The New Book and Other Pleasantries


It’s been a while, hasn’t it, my lovelies? Life has been truly hectic, but fun; but if you stuck by, and are still here, here’s what’s happening in kkolmakovland ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Hammer Up! is out!

I know, right? Shocking! Somehow amidst the new job; and the online childcare courses I’m taking; and the Comic-Con I had a table at; and the everyday life that shouldn’t be abandoned (Stop glaring at me, Laundry Pile! I’ll get to you, when I get to you!)… I released the second book!

It’s available here on Amazon… or alternatively, if you trust me (I swear you can, but you’d have to take my word for it ๐Ÿ˜› ) you can send $25 to my PayPalย and get a SIGNED copy into your mailbox. Just don’t forget to send the address where Hammer Up! should be shipped. You can contact me through my Writer’s Facebook page.

If you contributed into the Kickstarter campaign for Hammer Up! (it’s sad it didn’t work out, but it was loads of fun to try!) you know that there’s a print.

If you want it, it’s yours with the book for additional $5.

Those of you who already sent some funds that way, your books and prints will be sent out next week!

2. My new job is AWESOME! I’m now working in a childcare centre in a room with 16 three- to five-year olds – and it’s the best I’ve ever felt at work! Who knew after years of uni teaching; interpreting; translating; working in a bakery; and tutoring, that I belong in childcare?!

And the best part is that the schedule – early rise, and done at 5 p.m. – is quite perfect for writing, and drawing, and still being a good mum!

I will of course have to cut down some of my projects. Let’s face it, when I just started I had quite unrealistic expectations; but most of my stuff will stay. Here’s what’s happening:

A. Wattpad: several webserials are ongoing – and going strong! You can see the update schedule on the left of my Wattpad page.ย Jack in the Boxย is almost complete; and I’m still pondering which of the hundred ideas swarming in my head will take it’s Thursday slot ๐Ÿ˜€ Let me know if you have a favourite among those I mentioned before.

B. Art-ing is happening, and will go to DeviantArt, and Etsy, and you can see it on my Instagram.

C. I’m still planning to write some FF. The Four Corners of Middle Earthย is the story I want to continue writing; and perhaps some others will get some attention ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also, I’m planning to watch Thor: Ragnarokย next week, and we all know what large amounts of Loki do to me ๐Ÿ˜‰

D. I’m planning to revamp my Patreonย page in the next few days, so feel free to support me ๐Ÿ˜‰

E. My next big project is turning Blind Carnivalย (remember this one? she writes erotic novels; he’s boring in bed? ๐Ÿ˜€ ) into… a book? a webserial on Wattpad? something completely new? I don’t know, but let me know if you do!

That’s all, folks!

I’ll go write a new chapter forย Second Time Around. Hogwarts Thorin and Wren need me! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s a photo of me from the Comic-Con if you missed it ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. I love it! Will the story Blind Carnival take long (obviously, it takes time) or is there a way we can still read it? I’m trying to catch up on all your works while have a little break from work and school stay awesome!

    1. Yay! Thank you for reading and thank you for your support! After a long consideration I decided that ‘Blind Carnival’ will probably go to this blog, and I’ll be posting a chapter a week, on Saturdays, as I used to do with Dr. T Series. This way I’ll keep up with editing and posting it, and maybe eventually it’ll turn into a publishable thingie ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m also hoping to post a ko-fi link after chapters so people could support them with a cup of coffee (well, in my case half the time it’ll be Earl Grey ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Among other things, ‘Blind Carnival’ ended rather abruptly, I think I ran out of ideas for it, but it definitely needs continuation; so after the old chapters are posted I’ll continue writing it and there will be all sorts of new events.

      Again, thank you!
