Feeling all sorts of nerves at the mo. Bit like those butterflies before your wedding day. I still can't quite believe its publication day in 4 days and my launch party in 3, so many special people who mean so much to me will be there and I've got to make a speech! 😝📖🎉🍾 #iwroteabook#anditsoutthisweek#htgab#howtogrowababyandpushitout
My mom gave me this gift for my birthday last December! I loved it so much but had no clue my book cover would be designed to look so much like it!! I love it even more than before. It is the gift that keeps on giving.❤️ . . . .
Look what turned up today! My book 📚 It's really weird seeing it in real life rather than just on my laptop screen but I hope you all enjoy it xx https://bookshop.theguardian.com/living-with-a-jude.html in case you want to order a copy 🤓😊
My daughter asked me, "Mom, what was your least favorite part of writing your book?" Without a breath I said ,"The editing process!" Here's the deal. After many rounds with an amazing editor, many people reading and a collaborative effort of dear friends, I can almost bet there will still be a mistake.
I got so many opinions along the way. I took some advice, but I also made my own bold decisions. I did discover not all edits were a must. You CAN put a comma before an "and", but guess what, you don't HAVE to! It was very freeing to have a choice on some of the smothering details.
"First of all this book will keep your attention....I am truly amazed how the author put it into words. I couldn't put it down because of the suspense of what was happening next. I will be waiting on another book from this author, she knows how to write and tell a story. Amazing book!" The reviews keep coming in. And they keep making me cry! All the hours, all the sacrifices, and all the stress all of a sudden fade away when I read what people are saying.
Thank you to all that took time to read and review. EVERYONE will be able to read and review in 2 weeks!!!! . . . .
