Nomination Wednesday – One of the Greatest Authors in a Generation

Welcome to another Nomination Wednesday post, where we take a look on the people who have inspired everyone around the world.

This week’s nomination goes to J.K. Rowling – the fabulous, famous author Harry Potter, whose book series had transformed many young readers from the late 20th, into the 21st Century.

I won’t do an “About” page because I know that everyone knows about J.K. Rowling. So, I’ll be moving onto the reason why section…

Why Did I Nominate J.K. Rowling?

I have always been a fan of the Harry Potter series, since I was a child. But, I never knew about the challenges that J.K. Rowling had to face before their first book was published. Harry Potter was turned down by 12 publishers before one accepted.

I found out that this information through a television movie I watched years ago, called Magic Beyond Words. Although the movie depicts sense of her life (even if some of them aren’t true), it gives an idea of what an inspirational, talented and creative author she has become. J.K. Rowling will sincerely inspire many authors for generations to come – proof that anything is possible, when people think that achieving is impossible.

She certainly has proved them wrong. May her books reign the bookshelves in years to come. 🙂

Publishing Novels and Thinking Thoughts

Last Post: https://actingmylife.wordpress.com/2015/07/25/should-i-publish-a-novel/

From my last post about whether I should or shouldn’t publish a novel, I decided to give this aspiration the go-ahead. And I want to publish my Waiting for a Rainbow blog posts.

I’ve also done a lot of thinking with this decision – should I just rewrite my first post series or should I do this and add my latest Catching Dreams entries alongside it?

What do you guys think? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.

My Summer Reading Bucket List (2015) (*UPDATE*)

Update: Finished reading my second novel; just written the review. To read see below:

As an author, it’s always important to read many good books. For me, that’s been hard as I always leave it after reading the first chapter or in the middle of the novel. But this year, I’ve decided to change my ways and trying to read as many as I can. Some, I might read again (ones that are highlighted in bold) and there’ll be new books to look at too. Here are my top books to read this summer:

  1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin
  2. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
  3. Girl Online by Zoe Snugg
  4. Bridget Jones – Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding
  5. Geek Girl by Holly Smale
  6. Jane – the Woman Who Loved Tarzan by Robin Maxwell
  7. P.S. I Love You by Cecelia Ahern
