I'm putting this out there with a little trepidation... because although it's not the opportune time in many respects, which I'm very conscious of, this is a BIG project that has been in the works for so long, and it seems like it's now or never. ⠀

In many respects, though, this is the PERFECT time to bring my fans more of what they've been asking me for, for so long - faster episodes, more books and audiobooks to listen to. Right now, most of us are stuck at home, with more reading time and more listening time. While we are being socially responsible by keeping home and safe, entertainment is the order of the day! (Go Arts!) ⠀
So, I'm taking the plunge!⠀

The most exciting part of this project is that I can FINALLY reveal the opening scene of the new AVON CALLING RADIO SERIAL!!! ⠀

I am so excited to share the beginnings of this audio production with you. If you want to be part of this amazing journey over the next few months, as we create the new Radio Serial, please have a look at my Patreon page, here: Patreon.com/HayleyCamille ⠀

There are lots of personalised and exciting rewards offered when you join us! Digital downloads, signed paperbacks, t-shirts, credits, the chance to contribute your name to a character - so. many. awesome. things. ⠀

So, it’s time to drop a cherry in your torpedo juice, throw away your apron and kick off your heels, because your favorite vigilante Avon Lady is flying in for a visit...⠀

Listen to the Sneak Peek (opening scene) of the new Avon Calling Radio Serial on my Patreon page for more info about the project!⠀
(It goes for 8 minutes, so turn up the volume & get rid of the interruptions - sorry, young kids, go and play, this is for grown-ups!) ⠀

Have you seen the new cover?! #AvonAnarchy has an all-new look! ⠀

*WINNER OF THE KINDLE BOOK REVIEW READER'S CHOICE AWARD*⠀

A revenge mission in the seedy underworld of 1940's New York. ⠀
One woman. One hundred killers... She likes those odds.⠀

Ready to binge-read Betty? ⠀

For fans of Kerry Greenwood's Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, classic Film Noir like Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep and action superheroes like Marvel's Avenger Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson. ⠀

Avon Calling takes on the tropes of femininity in the 40's- the dutiful wife, gals who just want to look pretty letting their man do all the heavy lifting and thinking - and flips them on their head. ⠀

It's a blisteringly paced and stylish read that's a mix of Batman and Agent Carter - with a dash of Tarantino... If you love ruthless revenge, kick-ass action and unforgettable characters, then you'll love this bestselling serialized novel. ⠀

Beware the Avon Lady with murder on her mind. When she calls on you, it won't be pretty. ⠀

It's New Year's Eve!
It's been a hard year, definitely not one of my best, with a few sad and stressful things, but I am thankful that I've still got my health, happiness and beautiful family around me. More of that will make 2020 a year to remember. The older I get, the more important making beautiful memories is, and living each day in a way that makes me feel like I'm really *living.* My husband and I have a little New Year's Eve tradition (ever since the kids came along and having a big night out was just too hard!). We spend the early part of the evening with children (sparklers and balloons) and then once they're in bed, we see the New Year in, each doing what we want to do more of in the year to come. This might be working on an individual passion project, our favourite hobby or whatever area of our life we want to create a focus on for the future. Whatever makes us most happy or inspired.

For him, it's usually playing and creating music or working on a new entrepreneurial project, and for me, it's always writing.
So, from my little office tonight, where I'll be tapping away at the keyboard with a drink and possibly large amounts of chocolate at hand, I wish you a very happy and creative New Year. I hope the passions that breathe fire into your dreams, burn every day into making your year ahead magnificent and bringing those dreams one step closer.
Read and Rebel, Happiest of New Years and Warm Hugs,
Love Hayley 🌈🦄

Book Review: The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff⠀

Switching chapters between two protagonists, this wartime novel about spies and secrets was an interesting and lovely one to listen to on audiobook.⠀

The book centers around a woman called Grace Healey who works as the secretary for an immigration lawyer, in New York in 1946. One day, she discovers an abandoned suitcase containing a dozen photographs and embarks on a personal mission to find both the owner of the suitcase and the names and fates of each of the women in the photographs.⠀

Grace soon discovers the suitcase belonged to the leader of a ring of female secret agents, and that the fates of the individual women, apparently spies, are unknown. One of those women, a young mother-turned-spy named Marie, is the second protagonist and narrator in this story, as we follow her harrowing training to become a spy and her first undercover mission in Paris. ⠀

