What are your long term goals as a writer?

My second novel Broken Roots reached number 25 on the bestsellers list in the Urban Fiction category on Amazon UK. I am so incredibly pleased! It has been my long term goal to make it on a bestsellers list, and now I’ve done it!! I lasted about 8 hours on the list, but boy, did it feel good.

If you are a writer, what long term goals are you working towards? I’d love to hear from you.

Thunderclap Campaign for UnShatter Me

I’m running a Thunderclap campaign to gain more exposure for my novel, UnShatter Me.

Please could you kindly click on the link and show your support.

UnShatter Me tackles some important teen issues, namely young mental health. Please help me get the support I deserve for my book. It needs some love and visibility right now.

Thank you!

Audiobook Teaser 

Here is the audiobook teaser from my novel UnShatter Me, created by New York voiceover artist, Karen Cohen. This audio is really cool, allowing me to see my novel from a new perspective. 

I recommend this service to other authors. Karen’s rates are very reasonable. She does voiceovers for novel teasers, book trailers are more. Karen is good to use as a voiceover if your lead character is female. 

You can  connect with Karen on Twitter for more information: @karenaudio.

Never let the past win!

As the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women took place on Wednesday 25th November 2015, I wanted to give an important message to women and girls across the globe, who have experienced violence at some stage of their lives:

You can reclaim your future and heal from the pain. It may be a struggle, it might not be a walk in the park, but with determination, faith, hope and the right support network, you can overcome difficult and traumatic experiences and you can enjoy a bright future and a fulfilling life.

On this journey of healing, you are not alone. There will always be help and support out there. This support could be in the form of friends, family, counsellors, helplines and organisations. Never be afraid to ask your support network and professionals for help, advice or guidance. 

Through singing and by getting help from her family, friends and professionals, Alena Pavlis, the teenage protagonist in my novel, UnShatter Me, is able to heal and recover from her traumatic past.

The main message in my book is: Never allow anyone or anything to steal your future. Reclaim your destiny. Start today.

Together, we can end the violence against women and girls.
