Buckle up!

Book Ideas Coming fast and strong....

I have so many book ideas that I can't get them down fast enough.... I mean im halfway through writing Ally in Disguise, I have a indepth outline of my next book Kitty LaLa hashed out, the makings of an idea for the next one and then more ideas keep coming... I don't want to overload myself and my precious and limited time but I am scared that I will forget them and the way they make me feel so I am just running with it all moving around in my brain and trying to function as a normal person.... its hard to not get lost in my head where the stories become like memories and then in internet land where I seem to spend a fair amount of time..... writing is amazing....pitty its not real life!

what have I been up too?

Hmmm well alot actually.
Today I have~
spent about 4 hours reading other peoples blogs. I swear when I came out the other side I felt elation and drive to make my blog better, concentrate on my content and just keep at it. I thoroughly enjoyed many blogs today and I am so happy that the internet exists..for without it I would not be able to connect with so many like minded people..... for a full list of the blogs I follow click my profile.
So anyway other than that I have finished reading Adrian Mole~ and the Weapons of Mass Destruction (about 140 pages), started reading Cathy Kelly's Best of Friends, read Rolling Stone Magazine from cover to cover, wrote in my diary, tweeted, facebooked, myspaced, hopped on goodreads my new fav book/reading site, and written this blog.....awesome for a Sunday!

Suggest a book - the fourth installment.

Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, get ready for the summer debut of the year...When you're running away from a broken heart, there's only one place to go...Adjusting tiaras at the foot of the aisle, Angela and her best friend prepare for the wedding of the year. But events don't go as planned. And when a girl is in possession of a crumpled bridesmaid dress - and can't go home - New York (for the very first time) seems like an excellent idea. Angela's new friend Jenny Lopez gives Angela a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps, and a makeover. Who hasn't dreamed of starting afresh with a sassy New York wardrobe, a new haircut and a trip to the make-up counter? Before she knows it, the new Angela is getting over her broken heart by having dinner with two different boys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her fabulous new blog. But it's one thing telling readers all about your romantic dilemmas. It's another trying to figure them out for yourself! Warm, funny and unputdownable, I Heart New York is an unforgettable debut.


loved this book......def my type of book...light easy reading that made me smile. Loved the fact that she has a blog which I can relate too......

The two girls talked to each other but seemed reluctant to add anything to the general conversation...

um maybe because your all douches?

I felt embarrassement, suspicion and boredom.

But that is my life.
Embarrassement for caring too much about people and things that don't care about me. There is only so many times you can put yourself out there before you realise that your just embarrassing yourself, and although I think it can be humbling to feel embarrassement - it's not fun on a regular basis.
Suspicion comes from realising how many people are fake assholes in my life an because I want to travel, and see things, experience things, live things. That's why I write to escape all this bullshit that claims to be life!
Without writing I would implode.......


People that claim to be better than others are just douchbags disguised as people...

One sided conversations.

Frigging Hell, is it so hard to reply to people?
I know I have previously spoken on this subject but it really really annoys me.........
It can be really annoying when you send a text or try and communicate with said person and its like you dont even exist...I feel like I am in a parallel universe, one where I am the only person that actually cares about anyone elses feelings. How fucking hard is it to reply to a simple text message or two I dont want a kidney I just want to say hi. And then when I have gone out of my way to congratulate someone on an achievement of there's still nothing. Not a simple thanks or anything..... its like trying to have a friendship albiete a strange one and its all one sided....

I'm a little bit sarcastic!

I am known to be, on various occasions to be a bit sarcastic. I have also been told I have an interesting sense of humor, one that my best friend Jodie totally gets. We are so alike some people find our conversations unreadable, others dont get it.
It is funny how we gravitate to like minded people in friendships.....

Do you have trouble being faithful to one book at a time?

Suggest a book - the third installment!


Becky Bloomwood has what most twenty-five-year-olds only dream of: a flat in London's trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is, she can't actually afford it --- not any of it. Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine not only bores her to tears, it doesn't pay much at all. Still, how can she resist that perfect pair of shoes? Or the divine silk blouse in the window of that ultra-trendy boutique? But lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the Endwich Bank --- letters with large red sums she can't bear to read --- and they're getting ever harder to ignore. She tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But none of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something ... just a little something ...

Finally, a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life --- and the lives of those around her --- forever.


Yes this book was made into a movie - and it was pretty good too. My dream is to get a book made into a movie - but its just one step at a time for me...have to get the first one in my hands first...not long now. You may be asking yourself why would you read the book if you can just get the movie...shame on you - firstly if your thinking this you arent really a true reader...a reader would always read the book anyway or first..because as we readers know the book is always better than the movie...there are many reasons for this being so which I will not delve into here. Maybe that would make a good blog post!
Anyway read the book....

