2014 in Review



As another year comes to an end the only thing I can think of is it was shit!

Were there any good parts? Not that I remember.

Were there any bad parts? The world was full of them.

We've lost so many celebs this year to death that the in memoriam segments of awards ceremonies are going to be chock full and run quite long.

We've had so many crashes, especially Malaysian, wars started, bombs dropped, countries rampaged, Russian arseholes, female celebs having their clouds rummaged through and personal photos spread across the internet like viral herpes, anger and arguments over sexism, feminism and racism, people fighting over others being mean when they're not, women bitching about other women bitching about what they're wearing, twerking, working, jerking off in public places, the world was full of shit. 

Celebs got together, broke up, separated, divorced, married, had kids, didn't have kids, bared their whole entire body on the cover of a magazine and broke the internet and burned my retinas to the point of never seeing anything ever again....Kim Kardashian.

I really don't remember anything good from this year and certainly nothing happened to me personally, hell I turned 40 not so good, so unless someone can come up with something good that happened, I'm stumped.

Maybe 2014 just wasn't meant to be a good one?

Self-Publishing Books I will be buying and reading over Christmas

Over the summer break I intend to buy books about self-publishing from some of the authors I follow.

While I have my own out, and will be updating it for print publishing next year, there is much to be gained from supporting other self-published/indie authors.

I've already bought the PDF format of Catherine Ryan Howard's Self Printed 3rd edition.





Plus David Gaughran's Let's Get Digital 2nd edition in a bundle with Joanna Penn's How To Market A Book and Sean Platt's and Johnny B. Truant's Write. Publish. Repeat.

I'll also be getting Joanna's other two books Business for Authors and Public Speaking for Authors.

I'm also considering Chuck Wendig's The Kick Ass Writer and 250 Things You Should Know About Writing.

All of these authors know what they're talking about and if you are considering writing or making a career out of it, give them a go.

How To Get Away With Murder is coming to Australia yet it's already bored me shitless!

How To Get Away With Murder intrigued me when I saw it on Entertainment Tonight, so I tracked down somewhere online to watch it and got through the first three episodes before realising I could do without it.

The jumping back and forth bored me shitless and turned me off. As much as I love a good murder and the part where her husband turns up dead and it could be her students that did it reeled me in, it got old, fast. 

I'd rather read a synopsis of each episode and then I'd still know what happened without having to sit through it.

The students are annoying, especially miss bitchy pants (the black girl, can't even remember her name), the guys are annoying, the other chick is annoying and slept with Frank, ugh, the blond chick is in love with Viola's husband and she's doing the dirty with a cop. And does anyone else think that wig on her is horribly awful? Her real hair is so much better and makes her look so much younger and gorgeous. That wig just makes her look....short...

SER.IOUS.LY!

I'm over it, as I said, rather read a synopsis.
