Everyone waiting for the final amount raised

- Hawaiian Affair (PG) finally available in paperback on amazon for gifting!

- Xmas shoot insider info, as the promo goes live on air…

- ‘I Can Do It Weekend’ – meeting some inspirational speakers

- Breast Cancer Care event – what an amazing night

BREAST CANCER CARE NIGHT

Ok who can you spot?! What a night! On Wednesday this week, Charlie and I co-hosted the 14th annual Breast Cancer Care fundraising gala evening and what a night it was! Craigy up in the phone room was his usual effervescent self (see his blog for more info – and Charlie’s).

Plus, celebs Jonathon and Charlotte performed live, Vincent and Flavia danced, Andrea McLean and Linda Barker were live in the studio, and, of course, one of the most wonderful parts of the night was the involvement of our delightful Breast Cancer Care models: Berenice, Penny and Stuart.

Breast Cancer models with performersHere they are with the celebs and with our Emma, who helped to make the whole night possible along with Tina and Rox and co, well done to everybody. 

It was an honour to take part. If you missed it, just text ‘CARE’ to 70300 to donate £10. Or see my ‘sneaky peek’ at the bottom. And thanks to all of you for your lovely comments afterwards, particularly about the little video tribute to Charlie’s good friend and our lovely model Amica whom we all miss enormously.

Very moving, very rewarding, utterly exhausting but exhilarating too. One of my best nights this year so far – and a TiFFT (try it for the first time club) cos since I co-presented the very first BCC night, with Paul Lavers, I hadn’t done it again, and definitely never on this grand scale.

Also as promised, I said I’d link to them – you can still watch our videos, and find out more info here.
At the time of writing we raised over £330,000! Thank you everybody.

And as a special treat, click here for the video of Flavia and Vincent dancing whilst Jonathan and Charlotte sing a song from their CD, the grand finale to a fabulous show. 

 

 

XMAS SHOOT BEHIND THE SCENES

There was another fab, untypical, QVC work day recently when we went off on the xmas shoot. Do you remember several blogs ago, back in September – when we all went off to film the footage they’ll be using for the brilliant xmas promos?

Well, the results of those are now on air! In case you’ve missed them, there will be lots of versions leading up to yuletide, but you can see from this first one how much fun we all had on the shoot at a sprawling country mansion somewhere near Reading! 

[Having trouble viewing this video? See YouTube's Help page]

On the day myself, Charlie, Jilly, Claire, Chloe, Will, Tanya, Sally, Deborah-Anne, and Charlie’s dogs were all present, and we had fun posing whilst Claire pretended to play ‘charades’ – well, I say ‘pretended to’ – she really did!

They had to tell us to stop at one point! And you know the little shimmy she does in the above promo? Guess which ‘book’ she was miming a Honolulu dance to, for that particular take? Answer at the bottom of the page!*

Here are a couple of ‘behind the scenes pics,’ showing how the majestic building was covered in snow for our shoot! Very effective tho! Watch out for Charlie’s little dogs in future videos!

I CAN DO IT WEEKEND

Neale D WalschIf you know me by now, you’ll know I love my inspirational speakers. Well, considering how this year has gone, with the loss of some of our nearest and dearest, it’s perfect timing with motivational people and some of my favourite authors. Craig and I have attended the two day HayHouse event, ‘I Can Do It’, for the second year running!

Specifically it’s timely because some of them wrote books I can truly say ‘changed my life’ – or rather, changed how I dealt with things in my life. Neale Donald Walsch, author of a trilogy of books which I read around 2001 helped me adapt and cope with, for instance, the loss of my dad ten years previously.

In fact, so keen to see NDW was I, that – to put things in perspective – I set my alarm for 7am on Sunday – an amazing achievement for me, as regulars will know! 

 One of his sayings is –

"Life is not all about you. It’s about the people you touch, and the way in which you touch them."

Well worth trying some of his books, if you’re having a hard period in your life at the moment. (Tip – read the first 20 pages of book 2 of the ‘Conversations with God’ trilogy, THEN go back and start from book 1).

