Improve Your Sleep
My father taught me to never make false promises. If I said I was going to do something, I should. He would be so disappointed in me this weekend. This is why: Continue reading
I have started about three of four blog posts of the past few days, hoping to catch up with you and tell you all about the events from last week and what has been happening this week, to no avail. Sickly sprogs sprouting things that they shouldn’t, time turning the crank and speeding up every moment, my to-do list growing by the second – the cards were against me writing to you until now. Exhaustion is not an option as there is still so much to do and so little time. Continue reading
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.”– JM Barrie, Peter Pan Hello everyone! This week I’m thrilled to bring you one of my favorite children’s authors, Eloise De Sousa. I asked her to pick a few questions from my huge list HERE, so we could get…

In Nightmareland, the cost of which
Will be … your sleep.

I’m over at Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore today. Come on over and take a look around.
This week my guest is Eloise De Sousawho will be sharing a short excerpt from her latest children’s book, Space Dust, that I reviewed a few weeks ago
Before we meet Eloise and discover which questions she has opted to respond to… here is a little bit about her.
Finding heroes and villains is easy – capturing their essence in a story is harder.
Eloise thrives on creating characters that make you want to reach into the book and shake them, hug them or arrest them. Her children’s books follow real life trends told through easy stories that face bullying or social issues which open children’s minds to the opportunity to question the world around them.
With the few books written thus far, Eloise plans to capture more villains and weave more tales to inspire or frighten her readers (whichever is appropriate!). She will be publishing a few…

For authors considering live interviews across the media, this is a great source of information to prepare properly.
I was very lucky to be a radio and television presenter from 2004 – 2012 and in that time I interviewed many authors about their books. The key to an interesting interview for the listeners or viewers is in preparation and research, not just by the presenter but by the author too.

Wonderful news, your hard work in promoting your new book on social media and locally has paid off and you get the call or email. An invitation to do an interview on a radio station, television show or author promoting podcast.

What does it mean when someone calls you a weirdo?
If you describe someone as a weirdo, you disapprove of them because they behave in an unusual way that you find difficult to understand or accept.
Well, some people may feel that way, but this is not my definition of a weirdo. In this day and age, it’s weird for someone to be their genuine self. It’s strange to speak your mind, regardless of others’ opinions. In these times, when so many people pop pills in order not to feel, it’s strange for someone to wear his or her emotions on their sleeve. I like weirdos.
