Never stop believing

Never give up on your dreams, even if they seem so far out of your reach. Take one step at a time and keep doing what you are doing. No mountain is too high to climb. Nothing is unreachable. You will get to where you need to be one day.

As a writer, I still have dreams – to be a better writer, to find a bigger audience, to touch people’s lives.

Just as you will keep going, so will I.

#BelieveInYourself. 💕

New website 

I’ve decided to open a new website. It’s cool, fresh and shows my personality much more.

Check out my sister website here – http://www.michelledianalowe.co.uk.

This website will be running for the next few days until I fully make the transition from this page to my new one.

We all need to make changes in our lives. Today it was time that I did just that.

When was the last time you made over your website? 😊

Our Mental Health Matters (in 2017)

Mental health has never been on par with physical health. This needs to change. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. It always has been, and it always will be.

Some people shy away from talking about how they feel because they are scared of being judged by others. There is no shame in admitting you need help with life’s challenges. Sharing this with a trusted person is a strength, rather than a weakness.

Let’s discard these taboos finally, and talk about what really matters.

Mental health matters. You matter. We all matter.

UnShatter Me – Excerpt

Here is a sneak peak of UnShatter Me. Enjoy!

YOU AGAIN!

The comedy night has started. Whoopie, oh such fun. I do not know why I am subjecting myself to this torture for a second day running. Perhaps this sense of loss inside me is driving me forward, as it longs to be filled, and wants so desperately for me to feel whole again. My aching soul is yearning for progression, change. It wants me to feel human again; breathing, eating, loving, living. It is compelling me to move on, and finally shed the scales of my past. But my head is resistant, and it fights itself in a deadly sea of horror. My brain is slowly sinking, drowning in the yesteryears. I might never recover from that dark period in my life. I am forever tarnished. Forever broken.

As I cautiously approach the food table outside the comedy tent, a place where I can get a well-needed sugar rush, I notice him. Him! That nasty guy from yesterday. What the hell is he doing here? Unexpectedly, our eyes connect. He stares at me, his penetrative eyes pierce straight through me. Interest, rather than hatred is fixed on his face. I shiver, a little unnerved by this guy and his intensity.

Quickly, I turn in the opposite direction and walk briskly towards the field, preparing to escape. A funny feeling grips my stomach all of a sudden. I get the impression that he is following me.

“Let’s start again.” His voice races in my ears.

Annoyed, I spin around. My feet bounce slightly on the grass. “Am I not too English for you today?”

“Sorry about that,” he says, looking down at his feet. “I didn’t mean to offend you.”

“Yes you did,” I answer bitterly, ordering his eyes to look at mine.

“Okay, maybe I did.”

I laugh contemptuously. “So, why are we doing this then?”

“Doing what?”

“Talking. Is there a point?”

“C’mon,” he says, “be civil.”

“Why should I?”

“I’d like to get to know you, okay?”

“Really?” I scowl.

“Erm, well… I’m not used to talking to… posh girls. But I checked your Facebook profile last night, and you seem different, sweet.”

“So now you are stalking me, great! Exactly what I need right now,” I grunt.

“I am not stalking you.”

“Are you saying that to convince yourself, or me?” Rudely, I kiss my teeth.

His eyes narrow, his face scrunching up in anger. I can tell I am pushing his buttons.

Release Day Blitz – Border Lines by L.E. FitzpatrickSynopsis

When the perfect job comes up, Charlie doesn’t think twice about taking it. This is the break he’s been looking for and nobody, not even the rest of his team, can persuade him otherwise.

The job means working for an old enemy and crossing the border into London. Both are risky, but Charlie has no idea how high the stakes really are. The team will have to confront their past, each other and a killer who is closer than they realize. But can they all make it out of the city alive?

“We all remember that kid in Piccadilly. That determined look he had on his face as he willed all those people to him. Just using his mind, he pulled them close then blew them all to pieces. It could be anyone. Your neighbour, your friend, your lover. Remain vigilant. Reachers are everywhere.”

Border Lines is the second book in L.E. Fitzpatrick’s Reachers series.
