Happy New Year! On an Internet Detox regime.

Happy New Year, and wishing everyone the best!

I had a great Christmas and New Year with friends and family. I even baked a carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Yum. It's kinda put me off cakes because it was so rich. I've decided to go to Weight-watchers next week and sign up for three months. And for the next few weeks, I've decided to cut down using the internet at home.

Yes, I discovered a lot of my time is online - checking emails, social media, researching  and procrastinating. So after various attempts to stop, I decided the best way was to remove my router and it to Momma AG to keep. It was hard. I replugged the router back four times and went surfing until I decided enough was enough.

It's not that harsh since I have access at work, my local cafe & pub and the public library. Those are manageable. The crutch came when I was doing a critique for a story on the online workshop I belong to and found I'd been on line for five hours. Five hours?

Not bad but I couldn't sleep so I work up at 4.00am since I'm an early riser and logged on. Worse thing was that I never posted the critique. After all that time I decided not it, mostly because the critique was more a philosophical debate than anything else.

It is very hard because I feel as if something is missing, I feel I am missing out. The fear of missing out. The positive thing is that I'm sleeping better since I don't have anything to keep me wired just before I go to bed. I can focus better on other computer tasks and not get distracted. So more productivity!

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

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

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.