Dialogue about talent and self doubt

Here is a dialogue between two Hollywood script writers about talent and self doubt.

Laeta Kalogridis: Even the best writers think they’re terrible on bad days (or, you know, every day). Every aspiring writer has to walk the tightrope between having enough confidence to believe they have talent and something worthwhile to say, and being able to recognize when their writing is not working. Writers write. Nothing stops them. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily get paid.

Jim Kouf: You never know if you have talent. You’re testing yourself with every script, so I never assume I’ve solved any riddles. I just keep trying to write something well.

Discipline and work is the refining fire which turns talent into ability.

Press Release - Gold Digger

PRESS RELEASE – Upcoming Release Available for Pre-Order
‘Gold Digger’ Sets the Gold Standard for Romantic Adventure
Three ultimately different and independent women – a Gold Digger, a reporter and a high society princess are forced together through a whirlwind of lies, cheating, and betrayal. From Wichita Falls, Texas, to the golden beaches of California and the bustling city of New York, Bridgette’s life is an orchestrated rise from rags to riches. Angie pursues her dreams of becoming a top reporter at The New York Times, while Elizabeth lives an extravagant existence as daughter to one of the richest men in America and wife to a millionaire mogul.
Bridgette longs for a life of luxury and a man to provide it. She moves from man to wealthy man, seeking a fairytale ending. Even Elizabeth’s husband is not free from her clutches. Angie, Bridgette’s only childhood friend, has dreamt of being a reporter for The Times for as long as she can remember. Finally her dreams and hard work pay off, but one of Angie’s assignments is writing about her old friend Bridgette, a woman who has stealthily clawed her way to the top. Can she write the story?
Elizabeth grows up in the lap of luxury and marries the man of her dreams. But Adam’s affair with Bridgette is about to be exposed to the world. Is her dream about to become her nightmare? This glitzy novel blends all three women’s stories into a book that is pure gold.

Suggest a book part deux!

It's not as if Nel hadn't enough on her plate already: organising a farmers' market in the picturesque Paradise Fields and keeping track of her unnervingly beautiful teenage daughter - plus sorting out a houseful of animals - are quite enough to keep her busy. The last thing she needs is another complication in her life, but when her old friend Sir Gerald dies and his son, Pierce - accompanied by his glamorous American wife - takes possession of The Big House, it seems that preserving the Fields is not on his list of priorities. Nel takes up arms, determined to fight for the meadow and the market she loves. But whom can she trust? She's pretty sure her friends Sacha and Vivian are on her side, but her sensible boyfriend Simon, an estate agent, is less encouraging. And then there's Jake, the exaspering yet attractive stranger who kissed her under the mistletoe. Maybe she's been a not-so-merry widow for far too long.


This was a really cute book and I really enjoyed it. It isnt the usual racey fast paced book I go for but it was a nice change. You have to change it up....you would get bored if you read the same sort of book every time. I always need to have a break and read something different in between the crazy ones I tend to go for....

It's all about the 80's

Loved the 80's

This time I'm telling you....

That my book is going to be in my hands soon.....I'm actually going to be holding a copy of my gorgeous new book Gold Digger.
I swear i'll probably cry, and so I should. My dream is coming true. It's the first of many books that I hope to get published...if your interested in purchasing a copy please click this link....
Gold Digger Novel by Tara Anderton

They talk shit all night.

The talking of shit is a tradition of sorts with me and my best friend Jodie. We constantly talk about everything and anything, discussing in depth randomness.
We talk so much shit, we should honestly tape it - surely its nearly a comedy act, and if not that, it would so make an awesome show about two girls who constantly dribble on about any subject. One of us randomly picks a topic, not on purpose, although it could feel like that to an outsider, and I swear where we end up, is like we are in our own little trip bubble. It can start out innocent enough and then builds and builds, until its alive. (What started out as a conversation turns into life,) whats real and whats not.
Its like staright narnia down their man!

Please stop wearing them if it looks like they are being eaten by your vagina, Baboon's arses, girls who try to be gangsta, pickles on cheeseburgers, people who dont wash their hands after using the bathroom, flying bugs, sand in my sunscreen, hairy toes on girls, men in short shorts and unclean ears.

Some people view books with a deep suspicion!

I find this quiet disturbing because books that I love are the most amazing things in the world. How could anyone not want to read? The imagination is ignited, and it is such an awesome experience to be lost in the pages of a good book.
My life wouldn't make sense without them!

