I love shoes! (Yes the ones below are my shoes and feet)
More specifically, heels. High heels. They are my little indulgence. However, until I make my millions, I won’t be able to indulge quite the way I’d love to.
The red sole signature of Christian Louboutin would be my number one choice to splurge on. And as I live near Bath, Manolo Blahnik should be my second. Now, my personal favourites would be the more understated, simple shoes. The classics. That would be my sensible head talking. Like the Fifi below.
But there are others that I’ve found and have fallen in love with. Would I ever wear them? Probably not. But aren’t they beautifully decadent. View my Pinterest board to see more.
What ones are your favourite?
This is the biggest part of myself that I’ve given to my character Izzy. She goes on a journey of sexual awakening in my books – The Evermore series – And she does it with fabulous shoes on her feet. She wears very specific heels at pivotal scenes throughout the book and you can take a peak here… You’ll get to meet Izzy in More, the first in the series later this year.
So my list of firsts continues this month as I will be travelling to Peterborough for Orchard Book Club’s Author Event! My first author event.
I first signed up to this (and am dragging my bff with me) months ago and will be attending as an avid reader. Going to finally meet some of the authors I’ve read and fallen in love with is a huge thrill and I’m going to hope I don’t go too ‘fan girl’ over them.
Kitty French and Jodie Ellen Malpas are the two top authors that drew my attention to Orchard Book Clubs Author event.
I remember reading Kitty’s first book Knight and Play. It was in her early days and she is now a hugely successful best selling author. I can’t wait to read Genie which has just been released.
Jodie Ellen Malpas is another author I found when she’d just released her first in the This Man trilogy. Of course this series was amazing and she’s gone from success to success with Jesse (The Lord of the Manor!) and more recently Miller!
But since buying my ticket, I’ve been lucky enough to read and connect with other authors and I can’t wait to meet them as well!
Louise Bay was kind enough to answer questions about her wonderful series on my blog. And Cameron Lincoln… Well what can I say? Those magical words that light up my twitter feed. I’m looking forward to seeing his suit too.
I’m also looking forward to meeting with other fans and readers. After all, reading was what sparked my interest in writing!
I’m hoping to return with books and signatures and maybe some swag and a selfie or two. Plus hopefully another author or book to add to my growing list of TBR.
