It's almost P-Day! Woooooo-hoooo!!
I am very proud to announce that Welcome to My World! is officially unleashed tomorrow!
Some of my lovely twitter friends have told me they've already seen it in their local bookshops and several of them are reading it already - eek!
When a book is published, you receive a list of all the places that are doing special promotions for your novel. It's just amazing to think that my little story is Paperback of the Week and a 3 for 2 title in Waterstones, (something I dreamed of being when I was an aspiring writer), has a free limited edition mirror at Sainsbury's (see pic - I have shrink-wrap, too! Unbelievably cool...), has a free limited edition lipgloss in Tesco (awesome stuff) and has a 'Buy Welcome to My World, Get Fairytale of New York Free' in Asda...
What's so strange is that this is the 400-page Word document that has, in one form or another, been a major part of my life all year. To see it finally unleashed in all its sparkly glory on the bookshelves of my favourite shops is impossibly wonderful. If you'd told me three years ago that this would be happening, I would have thought you'd been sneaking a snifter of Christmas sherry a month early... There's no other word for it: it's wonderful.
I'd love to know what you think of Welcome to My World- leave me a comment here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Right. I'm off to sneak into a bookshop and revel in the sight of my books out in the big wide world - woo-hoo!
