Gosh it’s been a while since I did a blog here, or for Josie, so I thought it must be time to catch up and let you all know what’s going on at the moment.  It’s been quite busy in the High-Heels And Slippers department and I haven’t had much time to write much at all (even though I am VERY excited about getting my second book, currently named Holding Me Up, ready for publication).    Truth is that book marketing takes up a lot of time!  

I am ECSTATIC  to let you know that High-Heels And Slippers is now officially available for $12.99 in paperback at Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/High-Heels-Slippers-Ella-Slayne/dp/1466239328/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1319042043&sr=8-1

A shipment of books is currently on its way to me  in readiness for a book launch party planned in November (eek!).  Must give another shout out to Marek Jagucki for the AWSOME cover!  Such a talent – check out his website: http://www.mjcartoons.co.uk/

I’m also so excited to let you know that the High-Heels And Slippers online blog tour will take place between the 28th November and 19th December.   Thank you to all the FIFTEEN (eek!) reviewers taking part  I can’t wait to hear what you think of the book! And a BIG thank you to Samantha Robey who swiftly and efficiently organised the whole thing!  Click on this link for her contact details and details of the tour: http://chicklitplusblogtours.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/high-heels-and-slippers-by-ella-slayne/

I will be posting updates on the blog. 🙂

I’m also thrilled to taking part in an author Q&A at Chick Lit Central on January 5th.  This website is a must for Chick Lit fans! Check it out: http://chicklitcentraltheblog.blogspot.com/

So it’s all go and no doubt Josie is feeling a tad neglected but I’ll get to her in the next few days – I promise!

Hope you’re all having a FAB week! Please feel free to stop by the blog and say “hello!” 🙂

A Little Motivation – if you need it!

Three quotations to provide a little motivation  – because this writing malarkey can seem a little overwhelming at times! 😉 I’ll be using these as inspiration this week…

You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind. Anon 

Yep – time to get those ideas down on paper.

The best way out is always through.  Robert Frost

I know! I know! It’s just that editing is sooooooooo hard!!!

Constant dripping hollows out a stone. Lucretius

Just gonna take it one step at a time…hope it’s a good week whatever project you’re tackling! 🙂

New Addition!

I have recently acquired a new mug and it is currently holding a rather nice cup of coffee – perfect for keeping me company as I type away.  Oh happy day!  🙂

Keeping Busy!

While I’m still holding off on new projects for now (I’m pleased to say the house is relatively clean!), Josie’s blog continues and there’s a new post up today: http://highheelsandslippers.wordpress.com/

It’s kind’a strange writing Josie.  I go days, even weeks, not really hearing her voice, it’s as if she’s gone on holiday and then suddenly out of the blue, I hear her, like a tape playing in my head and I write a new blog.   I find that I hear and see everything I write in my head  – it’s as if there’s a mini-media system playing in my mind.   On reflection that makes me sound a bit loopy but I’m hoping all the fellow writers out there understand what I mean – eek!

Have a FAB and productive day! 🙂
