This year I wanted to do something different with my blog. I wanted to give you a quick and honest look at the behind the scenes of the life of an author. As an author who lives in London, I have Europe practically on my doorstep. I do spend quite a few days every year travelling around Europe and the USA. And, this is what inspired me to start this Follow me around series on my new YouTube channel, Indie Authorpreneur TV. The first Travel Vlog in the series is, Follow me around Futuroscope. In this second episode, I’d love to invite you to follow me around Paris.
I’m going to keep this blog post short and to the point. I know 2016 was a great year for a lot of people especially politically, but personally, I’ve had the best year ever. This is the beauty of looking back and seeing all of the amazing things that happened over the course of a year. So, let’s take a brief look at my 2016, a year in review.
Joyeux Noël, Merry Christmas! I’m currently in the beautiful city of Poitiers, France spending time with my fiancé Roland and his Family. And, I’m excited to announce it’s novel location scouting time! The city of Poitiers is a beautiful city located in the west of France in the region bearing the same name. It has beautiful narrow cobbled streets and beautiful houses all crushed up next to each other. The city centre looks positively medieval. If it weren’t for the small European cars, you would struggle to believe you were in the 21st century.
As I write this, I’m supposed to having a couple of days off to recover from National Novel Writing Month. It was a great idea in theory. As an entrepreneur, I’ve found that I can’t do anything or take time off without thinking about my business, or my next book. A not so great habit I should kick to the kerb.
I can’t believe I’ve decided to do this. Nevertheless, I’m excited to announce; I’m adding a third blog on top of all the other things I’m committed to doing as an authorpreneur. For quite some time, I’ve been wrestling with the idea of creating an author website for my fiction books. This would mean having three websites, including a website that I’m no longer using. As I pondered this idea, I couldn’t help thinking, there must be a better way. After much deliberation, I realised that I need to have a separate blog for you, as a reader of my thrillers because a lot of the content on my Authorpreneur Blog and Behind the Scenes blog isn’t relevant for you. The results of this pondering lead me to create this Notes From The Cave Blog. So, what is the ‘Notes From The Cave blog’? And, what can you expect from this blog?
