My Proof Copies of THE CORNISH HOUSE

I have a lump in my throat as I write this...my proof copies of THE CORNISH HOUSE arrived at lunch time. DH and I were eating in a restaurant that features in the book when the delivery came for my signature. It was all I could do to stop myself from hugging the man.
DH has promised to read the book now that it's in print. Here he is looking for the saucy bits.
All I can say is that it is an amazing feeling to have your book in your hands. I keep touching it trying to prove to myself that it is real and not a dream. I loved seeing the cover but to experience the book in 3D and to smell it...yes, odd I know but any way to imprint the moment in my memory for ever.
And one more picture because it looks so pretty with the flowers from my Cornish garden....

Many, many congratulations Liz - and so very well deserved. And do you know what? That feeling never gets old. And it IS magical.
One tip? You could start looking for a wonderful large picture frame to hold your cover art [cover flat or scan]for your book and the first foreign translations which will soon be winging their way to you.
And that way the proud DH will have fun fiddling with the card mount and you can have a giggle and a toe wiggle every time you look at them.
Wonderful. And so very very special.
Grinning and do the happy dance for you.
