The Stars and Moments that Guide Us…

black and white meDon’t fret I am not going to preach to anyone. No, this is more of an observation than anything else. Over the course of my life I have delved in an out of following my star-sign. They have always intrigued me, how is it that someone can know what an entire group of people are going to do based solely on their date of birth? It is impossible, yet some have been eerily close to the bone. My guess would be a numbers game; they are usually printed daily, I couldn’t begin to count how many people are in each star-sign eventually they would have to get it right… Right? Although it still freaks me out when they do!

 

The point I am making is recently I have found myself in a wonderful situation; I have nothing health wise left to worry about, I don’t have to fight anymore for treatment and have been getting help for a physical disability. But here is what has thrown me; as incredible as this feeling is, after years of fighting one way or another to get treatment or just get up in the morning having life run do smoothly so suddenly has left me lost. Where do I put all this energy into? And for the first time in years I found myself looking at my star-signs.

 

Please do not get me wrong I am doing anything but complain! This is right up there with getting married, it is just after so long of pushing for this and never really believing it would happen I never thought to prepare myself for what to do when it did.

 

The moments that lead me to this point stick out so clearly in my mind, I can trace it back years. I spent most of yesterday laughing hysterically, uncertain if I could believe it had happened then I realised that one thing after another had lined up and helped me to progress. If I hadn’t of found a certain bit of information, if I hadn’t of gone to a certain doctor, if I hadn’t of met my husband, or walked into Coffee Rio.

 

Now, I should explain two things… I am an atheist; however I have such strong respect for those who have the capability to believe in something bigger than them. I lost that a long time ago. I do however have a theory on how I would like to live. I try to respect others (no matter their colour, belief or age), I do try to understand other people’s points of view, even when I don’t agree with them, and I do everything to the best of my ability. This way I regret nothing. I do fail at this sometimes but that’s why I have learned how important these things are to me.

 

I don’t expect everyone to follow in my path, or read this and say ‘That is how I should be’. Everyone has to find their own way to their own way of life.

 

The second thing I should say and this is probably the reason I am on such a high today is that yesterday afternoon after over three years of pushing for it I finally got the go ahead for an unorthodox treatment for the condition I have. So I am feeling a little reflective today. Alongside this after two surgeries and a hand full of physiotherapists I have found a specialist to treat the physical symptoms of another condition, my book release is due out soon and I have been happily married for two and a half months…. I have met some incredible new friends and am finally in a totally good space.

 

I hoped in sharing this I could spread a little hope and joy today.

Marketing Advisor For Nocturnal Press Publications

Image 

Hi guys and gals, my apologies for the quiet spell. I have recently taken up a job with Nocturnal Press Publications (The Publishers who signed me) as their Marketing Advisor. So to if anyone would be interested in our services then please do get in touch and I will give you a rundown of how we can help.

My office hours are Monday To Friday 9AM to 1PM and you can contact me via;

Email: l.mullerworth@gmail.com

Facebook: Louisa Mullerworth

Twitter: @babymull

Here is a bit on how we can help you;

So you have registered as self employed, and you are near completion of your first draft? And you aren’t sure how to start with your marketing and sales? After all the two are easily confused they are so closely linked. However there are distinct and important differences…

Putting it simply, marketing is leading the horse to water. And a sale is convincing it to drink.

Promoting your book to the right people will not only generate more sales and boost your bottom line. But marketing is about so much more, it is about finding customers and creating a working relationship with them, it is about keeping your customers and developing with them.

We can help you Find and get the right customers, Advertise in a way which works for you, and teach you how to Direct Market to your advantage.

We CAN’T and won’t market for you. We just don’t have the time to do you justice this way and it tends to be less personal, I know I have found that when selling most of the time you are selling yourself as much as your book. (By this I mean people will buy into you if you believe your book is worth buying.)

Saying this if you are signed to Nocturnal Press all cost related advertising is covered. We only ask that our signed authors do free advertising. So if you are an unsigned author looking for a publisher it would be worth submitting your work. www.npuniverse.com

If you have any Questions please feel free to ask using any of the contact methods above or post them in the comments section.

Kind Regards

Dear Followers old and new,

I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge and thank you for reading the blog. I know it is a bit of a mixed bag and some of it won’t always interest everyone. This is ok, I never expected that. In fact the point of it was claim stake to a little corner of internet to voice opinions, bring awareness, and help.) Not to mention have a bit of fun and laugh here and there.

The fact that there are those who wish to share in this is touching. This blog is an open area for those who wish to can share in commonalities and feel safe that they are with those who may challenge but not discriminate; I have no issues with differs of opinions, friendly debates and voicing opposing opinions but I will never allow abuse to be put up on the site.

So please feel free to comment on anything I put up, if you agree or not. I strongly believe that the world was built by honesty and every person should be allowed their right to say their opinion so long as it doesn’t discriminate against another person or group of people.

Now that the ‘formal’ bit is done with, I want to say a big HELLO to new followers. The blog is written by me (Louisa Mullerworth) however don’t be surprised if there is the odd ‘Guest Writer’. It isn’t about one subject in particular although it is primarily an author’s blog. It covers a bit of everything from tips and experiences of being an author to health issues and everything in-between. It is about life; and what it is to live, love, laugh from one perspective, with the aim to share the experience and hopefully help others in one way or another. Or just make someone smile if they are having a bad day.

On that note I shall say ta ta for now and I look forward to your input into ‘AuthorSpot’.

Welcome to the weird and wacky.

Hello and welcome,

My name is Louisa Mullerworth; I am an author currently working on a Science Fiction novel. This is my second book the first being a fantasy written for and originally by a young woman who died before she could finish it.

‘Mistol A New Beginning’ http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mistol-New-Beginning-Louisa-Mullerworth/dp/1456796232/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368106136&sr=8-1&keywords=mistol+a+new+beginning

Writing full time can be an anti-social job, not to mention it can cause you to loose a few marbles along the way. (Don’t get me wrong this doesn’t always happen and sometimes writers stay perfectly sane), in my case however I get gripped in my work and tend to loose myself in it. This isn’t a bad thing; more fun than anything else. 😉

So this Blog will be a mix of; random thoughts, recommendations for unwinding, the odd riddle, and the occassional column, not to mention snip bits from both the published book (Mistol) and updates and teasers for my work in progress ‘Dying To Help; The Beginning Of The End’.

So ta ta for now,

Louisa M Mullerworth.
