Show me your desk: casio job, drawing project, mr sheet and a whole of junk on my desk.

I'm in the midst of tidying up so the desk is a more cluttered compared to normal. Starting on the lower left hand side and working clockwise, is my calculator. It's a casio job and solar powered. This has seen me through a flurry of professional exams.

Next to that is How To Draw Anything by Mark Liney. This is my next drawing project. I am to draw all the 260 drawings in it. I've already done about 48 or so, and I'm looking to complete it sometime this year. It's part of my goal planning practice.

After that is my dairy - I had to get one for work as it's a pretty meeting-rich environment. No, electronic calendars don't quite do the job.  Under that is a copy of the latest UK Cosmopolitan magazine. It's been reduced to a pound but the paper quality is also poorer, not the nice glossy paper. I guess it feels more like the stuff used in American magazines. Under that is a notebook. Next to pile is a bottle of castor oil for my hair.

Something that hasn't moved is the index cards of my story, I shall be using them this week.  I have a canister of Mr Sheen surface spray for cleaning. Then my desk lamp and speakers. One of the volume tabs have broken off. It's supposed to be a pig.

The pile of black books are freebies from Kaplan Connects. I did my final paper with Kaplan and they decided to launch a network with a series of lectures,  but I don't think much happened with it so it no longer exists. It reminds me to think of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) so I don't get behind. I probably need to set aside time, but they are super expensive. A long time ago these events were free, now it's either expensive and ONLINE, so you don't even get a free lunch. Don't get me started on professional bodies.

Finally is the red notebook where I just write stuff. It's a semi-journal, semi-rant, semi-story idea book.

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


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.
