First Book Excitement

The past six weeks have been full of excitement as my debut book came out. The first time I saw in on the shelves was in London, when I was there for my first Mills and Boon author party.

Locally I had a launch in a fabulous clothes shop, Duet. I signed copies of my book in a shop full of beautiful clothes whilst sipping bubbly. The support I've had from local people has been overwhelming, but it was a bit of a shock to find my photo on the front of the local paper!

In my hometown of Worcester, my mum, a piano teacher, organised another signing for all the pupils and their parents who'd supported me through the So You Think You Can Write competition last year and again now, by buying my book. This also gave me the chance for a quick catch up with my school friend Vanessa, who I've known since primary school. She has always urged me to keep writing.

I've also really enjoyed the photos friends and readers have sent me of my book on the shelves here in UK as well as in America.

Having my first book out has been an amazing experience, made all the more fun by the support of family, friends and readers. 
I hope you all enjoyed the book.

Thank You!
