I Have To Admit This Is Embarrassing!


Embarrassing event

I have to admit this is embarrassing to write, because I am sharing something so personal with you, which I never thought I would ever talk about publicly. But if it helps just one person, like you, it’s worth sharing!

When you are sick, it sucks. There is no doubt about that. Extra pain on top of pain, can hurt like hell!

(If you didn’t know I have been having a lot of pelvic pain due to an infection, I had to have antibiotics for this, which ended yesterday. I also went to the Doctor’s yesterday and have two creams, 1 for inflammation and another for ringworm on my arm!!!)

But… when you are right about something and something is working, you shouldn’t try to fix something that isn’t broken.

However, sometimes you want to test the waters, and you break things, in order to improve other things, in theory!

But… sometimes the reality is, you were succeeding and doing so well. You changed something and then you see a decline in your health in more ways than 1.

I recently removed 2 food items, one that I eat almost daily and one that I eat at least 3 times a week, but haven’t done so for the last week. Result is poor skin, poor bowel movements… to add to my infection problem. I instantly added 1 back when I thought about what I changed, result, literally back to normal bowel movement, instead of straining on the toilet for 20 minutes, feeling like you are about to give birth! Only what pops out, or doesn’t and you have to help it, is pretty yucky to the eye!

The other 1 key ingredient to not just get healthier skin, but to decrease inflammation in multiple areas of your body, and providing less pain and more body flexibility, I go back to eating this tonight… If you have read my Fibromyalgia Self-Help Handbook, you will know what this key ingredients is. Here is the link. If you haven’t got your copy yet, get it now, before it’s too late and you end up in pain like I was last night https://amzn.to/2DuR9nn

And yes, I recommend to eat this every day, or at least every other day, 4th day without this, and your health is a goner! This hasn’t happened before as far as I can remember, unless I am on holiday and can’t get this ingredient! I have never actively chosen to not eat this, since 2014. It wasn’t that I intended to not ever eat it again, I just wanted to have a change! Sometimes change can be a good thing, in this case, not… it’s what can happen if you don’t take this…

I admit I give great advice in my books, which sometimes even I don’t always take every bit of, for myself, consistently. My friends who buy my books end up quoting my own wise words back to me. I need to re-read them to give myself a refresher! Which I do! I am not perfect and I cock-up every now and then. This has been a major cock-up for my health, but I have learned so much from this experience… and a good lesson to learn. Remove one variable at a time and you get shit, or not – as was the case with the first food, before I added it back.

I never planned to do a health experiment. But what I have learned once again, is to always, always, trust your own judgement, and when something is right, even though it may not be doing what the majority do, keep it! And if others want to be helped too by it, then that’s great! At least you know that you are 100% right, and it works crazily well and can help others if they want it to.

By now I guess you are wondering what luscious food I eat to maintain regular bowel movement and stop yourself from blocking up. So the big reveal… Hazelnut+Cacao Paleo Bars, which you can get here https://amzn.to/3erQksx They are made of fruits and nuts only, cold pressed, no crap, just good food to feed your body! And better than eating chocolate. Also suitable for vegetarians and gluten free.

If you want to know the other food ingredient, to not just get healthier skin, but to decrease inflammation in multiple areas of your body, and provide less pain and more body flexibility, get a copy of my Fibromyalgia Self-Help Handbook. Why get the book? Because it also has a whole holistic plan, for managing Fibromyalgia, so if you have a chronic pain condition although you need this essential food, you also need it as part of a holistic health regime I go through in each chapter of the book, to have less pain, more energy, feel happier, and not just eat this and do nothing else. If you haven’t got your copy yet, get it now, before it’s too late and you end up in pain with no remedy to get your life back on track. Here is the link https://amzn.to/2DuR9nn

Even if you don’t have Fibro, it can still help to reduce your pain and give you more energy, so you feel happier, https://amzn.to/2DuR9nn

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

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.
