For a while now, I have been working on my novel, and I'm proud to say that after rejection letters from every agent and publishing house I tried, I have self-published The Common Outcast. It'd mean the world to me if you could go and read it, because I've worked so hard for this, and I'm so proud that this day has finally arrived. I've been working on The Common Outcast for so long now, that it's weird thinking about the fact that it isn't just me that can read it anymore.
I'll tell you a little bit about my novel, it's a young adult fiction novel, with themes that are actually applicable to today's society. It's about a girl called Charlotte Scott. Charlotte is a fifteen year old who doesn't have the easiest life, she's a pedigree outcast. Charlotte made a lot of mistakes and she wants to make others aware of the consequences of their actions. The novel is quite sarcastic, Charlotte is certainly a sarcastic character, and she tends to have an opinion about everything. It's very dramatic, and there's even a fit, fake doctor.
Anyway, I thought I'd let you know that you can buy my book, and if you do, let me know what you think because literally worked so hard on it....
So it's available as a paperback which is adorable, and you can buy it from;
Amazon UK;
Amazon US;
You could also buy the Kindle version;
Amazon UK;
Amazon US;
And just because I have only listed the US and UK Amazon, you should be able to find it in other countries as well, I believe, if you just type in "The Common Outcast"  and it should be by Grace E Kinbrough if you find it on there.
I have worked so hard on getting this novel ready to share with the world, and I wasn't prepared in the slightest. it was just like boom, my novel is out. It's quite a special moment for me because it's my novel. I've worked my butt off to get here, and now the day has finally arrived.
So here is to, The Common Outcast.
Here's a little preview of my novel, this is taken from Chapter Five, so please, if you like it, go and buy my novel!
“What’s your name?” He asked me, obviously checking to see if I had the concussion or something that would mess my brain up.
“Charlotte Summer Scott,” I responded.
“How many fingers am I holding up?” He held up his whole hand…he liked to make this so difficult obviously…
“Four fingers and one thumb, however, some people like to class the thumb as a finger. So either four fingers and one thumb or, five fingers. I guess it depends on your mood and how you feel about things. I mean do you class the thumb as a thumb or a finger? I mean if we can call a spade a spade then surely we can call a thumb a thumb and not a finger. I really don’t know why…” I was cut off by his lips on mine. I didn’t intend for my little speech to end this way, but it was a good way for it to end. I mean it could have been a lot worse.

I realised that I was best to cooperate with his lips, so in return, I kissed him back. Man, I loved him. See that’s the thing, he’s just so delicate, like a petal that I knew that if I didn’t agree with him then he would just leave and I’d lose him again. We’d previously fell out quite a few times, partially because to quote him I ‘don’t know how to keep my legs shut’ which in literal and metaphoric reasoning I did. I knew how to keep my legs shut. Although, legs don’t have doors on them so technically I feel like that phrase shouldn’t exist. I can understand when people say closed instead of shut, but shut would imply that they had a door on them in which they didn’t. Just imagine if instead of the legs that we know the human anatomy to have that instead, they had doors. Then that term would be valid.

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Rock & Roll Is My Religion by Dirty Rose

  Welcome back to the blog, and today I'm featuring a new band to the blog! This band is Dirty Rose. Now, they reached out to me at the end of last year and asked me if I'd be interested in doing some content on their new album when it dropped, and I mean, this is me. When do I ever turn bands down? Anyway, so after me trying to get my brain to write this earlier than I have, we're finally here!  The album is titled Rock & Roll is My Religion, and it dropped on the 21st of January, and Dirty Rose are on a mission to properly bring back rock and roll! So if you too, are a believer that we need to resurrect rock and roll, and bring it back then Dirty Rose could be the band for you!  I really didn't know what to expect when I first heard Dirty Rose. I thought when they were saying rock and roll, it was going to be a lot less rock orientated than it is. However. I was pleasantly surprised when I heard Dirty Rose, and hearing their cover of The Rock Show by blink-182 was

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po
