Aria Graice

Wow it's been a long time since I've been here. I'll try to post something more regularly but if you know me at all you'll know my memory is awful. Nudges always appreciated.   Anyway, I thought it might be fun to give you a bit of a peep behind the scenes of Aria Graice. It actually all started with one of those silly, click bait things that crop up on Facebook. It was about the children of celebrities. I started thinking about it and this name popped into my head. Aria Graice. I star

Time Moves On And A Lot Has Happened

It's been a long time since I've blogged here. In the meantime, a lot has happened.   I have been somewhat successful in getting published, with 11 books and 7 anthologies I've managed to get myself 'out there' although I'm not selling many books yet.   The publishing journey has been a very interesting one and I've learned a lot, good and bad. One thing I would absolutely advise anyone seeking a publisher is to make sure your contract includes a clause that your rights revert back to you im

Rainbow Warriors - The Face in the Window

After almost a year The Face in the Window is due for release shortly. I don't know the date yet but I'll keep you informed,   This is the first book I'm releasing under my own name and it's a little bit nerve wracking. However, I want to stand up and be counted and I want my family and friends to know my work as my work. So, as nerve wracking as it is, it's liberating too.   I've started a new blog Rainbow Warriors. Take a look and see what a Rainbow Warrior is all about. http://cherylheadf

Update, Flashing and Humping

I can't beleive it's been so long since I posted here. Things have just been so crazy. Among other things     I've become involved in a Flash Group. Basically this means that every Wednesday I post a 1000 word 'flash fiction' on my blog. At present, this is following two beautiful boys called Rune and Luke. They've gone through the mill but they're getting there Check out the story so far http://nephylim-author.blogspot.co.uk/p/luke-and-rune.html   I've published two new books. One is an ol

My Awesome Son

We now have two published authors in the family. My son's 'flash' has been accepted for publication as the winner of a school competition. The stories had to be 50 words or less     THE HANGING   There was a man called Maledos who was accused of many crimes. A wave of fear washed over him as the scarlet-stained, golden rope was fitted around his beck. The lever was pulled, the door opened. He saw darkness then light... saved by a magnificent golden angel. "You!"     I am a proud proud M

INTERVIEW WITH SILVER

So, you all know I've stared myself a blog   nephylim-author.blogspot. com   I have been interviewing fellow authors and today a friend gave me the idea of interviewing characters.   Once the idea was in my head, I found that I got really excited at the thought of interviewing Silver. I would love to get to know him better and the thought of having some further glimpses inside that crazy head of his it uber intrigueing.   BUT... here's the rub.   I am only going to do it, if someone is

Too Many Likes

Is it me or are there suddenly way too many 'like' buttons. They seem to be jumping out at me from everywhere.   I am a scatty thing and I keep forgetting to click them. It seems as if every time I read an entry or a blog or look at a picture, there are at least two to click and by the time I've fnished reading the chapter or the blog or looking at the picture I've completely forgotten about the like button or the stars and then I feel guilty when I realise, which is usually much later.   So

I Have A Blog

I know, crazy isn't it?   This technophobic technopathetic girl has managed all by herself (almost) to make a whole blog page.   Go take a look at vote in my poll as to which kind of man you prefer.   http://nephylim-author.blogspot.com/

Yay Published at Last

So I now have two books published.   I have no idea if I'm allowed to advertise on here or not. No doubt if I'm not the blog will be removed and I apologize to the admin.   The first book I won't go on too much about becuase it is already posted here. ENIGMA but you can get it from All Romance just by clicking on Other books by Nephylim   So, the new one is The Unfairness Of Life.   It's along the lines of my usual stories but a little bit different as it dips its toes into the realm of

What Does It Feel Like to Be Published.

Okay, so I've just had my first novel published online. Enigma is out today on Smashwords and in the next few days all over the place   So how do I feel?   Excited? Elated? Proud?   Erm... no. I feel sick and scared and slightly guilty. Go figure.   There are so many things to do. I have to 'get it out there' and I am SO scared that I will miss something or do something wrong. God I'm scared. Anyone have any advice. This is my baby, you know, my Silver. I don't want to let him down.

