A wonderfully satisfying thump of post falling through the letterbox today... especially as the thump was from my first copy of Hens Reunited. Oooooh! It is so lovely and exciting seeing your own book for the first time and this is my favourite one yet. Hurrah! If I was a bit cleverer I'd display a photo of me holding it in my own fair hands (kissing it even) but sadly such a complex technical feat is beyond my (pathetic) capabilities, so you'll just have to use your imagination.
Only a few weeks now until publication, I can't wait to see it in the shops. And I must think up a few competitions for you lovely blog-readers to celebrate. Stay tuned for some excellent prizes. You could be a lucky winner!
It's very timely, this copy of Hens arriving today as I've literally JUST finished my edit of book 4. I'm going to read it through one last time on Monday and then send it off to my agent and editor for their thoughts. Gulp...
