Happy 9 Year Blogging Anniversary To Quirky Books And Published Author Sandra Bellamy At Quirky Books!


9 Year Blogging anniversary

Sometimes you have to be your own cheerleader in life and say congratulations to yourself. Because if you don’t recognise your own achievements and think they are amazing, why should anyone else? Yes, I have been blogging for over 9 years on this Quirky Books blog and in 2017 I finally registered Quirky Books as my own publishing imprint. It was a very proud moment! To have my own publishing company is a dream come true. I used to always want to be traditionally published, but once I realised I can make more money and have more flexibility over the content of my books, as a self-published Author, and that my books truly change peoples’ lives and stop some people from killing themselves, I realised my life purpose is being fulfilled and I am leaving a true lasting legacy for generations to come!

Recently I had a respiratory infection and lost voice (I could only whisper), and could not do any live streaming on either of my www.youtube.com/quirkybooksTV or my www.youtube.com/asexualisemyasexuallife channel. The doctor told me I must rest to get well, she was concerned that my heartbeat was faster than normal and my temperature was higher than normal. So I rested for 7 days straight. I did try to do a bit of writing on day 4 of my 7 days of antibiotics, but started to feel dizzy again, so had to stop it. My first stream was only a few hours ago on my www.youtube.com/asexualisemyasexuallife channel, since getting my voice back. The one thing I am very grateful and thankful for, if I ever lost my voice completely for good, which I would never wish to ever do, as I love talking, educating others, and have a gift for YouTube live streaming, then at least I would still be able to do my main passion and life purpose of writing, which is a huge relief!

So yeah, always live with passion and purpose in your heart and write what you want, like and love, and just be quirky you, as no one does you better xx

Until next time, stay quirky and write soon

10 Days To Go To Creating The Landing Page Of Your Dreams For Life – Don’t Miss Out! Best Life Time Deal For Author Pages!


Drag Dropr Agency Edition

Drag Dropr

Only 10 days to go! This is a once in a LIFE TIME DEAL you don’t want to miss! If you are fed up with trying to customise WordPress Templates and of spending hours learning how to use different themes, you are not alone. And even when you have learnt how to use them, you are somewhat restricted to what they can do. You know what I am saying right? You’re not a coder but you want to have beautifully coded pages, that create the exact layout you want, and to know that what you see in your Dashboard, REALLY is what your customers see on your actual live site. Welcome to Drag Dropr! This Drag Dropr Lifetime Deal was too good to miss that I just had to share it with you, because I didn’t want you to miss out! I have NEVER seen a landing page builder deal that lets you so effortlessly create landing pages in minutes, using drag and drop blocks, which you can copy and paste to any site you want, OR install the Chrome extension on your WordPress site and effortlessly create a landing page for your book, product, or service fast, and push it to said site, at the click off a button, for this insane one-time price of just $99 for life! Or you can buy the personal edition for just $49, which is an absolute steel! Don’t even think about it, just go get it!

I spent more on Thrive Architect plugin and it conflicted with my security plugin and would not accept my email form code, so I was stuffed to be quite frank with you. I bought the Thrive one time deal, but you only get support for a year, and as it was a plugin designed for WordPress, I ended up being stuck with an expensive and awesome looking tool that I just can’t use with my WordFence security plugin. After being hacked, WordFence is a godsend that I don’t want to remove, apparently there is a way around this, or so I just recently read, but it means temporarily stopping my security plugin and allowing my site to be unprotected for a time. But after studying some of Thrive courses, Drag Dropr seems far more simple and easier to use and that I can quickly get what I need to be done, done! I don’t want to be faffing around for a long time. I just want to drag, drop, and go get on with other work! Time is precious and it’s limited, and I thank God Drag Dropr came when it did, because soon I am about to create a campaign for my latest book  and I need to create multiple pages quickly for an accompanying mindblowingly good deal. I also have other projects on the go too, and sorting my pages out for them was a headache too! It also works seamlessly with the membership and course site builder platform I use which is Invanto.

