Gosh, what a journey! And that's in more ways that one...but today I have officially become a published writer. I'm sitting here staring at the final book just to remind myself that this is all real and not just some fabulous dream....
Today will be hectic...I have pasties to cook and no I didn't make them from scratch, but bought them from the wonderful organic Gear Farm
which is a stones throw from my own Cornish house and has the best pasties....really. If you can't make the launch, you will have to trust me on this unless you make it to Cornwall or buy them from Whole Foods
I have wine and fizz to chill...tricky at the moment when the fridge is filled with pasties! Ice to buy. Children to round up from various parts of the country...DH will be flying in from, um, I think Norway. My parents are here with me...
I have to remember to stop and smell the roses...or in this case enjoy this longed for moment. For someone who works with words everyday and uses those words to evoke and explain emotion I struggle when expressing my own. Right now I am walking on tightrope high above and dancing at the same time.
I have dreamt this dream a thousand times, but it has never taken this wonderful shape before...the one where I'm right now - supported by my whole family and friends old and new...real life and on-line. It is magic and I am blessed. For this day I can forget the hard work and the crows of doubt and just enjoy this magic moment!
So enough of my waffling...while you have been enjoying the wisdom of 'One Thing I've Learnt
' either The Cornish House
or moi have been appearing all over the place. So here are the links...
The first is for those that can't join in the launch in London tonight. the fabulous Heroine Addicts are throwing a launch party...this should really come with a warning judging by others I have attended there...But do drop by and join in the mayhem at The Cornish House Launch Party
I'm on the Virgin Megastore ME blog talking about the The Cornish House here
I'm answering some excellent question about me and The Cornish House at Female First here
There is a wonderful review on Bookersatz here
The wonderful Mel Sherrett
has written the most lovely blog post about friendship in this crazy on-line world we live in and it made me teary...here
Tomorrow will the be the picture round of the launch tonight (cameras working that is...) and then back to more 'One Thing I've Learnt' posts....