You're the first to know...⠀ ⠀
There's an exciting project in the works for 'Avon Calling'. ⠀

We are planning to create an old-style radio serial! There will be different voices for all the characters, jazz & 1940s music, sound effects, and all the bells and whistles! ⠀

I'm currently talking to some amazing voice-over artists to feature in the series, and I think you'll be blown away by their talents. I'm hoping to have a preview of the pilot episode out to you very soon.⠀ ⠀
I want you to be part of bringing Betty to life!⠀

>>>TAKE THE SURVEY HERE: LINK IN BIO! >>> https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5TYB6VG ⠀

The cost to create this radio show will be significant, so I'm considering running a crowd-funding campaign to get each new episode made. Audio is a format I'm new to working on, so I'm seeking your feedback.⠀

I'm open to suggestions on sponsorship, incentives, rewards, Avon Calling swag and prizes - I want to know what you want!⠀

Click the link below to fill in my short survey and hit me with your thoughts, your amazing ideas and collaboration concepts. Many minds are better than one - so let's kick this project into high gear and make it happen!⠀

Time to catch up on my Book Reviews!⠀

First up... Crime Action novel "The Killing Floor" by Lee Child⠀

(Read the full review at the link in my bio!)⠀

Over the years, I’ve had numerous reviews mention that the main protagonist in my Avon Calling series, Betty Jones, reminds them of a female ‘Jack Reacher’ (from author Lee Child’s series of crime action novels featuring this character as the protagonist).⠀

Though I always took it as a great compliment (Lee Child is a wildly popular and New York Times Best-Selling author so I could only hope to have anything in common with him!), I actually hadn’t read a Lee Child novel, so had to take my reader’s words for it.⠀

So, I thought it was high time I read one of his Jack Reacher novels to see what they were getting at! (A less graphic version of the books is now also a movie series featuring Tom Cruise, but I hadn’t seen them either before reading this.)⠀

Newest review on Season One:
“A Tour de Force!”⠀⠀
⠀⠀
“What a fantastic collection of ten episodes that gives the reader an introduction to well descriptive, many-sided and unforgettable characters, great dialogues, and vast settings. The story takes place in New York City in the 1940s, in the middle of a war, where Betty Jones is an Avon representative but behind that facade is a badass woman, who possesses an unusual gift, is running from her past, and whose goal is to rid the city of its immoral elements. ⠀

Betty’s quests and ways to bring down crime boss, Frank Polletti, who is a vile character, as well as other members of the crime family, make this narrative an intriguing page-turner. Each installment slowly pulls you into a cat-and-mouse game, touching on domestic violence, manipulation, drug peddling, greed, political corruption, extortion, and everything illegal. With sudden twists and turns, secrets and lies, a shocking encounter from the past that will interlock with the present, the author knows how to keep you on the rim of your chair, with endings that will leave you wanting more.”⠀⠀

This little fluffy girl has had a few health problems lately, and she strongly grieves for her recently passed older sister. At nearly 15 years old, time is catching up with her. ⠀
But on her walks, years roll back and she becomes the energetic young puppy we were so lucky to take into our home so long ago. She smells the flowers, trails the scents of the countless other neighborhood doggos, and has a spring in her step as she follows each tiny, daily adventure out and back again. ⠀
Then it’s home to rest. By the bed, on a pillow, under my desk, on a beanbag... wherever I am, she is there too, sleeping. ⠀
Following. ⠀
Watching.⠀
Loving us all.⠀
I know one day in the coming years, I’ll look down and miss her. So I’m giving her extra love today. ❤️

New York, 1943. The war is in full swing. ⠀

Rations are tight but the gin-sours are flowing in the seedy underworld of crime and corruption led by mafia boss Donald Pinzolo. ⠀

As the body count grows, a shadow emerges, hell-bent on vigilante justice. ⠀

One by one, a lethal killer will hunt them all down. Pinzolo is about to face a ghost from his past.⠀

This time, revenge tastes like cherry pie with a side of lipstick and perfume. The Avon Lady is in town …⠀
⠀ 🔪💋⠀ ⠀
‘A Woman's Work is Never Done’ is the first episode in the thrilling Crime Noir serialized novel readers describe as "An EXPLOSIVE laugh-out-loud story!" with the indomitable protagonist, Betty Jones, as "a female Jack Reacher", "powered as all hell" and "Sassy, Smart and Deadly!"⠀

