An emotional day!

So, today I held a physical proof copy of my debut novel SAVING SOPHIE in my hands for the first time. Thanks AvonBooks!


This is what it was all for. The moment when the dream becomes reality. I'm clearly going to be a mess when it actually publishes!

The excitement and the feeling of accomplishment is huge.

However, this wonderful moment is tinged with some sadness. 

My lovely parents are no longer here to share this achievement with me. And that's pretty gutting.
But, I hope they'd have been proud. 

I've had incredible support over the last few days from friends and followers on social media, and my family and friends around me. I am so thankful for them, and to them.

I think this is cause for another celebration, don't you?

Can never have too much of that!

And every day counts. 

Thanks all! 

I'm off to stroke the cover...
