Christmas Parody, Let It Flow now released!

My parody of Disney’s Let It Go is now live on YouTube – hope you enjoy it, I had fun making it! xx

(please note this does contain some swearing)

What I’m up to now.

 

Hi all,

The festive season has come early for me and the hugely talented members of my choir group.I have written a few humorous parodies of Christmas songs to put on YouTube, telling the truth about the festive season. Highlights include: ungrateful guests,spending half of next year’s pay by the end of December, and borderline alcoholism. (Yeah, like you’ve never hid out in the loo with a gin!)
The songs include homages to Frozen (aptly named ‘Let it Flow’), ‘God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen’ and ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.’
Watch this space for details and links.

In other news, I’ve started a shiny new novel named The eX and whY.
No, I haven’t started on the wine early today, the capitals are in strange places to represent the male and female chromosomes. The story follows a break-up, told from both their points of view. Hoping for a release next summer.

Crappily Ever After and Ivy Eff have both had face lifts, I’m doing my own illustrations these days, with the fantastic help of my other half, David, who takes my mediocre sketches and turns them into amazing front covers.

Last but by no means least, I’m delighted to welcome my newest addition to my book shelf, Falling from Grace. Released last Christmas, it’s had quite a few of the readers scratching their heads, due to the huge twist in the middle. Why not give it a go, I think you’ll love it.

Lots of love,

LouB xx

The writing achievement of which I am most proud is the recognition for my first book, ‘Crappily Ever After.’ As an indie author it’s very difficult to get your name out there. With a huge marketing effort and a lot of support from my partner, family and friends, I have managed to sell just under 40,000 copies, have received 180 reviews with an average of 4.3 out of five stars and the e-book has spent a year and a half in the top twenty of humour/fiction for KIndle.

My favourite quote about writing;
What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic- Carl Sagan.

I’m looking forward to the IAF to meet and share ideas with other indie authors and connect with new readers.

Welcome

Louise Burness was born in 1971 and raised in the Scottish town of Arbroath. She spent several years living in Edinburgh and Fife, travelling around Australia and South East Asia and eight years living in West London. Louise has currently moved back home to launch her first self-published book.

After many an entertaining conversation concerning Louise’s latest love life disaster, her friends encouraged her to write her experiences down. What began as a humourous, cathartic exercise gained the approval of family and friends and ‘Crappily Ever After’ was born. The novel is therefore loosely based on truth and gives you some insight into the more dramatic relationships of Louise’s life so far. Now about to embark on book number two, Louise hopes to make a career from writing novels.
