NOMINATED– Guess What? … I’m Nominated!!

SQUEEEE … This week I celebrate exciting NEW opportunities in my writing life. After completing  Kids Sci-Fi JOSH VS. LORD TERRA, the timing was perfect to reflect and review my writers platform, and plan for the future.

Firstly, welcome to my NEW LOOK website with the latest badges, buttons and gizmos.

Gaze over to the right > > > > to my spanking NEW Facebook page badge, Karen Tyrrell Author. Those  ‘IN THE KNOW’ suggested I set this up now. Please click anywhere on the badge, go to my page and LIKE me. Then we’re instantly connected … I’d appreciate your support  xx

You can also connect with me at Twitter and Linked in. Click the icons on the right.

A HUGE techno thanks to Anthony Puttee from Book Cover Cafe for updating my website.


WOOHOO … I’m a Best Australian BLOG NOMINEE.

Three weeks ago, a dedicated follower nominated me for the Best Australian BLOG competition in the Best Writing category. Then I submitted blurbs on why I blog and what inspired me to start blogging.

Check out the blue badge over on the top right.
This week, judges from Sydney Writers Centre will appraise Karen’s BLOG on its writing merits, personal tone and readership.

I’m entered into the PEOPLE CHOICE AWARDS category too.
Later this week a VOTE FOR ME badge will be installed here. This Saturday the 16th April,  I hope you’ll VOTE FOR ME by clicking on my VOTE FOR ME badge. Please put this VIP event in your diaries. Many thanks :))

My most exciting news … In 3-4 weeks time I start a challenging part-time job, exercising my writing, mental health and teaching passions and skills. I’m so proud to be part of this ground breaking project. I’ll divulge more when I’m ‘allowed’ to make the announcement … Please stay tuned :))

This week #4 incredible opportunities were presented to me and I embraced them with passion.

Will you be pro-active, in raising your writer’s platform?
Will you recognize opportunities and grab them?
