It's EASTER TIME so time for chocolate eggs and hot cross buns!

 That's right it's Easter this weekend and I have decided to take two weeks off due to ANZAC day being right after it so I'll be having the next two weeks off gorging myself on chocolates and hot cross choc chip buns and hopefully there will be news on two more books being released.

In the meantime check out my other books, including the newly released Dream It, Write It, Publish It! An Australian Guide To All The Hard Parts No One Tells You About Self-Publishing (my baby's one month old already, where has the time gone!), and my first three novels before they get a spruce up.

Have a good one everyone.

AUTHORS I FOLLOW: Jackie Collins

As an author it's almost a required right of passage to follow other authors, be it famous ones you read, ones you know personally, ones who are starting out like you and you meet in groups or clubs.

I have followed a few over the years, not only their blogs and websites but their Facebook, Instagram, Twitter accounts.

Of course, for the first Author I Follow, it had to be the woman who inspired my very first book, The Road To Vegas. Jackie Collins, who has five, yes that's five (pics below), offices in her gorgeous Hollywood mansion, see more on that here.

You can follow Jackie at her website jackiecollins.com, her Twitter, her Facebook or her Instagram account.

Australian Fashion Week model, Cassi Van Den Dungen, and her followers need to understand skeletal is not okay

Sydney Fashion Week took a turn for the worse this week when designer, Alex Perry, had his show. Strutting her stuff down the catwalk (on the right) was model, Cassi Van Den Dungen, looking a gaunt, shadow of her former self.

As usual over the last five to ten years, every time there is a thin model on the runways people get up in arms over the thinness of the girls modelling the clothes and how we need to change the rules for modelling. 

And every year no one does anything.

Cassi hit back after the controversy by posting multiple pictures of food during the day, claiming they were breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

It's all uneaten and posting a pic of food and claiming it's lunch does not make it so. It also does not prove she actually ate anything.

She has hit back at people on Twitter and Instagram with hashtags such as #hatersgonnahate and #Iamwhoiam, #dealwithit and accusing everyone of bullying.

Unfortunately many of her followers all believe she looks beautiful, she's not too thin, that everyone is different and we all need to deal with it.

Considering the difference in her old shot and now, there is no way in hell that this is natural for her. Stop using the "fast metabolism" excuse, STOP using the "I am who I am" excuse, STOP using the "this is the way I am naturally" excuse because it's all a load of BULLSHIT.

No one is bullying you Cassi. They are stating a very sad fact because of what they see thanks to what you are portraying. A young girl looking gaunt, skeletal, anorexic and in need of help to get healthy. This is not bullying, it is a very sad fact.

And to all the followers who believe it's wrong, you're as deluded as she is and want to blame the rest of us and use excuses for the rest of your life.

I am sick and tired of people claiming they are naturally thin when they are not. Obesity and anorexia are not natural and not okay. Go back to cavemen times, we were an average size, not too thin and not too fat.

To Cassi and all of her followers, pull your God damn heads out of your anorexic backsides and grow a fucking brain. THAT IS NOT HEALTHY and people need to stop feeding her delusions by agreeing with her to make her feel better.

Take a damn good look in the mirror, and for the sake of your son grow the fuck up and get healthy. 

AND GET RID OF YOUR MANAGER BECAUSE SHE'S AS DELUDED AS YOU ARE AND FEEDING YOUR ANOREXIA ISSUE.
