Reality Byte

After seeing Lane's fabulous mini-movie Surgery (if you haven't already do go and check it out, it's brilliant) I was inspired - or should I say distracted - to try it for myself.



If you're tempted to give it a go - don't. It's addictive.

Absolutely hilarious, Karen... And I love Lane's too. I did one of my own a while back - but not being that funny I hid it deep within my Facebook page! Don't try to find it, you will regret it :-))
Karen said…

I might have to check yours out now :o))

So frustrating. They dont want to download, so i can't see them!
Karen said…
debs - I think you need Adobe Flashplayer on your system or something - might be worth downloading, then again it might not :o)
Lane said…
Love it! I didn't know you were American!
And you look so glam too:-)

JJ Beattie said…
Brilliant. BUT. I AM NOT SUCCUMBING TO THIS. I'M NOT. I'M NOT....
Karen said…
Oh go on- I'd love to see it!!
Edward said…
Lawks, what a laff. I love the way it's so deadpan. By the way, thanks for alerting me to that interloper on my blog - tsk tsk. You're in pride of place now!
Jean said…
You and Lane have had me laughing my socks off with these.
Oh God no, another fabulous one. I'm just going to have to give it a try! x
AARRGH I've just spent all afternoon doing it. Forget twitter! I've found my new procrastination tool! Pope over to mine for the result!
That is brilliant Karen, I have got to have a go at that!

That's brilliant - I love the smug way the man says 'little lady'... I want to keep that bit in my pocket!

Oh God. I really am going to have to do one now. Oh God. GOD! You see what you've done now, you and that Lane?!
Lorna F said…
So, Lead-Us-Astray Lane and Cute 'Little Lady' Karen, you are the devilish duo responsible, once again, for waylaying the literary ambitions of your blogging peers - is this a plot? Do the two of you plan to get published by making sure nobody else writes another word of their WiPs? Cunning,eh?
Jane Smith said…
Pah. I am defeated, once again, by the demons who live in my dial-up modem and exist only to stop me watching all the fun stuff on the internet.

Karen, thanks for bringing me here via my pitch party: your first link was a little broken but I've tried again for you, and think it's OK now.
Yvonne said…
That is hilarious Karen! That's such a nifty little program.
womagwriter said…
I showed this to my 11-year old and he has done nothing but make movies ever since...

Love yours, very funny!
I tried it. I stink at movie making! But I still had fun! A lot!
FPDuck said…
Wonderful! If only I hadn't agreed to go into work early...

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…

It's (not-even-nearly) the Season to be Jolly...

I know it's only September, but my new book THE BEACHSIDE CHRISTMAS is out today. It's the final in the Beachside series and writing three books in a year means I've been pretty immersed in this world.
10 things that stand out about writing this series are...
1. The Beachside Sweet Shop gave me the perfect opportunity to make some coconut ice. I used to help make it with my grandmother growing up, and it tasted exactly as I remembered
2. Also, in the course of research, I tried eating pear-drops to see whether I’d grown to enjoy them – I haven’t. I always preferred chocolate and still do.
3. Shipley, the setting for the series, is based on Swanage in Dorset, one of my favourite places to visit, but I changed the name so I could use some fictional license when it came to naming and placing pubs and shops. 
4. I don’t have green fingers so there was plenty of research involved in writing The Beachside Flower Stall. I loved learning the meanings and symbolism of various flowers …
