Ak-cra on tour in New Zealand – April 2014 #akcra happy snaps #rtaylorward

We had a sensational time holidaying in New Zealand in April.

I like to think of New Zealand as a ‘breath of fresh air’ …..Direct from Mother Nature to You.

It is simply a stunning country full of endless beauty. It is truly a special place to visit. I just love it!

Do yourself a favour and add NZ to your bucket list.

Ak-cra update: “And so….are the Days of Our Lives”…..I feel like I’m caught up in a publishing soap opera #akcra #rtaylorward

“Soooohhhhhh

Hhmmmmmm

Man, the Gods are certainly playing with me.

FINALLY….. after many weeks of (*little cough*) patient waiting my publisher profile has been setup and approved — and cyberspace and I are finally in sync.

YIPPPEEEEE……….

Or at least I thought so.

This is where the Universe comes into play

I’ve just found out that Ak-cra’s sensational cover has too much black in it (***WHHHHHAAAAATTTTTT*****) and will need to be revamped.

INSERT very big SIGH …. from both @Sally Jelbert and myself (okay, okay …..INSERT lots of swearing and screaming).

ALL THIS MEANS ……… is more ‘patience’ will be required on my behalf (and yours) before we can hit the publish button.

Poor Sally is working furiously trying to sort it out (and I thank her enormously for all the talent, effort and hard yakka she has brought to this project).

So…..like my little friend below…… we’ll have to put our heads back, chill out and ‘wait a wee bit longer’.

To those that haven’t read Ak-cra (in manuscript format)….. I promise you the wait will be worth it…..and thanks for sticking with me.

To my beta-readers ………. believe it or not, you will soon have a hard copy in your hot little hands.

Layback koala

Ak-cra Update: Cyberspace has me in a holding pattern #publishingagghh #akcra #rtaylorward #YA

“Meanwhile, back at the ranch …….’

Still in a holding pattern and circling the runway.

My online publishing / author profiles are ‘parked’ in cyberspace and waiting approval (they have been there for quite some time) …….once that happens…… *drum roll please* ……. Ak-cra can be publushed ! !!!!!

I am excited though, received some merchandise today …..not quite as good as a hardcopy book …. but better than nothing 🙂

Ak-cra merchandise

Can we make 100 facebook ‘likes’ before Ak-cra’s publication date? #rtaylorward #akcra #globalwarming #YALit

Chasing 100 facebook likes before Ak-cra’s publication date.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=200488183472072&set=a.200488143472076.1073741833.186193784901512&type=1&theater

A challenge I know …… but hey, if each person asks one other to ‘like’ my facebook page …… then the numbers will take care of themselves 🙂

All the animals featured in this little ‘album’ also feature in Ak-cra. They also, sadly, feature on conservation lists for vulnerable/threatened (etc) species.

And yes………you did (only yesterday) see my favourite turtle (Startle) and koala (Whadda) on my blog. But every time I see them they make me smile, and you can never have too many smiles.

So – if you’re feeling so inclined – – please like my facebook page and help me get to 100 likes before publication date (which is mid December …………….)

December 13- Happy Birthday Taylor Swift – according to my girls, way more imp than Ak-cra pub date closing in :)

A very talented musician and an excellent role model for girls and young women around the globe.

We, as a family, went to see Taylor Swift last week at her Brisbane concert.

My girls loved it (and so did we).

Taylor Swift rocks.

PS…. December 13 means Ak-cra’s mid December publication date is closing in all too fast!!! Stay tuned for more updates.

Because it is Christmas. And because this is SO VERY CLEVER. Go #westjet

Merry Christmas from Westjet 🙂

It is wonderful to see a company ‘go the extra mile’ to put some magic into Christmas.

Well done, great job …. I for one am very impressed.

Shout out to the PR / Marketing team, and bosses of Westjet
