Let Me Help You Write A Book (And Finish It) Too!

I’ve got some exciting news today. I’ve released five new books since the last time I posted here for you! Yep, five! Two of those will remain a secret since they’re under my new outrageously dirty erotica pen name (ahem!) but the other three might just help you write a book if you’ve ever considered getting your own novel out there! So many people asked me about book writing that I decided to write a series of short books to help people on their own publishing journey. Who better than a self-published author to explain to new authors what they … Get the rest

Romance Author – Churns Out Books, Never Writes A Blog!

Pink roses say 'Romance Author', don't they?

I’ve written 100,000 words in the month since I finished working full time. That’s one full-length novel, a book of short stories and a novella. Interestingly, this new romance author hasn’t found the time to write a five hundred word blog post during this same period. That surprises me more than I can tell you! I’ve blogged weekly for years on my travel blog, and suddenly every bit of my writing time is now spent writing novels. So, I’m turning over a new leaf to share some writing information with you at least once a week. I’ll keep you in … Get the rest

Hello everyone! I’m writing in Penang this week and have specifically travelled here to write 60,000 words (or a complete book!)  I’ll only be away for one week and need your help to keep me on track. To make sure I don’t slack off and spend all week eating Roti and getting foot massages I’m running a small giveaway for my loyal readers and subscribers.  All you have to do to win is guess how many words I’ll manage to get written between 8pm 23 May (tonight) and midnight on Monday 30 May, 2016.  The person who guesses closest without … Get the rest

Who Inspires Me The Most?

Who Inspires You The Most?

I’m busy planning my new products to help you write your own book this year and I’m almost ready to release the first one – a couple of hours on the weekend and we are there!  While I’ve been working on it I’ve been thinking about who inspires me the most when I’m hanging out online. You know, you’re busily writing, making lists, pretty checklists and preparing for audio recordings…..and your mind wanders to that cool blog post you just read by one of your favourite online peeps! I figured I’d tell you about the amazing women I know (or … Get the rest

Get Your Book Writing Help Here And Publish Your Book!

So yesterday I told you I am concentrating on book writing help and author platforms (and marketing) this year.  I hope you’re as excited as I am about that!  So what can you expect in the next couple of weeks? I decided to list out the programs I’m going to run instead of keeping you in suspense and drip feeding you the deets.  I’m a little exhausted by all the product launches I endured during the year and my inbox has positively OVERFLOWED this Christmas with a million and one offers!  It’s partly for this reason that I’ve decided to … Get the rest

I’m watching hundreds of people publish their 2015 goal lists or New Year’s resolutions on facebook and on loads of them is the wish to write a book.  I know you’ve seen them too.  What I noticed is that some of … Get the rest

Being Yourself Is The Key To Your Happiness!

Be your crazy self!

Being yourself is so much easier than you might think. And being yourself is so much harder than it seems! I’ve spent years not being myself. Dressing up for job interviews when I knew it was going to kill me to keep up that level of grooming for the years I would work there. Turning over a new leaf to wear more makeup and keep my hair fancily styled and groomed and then chucking it in after 4 weeks or so because it was just too much bloody effort! I had 4 small kids – how was I supposed to … Get the rest

We All Go Off Track Sometimes. This Was My Time!

Bad Tracey Pedersen!

Have you noticed I’ve been M.I.A. for a couple of weeks?  I thought about just writing a cheery new post and not telling you why.  I wondered if anyone would even notice really – maybe I could just press on? But no.  That wouldn’t be me.  I’m an open book type of girl.  I’m the chick that shares her photos that make her look like she’s eating poo——->>> And I firmly believe in sharing all the gory details when things go pear shaped – not just the fun stuff and the great and positive stuff.  Don’t get me wrong – … Get the rest

Don’t worry – that used to be me so I know just … Get the rest

Why Aren’t You Taking ACTION?

It’s not a hard question.  Doesn’t need a long answer. WHY AREN’T YOU TAKING ACTION? Why haven’t you done what you said you would do? Why did you stop half way? Why can’t you seem to get moving now that you’ve stalled? Why haven’t you written that book, published that book, created that online product, started that membership site, lost weight, taken up knitting, finished your nursing course and any number of other things? Whatever answer you’ve just come up with, let me tell you that I’m here to help you. When you don’t take action, you feel yuk!  You … Get the rest
