A day out to meet Andrew Dodd

It’s been a very very tough week, and although everything for TSK is going so well. I’m in the middle of a blog tour, and a great explosion event on facebook! that losing my cat and work life has been bearable.

But I had the opportunity and the get up and go in me to drive my mum and myself 2 hours to Yorkshire to meet our Sequential artist Andrew.

I am not a confident driver at all. I am not a confident person at all. But, I do know these things and being ‘out there’ with the readers is important so I had better start to get used to being asked questions.

Driving out there was awesome. it felt like I was doing something, not sitting at home being the computer writer. I was really going on a mini adventure.

We did get a little lost at a few roundabouts, you know sat nav’s aren’t that great at telling you where to go, esecially as you’ve passed it. lol

But we got there, we met Andrew and his lovely sister Carol and had a fab afternoon. I got to see how art starts and forms the fantastic inked work we are ready to launch as part of TSK’s website. And I’m in awe such a talented man like seriously talented.

Of course we eventually had to leave, and I’d forgotten half of what I wanted to talk about, but it was good. Mum and I were so hungry we stopped at a calvery on the way out and ate and then headed home. Turning it into a real day out. πŸ™‚

Here are the pics we took… and although really am camera shy I don’t think they turned out to bad πŸ™‚

We’re also having a real live book launch on Friday in my local haunt. I am so excited, and so nervous. πŸ™‚

Oh to be a writer… did I really want this?

You bet ya!

Remembering Spooky….

I can’t say that it’s because I’ve been totally awestruck in everything TSK that I’ve not posted. Last weekend I had to put my 19 year old cat Spooky to sleep. It was one of the worst moments of my life, and has left me feeling really devastated. It’s already been a week, and this sadness is lingering.

It’s so hard, I know I’ll still always have Bobby and he’s so good at keeping me company at the moment. πŸ™‚ I can’t be without a little friend. But I miss my furry one.

I’m going to write up another post for all TSK because so much is going on it’s been the only thing keeping me really from spiralling downwards.

I do want to feel happy again… it will take some time, she was a big part of our lives.