Exert from Adrian Mole - The Cappuccino Years by Sue Townsend

'At junction eighteen I ran out of opal fruits, so I pulled into the services and bought three packets. Are the manufacturers putting something extra in them?Something addictive? I seem to be getting through rather alot of them lately . The other night I woke at 3am and was distraught to discover that there wasn't a single opal fruit in the flat. I tramped te streets of Soho looking for them.
Within two minutes of leaving home I was offered lesbian sex, heroin and a rolex watch, but an innocent packet of opal fruits took over half an hour to track down . What does it tell us about the world we live in.'

what does a book contain.....

I thought you had a bad marriage? I never said that! You where fucking me under water, I just assumed!

Are people really ment to get married? Is there only one person for everyone? I personally don't think so..... more like a heap of possible soul mates for one person and its how you choose to proceed is what this is really all about.
Our lives aren't ment to be tied to one person. It's not the 50's people!
You think you need to get married, the wedding, the honeymoon - 'The Jones'! Your happy for a while, maybe a fair while...then the marriage starts to show cracks...your spending less time with each other, kids appear as if out of nowhere and take over your life!
 Life continues on and your stuck in a limbo land... working, coming home, working, watching TV, your lonely, your bored, your a robot. Days drift into months, and years...your now uninterested in anything they say and find yourself rolling your eyes alot...you now have nothing in common....your friends become more important and interesting to talk to than spending quality time together, and you realised you haven't asked how there day was in months and you dont really care one way or another....

 Affairs happen without people even comprehending they were unhappy, until it all unravels in their laps. They where just drifting along and then boom there alive again...... for a moment, a second a day.
Sometimes it makes them realise they love there partner but needed a wakeup call, others leave, some keep doing it and stay fearing the unknown, others embrace this. Some lie, some confess, some care, some dont.
But ultimately things change, end, stop, start, we have no way of knowing if its forever so why bother locking into marriage....clinging to a word that won't matter if its over..if its going to end it will, a peice of paper and memories of a white dress isnt going to change that.
Alot disagree but I have a funny feeling I'm right...the proof is all around us...the divorce rate is out of control and no one is prepared to settle. Today especially, marriage is something that shouldn't exist or define us.

I believe in relationships...and I think they can last for months, years and even decades but no, I dont think it will last forever. There will come a time when you both change - or one does, wanting other things and its either settle and eventually tolerate each others annoying habits, disagree over everything and end up doing most things appart. Your left wondering where it all went. When was it okay to just sit back and let yourself be half alive?

you can count on me to misbehave!

A great library....

One day I hope I have a library like this...I am working on it. But I only have ....um how many books do I own? I'm going to count right now.....

I have 327 books.... for some reason it looks like more ..but its not. I'm a little bit dissapointed...I used to have more but people borrow them and don't return them, also I gave a heap away for some reason a while ago, but now I want a collection to be proud of .....
 so many books that I dont know what to do with them! that is my new mission - to start a library to be proud of!

The mark of an educated mind!

The above is so true, I have so many times when I am having a conversation with someone, and I totally dont agree with what they are saying, but I let them roll with it. Just because I dont agree, doesn't mean I cant listen, and let them get their point of view and it doesnt mean I am wrong. Also sometimes I can see what there saying and think its valid but I also have a valid point.....

Press Release Forms

Finally managed to fill out the three hour long form to send to my Publishers SBPRA! (alot of writing and research was required and then three hours spent filling it all in) I am very proud of myself and even managed to slot a nice photo in for my book jacket! Very excited for the next step in getting my new novel Gold Digger published and on book shelves in no time!

Are you just saying it cause it sounds good..or do you really think like that?

Interestingly enough, some people feel the need to pretend they are interested in certain topics and ideas and things when really their not. They portray or try to portray an image that makes them think they belong to a group of people, type or subject when really they dont have a clue who they are or what they want and where they want to be. They have fooled around on the net and thought that they would start telling people that they are a writer, music producer or artist of some sort and just run with it. EG My name is Peirre and I am a struggling artist - in other words my name is peter I live with my mum and I check out art on the net all day instead of getting out there and being a real person. Pierre then heads over to a party that he somehow got an invite to and spends hours telling anyone that will listen that he spends hours sketching, painting and doodling his cool designs......

Book Covers

After undertaking my usual in - depth research on the topic, looking in my bookcase at home (I read alot of books in the same genre) I have concluded that I am going to go for something striking but plain, not busy and too much going on for my new book Gold Digger. However SBPRA (my publisher) have only asked for my ideas, this in no way means they are going to use any of them. So I have come up with a few realy cool nideas and am sending them off tomorrow. Hopefully my cover comes out really awesome...

