Finally

Yesterday, I received an advanced copy of my book from the publisher.

Yes! finally! I have dreamed of this day.
The book came out exactly how I wanted. Including the size and the format,this is how I pictured my book in my head from the very beginning. I cannot tell you how excited I am.

I am dedicating this book to my mum.

When I signed the book contract and found out the publishing date was quite far away then, I secretly wondered if my mum will ever get to see it. My mum has the condition called Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) which are bone marrow disorders.

But she is on a new medicine and doing well. And my book is here! Her birthday is early next month. It will be a perfect gift for her.

The book is still printing and, it will be a few more weeks until the rest arrives. My publisher, Search Press is running a competition through the Facebook. The winning prize is a signed copy of course, but it may arrive with my mini knitted animal. We are still in the process of planning, so let’s see. Please like their page and watch the space.
I would like to run a competition on my website,too, but first, I have to find out how I do it. I am not an expert in website and computing butI will try.

Thank you for your wait. It will not be too long until you get to have my Mini knitted safari.

    Thank you so much, Julie! You have made me teary. I am so glad I decided to come out of my comfort zone and made this challenge. It takes a lot of courage, but I think you need to try a little something different to have an achievement in life. I am creating so much more and, I hope to share this joy with you.
