perhaps I don't understand how some may consider Mister Big Man's gas to be the scent of roses. I must be missing the point. Who knows?

Then again I have to ask why does Mister Big Man evoke that feeling in me?

Then I thought maybe Mister Big Man is just an inner representation of myself. Maybe he is reflecting what I don't like about me, so it evokes a reaction. Then again maybe Mister Big Man is just an annoying man. There is no point in analysing this, he could be just one of those annoying people.

Till next month, take care and keep safe.

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.
