So, for the past two or three articles, I've been telling you all about this wonderful, new blogging magazine called READ MY MIND, which will come out on April 4th.
You may well have been asking yourself, who are the contributors to this magazine? Will they be worth reading and how much will all this cost me?
Well, I can answer the last two questions easily. Read My Mind will be fun, informative and chock-a-block full of the thoughts of some of the best authors, bloggers, and musicians, from all over the world, going around. So, yes, it will be worth reading - Guaranteed.
As to how much the magazine will cost you? I can't stress this enough. It will be ABSOLUTELY FREE and better than that it will have some amazing competitions in it that you can win great exposure and prizes in.
For the first question, let me introduce you to some of the contributors.
AMERICAN AUTHOR ANGEL M.
I am Angel M. and, in February 2008, at the age of 46, I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up. I am a writer and, most recently, a blogger. I have had numerous stories of various genres fighting for position in my imagination for years. Then, one day, I heard a famous author on one of the morning shows tell the world, “If you write a page a day, by the end of a year you will have a book.” Was he talking to me? Sure, he was, the voice in my head replied.
The next day, I invested in a computer and began pouring those stories into the hard drive... with back-ups. Relatively new to the blogging scene, I decided to venture off the beaten path when it came to author interviews. Because we authors tend to be long winded about answering questions, I knew I wanted something geared towards those of us with very short attention spans.
My creation? The #SQUIRREL blog series. Here, I challenge my fellow authors to limit their answers to 7 words, or 7 sentences. But they only have to answer 7 questions, so that can’t be too difficult...right?
BRITISH AUTHOR ELAINE CHISSICK
Hi, I’m Elaine. I was born in Yorkshire, England but I now live with my husband, two of our children and super-loved cat on the English north-east coast. After penning and self-publishing the successful true story, Willing and Able’, explaining the sometimes heart-breaking process of adoption, I went back to the keyboard and began work on the romantic/erotic fiction Ties That Bind, a story I admit has been rattling around my head for the past twenty-something years. Following the recent release of Ties That Harm, and a cover change to both fiction books, I have decided that I need to concentrate on advertising. So, I’ve booked a place at the Indie Lit Fest in Bradford this August.
I'm currently working on a recipe book and a possible new fiction story but, for now, Alexandra and Gabriel's story has been told. As well as writing, I love to read, cook, cycle, and keep in touch with friends and family far and wide. I have an eclectic taste in music, and my favourite film is The Lake House. If you have the time, please visit my blog which, at the moment, is showcasing a whole bunch of fantastic authors.
IRANIAN-SWISS AUTHOR LILY AMIS
My desperate desire for freedom, as a child, war refugee in the eighties, made me become an author. I struggled for almost three decades to be who I am today; a multi-genre author with the goal to entertain and educate readers about important topics in our society.
Why? Because I’m sick and tired of superficial and selfish humans. The world is a great place and humans have everything they need to be happy! And yet, many people are sad, lonely, and isolated. Words like devotion, love, loyalty, family, friendship, togetherness, freedom, trust, hope, and selfless support, are my favourite words of all. If there is a will there is a way!
Putting this online magazine together, with all these amazingly talented, devoted, and lovely authors and artists from all over the world is my way of bringing awareness to the beauty of life, friendship, and our wonderful planet Earth. With my education in publishing, PR, and marketing, I feel I’m finally on the right road and thrilled to have you join me and my team. After all the struggles I went through to find freedom, I now know the key to personal fulfillment is: Believe in yourself no matter what!
AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR RACHEL McGRATH
Hi, I’m Rachel McGrath. I’ve always been a writer, but I have only been a published author for just under two years. As a young girl, I loved to make up stories and plays for my family and friends, and I’ve always had an active imagination.
English was my favourite subject and I had always aspired to become published. However, it was in my late thirties that I really pursued this dream, and I’ve never looked back.
I grew up in Australia and I moved to the United Kingdom in my early thirties. I have held a professional career in the corporate business sector, I’ve travelled extensively and I have lived and loved completely. Perhaps it was the life experience I needed to understand myself better as a writer, but I know that it is my time to be heard. Whether as a hobby or more, being an author is a part of me now, and always will be. I have so many more stories inside of me, and I am excited about what my future can bring. I am also currently working on a dramatic fiction project which I hope to complete before the end of 2017.
So, there we go, that's about half our team, which is enough to be getting on with today. I'll bring you the rest of us next time, but in the meantime, why not click on the link below and sign up for READ MY MIND!
GO ON! I KNOW YOU WANT TO! THERE'S NOTHING TO LOSE
Till next time, have a wonderful, peace-filled day!
EMBRACE THE OPPORTUNITIES LIFE PRESENTS TO YOU AND ALWAYS, ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!
HAVE A GREAT LIFE AND SPREAD THE LOVE!