Debbie with Bruce LiptonI also managed to see Dr Bruce Lipton, who wrote one of my former Books of the Week, Biology of Belief. His talk was packed full of one of my hot topics, quantum physics and how it relates to healing and making things happen in your life. Specifically his new book ‘The Honeymoon Effect’ – how to make your marriage stay on track – I’m making notes just in case… ! Superb!

 

 

Bruce Lipton on stage

Loved his powerpoint explaining brain wave activity as we grow up – I’m geeky like that – but it made Craigy fall asleep! Hehe!

Loads of other speakers, workshops and signings – and I loved it all. I might take Lauren next year! If you want more info about it all from Hay House, go here.

 

 

 

 

BLOOPER – more a highlight than a blooper – Jilly’s fab dancing on the Vincent and Flavia hour with Craigy! Go girl!

 

P.S. Bonus clip – the first Andi Peters and Dale Franklin kitchen show – practically the whole hour is a blooper! Hehe! Another six week’s to come, Mondays 7pm! 

 

 

Still to come – Prize-winning book… Breast Cancer Care prize-winner… & Pirate the Tripawd Kitten Bracelets…

 

READ IT WRITE IT SELL IT – Riwisi – My Weekly Look at All Things Book

 For readers and aspiring writers of thoroughly good books!

It’s Finally Available – Hawaiian Affair (PG) in paperback!

  HA PG paperbackYes if you didn’t already know, this summer I published my first book, and since then over 5,000 have sold in both eBook and paperback form. But now my ‘steamy’ romance novel Hawaiian Affair has a less raunchy little sister – now available to order online, which is a bit less ‘detailed’ as Leighton Denny said!

So at last, for those who asked, here’s the one you can gift to someone who prefers a ‘close the bedroom door’ version – although to be honest, even in the PG, that door is still pretty much ajar!

Go here to see it and order Hawaiian Affair in PG paperback – only takes a few days. Do let me know what you think. And if you can’t order it online yourself, email me at debbie@debbieflint.com for help.

Fab Reviews – And as the Amazon reviews hit 4.8 out of 5 for the main book, (so chuffed!) with over 153 five star reviews in the different options, here’s the latest, which made me smile, and glow all over! Thank you lovely reviewer!

“I was totally taken by surprise that this was such a good book. I don’t mean that in a bad way but merely that it would have been so interesting. The facts and knowledge that Debbie has put into it make for a better read. The love story that unfolded as well was gripping and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to the next.”

                                                                                                                Christine Bagenal, Amazon

Steamy – And for those who want the full-strength version, go here! (don’t forget to leave me a review!) Stop press – Amazon have reduced the steamy paperback cost to £6.23 – lowest I’ve seen it! 

 

**Countdown to the prequel to Hawaiian Affair –

– NEW NOVEL – Hawaiian Prize – paperback/eBook – 6 WEEKS (Nov 28th 2013)

 

Book of the Week – Man Booker Prize Winner – ‘The Luminaries’
The LuminariesAmazing how instant reading a book can be when you’ve got a Kindle! At our Tuscany Writing group reunion (see below) my good pal Litty said she’d just begun reading ‘The Luminaries’ by the prestigious Man Booker Prize Winning author Eleanor Catton on audio book and was liking it.

Reading the reviews tho, its complicated plot and twelve interwoven characters’ journeys lead me to think I’d be better off getting the book in case I get lost with the audio book!

However, competitions like the Man Booker – an annual literary (meaning ‘highbrow’) novel competition – are often a good way to broaden your reading horizons, don’t you think? As an antidote to the likes of 'Bridget Jones’ Diary'?!

Man bookerAnd if you don’t know if you’d like literary novels, don’t forget, if you get an Amazon eBook, and hate it, you can get a refund within seven days! So check out some of these titles on the shortlist, and perhaps it’ll lead you to a new favourite author! Let me know if you’ve had that experience by leaving me a comment below.

Tuscany writing group- The Ladies of Posara Reunite – had a lovely lunch up London with the Ladies, my writing group from Tuscany – celebrating four years since we went away! Fab brainstorm about marketing self-published books and putting the world to rights at Jamie’s Italian in Upper St Martin’s Lane – such fun!

