WereVamp is on!

Just wanted to jot down a quick few lines before I head off to butcher myself at the gym on a Monday after work!

Downloaded a bunch of photos for my next book cover today. I anticipate I’ll be working on making them look spookily pretty for the next couple of weeks whenever I get some time to play around with them so if I’m a little quiet don’t think I’ve slacked down or anything 😀

I’m working in the background!

Until my next update or just plain whinge – see you later my peeps!

Shake-Up in my Writing World …

More like an Earthquake actually.

I’ve been very obviously missing in the blogosphere of my own writing lately and it’s not because I haven’t been busy writing, it’s just that most of my time has been spent getting published in a variety of online and print magazines for my company.

So I have been writing.

Just not fiction.

But I’m working on changing that.

So, I’m hoping to get my second book published in my vampire series but I still have loads to do.

Just wanted to let the few of you who are my diehard fans know that I’m still here and I haven’t given up! 🙂

The holidays are so very close (I can almost smell it) and I am tiring, so hopefully I’ll be able to put some rubber to the floor before I go for a break but I’ll keep you posted.

Till then, lots of love and just keep writing, writing, writing, just keep writing!

I’m to Blame for That Dove Ad

Honestly.

I am.

Why?

Because for far too long many females of colour have perpetuated the myth that anything but pale, white skin is ugly.

There’s no two ways about it.

It sounds harsh, we try and put our political correctness spin on it but the truth is, it’s girls of colour that promote our skin as being ugly, undesirable and almost “dirty”. Why else would we need a clean, white Dove brand to help us scrub away all that ugliness.

I’m going to get haters on this but it needs to be said.

When my country’s malls and department stores are literally littered with Caucasian models that we all aspire to look like (when none of us do no matter how many whiteness products we use) I think we need to get off our hypocritical arses and wake up and smell the roses.

It’s not Unilever’s Dove or any other whitewashed brand’s fault. It’s ours. Yours and mine.

Until we start saying I am beautiful, I am desirable and I want more representations of the way I look and feel in my malls and shop fronts, the Unilever’s of the world will keep doing what they are doing because it’s what we’re asking for.

This is not a hate post against Caucasian women – far from it. What this is a post about is a celebration of ALL of us – of all colours and sizes.

There’s a reason we’re told from day one that one size does not fit all because boy, would that be a boring world.

Here’s the ad if you haven’t seen it yet.

I’m Not Laughing

I love the sound of Kookaburra’s.

Even when I feel like they’re laughing at me rather than with me – particularly when I’m slogging away on a hot summer morning run (I try not to take it personally when a whole bunch of them seem to get hysterical every time I pass through their morning breakfast route).

This is a photograph of one my sister took on a mid afternoon stroll this Labour Day Weekend. They’re brave birds but this one looked straight at Mayunka as if to have her photo taken.

For all the bird lovers – I thought you’d like this one!

When the Fruits of your Labour …

… Finally show up, it’s a great feeling isn’t it?

Our team at work have been working tirelessly for the past month or so trying to get our 30 second stint on Australia’s national Channel Ten channel’s Studio 10 (Morning News show) for the launch of our latest Organic Food Products just perfect.

The result?

Short but oh so very sweet.

We’ve hit replay about a gazillion times (and there are no signs of our trigger finger slowing) and we’re proud and satisfied.

Don’t you just love that feeling when all your blood, sweat and tears behind your hard work finally has something to show for it?

We certainly do.

Here’s the clip if you’re interested.

See you guys soon 🙂
