Weekly update – week 25

Week 25 - 2019.JPG


Hi friends,

If I thought last week was crazy busy, this week taught me what busy really means. I’ve recently started being PA for  baby author, who’s about to release her first ever novel. Exciting as it is, it’s extremely hard when said author hasn’t done any research or homework, on the world she is entering. Like, what do you do when you find out your author has chosen a pen name that’s exactly the same, as an established author in the same genre? I’m slowly learning that all I can do, is put it to the author. At the end of the day I’m not there to make or break her writing career, I’m only there to help. And that’s something I have to constantly remind myself!! Especially because originally I was only meant to help with promo stuff, but turns out I’m not pretty much doing everything. Still for the low, low price of about 5 hours at minimum wage here in the UK.

Note to oneself: be better at saying no! That’s my lesson for the coming week, which I will have to do better at. On a positive note; a friend of mine volunteered to help out, and she’s amazing at creating pictures. So without my right hand Ashton, I think I’d truly be lost!!

On the personal front I’ve had a minor operation 😦 yep, my fear of needles was once again put to the test, when it Thursday was time to go have the nails removed from my big toes. The procedure itself is fiiiiine… but those needles into the toes… that hurt like a mother chucker. If I could go back and tell a younger me to stop wearing tight shoes, I would. But hopefully I won’t have to go through this again 😉





In case you’ve missed it, here’s my posts from this week!!

  1. I have a section on my website called ‘tools for writers’ that has lots of places I’ve found for editors, book covers, social media graphics, free source pictures…all kinds of stuff! To help you with saying ‘no’, you can totally direct the askers there and say ‘so sorry, I don’t have the time, but here is this stack of resources for you. Best of luck!’. The Insecure Writer’s Support Group also has a HUGE section devoted to nothing but resources for authors, they’re well worth a look.

    It’s kind of you to give your time and effort, I hope this new author appreciates it!
