Saturday 30 October
At Donna's age you'd think she'd be past train hopping to make it to a music gig in a place she'd never heard of, but no. Halloween weekend she joined some Twitter friends to support Levi Perry, her amazing and beautiful talented, singer, songwriter friend at a private gig laid on for family and selective friends. David P Perlmutter, Chris Donlan and Donna (all authors who met Levi through Twitter) were honoured to be invited. Donna is truly blessed to have Levi in her life. She is one of life's diamonds, always supporting in her life and her work. Donna is thankful for Levi letting her into her life and although they only physically met on 30th, it feels like they've known each other for many years. Levi has been featured on Donna blog with her music--Donna's favourite song is Warrior as it portrays the connection between the two women.
On Wednesday 1st September, David and I travelled into London for the premier of Rise of The Footsoldier Origins. David has a small part in the film, so this was one we couldn't miss! We caught up with friends we'd not seen in a long time and met a couple of each others friends for the first time too. Well done to Terry Stone, Nick Nevern and Andrew Loveday. What a film! Please support Origins in cinemas.
Watch this space for BIG NEWS from Dave and Donna. They will be announcing their new project soon! Its something different from Donna, you won't be expecting this!
SOUL SEARCHING: To Hell and Back Twice is Donna's follow up book to LOST SOUL. Please head over to her front page 'Donna Siggers' for a brief outline of its content.
LOST SOUL: Broken Soul to Soul on Fire has now been released as a second edition. This internationally recognised book has helped many people already, which has prompted Donna to dig deeper in order that she can potentially help many more. Initially, publishing her story wasn't and easy decision but Donna is glad to have done so. In highlighting the struggles surrounding change it has helped her come to terms with it and enabled her to progress further with life. Writing and publishing this very personal side of her life has been a journey in itself and Donna would like to thank everyone who has supported her--and give special thanks to Sheena Cundy, Lewis Hastings, Jim Fletcher, David P Perlmutter, and Mark Sippings, who all contributed to this this decision.
BROKEN WINS TOP GLOBAL AWARD!
2018 was a fantastic year for Donna and also for BROKEN! After entering a competition Donna became a top ten finalist and had to visit Columbus, Ohio USA where she delivered a series of speeches about her debut novel. Delighted that she won the "Thriller" category Donna now has global recognition in writing and publishing excellence. She also attended the Igniting Souls Conference while there - not only has this experience changed her approach to her author life but to her personal one too. Donna may have Tweeted "From Lost Soul to Soul on Fire" a few times over this period. The conference and Award host, Kary Oberbrunner was on a mission to ignite 1M souls on fire and Donna was, at the time, writing her biography LOST SOUL! Donna shares the link to Kary's site below for anyone interested his work. She placed her trust in him not ever having completed any of his paid courses and was treated like family.
CARLTON: The Final Say is Donna's current read. Donna enjoyed Carlton's book MUSCLE and has been looking forward to the release of his new book in conjunction with Jason Allday. She has followed the story of the 'Essex Boys' since their rise and fall and is looking forward to finishing the story--respect Carlton.
With an ever increasing number in our team we have a new image promoting "Team London Crime". I don't think it would ever be possible for us all to get together but many of us have met and we do as much as possible to support each other as well as others.
WARWICK COOPER THRILLERS
Donna's association with London Crime begun with Jim Fletcher asking if he could include Broken on his website. From there Donna and Jim became friends and she is now a proud member of the team!
The whole trilogy now features on the site (as does LOST SOUL--the only book that steps outside the theme of London-based content).
Donna would like to thank Jim Fletcher for all the wonderful support that he gives her both professionally and personally.
BETRAYAL was the first of Donna's books to display the LondonCrime logo on the back cover alongside her own and is delighted to have been the first author to have advertised the site on her books. She urges everyone to visit the website for London-based crime thrillers, non-fiction books and DVDs in support of her writing and film colleagues.
FREE SPIRIT had a lockdown face-lift in readiness for the second book in the series. Donna wanted the covers to have continuity across the series which now has a theme. She's now selected all the images she requires for the next three titles.
