I’ve Landed A Job As A Magazine Editor… I’m Looking For Writers For Paid Work!! #amwriting #writerslife

If you’ve been connected with me for a while, you’ll know how much I believe in The Universe, fate and how us humans are supported by some unknown force. Earlier this month I said to myself, (and Didi) for that matter, how much I’d love to get back into magazine writing. I miss it,I used to contribute a few articles to a book, beauty and fashion section a while back. I also wrote about this kinda dream you could say, in my own journal this month.

Over the last twenty four hours the opportunity found me! The founder of the magazine was looking for an editor to take over, he connected with me on Facebook. What a surprise to land not only  paid writing work outside of blogging and novel writing ,but to be asked to be the actual chief editor. Madness… I can’t believe it myself, anyway, I signed a contact and I’m about to launch this baby with a team of warriors and talented writers! See the flyer below if you are interested get in contact.

The only thing I ask is be yourself, but be damn good when writing work to submit for publication. I’ve renamed the magazine, and I plan on moving it in a new direction for a new bigger, more diverse readership.

Details: Conscious Talk Magazine will launch its first online edition in August 2017. Conscious Talk Magazine is a proud online multi-cultural and diverse global magazine, covering a range of topics. There is something for everyone. Readers will find interesting thought provoking articles, from health and well being , fashion and beauty, bookish news and reviews, sex and relationships, men’s issues, finance,  travel, music, LGBT, film and entertainment to name  just a few. We’ll  have a team of talented and diverse writers from all corners of the globe, and walks of life, here to entertain, support and empower our reader’s mind, body and soul.  Conscious Talk Magazine is neutral and does not lean to one side politically, religiously or socially.  Conscious Talk Magazine is published twice a month on the 15th and 30th of each month.

Readership Target: 25-50 years old, male and female, globally situated. Conscious intelligent readers not after Hollywood gossip!

And there you have it… my vision as editor. If it sounds like your thing as a writer to get involved with see below.

TaeVon‘s review

Jul 29, 2017
really liked it
Read from July 28 to 29, 2017 , read count: 1

I didn’t think a collection of short stories could flow so naturally between two authors, but Didi Oviatt and Kim Knight did just that.

I rated each short story on how much I would like for it to be written as a complete novel. Here’s my tally below that rounded to 4.25/5:

1. It Was The First Time I Killed A Man = 5 Stars (Think this may need more stars)
2. When He Ran His Hands Up My Thighs I… = 3.5 (I couldn’t get with the lovey dovey romance)
3. The Entrance To The Tunnel Is His Only Way Out = 4 (Ending was very unfortunate, but I had to laugh at what happened)
4. Every Time I Hear That Voice From My Basement = 4.5 (I need to know the ending’s outcome)
5. Femme Fatale = 5 (Badass Russian woman as MC; no further comment)
6. The Ones Who Live At The Bottom Of The Ocean, Come To The Surface = 5 (Just needs to continue)
6. Guilty As Charged, In Self-Defence. = 5+ (Let’s just say 7; that story was amazing)
7. It’s A Man’s Man’s World = 5 (Very emotional, easy to tear up even in that short of time)

Now It Feels Real!! The Postman Just Arrived Arrrgh!! @Didi_Oviatt #newrelease #kdsuspense #amreading

wp_20170730_002.jpgNow it all feels even more real, to see my latest works in paperback, not just on Amazon in e-book. To feel it physically in my hand makes my heart race! Didi Oviatt and I done it!! Our debut work together  in one anthology all 50,000 odd words of it. So proud to have this author’s name on a cover with mine, she’s extremely talented and  a friendship has grown.  The covers look fantastic, even if I say so myself. Really chuffed with both books.  Didi and I will be back at the end of July… which is like next week! With Kim and Didi’s Suspenseful Collection spinning tales for you. I look forward to it.

Sunday Reading… What’s Your Nose Stuck in?? I’m Reading This #amreading @jack_binding

I have a lot of romance on my to read pile. I’m taking a break from it, so I can go back fresh and excited into my genre. I’m so excited about this British author’s work.  He is inspired by none other than the main man Stephen King himself so this should be good. I’ve got my Author Review Copy and I’m  starting today! Keep an eye out on Meet The Author, I’ve interviewed  Jack Binding  and all I’m saying is… I could not keep a straight face!!  You’ll love him. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.

Pills-Kindle (1).jpg

Jack Binding’s Pills splices gritty realism with surreal imagery and otherworldly dread.

From the vicious high fashion horror of FMM (The Devils Wears Prada via Bret Easton Ellis-esque debauchery) to the stark, unsettling heartbreak of Sleeping Pills, Binding takes the reader on a journey through the secret parts of London that few people ever visit.

Influenced by writers such as Stephen King, Martin Amis and JG Ballard, there’s Cronenberg-inspired body horror, creepy kids (and their creepier parents), death, love (often unrequited), seedy massage parlours and late nights fuelled with lust and narcotics.

With overarching themes and characters, the 18 short stories in Pills can be read either as a whole enjoyed as stand-alone tales.
