Hi there, my lovelies!
I have some 😃WONDERFUL😃 & long-awaited news to share with you all.
The print-run has been paid for & is happening as I write – with everything in place for me to take delivery of the books on July 8th or very soon after!
That means that once those pre-orders that require signing by both myslef & Andy are done in our bestest handwriting, and each order gets packaged up nicely, that I can take a very proud journey to the Post Office in Bude and post off all your orders!
I don’t think it’s all quite sunk in yet!
As well as receiving that wonderful news, this week – I spent an amazing day in Boscastle on Tuesday & have been blown away by everyone in the village’s generosity of spirit & time, plus the incredible support that shop owners and villagers have shown to me.
More about what magical Boscastle is bestowing on me in a future blogpost – but it is totally beyond generous & I feel SO blessed 😇
Part of my day in Boscastle was spent in the Riverside Hotel- where, I first put pen to paper, during 1 holiday, many moons ago- scribbling some ideas down for a children’s book, when I got chatting to a waiter & he showed me some of his artwork, as he’d really love to be an illustrator one day!
That waiter was Andy Templar & the rest as they say is history!
Some things really are meant to be aren’t they!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be finally getting this book to print & I will be absolutley beside myself when I post them all off.
All being well, your orders should be winging their way to you no later than the week beginning July 19th.
(Of course until the books physically exist they are still available to pre-order from the website!)
What excellent timing- I’ve just realised that July 19th is the same date that hopefully ALL restrictions will be lifted, too😊
😊WHAT A VERY HAPPY DAY TO LOOK FORWARD TO- EVERYONE😊
& I really couldn’t have done it without you!
