It's my turn this week to share my story from the Indie Chicks Anthology...
 

From 200 rejections to Amazon top 200!

Sibel Hodge

 

Ever since I was old enough to scrawl my first word, which was Halibaaaaa, I knew I wanted to write books. OK, so the word didn’t actually make sense, and it might take a little longer for me to actually string a whole sentence together, but that didn’t put me off. I was going to write books and no one would stop me…

From when I was really young, my mum ...

 HOW A BIG YELLOW TRUCK CHANGED MY LIFE
(for the better)

An orange peel grapple is a big machine. Excavator on the bottom. Long arm in the middle. And a metal grapple on the end that looks like a horror movie claw. The base spins. The arm moves up and down. The grapple grabs stuff like SUVs and big piles of metal.
You may come across one while driving, and if you have a little boy in the car, you may have to pull over to watch the thing mov...

Belfast Girls One Year On: Bestselling Online.

As a very little girl, I loved writing stories. And I had every intention of becoming a writer in the tradition of Charles Dickens or Jane Austen – a bestseller who also had literary status. But I grew up, married, had four children and a full time job, and still hadn’t managed it.

Until, just over a year ago, my first full-len...

Just me and James Dean

When I was a little girl I used to make up stories at bedtime for my younger sister, Michelle.  The most vivid centered on a boy and a girl who received a piece of gum for Halloween in their trick-or-treat bag, and when they chewed it, they were transported to a magical land where they were granted unlimited wishes.  Even at such a young age, the process of concocting stories was effortless.  My mind revolved like the r...

WRITING FROM A FLOUR SACK
by
Dani Amore

Fact:  I was born on a bathroom floor.  Literally.  My arrival into this world was followed seconds later by an unceremonious drop onto the cold tile of St. John’sHospital in DetroitMichigan.
You see, I was the fifth out of six children.  My mother knew my delivery would be fast, but the nurse at the hospital insisted she go to the bathroom before the doctor arrived.

Later, ...

Trafficked by Sophie Hayes

Posted by sibelhodge on Wednesday, February 1, 2012, In : Book Reviews 
Trafficked: The Terrifying True Story of a British Girl Forced into the Sex Trade


As some of you know, Trafficking is a subject that's very close to my heart. Last year, I wrote Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave to try and raise awareness into a global problem that is going on right under your nose but hardly ever gets any media attention.

Recently, I read Trafficked by the British woman Sophie Hayes, which is her true story of being forced into the trafficking industry, and it really is a must read. Sophie has also started The Sophie Hayes Foundation to raise awareness ...
