You know who you are!

Yes you, who for the last three and a half years have persistently given me feed-back, help and encouragement to get my story written and published - much easier said than done – as many of us know. There is a long way to go but I am a step nearer and am feeling happy and excited. Why you may ask.


The answer is that someone likes it enough to take me on board and help me towards my goal. Yippee!

It’s akin to reaching base camp on Everest and being given an experienced Sherpa for the rest of the journey.


I won’t write more about it at this stage but Leigh Russell has an interesting blog about getting her book Cut Short - a psychological thriller - published

A big thank you and I’ll continue doing my three posts a week DV.

woo-HOO!!! Such lovely news. Your story deserves a wide readership. I know I've read it on the blog, but I'll be buying at least one copy when it's published (yes that's WHEN not IF), so I hope you'll sign one for me when the time comes!

PI said...

Johng: I knew I could rely on you:)

Eryl: funny how it happened just after you had directed me to Leigh's blog. I've just ordered her book.

Congratulations and good luck. My hubby has seven published books--once your foot is in the door it becomes easier. Usually. You deserve all the kudos you get.
