I have just had some super exciting news from my publisher, Book Guild. DORY’S AVENGERS, my début novel, has gone to press to be printed and bound. Within a month I will hold the first copy of my book in my hands, and I’m already feeling pretty overwhelmed at the mere thought. The day I actually receive my author’s copies will be a very emotional, jubilant and significant day in my life.
When I was five-years-old, like a lot of children that age, I learned to read and write. I immediately embraced this knowledge as an amazing gift, and from that day I’ve had an insatiable appetite for the written word. Whether it be reading another writer’s work, or writing my own stories, blogs, reviews etc, the world of writing is my favourite place. Over four decades it has been a dream of mine to hold up a book and be able to say, ‘I wrote this!’
The beginning of July will bring the realisation of that dream.