Suggest a book!

Iv'e decided that I will start recomending some books for you to read that I have enjoyed or read...I'm not sure weather I will include reviews or let you just decide for yourself....

First up I can't go past Danielle Steel.... (the link to her website can be found in the side bar along with outher authors that I find interesting or talented..this will be changed monthly of you want to come back and check it out every now and again.)

In this beguiling new novel, Danielle Steel tells the story of three very different people, each of whom, on the same day, reaches a crucial turning point in life - a rite both bittersweet and full of hope, a time to blow out the candles, say goodbye to the past, and make a wish for the future.

Valerie Wyatt is the queen of gracious living and the arbiter of taste. Since her long-ago divorce, she's worked hard to reach the pinnacle of her profession and to create a camera-ready life in her Fifth Avenue penthouse. So why is she so depressed? All the hours with her personal trainer, the careful work of New York's best hairdressers, cosmetic surgeons, and her own God-given bone structure and great looks can't fudge the truth or her lies about it: Valerie is turning sixty.

Valerie's daughter, April, has no love life, no rest, and no prospect of that changing in the foreseeable future. Her popular one-of-a-kind restaurant in downtown New York, where she is chef and owner, consumes every ounce of her attention and energy. Ready or not, though, April's life is about to change, in a tumultuous transformation that begins the morning it hits her: She's thirty. And what does she have to show for it? A restaurant, no man, no kids.

Jack Adams once threw a football like a guided missile. Twelve years after retiring from the NFL, he is the most charismatic sports analyst on TV, a man who has his pick of the most desirable twentysomething women. But after a particularly memorable Halloween party, Jack wakes up on his fiftieth birthday, his back thrown out of whack, feeling every year of his age.

A terrifying act of violence, an out-of-the-blue blessing, and two extremely unlikely love affairs soon turn lives inside out and upside down. In a novel brimming with warmth and insight, beginning on one birthday and ending on another, Valerie, April, and Jack discover that life itself can be a celebration - and that its greatest gifts are always a surprise.
All synopsis' for my reviews will come from Goodreads which is a book app that I use on a daily basis. Once you sign up you can add ooks to your reading list, find books you want to read, add similar people, join reading groups, create reading challenges and heaps more. I love Goodreads.

A disappointing neck rub is even more frustrating than blah sex, because you cant finish it off for yourself!

I don't really get the opportunity to get a massage very often, and when I do its like all my Christmas's have come at once well most of the time....

My favourite was a Kahuna Massage that lasted a heavenly two hours. I was completely naked apart from a small piece of soft cloth that I was asked to place between my legs..... ummm shit. I undressed as the lady discretely turned to prepare her oils and I positioned myself face down on the standard looking massage table. The obligatory soft music was playing through the speakers and I tried to relax.... OMG I didn't have to try very hard.... I was touched, stroked and handled like I was a piece of gold, with mostly her whole body sliding up and down mine. From the tips of my toes the 'massage godess' did things to me that I didn't know could feel so good. She even massaged my hair. She awakened in me something I didn't know was there - am I a lesbian?? No!
But I defiantly felt something.... she was sliding all over my naked body it was a little off putting because my mind was going crazy with questions of what I was feeling, and then she asked me to turn over. I shyly flipped over and she continued massaging. It was very sensual and beautiful. Her arms slid up and down, her elbows and her shoulders where all massaging my stomach my breasts and my neck. I felt like I was floating on a cloud.
Then she was done..... and I was disappointed and relaxed and happy and freaked out. She told me to take my time getting up and then I was too shower and wash my hair and come out whenever I was ready. When I emerged flushed from the massage room to pay her - I felt very shy. I payed, thanked her and got the hell out of there.
I never saw her again - but Jesus Christ I wont forget that massage for as long as I live!

Years later,  I stupidly found myself at a shopping centre and got talked into getting a massage from a Chinese masseuse claiming that he could fix all the knots in my back and make me feel amazing. I helplessly handed over my $20 and sat down. He was pretty convincing. FUCK! Lets just say I hobbled away feeling horrendous, with a possible pinched nerve and a back that looked like someone had Chinese burned my skin like they where ringing out washing. This butcher had rapped my back with his callous hands and vigorous movements and for a week I thought he may have done permanent damage!  Thankful I made a full recovery but have made a mental note that a massage at a shopping centre is not an option.


My idea of heaven.....just add a bottle of wine (red) a plate of cheeses with crackers and bread and a really cute guy to lay my head on as a pillow....... a girl can dream can't she????
