I'm so excited....

I'm so excited...

I just can't hide it.

I'm about to lose control

And I think I like it...


Feel free to sing along....

The reason for my merriment is not alas the football (I am up here tapping away because I cannot bear to watch to the bitter end).

Nay verily.

It is because....

TA DA!!!!

I have copies of this...





Well, two copies to be precise. The rest of my author copies follow on later.

It looks even better in real life then the cover would have me believe. And I am slightly recovering from the shock of seeing my name on an actual book, wot I appear to have written.


So

I'm still excited...

I just can't hide it...

Dode do dedo

And I think I like it...

Picture me doing a virtual back flip. and you might get the picture.

Meanwhile book two is tantalisingly close to the end and I am daring the children to be sick this week... I will be blogging about that one shortly.

Suffice to say it has been a mad few weeks spent flinging words on the page, and when I'm done I'll have to reread and see if they make any kind of sense. I do know that all the lawyers of my acquaintance are going to be sent a huge fat list of questions as I think my courtroom scenes probably owe more to This Life then anything else...

I hope after that, normal service on this blog will resume.

Watch this space.



PS. I'm still excited....

Ha ha. This is great. It's nice to see a nice normal person who doesn't feel the need to be 'cool' about what should be a really exciting event.

Very pleased for you, and (ever so) slightly envious!

Thank you Leigh, for very nice comments and also meant to say nice to see you on my blog! Although I have worked in publishing for the best part of twenty years I've never got over the excitement of seeing a book I've edited in the flesh, so it is doubly so for one I've written. Though I am still having to pinch myself. Good luck with your writing too.


MT Am sure one day I'll be jumping up and down for you too.

PU Thanks for that. Not sure if this one is quite your cup of tea, though I do have a scene where I quote the poem used on Rembembrance Day and someone plays the Last Post...

Enjoy the moment - you obviously are! It must be a great thrill - and more to come when the book is in the shops...

What a great looking cover, I'll definitely be getting a copy.
Congratulations :-)

DD thanks so much... did you ever track down your mysterious artist by the way?

Sally welcome to the blog and thank you very much for saying you'll buy the book.

Am now terrified people are going to hate it!
