My 2016 year review and what’s to come! 

Although 2016 has been a terrible year in many ways, it has also been a great year for many. 

Brexit, Trump, celebrity deaths – we all have our reasons for hating 2016, but there are also reasons for people to look back with pride. But the amount of celebrity deaths has been shocking for this year! 

Whether your year has been made by personal achievement, a heartwarming story in the news, or from something as simple as the release of a film, TV show or song, embrace it. 

For me personally, I’ve had a year full of ups and downs, mostly ups, and in terms of my writing it’s been very satisfying. 

Deception: A Love of Lies Goodreads T. J. Blake

My psychological thriller, Deception, has not disappointed. It has received nothing but praise, and has an average rating higher than my other books across Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes & Noble ; which I’m extremely proud of. 

There was also the release of my short dark fantasy story, Alive, which I’m very happy with because just like Deception, it’s a genre I’m not used to. 

For you reading this right now, try something new for next year. If you want to try something new and it’s out your comfort zone, just do it, you have nothing to lose. And who knows, it may pay off!

Roll on 2017 I say, and roll on the final book of my book series, The Endurance Series, coming in the New Year! 

Happy New Year everyone!

Our Christmas decorations are up! 

No doubt everyone knows that Christmas is just around the corner now. Shops, homes and streets across the globe have been decorated in lights, tinsel, glitter, fake snow, stars, reindeers and Christmas trees. 

My home is no different. The living room currently looks like Santa’s grotto – dominated by blue, red and the classic warm gold lighting of the fairy lights; wrapped around the tree. Not forgetting the gleaming tinsel as well!

   
   
With the current chilly and wintry weather here in the UK, it’s really helping me to imagine myself as Billy when writing Deception. It’s currently snowing in the book and of course, the weather won’t stop Billy from taking his daily stroll in his woodlands!