If you love ruthless revenge, kick-ass action and quirky characters, then you’ll love Hayley Camille's bestselling serialized novel. You can find continuing new episode releases for this series on Amazon.⠀

200+ five-star reviews. Find out why so many readers have fallen for ScreenCraft semi-finalist and award-nominated author Hayley Camille's thrilling series!⠀

Are you part of a writer's group?⠀

Whether you're a creative writer working on a novel, or you are piecing together a non-fiction book in your area of expertise, or perhaps you're creating high-quality content for your business website; remember that collaboration is an important part of the process. ⠀

I'm not just talking editing assistance (which is imperative), but rather, people to bounce ideas off, to inspire you and to help you see new angles to your work, new possibilities and new opportunities. Choose people who are like-minded, and whose own writing work you admire.⠀

Receiving constructive criticism can be hard at first (eventually you'll come to relish it!) but try not to take their advice personally or argue to justify your reasoning. Simply listen, accept the feedback and then objectively take it or leave it - but always learn from it. How you perceive something as the writer, may be quite different to how it is perceived by a reader without the benefit of your research or backstory in mind.⠀

Whether you choose to implement the suggested changes is up to you. Often you won't, and that's fine. You may not want to, or it may not be the change you need, but rather you may need to expand your description or retell it in another way. ⠀

But the perspective of another writer can be illuminating in identifying those little things that don't quite work in your story, especially continuity errors or contradictions of the theme. Constructive critiques will help you to understand your own work better, and in doing so, strengthen it a hundred-fold.⠀

This process can be invaluable to your ongoing development as a writer. ⠀

Gather your writing tribe, and give it a go.⠀

Oh, how I love this quote! It inspires us as writers, as authors, as business-people, as entrepreneurs and change-makers, to use our words wisely. To use them to make a difference, to shake things up, to challenge the status quo and get people thinking. ⠀

Make a mark with your words - they're a far more powerful tool than you realize.⠀

Season Two of 'Avon Calling' kicks off with our favourite vigilante Avon Lady being drawn into the hunt for a serial killer. ⠀

It's late Autumn, 1943, and the war has taken a turn for the worse. Rationing is at its most stringent, and despite the strained optimism of local politicians and newspapers, a grim weight has settled on the streets of New York and seems too heavy a burden to shift. ⠀

A sinister shadow is dogging Betty's steps and it seems she's not the only person in danger.
Luckily, she possesses a few *special* skills...⠀ *> hayleycamille.com/avon-episode1-free/⠀

My littlest bookworm is a.... Gryffindor!!⠀

Does anyone else just LOVE dressing their kids up in bookish costumes? Honestly, School Book Week is one of the few times each year that I get to whip out the old sewing machine and come up with something a bit special for them to wear on dress up day. I mean, there’s just so much *scope for the imagination* (to quote Anne Shirley) that the kids actually want to put a bit of thought into it each year before we get to work. Then Spotlight and Lincraft stores are our playground. ⠀
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to revisit some of my favorite costume memories from bookweek, and ask for your inspiration on what to make for this year. Make sure you throw me your suggestions!! ⠀
To kick things off, here is my little Ivy in her Hogwarts uniform. I didn’t make this one (thanks, BigW!!) but I love it just as much. ⠀

I think it was in a writing workshop that I first heard this phrase, (if anyone knows it's origins, feel free to post it), and it has always resonated with me. ⠀
"Write into the dark places" doesn't infer an author should only write about horror or evil things, but rather, it challenges an author to write out of their comfort zone, whatever that may be - to explore the parts of themselves that they don't necessarily *want* the rest of the world to know. We all have secrets, thoughts and desires that feel a little *dark*. These are ideas that don't sit comfortably within the collective mind of society. Memories and feelings that may be better left unsaid. ⠀
But within fiction, an author is challenged to dig in and find these feelings and thoughts, then build a story around them that leaves the reader just a little uncomfortable. Our reader's subconscious bias' are challenged, their expectations are toppled, their comfort zone is stretched. The story lingers within their mind for days afterward, because somewhere, deep inside, it touches something that is a little bit dark, and a little bit shared by all of us...⠀
As an author I love this phrase. It's easy to write words that don't affect readers, but it's very hard to write words that do. ⠀
My challenge for other authors today - Write into the Dark Places. See what you dig up, and then twist it until you create something beautiful.⠀
