Living the story πŸ“–

I don’t know if this is a writer thing, or just an Emma thing, but if I’m walking to work, or out shopping etc I like to pretend that I’m in the book that I’m writing / written. 

Only this week I have had a random creepy nutter stalk out of some bushes in front of me, in the dark, and I naturally thought it was a zombie from the Revo-Lution! And I’ve walked past the same guy standing at the bus stop and turned him into the stalker from Relentless! 

But, the best was my trip to Morrisons where I decided to make the food shopping a little more interesting by pretending that all of the other shoppers were evil zombies. I had my own running commentary as I walked quietly past them, careful not to make eye contact or draw attention to myself. 

All was going well. I had made it to the freezer section safe and sound, until – an elderly Irish man asked me if Morrisons sell fish in sauce. Well, he was a cutie, so we had a good old natter about cod in butter sauce, his diet and how he was going to have hotdogs for dinner (the diet was boring him) – we couldn’t find cod in butter sauce, and believe me we searched all of those freezers! He left happy though, and thanked me for stopping to talk with him ❀️

Overall my shopping trip was pretty fun πŸ§Ÿβ€β™‚οΈ even if I was surrounded by sneaky flesh eaters!

Meet Stephanie Peaches

– Well actually it’s Stephanie Pearson aka Stephanie Peaches.

Elephants & Bubble Baths is a short story dedicated to my boss (#brownie points) πŸ˜‚ and friend Stephanie Pearson.

I thoroughly enjoy writing short stories about people that I know, and when I decided to write this one I knew immediately what it would be about.Β 

Steph is crazy mad. Oops, full stop πŸ˜‚ Steph is crazy mad on elephants so naturally her story had to revolve around these lovable animals 🐘

It’s a cute story, which is quite different to what I normally write, and I’m pleased to announce that I did not kill anybody!Β 

I surprised Steph with her copy this morning, and I’ll give you an update when she’s read it πŸ‘

The Revo-Lution has come to Morley!

Had a fantastic afternoon at Revo Vapes in Morley, Leeds – for the official reveal of the book that I wrote especially for them ‘The Revo-Lution’

Can’t lie, I felt momentarily famous πŸ˜‚ and I’m quite happy to say that the book was well received.

I am now working on book 2, which I plan to make much longer and quite possibly much more violent (you know me so well) as I feel that the story has much more to give.

I would like to thank the owners, Geoff Laughton and Anita Wilby for allowing me to write about them and their business, and for being super lovely today when I was taking a gazillion photos. Also thanks to Martin Benn and Josh Rose for putting up with my camera being shoved in their faces. 

You don’t need to be a vaper to pop into Revo Vapes, they offer tea and coffee and hot food, so just nip in, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a lovely atmosphere in there, everybody is really friendly and welcoming ❀️

It’s been a total blast today, and I could absolutely get on board with being famous full time πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thank you Revo πŸ”₯❀️πŸ”₯