So after reading all about Drag Dropr, and asking the guy who founded it, as a way of helping his own client’s out, a few final questions, along with a member of his team giving me a hands-on, one-to-one demo for free, I reached for my debit card and paid the $99 for the Agency License. I believe if you are going to get a deal, you need to do it in style and get the best deal for the best price. I believe you have invest in yourself and your business for your future, not just right now. You have to think big, to grow big, so that is why I happily got the Agency Deal, because with that you can connect unlimited WordPress sites, and you can also host more pages on Drag Dropr’s own site, than with the Personal Edition. You can stack up to 5 codes of each too, meaning you can buy up to 5 of the same deal. Drag Dropr works seamlessly with multiple CMS platforms using the Chrome extension. I don’t usually use Chrome as my browser but as this deal was too good to miss, because it can solve a lot of my current page building problems and save me time and money, I don’t mind opening up Chrome to build my pages.

After learning about sales funnels and how to REALLY make money online, I started to investigate numerous platforms and page builders. BUT, many landing page builders cost a monthly subscription fee and if you are you are trying to run a successful business, you want to keep costs down and quality up! Drag Dropr appears to be good quality and if you are not satisfied within 30 days, you can get your money back anyway, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Go check out Drap Dropr now! Before this deal is gone for good! Click this  Drag Dropr link

The information on the sales page gives a good amount of detail about Drag Dropr and the two deals, but if you have any more questions, then open up the chat bubble to the bottom left of the Invanto screen, and the team will be happy to help you. Or you can drop me a comment below and I will try to answer your questions for you. If you want an awesome course building or membership building platform, do check out Invanto itself, as it is amazing, and I feel truly blessed to host my courses and membership sites through them. You don’t have to faff around with checkout plugins, membership plugins, or setting up Woocommerce, and you can kiss goodbye to being hacked when you host your courses and memberships on their site as it stores your stuff on Amazon servers and is high security. You can upload unlimited videos for your courses and memberships sites at no extra cost.

So go check out Drag Dropr deals right now, and get this insane deal, before it’s gone forever! If you want to create awesome Author pages for your books or pages for your sales funnels, you need this deal. I am updating this post on 3rd of October 2019 and there is only 10 days to go get this deal of a lifetime. Please don’t miss out!

Until next time, write soon and stay quirky you.

A Day In The Life Of An Asexual Author! What Does An Author Do With Their Day? #amwriting


Have you ever wondered what a published Author does with their day? What a day in the life of an Author looks like? What it entails? If so, then this video is for you! I specialise in non-fiction books for quirky niches, and have my own publishing imprint called Quirky Books! My speciality is writing books about Asexuality and being Asexual. I am asexual myself and a hugely romantic one at that. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that is the lack of sexual attraction. It’s barely unheard of and deeply misunderstood. I am romantically attracted to guys only, but not sexually.

I am currently working on my second book for asexuals (Asexual Guide To Sex – for those asexuals who are considering trying sex for the first time, and considering all the options as to whether it’s right for them or not), and I did this live stream on my Asexual channel www.youtube.com/asexualisemyasexuallife to explain what I do with my day. I am also currently in the middle of getting my Fibromyalgia Self-help Handbook ready for print – It’s out in Kindle already and I have interest already in my third book for asexuals, which I haven’t yet started. I have a fourth book for asexuals planned too, with more to come.

As if that wasn’t enough, I also have other exciting projects I am working on. I am letting go of some of my domains and websites that I have had for some time, to make way for new and exciting business opportunities which you won’t want to miss!

If you have got any comments or questions about being an Author, let me know in the comments below and I will do my best to help you.

As always, stay quirky and write soon!

21 Reasons Why I Love Being A Writer!


Quote about writing
Writing quote by Sandra Bellamy

Let me know how many of these 21 reasons why I love being a writer, you can relate to, in the comments below!