NaNoWriMo

So, I have decided to do NaNo again this year. My last effort Death By Dreaming turned out pretty well so let's see with this one.   Thanks to Maria for forcing me to wait for two days before starting even though my head was bursting with ideas, so I started on November 1st like a good girl.   So. I have the whole thing planned out... as much as I ever do, although I doubt that I will be sticking to it; I never do.   The characters are pretty wild this time and there's a lot of action, So

Funny Story

Okay, so I really really don't want to have to explain how i dislocated my shoulder to all the lovely people who have asked.   Howerver, I realise that I am not going to be able to avoid it... SO you can blame this blog on all those horrible people who care enough to beat me over the head with a baseball bat and force me to post this blog.   Warning TMI coming up and it won't be pretty.   Okay.... I am NOT going to come out and say the words and no apologies for that. So here is an eupham

Wales

I am still surprised that many people don't know that Wales is a separate country... well a principality of England actually although I'm not supposed to be bitter that we are still under occupation.   SOOOO some pictures   FIRST MY OWN AREA       Ystrafellte. The last know sighting of fairings. There is supposed to be a cave behind the waterfalls where Arthur and his men are sleeping until needed again by Wales... yeah, where are you guys     Just over my mountain where one of th

The Right Thing

I've been having quite a few problems with regard to doing the right thing lately and more often than not they have turned out to be the wrong thing.   The thing I am concerned about today is my job   Being a lawyer you would think i'd be cool headed and analytical... well I am when I'm behind the desk or in the courtroom. I am far better sorting out the lives of strangers then I am with my own and those close to me.   I think it says a lot that I am the most disorganised person EVER and m

ANOTHER Update

I'm sure you're all very bored by now with my sudden splurge of blogging but I just wanted to say that i've taken the job. Three days a week 9.30 to 3. I'll always be home for Efan and I wil always have a day off tomorrow.   Still plenty of time for writing and painting but with a cheque at the end of the month.   I am SO excited about telling the Benefits Agency where to stuff their benefits. There is nothing beneficial about them at all.   As for the morphine well, I reckon I am going

Update on the Morphine.

Well, two weeks on Morphine and what difference has it made... pretty much bugger all.   In fact, if anything, it's made it worse. The problem is that I have two levels of pain... the underlying toochache that is there ALL the time, whether I am sitting lying or walking and that is much better.   The other type of pain is the... being stabbed by sharp knives or burning needles kind of pain. That's the kind I get when i twist or stand up or bend or sit down. If anything that is worse because

The Joy of Morphine

So, I have been having a lot of trouble with my back and joints again.   I have to admit that since I have not been working it has improved, but it has been a real struggle since I had the really bad episode in February. Usually my acute attacks last a week and then they go away. This time it didn't completely go away at all.   The problem I have is that my discs are crumbling. I have a lot of problems with my back generally since I broke it but the disc thing is the scariest because the di

Tired of Everything

I've come to the conclusion that the universe/great spirit/God/ the Source... hates me.   Yesterday I spend most of the day recovering from a hack attack. I've never been so frustrated in all my life... well until today... more of that later.   My virus protection was removed from my computer and all my accounts, except, apparently my GA account (maybe they're homophobic and that suits me fine right now) have been hacked, the passwords changed and everything has gone to hell. Fortunately I d

HOME ALONE

SOOOO   The daughters have moved out. OH GODS but it feels good to have the house to myself. Okay, so it's a bit quiet sometimes especially when, like tonight Ef is with his dad but it is blissful to clean my kitchen, do the dishes, go to bed/work/holiday and have the kitchen clean and dishes washed when I come back.   Never again will I have to see that teetering mound of grease and dried on tomatoe sauce. Never again will I have to wash a plate before i can eat my dinner. Never again will