From L to R – Carolyn Mahony, Maggie Fox, Isabelle Goddard, Litty and me! (Mary Jane Hallowell and Emily Harvale couldn’t make it.) All but two are now published authors! What a persistent bunch we are!

 

 

Debbie, Sharon and Dawn- My Oldest Pals and Me So from more recently acquired friends, to the get together of my two oldest pals from school – Sharon and Dawn – whom I met up with on Thursday night for a long overdue catch up!

We were all at Morden Farm Middle School and Willows High School together (class of ’75 and ’80 respectively!). Shame I had a garage fire in 2000 and lost many old pics, as there was one of the three of us on a school trip to Draveil near Paris around 1974 in exactly the same line up!

Nice to keep in touch with old pals tho! (and P.S. Happy birthday to Dawnie for the 22nd!) Also, hi to Ramina and family and Sue and Laura in the chippie opposite St Helier station whom I met when I popped in for a cod roe too! :-)

- By the way it’s National Osteoporosis Day on the 20th – click here for more info. Apparently bones stop growing in length between ages 16-18 but continue to increase in density till around 35 when they start to decrease again.

It’s a normal part of ageing but for some it can lead to problems. Knowing what I know about food now, I’d say do your research – there’s so much out there – about what foods affect your bone health. Like this one, particularly pertinent about myths surrounding how we can get calcium. If you know of any other articles let me know!

Moon- Lunar Eclipse on Friday Just in case you think the moon’s turning red on Friday evening, it just might be! A minor lunar eclipse is due, at around 22.50 at night on Friday – for early blog readers you haven’t missed it – especially if you live in London, the Midlands and Yorkshire.  Click here to read more!

FOOTNOTES
LISTEN – Haven’t been watching telly much this week, apart from the obvious! And catching up with Downton. But I have been doing a lot of driving, so here’s a ‘LISTEN’ instead of a ‘WATCH’, with a top tip for a fab audiobook for you!

Bridget Jones’ Diary Mad About the Boy – audiobook – AN EXCELLENT 8 OUT OF TEN.
Bridget JonesYes, it’s the long-awaited sequel – didn’t we all love Bridget Jones first time round? Did you see the films? They meant a lot to me! See, in 2001, I WAS her – almost – except I’d already had the kids.

But here she is, about 13 years later and she’s 51. Er, so am I.

And has had a son then a daughter. Er, so did I.

And she’s looking for a man. Er… so am… ok, enough of that.

So HOW, may you ask, does she end up in this position again? Well I really don’t want to give away too much of the plot – if you’ve missed all the newspaper write-ups you won’t thank me for including a spoiler (we all know how much I hate those! See previous RiWiSi if you agree!).

So suffice to say, she is dating again. And it’s still the same old Bridget, but one encumbered with a whole new set of circumstances, in which to weave the Helen Fielding Bridget-magic. There are mixed reviews, so it was always going to be a tough act to follow.

Personally, I loved the second half of the fabulously narrated audio-book, once I’d adjusted to this ‘new’ older Bridget. I thoroughly enjoyed the crescendo to the finale – so blatantly written for film, including, as you probably know, that Renee Zellwegger refused to get herself all fat again to play the role.

BUT I can’t WAIT to see it! And as for the audio book? Seems I’m starting to mark audio books much higher than films eh! Well maybe – just maybe – the ‘pictures’ are better… :-)

 

 

QVC – SNEAKY PEEK
Gatineau set - 202523It’s an unusual one this week – a retrospective bargain – still available on the web, whilst stocks last – one of the few packs not to make it to air, and therefore not to sell out during BCC night – where over 80% of the sale price (all the net proceeds) of an item go to Breast Cancer Care.

This five piece anti-ageing set from Gatineau 202523, includes a 15ml of none other than the famous (premium!) Age Benefit cream (the 50ml is usually £85!) plus hand, throat, gommage and mask – fab bargain at under £20! Snap it up quick! :-)

Or search ‘Breast Cancer Care’ in the search bar, and you’ll maybe find what else is still left after the sell out show on Wednesday!