  1. Your imagination is brought to life!
  2. When writing a fiction book, the characters speak to you and tell you how to write their story! (True or true?)
  3. It’s exciting to see your ideas come to life.
  4. When momentum builds and you can’t stop writing, it’s so euphoric!
  5. I just love the act of writing, it feels like I am in ecstasy when I do it.
  6. Writing feels like a part of my soul I never want to be without, it’s central to my core being.
  7. It stops and prevents boredom.
  8. I feel like my books are my best friends, they know all my secrets, my personal thoughts and feelings, and they don’t judge me; they just let me flow and be me, as I am, in the moment.
  9. My books are my companions on a dark and gloomy day, and also a spark of light, that lightens the way.
  10. Writing is a gift that I am proud to say I have, and it makes me feel amazing!
  11. Writing is my life purpose 100%, it’s the number 1 thing in my life that gives me 100% satisfaction.
  12. Writing changes people’s lives.
  13. Writing a book leaves a lasting legacy, long after you have gone from this earth in the human form you are at present. (Seeing your book in a future life could be a hugely surreal experience if you believe in reincarnation, and a great story in and of itself. I have thought about writing that one myself but as I specialise in mostly non-fiction, I prefer to stick to what I enjoy writing the most, but if you are looking for a writing prompt, then you can grab this one with my compliments!)
  14. I love owning my own publishing imprint of Quirky Books – it was a dream since I started writing this blog over 8 years ago. This means any books published under my own imprint can be ordered in shops and found in some UK libraries, including the British Library, as I have my own ISBN  numbers.
  15. My ASEXUAL PERSPECTIVES: 47 Asexual Stories: LOVE, LIFE and SEX, ACElebration of ASEXUAL DIVERSITY book, is in the British Library, and will go down as part of British Heritage to be used for research for generations to come, I am really proud of this. Especially as everyone thinks they need to have sex in order to have a loving, happy, and healthy relationship, which for asexuals, (those who lack sexual attraction), is simply not true.
  16. Writing makes me feel good, about myself; about my life; and in general I am so much happier when I am writing than when I am not. When I don’t write, it feels like something is missing from my life and my soul is not fulfilled.
  17. Writing feels so good and puts me in a good mood, it makes me feel more like my life is worth living.
  18. Writing is extremely therapeutic, it purges the soul and allows you to get all of your feelings and emotions out in a constructive manner.
  19. Being a writer allows you to be an observer of life like no other. You see the world completely differently to anyone else.
  20. There is no limit to how many books you can write and how many lives you can change as a result.
  21. Writing it the most powerful communication tool you can use to change the world. Even if you learn something on a YouTube video; other video; or from listening to a person speak, it’s the act of writing that learning out, that instills the learning into the subconscious mind. It’s only through changing patterns in the subconscious mind, that we can begin to free ourselves of the social and parental conditioning that we have grown accustom to.

What is a success jar and why do you need one? #lifehack #liveyourbestlife


You’ve mostly likely heard that to stay motivated and productive, it’s super important to write your successes down in a diary or journal. If you have never heard of this before it’s a great technique for building momentum, positivity, and productivity. An alternative to this is a Success Jar, this is a jar which you fill with your successes instead of putting then into a diary – or you can do both if you so wish.

Not everyone has the time to sit down and write in a diary or journal, and not everyone wants to. But writing on a notelet or tearing off a piece of paper, and writing your successes on it, then sticking it in your Success Jar, is a powerful way of acknowledging your successes and make you feel great – without formally sitting down to write, and without stressing yourself out over taking time out of your day when it is so mega busy.

In this video – which I recorded as a Live Stream so the sound is not perfect in it, I explain in detail what a Success Jar is, and show you two of mine from last year.

I hope this helps you? I would love to know your thoughts about it? Please comment below!

Are you use anything similar, and if so, how is that working out for you? Please let me know in the comments section below, as I love to read you!

Until next time, embrace your quirky and write soon
