L.J. Diva's 2017 Writing Plan and some great quotes from Debbie Gibson and Kristine Kathryn Rusch ⋆ L.J. Diva

Last year I released three short stories and an anthology under T.K. Wrathbone, as well as the paperback edition. I also released #teenblogger to paperback under Tiara King and released the three Porn Stars books across September and October, after writing them in April and May, with the fourth of that series to be released […]

Future Plans for the Porn Star Brothers Series.

Future Plans for the Porn Star Brothers Series. ⋆ L.J. Diva

I’ve mentioned in my half yearly catch up, and will mention it again in the full yearly catch up, but will go a little more in depth here about what I’m doing with the series. When I started writing Carlos, way back in 2016, I knew there would be a trilogy. Carlos, Pedro and […]

L.J. Diva's End of 2020 Catch Up ⋆ L.J. Diva

Back on the first of Feb I posted this list of shit to get done (you can see that here), and now I’m rounding things up since it’s the last post of the year. So here we go… Here’s what I had ALREADY achieved in January (all in green) – 1 – I reorganised […]

A Brand New Year, A Brand New Site, and What I Did Over The Holidays! ⋆ L.J. Diva

Yes, here I am! Here at L.J. Diva, the official website. For those who don’t know, I had my dear old Blogger blog migrated on Jan 21st, 2019. It’s the start of a new era for me. Ten years I was at blogger, ten years I had that blog, but, 2019 is my year […]

When you come up with a really good idea, don't tell anyone until you've done it! ⋆ L.J. Diva

Because at the end of the day they’ll just steal it! I recently listened to a podcast by Valerie Khoo and Alison Tait and they read out a listener’s letter that was about just this. The woman had showed several people her book and later at a venue where she was giving a talk she was […]

My Thoughts on Taylor Swift, Copyrights and Master Files. ⋆ L.J. Diva

Let’s talk about Taylor Swift, copyrights and master files, shall we. I’ve been sitting on this post for two reasons. 1 – Because I had a writing holiday coming up, and 2 – Because I wanted to see how it would play out. Pretty much how one would suspect anything to do with […]

A Ten Year Anniversary, and Shit To Get Done for November 2020! ⋆ L.J. Diva

Let’s jump into that anniversary news… First off, it’s the ten year anniversary of when I wrote what is now called Falling for London. I wrote it in 2010, set it in 2011, and now, here we are, ten years later and it’s had two covers and two titles. It’s also gone from being […]

LJD - Ah....the Glass Ceiling. Women CAN have it all, just not at the same time.

Ah....the Glass Ceiling. Women CAN have it all, just not at the same time. ⋆ L.J. Diva

Unless you’re born a millionaire and don’t need to work and have the luxury to buy a house and pop a few kids out and have a happy life. Most of us don’t have that luxury. People bang on about the glass ceiling and how it’s holding women back. But is it? I think it’s […]

LJD -  FAME 101: Do you want to famous?

FAME 101: Do you want to be famous? ⋆ L.J. Diva

I got this book last week and immeadiately got to highlighting the necessary line/paragraphs/chapters that pinpoint my life. Do you want to be famous? I’m going to try and follow this book as much as possible, but since I don’t want to be a speaker, parts don’t apply to me. So peeps, once my books […]

Does calling your self an entrepreneur actually make you one? ⋆ L.J. Diva

The word entrepreneur means a professional who: creates, organizes, and assumes risk management, for the growth of a business. Being an entrepreneur means being self-employed and attempting to generate an income on your own without the help, assistance, or backing of another company or corporation (e.g. an employer). Furthermore, being an entrepreneur means […]

LJD - websites stealing celebrity pictures for themselves

websites stealing celebrity pictures for themselves ⋆ L.J. Diva

Many times, over the last few years, there have been many stories on bloggers being sued for using other people’s pictures. There are free photo sites like Creative Commons that you can use and only need to give a link to. We have been accused of stealing and that is part of the issue. I […]

The 10,000 hour rule, fact or fantasy? And what Karma has to do with it. ⋆ L.J. Diva

I have often wondered about life, why I’m here and what in God’s name I’m supposed to be doing. It seems that the things I want most I’m not getting, and what I want to do most I’m unable to do. Why? I can follow The Secret and say affirmations every day, write in a […]

It's so weird that my books are being sold on eBay. ⋆ L.J. Diva

It's so weird that my books are being sold on eBay. ⋆ L.J. Diva

Carrying on from the previous post, when you publish through Amazon and pick expanded distribution, your books end up being sold anywhere at anytime. What I have found very weird, is that my books are being sold on eBay. Not second hand, but brand new ones all the way from Amazon. You buy it, they […]
