Alex just spotted the work in progress sketches/book in my printer and asked if he could read it. “Of course” I said, so we sat down and he read it to me. When it came to the bit where we talk about spreading Martin’s ashes, and how it doesn’t mean that we will stop thinking […]
Hello! Thank you all so, so much for supporting my second book ‘What happened to Daddy’s Body?’ – it’s fully funded now, which is AMAZING, but every penny helps, and every penny will go towards the book. 7 hours left to pledge. :o) Check out the rewards on: http://www.bloomvc.com/project/What-Happened-to-Daddys-Body xxx
It’s so good to see the new book grow. Just been sent another sketch by the lovely Anna Jarvis, and, if I had any doubts about whether I needed to do this or not, I now know that I’m doing the right thing. I can’t wait to see it finished. It is, unfortunately, so needed. […]
After the huge crowdfunding success of “Is Daddy Coming Back in a Minute?” I am asking for your help again…. I used to love listening to stories at night in my bed, and my kids do the same today (albeit mine were on tape, and theirs are on CD! ;o) ) – How amazing would […]
Got the barcode, the lovely Anna is just finishing off the end papers, I will go through everything with a fine toothcomb, and we should hopefully go to print by the end of the week! OMG. It’s actually happening. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart. And how appropriate it being my last […]
Well, I am pleased to report that this was the first day of Alex’s meds. We struggled to get him to swallow his first ever tablet, but got there in the end (one ended up in the bin). And, although I have seen him yawn a couple of times, he doesn’t seem to have struggled […]
Sorry we’ve been quiet – STILL waiting on that dummy mock-up, been chasing the printer, and meantime Alex has been diagnosed with narcolepsy and cataplexy – something I had suspected for a long time, but I’ve finally got a diagnosis.
OMG – just spoke to a distribution company in the US – this particular guy specialises in eBooks. Is this a good idea? A book that you can’t touch??? Getting the ball rolling though, and their UK office might be able to help with the distribution of the physical book.
CT scan done (another first), covered in red pen and three permanent red tattoo dots. ‘Sigh’ to starting another part of the journey, ‘YEAH!!!’ to it being the last of the steps to beat cancer for good. :-))))) xx Thank you all for your continued support. We are soooooo close to the final version of […]
