I Hereby Pledge to Blog More Often

I'm absolutely terrible at keeping this blog updated, especially at the moment. I'm busy trying to finish the edits on The Singalong Society for Singletons (due to be published October 6th by Harper Impulse at Harper Collins), working on a secret project you'll find out about later in the year and also trying to crack on with my second novel (to be released next summer, if I ever finish writing it!)  It feels like I'm not blogging at all lately and I miss it.

I don't want to only be around when I'm promoting new releases.  There's more to me than just writing (not much more, to be fair.  But there is more), and that's why I'm hoping to spend more time blogging about other things I enjoy - I'm not sure how regularly I'll get to do it, but it's a plan!

Some of you may be aware of Books with Bunny, the blog I started in 2013 to talk about all things bookish.  There are hundreds of reviews, interviews and book related posts there including some fabulous guest posts.  Check it out if you're into reading.  Books have always played a huge part in my life and since starting Books with Bunny I've found friendships, lots of new favourite authors and a whole lot of books from all manner of genres to keep me busy.  There's a fabulous bookish community on twitter and I'm so glad to be a part of it.  So I may well end up talking books on here, but as I've already got my own little corner of the internet especially for that I'll try and keep the bookish chatter over there.

I'm already planning a series of weekly blog posts about musicals to coincide with the release of The Singalong Society for Singletons - I'm a huge fan of musical theatre and want to talk about the films and shows I watched in the name of research.  Watching films for research - that's when being an author is the best job ever!  So that'll definitely be happening in the autumn.

When I shared my post about 'The Call' I quoted a 'Backstreet Boys' song as the blog post title.  I always meant to come back and write more posts inspired by songs, but never got around to it.  I love music, especially pop/indie and am a self confessed fangirl, so I'm planning to finally get around to writing some of those posts too.  I'm working on a novel about a boyband, so if it ever gets published at least I'll have a backlog of relevant posts to share too...

I may also blog about other things that are important to me - I've recently lost four stone with Slimming World so there could be some posts about that coming up,  my day job is in a pre-school so I might talk a bit about education/childcare, and I adore London, New York, architecture, modern art, colour and pattern, so they may feature too.   Basically, I want to prove to myself and my readers that I'm not just stuck behind a computer all day!

So that's all for now, a pledge to blog more often.  I'm not going to set in stone how regularly, but I promise I'll share my posts in all the usual places ( and on twitter @katey5678).  If you've got anything you'd love to see me blog about, just yell.  Who knows, maybe I'll take you up on it...

End of 2018 Catch Up

The end (of 2018) is nigh and my promises to blog more regularly didn't come to fruition, yet again.  There was always an excuse not to ...
