Concept Album MeMe

This is fun - completely pointless, and nothing to do with writing, but fun. What would your concept album be?

01. Click

The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

02. Click

The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

03. Click

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Here's mine...


Because I Might Be Wrong

Almost makes me want to go out and clinch a record deal. If only I could play the guitar properly...


Air kisses to Tomfoolery for this rather smashing Busy Bee Award, which I definitely don't deserve, but will accept anyway because I'm greedy like that. I'm going to pass it on to Cally, A.Writer and SallyQ for the guilt-inducing amount of writing, editing and subbing they seem to be cramming into every day, while I waft about eating flapjacks. I'm in awe.

Great album title:-)

'Concept Album'. Now there's a phrase I haven't heard for a while!
A. Writer said…
Thank you! xx I'm not sure if I deserve this award but like you I'll accept it anyway! No seriously, thank you! Means a lot!
SallyQ said…
Thanks for the award, Karen.

I can't show the picture, but I tried your meme and my concept album is by a group called Dick Cunningham and is called Invest in Humanity. I quite like that.
HelenMH said…
Oh, I love this and I would soooo buy your album.

My group will be called The Swan, the album is called 'Around Some Other Way', which I quite like. Sadly my cover photo is a crocus which whilst very pretty, seems a little inappropriate for a concept album. I prefer your cover!
CT said…
Oooh thanks Karen :o)

My concept album would be by a band called Smilacaceae.

The title would be "Become famous without ability"

And the picture would be of two women looking at artwork (I really wanted the first photo, of someone with their feet up next to a tv showing an image of someone with their feet up watching TV which I thought was a much more fitting photo for the album title!)

My band's called Eragon, the album's Quite A Different Kind, and the cover is a fab photo of lightning over Sydney Opera House. Off to be signed by Simon Cowell immediately.
Sarah Dunnakey said…
My career as a rock star is over before it has even begun. My band is the snappily titled 'List of tites and honours of Charles Prince of Wales', our album is the enigmatic 'Eye and Denying It' and the cover is of a small child in a flowery hat. Not even in the concept album heaven of the seventies could this outfit have made it.
SallyQ said…
I've had another go ... this is addictive. My group is called Mechanome (sounds like a seventies rock band), my album is 'That Word Is Love' (cool eh?) and my picture is of a kingfisher with a tiny fish in it's mouth. I'm not quite sure what to make of that, but I do like the title of my new album.
KAREN said…
There are some really good titles in there! Quite addictive :o)

Typical... I get-

Bärbel Struppert
Except, Of Course, Language

And a picture of a mountain!

I like yours though... sounds like a proper group/album.

100th Post!

100 posts! This time last year I was a Blogging Virgin. Now I’m a bit of a slag. It’s become the highlight of my week, both reading yours and writing mine. Which means either:

a) I don’t get out much
b) I don’t get out much, or
c) I don’t get out much

(I think it's C)

This was my first ever post. Not a single comment did it receive. I dry-heaved into my hanky for an hour and considered leaving the country. Then I cottoned on to leaving comments in order to entice readers over.

Anticipating disappointment, outrage or (worse) apathy, I was pleasantly surprised to trap some lovely Readers in my cage of blathery nonsense. I nearly threw a Comments Party, but daren't push my luck.

It’s been a real journey, as they say on bad reality TV (is there any other sort?) On the way, I’ve been given some fantastic advice from you lot, as well as from a Real Published Author and more importantly I've learned that…

Q&A with Amanda Brittany

I'm thrilled to welcome Amanda Brittany to my blog today, to talk about her debut thriller Her Last Lie. 

It's been described as 'gripping with a shocking twist' and I can confirm that it is!

(It also has an amazing cover)

Which character in Her Last Lie would you like to meet?
Hi Karen, thank you for inviting me to your blog.
I suppose feisty Roxanne is the character I’d most like to meet. She’s so determined to get to the bottom of things, and appears to be a good friend to Isla.
There are definitely a couple of characters in the book I would hope never to meet.

I know the book has several settings, which did you enjoy writing the most?
I loved writing the second part of the book set in Abisko in Sweden. I visited Abisko a couple of years back, and it was great fun bringing the cold, bleak landscape to life, and describing the way The Northern Lights swoop across the night skies.
Are any of your characters based on people you know?
No, not at all, they all sprang from my imagi…

Guest post - Elise Chidley

Today I’m delighted to welcome author, Elise Chidley to my blog. Elise has written two wonderfully warm and witty novels, The Wrong Sort of Wife and Married with Baggage, and I absolutely loved them both. Intelligent and romantic, as well as funny, they’re peopled with characters you can’t help warming to.

Elise is giving away 2 free copies of The Wrong Sort of Wife and 2 copies of the American version, Your Roots are Showing. If you’d like to leave a comment below I’ll pick the winners at random on Sunday!

So, without further ado …

Elise, when did your writing career begin?

I’ve been writing for a living since my first job as features writer with a national women’s magazine in South Africa, but I started writing fiction after my third child was born. At that stage, I was telecommuting as a staff writer for a publisher of health care magazines, writing three feature stories a week. The pressure of these deadlines, coupled with looking after three small children, was just not sustainable. …
