First Ever Author Radio Interview

Hi everyone

Another action packed week for me.

I had my first ever Author radio interview yesterday on Radio Tircoed. It’s a community radio station based in Swansea in the UK. It covers Swansea and South Wales locally, and is broadcast around the world on the internet. The presenter; was a good interviewer. He was great at asking me the right questions, to enthuse my audience about my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work – An A-Z ‘How To’ guide. It well very well, especially considering the presenter’s phone line was quiet, and at one point I couldn’t hear what he was asking me.

I had two more book sales in a couple of days. One from the UK, by a person I hadn’t heard from in about 8 months; until connecting back through a forum update on my status, the day before. The other from someone in France; and I still don’t know who that was who bought it. All the other buyers of my book; have told me they bought it. So thank you to that person, whoever you are, I appreciate it.

I spent a couple of days this week working on my book trailer. Even thought last time we met, we thought that filming was over; me and my director/producer/editor, filmed two more scenes that are essential to the storyline. We chose music for the trailer – I chose beforehand and he agreed, which was great. It’s mighty powerful music that I bought the license to use. We also changed the movie clips around and I rewrote some of my script for the voiceover and re-recorded it. I cannot stress enough, that this is a book trailer like no other. Crossing two/three genres of subject matter – Redundancy Motivation/Inspiration. I like to quirk it up and help people as much as I can.

Have I mentioned I don’t do normal?

Thanks for continuing to support my journey into print. I am about to upload the contents of my book; for the printed version. The book cover still needs to be resized; and custom ISBNs need to be bought, to be published under my own imprint of Quirky Books. My Kindle edition is published by Quirky Books.

BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY BOOK CONTENT EXCLUSIVE:

“Having always been a creative individual, I have a passion for the visual and communication. I love to connect with people, be it through imagery or the word. Having started out my work life in Retail, I relished in helping people and managing a team, until I followed my First Class Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree, which lead me to venture into a more creative career field, becoming a Digital Designer. I enjoyed this role immensely, and so was heartbroken when I was made redundant in January 2013. However, after nine weeks of hard work, persistence and networking (which is how I came to work with Sandra on this project), I broke through the barriers of redundancy and became a Digital Content & Design Assistant, and within one year, had been promoted to Digital Content Manager at a well renowned digital agency, working for a household name luxury brand. I am now happy in my new role, and looking forward to the future with my fiancé, having put redundancy blues behind me.”

I am on about the 7th reformat for Amazon, in the Amazon Kindle previewer mode. Not long now!

Quirky Academy UK is Live and Launched


Quirky Academy UK
Quirky Academy UK Website

I just launched Quirky Academy UK – It will focus more on my products in comparison to Quirky Academy .com, that focuses more on my courses, classes, workshops and services – Starting with my Break Through the barriers of redundancy book.

I had a great time in London. Nick Vujicic was fantastic, and I got my photo taken with author Andrew Matthews, who signed all 3 of the books I bought from him. I told him I like to write and he listened to me about what my Break through the barriers of redundancy was about, and said I was well placed to write the book, having been made redundant twice myself. This is great motivation.

I went straight back into work and I am chocca at the mo. Photos and video/s to follow. It’s almost 4.30am and I have to get up for my day job in just over 3 hours, and I haven’t been to sleep yet.

Stay quirky and write soon
