Latest Loves: Book edition

I have to confess, I've been a bit of a bookaholic this year... I'm currently enjoying my 70th read of 2014! Here are some my favourites of the year, so far:

Happy birthday Kept!

One year ago today I hit publish and Kept was released to the world. Of course, the intention was that it would go live on the 23rd and I would get to share my publication date with the birth and death date of Shakespeare, St George's Day and World Book Day, but sometimes things don't work out exactly how you plan them. (And that's OK!)

It was last month that Kept really came into its own, when it reached #1 in the Best Sellers chart. I'm utterly thrilled about that, and the reviews are still coming in strong from the 50,000+ downloads that Kept had last month. A big thank you to anyone who has read Kept, left a review or spread the word about the book - as an indie author, I appreciate it so much. 

It's definitely been quite the year for Kept, which was joined by Geli Voyante's Hot or Not last October. I'm currently hard at work on Kept's sequel - Lost - and I hope that this will be out this summer, though that depends on a few things I have up my sleeve... 

Happy birthday Kept, and here's to my second year as an author! x

The view from St Paul's

A trip to the City of London should involve a trip to St Paul's Cathedral - it's ridiculously old and ridiculously splendid. The current form of it is one of Sir Christopher Wren's, though there has been a church on the site since at least 604. Like I said, it's ridiculously old.

You'll actually find Sir Christopher Wren's remains in the crypt of St Paul's. He was the first person to be interred in the crypt, and he's in excellent company - Admiral Lord Nelson (yes, *that* Admiral Lord Nelson who has *that* famous column in Trafalgar Square) and the Duke of Wellington are also resting in the crypt.

St Paul's is very much a working cathedral, which means it's only open Monday to Saturday. You can, of course, go there on a Sunday to attend a service, but no sightseeing allowed!

The inside of St Paul's is magnificent, but since you're not allowed to take photographs, you'll just have to go and see it for yourself. I can share the view from outside of St Paul's though, which will save your legs climbing the 528 steps to get up to the Golden Gallery. I promise though that the view is worth the effort, plus you can always rest in the Whispering Gallery and Stone Gallery on the way up.

What do you think? London looks stunning, right? x
