It's Happened, Ladies and Gents...

I have bitten the bullet and published The Remnants. 

To be perfectly honest, I have always had trouble with this one as I never felt like it gelled properly. It has seen so many drafts and so many eyes, and I just decided to bite the bullet and publish it, whether or not it is perfect.

Read the first two chapters (of all my books) here.


I'm not sure if I'm particularly proud of it or not, if I'm honest, but it is up to you to judge now.

SYNOPSIS:
Germany has defeated the Allies, won WWII in Europe and cleansed the territory of undesirables. Yet the war in the Far East still wages on. Welcome to the future of Germania.

16-year-old Stella Engel has lived her entire life in a sheltered, but comfortable middle class existence within the Reich where she has made lifelong friends and fostered her love of science. For most of her childhood, she has hoped to grow up to serve the Reich as a doctor. Her high achievements have earned her a place at the annual Eugenics Competition, where only the best and brightest students in science are invited to compete, securing their future in a high ranking medical school. However, her trip is marred when her best friend Pia, and Pia's entire family, suddenly go missing. After searching for her friend to no avail, something even stranger happens: the Eugenics Competition is interrupted by the mass arrest of all of the contestants. They are now under suspicion of carrying "dirty" genes, or the genes of those the Reich has convinced the public have long been eradicated. Stella's mother helps her manage to flee from the SS temporarily, where Stella learns that nothing in the Reich is as it seems; and that includes Stella herself.  

Praise So Far:
"The portrayal of the victorious Germania was excellent, the characters were well rounded and interesting, the story built and built...

I honestly couldn't find a fault.This book has all the makings of a bestseller, I could see it being read and discussed in schools. Really hope there's a book two and soon!"

Just, You Know, Giving Away a Canon T5i!

Hey friends!! It's been many months since we've done a camera giveaway here on the blog, and I have had so many people asking when we'll be doing one again that I couldn't wait to stick on on here. There's one big difference with this giveaway from all the others though, and it's that we're not giving away a Rebel T3i today, we're giving away a Canon t5i!
It's an amazing feeling to send off such an amazing camera to one of you guys, knowing what a massive difference it will make for your blog or shop, or just every-day photography in general:) Even better than that though, is introducing so many of you to this group of such lovely shops, and such hard-working and inspiring woman! I can't tell you how relationships online have influenced my life for the better, so make sure to take a minute and go say hi!

Three Days in Rome Day 2

Our second day in Rome was a bit more on the ancient side, although we ended up spending most of the day walking. I'm exhausted thinking about how far we got...

Dutch Make-Up

While I was in Amsterdam, I got to pick up some Dutch (and German) make-up from a brand I used to use when I lived there called Catrice and one from the HEMA beauty store. HEMA, for those of you not familiar, is a store that sells all of its own brand, but sells a little bit of everything (like Target, Tesco, K-Mart, etc.). I haven't delved too much into their beauty products, but since I was doing a swap with A Journey East (more to come on that later), I thought I would pick some things up. Of course I ended up getting some stuff for myself. 

Here are my little goodies (not the best photo, I know!):

A Few Days in Amsterdam