Anttony tunic - 109900Antthony’s Coming Back! – plus, I’ve got to mention it – pleeeez put in your diary Sunday night 27th at midnight, when my lovely pal Antthony our fashion designer will be back with me, with a new Today’s Special Value sequin hanky hem tunic!

Many congratulations on the your breast cancer care night I recorded it as I was dancing but watched it the following morning while having breakfast I must admit I had a tear in my eye. Love, love , love the update on pirate the kitten being a massive cat and dog lover it’s so nice to hear he is doing so well !!
    I’m off on my holidays in two weeks time and four of your books will be on their way to America to some lovely ladies that can’t wait to get their little hands on it and there will be no holding back they are very keen to have the grown up version ha…ha… We are hoping to visit LA this time, any tips as I know you have visited a few times.

    Debs, get a ‘page not found’ on that calcium link however the following one explains why vitamin K (leafy veg #surprise,surprise) has an important role to play in bone health :-

    Researchers have recently shown that the brain uses sleep to wash away the waste toxins built up during a hard day’s thinking – must mean I’m brainwashed every night !lol!
    Not only is the Graham Norton Show back on Fridays but the Clangers are returning in 2015, yay #willgrowuponeday!
    If your books went audio would you be able to choose who narrates them if you don’t do it yourself or is that out of your control ?
    Debbie Does Dinner sounds interesting, is that a variation of Come Dine with Me or a macrobiotic lecture ??he-he
    Have a good week, Nige :))

    Dear Debbie
    I would just like to say a big thank you to you for the BCC goody bag raffle – I am that lucky winner and could not believe it when I received the e-mail to let me know.
    I am so looking forward to receiving it.
    Once again, another very interesting blog – I cannot wait for your second novel to be available – I have dropped several hints about it being a loveley christmas pressie (if they take the bait)
    Once again many thanks for your generosity.

    In LA there’s a fair bit to do – it depends what you’re looking at fitting in. I’ve not really done the touristy things, I’ve more just ‘bee’d’ as my son used to say when he was small!

    Debbie Does Dinner would have to be lots of veggies – am subsisting on green soups atm – yummm!
    And audio book – there’s a part of Amazon where you can upload your own ones – or pay to have it produced. Not sure yet. Might get it done in time for xmas but it depends on costings – a professional production costs upwards of $100 per 15 mins – will have to try reading mine out loud to see how long it is! lol

    Hi Debs
    Great blog as ever. You never fail to make me laugh and smile when I read it.
    What a great night the BCC event was. Entertaining and a chance for getting great bargains and donating to charity. It was also humbling watching and hearing the survivors stories. Ali Keenan and all are an inspiration. What a lovely tribute to the gorgeous Amica, Its a cruel fact a life that cancer touches each of us in one way or another so I think we should all help to do something to help the fight against it.
    Congratulations on the publication of your great first (of many) novel. Loved reading it and cant wait for the prequel
    Love n hugs

    Great blog as always Debbie. Wonderful news that Antthony is back, He is such a sweet, thoughtful chap. I felt so bad for him the last time he was over, right after the loss of his dear friend. I hope you gave him lots of hugs. He mentioned that he has to spend Thanksgiving over here on QVCUK, away from his family for the first time. That is going to be so hard for him. Maybe you can cook him a Thanksgiving meal to cheer him up? Sure you and Craig could make him smile – your happy personalities are both infectious :-)

    Hello Debbie
    I really enjoy reading your blog, it is so comprehensive, have you ever thought of writing a book!
    Well done on your presentation of the BCC show, you looked so glam and it was a great evening of entertainment from all at QVC. All the effort paid off as such a lot of money was raised. I bought The pendant that Alison designed, what an inspiring lady. She is on a tough journey and yet she is helping others cope with their own difficult circumstances. I often feel that QVC is much more than just a shopping channel. Everyone seems so friendly and I caring and I am sure that is why so many customers watch and trust the company enough to buy.
    Thank you for all the ‘sneaky peaks’ much appreciated.
    Lots life love
