It’s been a long time since I had to introduce myself, my other blog is five years old. Practically ancient in blog years when you think about how many blogs are littered in the online cemetery.
But here I am, five years on, adding to my stress levels by starting a new blog. Why? Because 2017 is the year I publish my first book. And while the first one is non-fiction and will technically be launched on my other site, the rest of my books are fiction, and it just didn’t seem right to mix the two.
So who am I?
I’m Sacha Black. Cut me, and I bleed words. Do a post-mortem on me, and you’d find a cocktail of the following:
- 25% Sarcasm
- 25% Bad words
- 25% Other words
- 25% Coffee
- 25% Gym related endorphins
- 25% Philosophy and curiosity (and yes I know this doesn’t add up to 100! :p)
I’m a writer, reader of books, breaker of rules, maker of food, looker afterer of small humans (singular, one terror tot aged 3) and a wife. I live, breathe and sleep writing. It is more than my everything, and I won’t rest until I can write full time.
I stopped aging at 16, although I’m several years past that…*cough* I’m the sort of girl your parents raised an eyebrow at if u took me home and befriended me.
I don’t lie, ever. I’m brutally blunt; I have a strong aversion to people, seeking refuge in late nights and my MacBook. I’m often mistaken as an extrovert because I think aloud. But you can be assured I’m socially awkward.
I founded the Bloggers Bash along with my awesome committee: Ali, Geoff, and Hugh. If you don’t know what that is, you should. It’s an annual get-together for bloggers of all kinds, from any platform, in London, every summer. You should come.
I write YA fantasy and dystopian fiction with a hint of love thrown in for good measure, as well as non-fiction writing craft books, the first of which is called 13 Steps to Evil – How to Craft Superbad Villains.
Stick around and on this blog, you’ll find: my book launches, as well as updates on my book publishing progress, book reviews, photography, stuff about me and who I am, fiction related chattering, and the odd post based on where I find my inspiration, which could be anything from beautiful imagery and photography to bizarre conspiracies.
