So today was a very special day for me.
The Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Mother Christmas all turned up in the shape of Leith as she handed me the proof copy for my book Polly’s Piralympics.
I was soooo excited I had found myself glued to the spot and turning circles I couldn’t decide what to do first when she called to say it was ready and she would meet me in an hour.
An hour later there it was, all shiny and still in its cellophane wrapper. I eagerly opened it and flicked the pages breathing in that ‘new book’ scent. It was finally here.
4 years to this point, the writing has been the easiest part. Now the hard work really starts. For an Indie Author, it doesn’t matter how good you book is or isn’t, you have to get it out there and get it read and that’s where my Fairy Godmother comes in. Deborah Du Plooy has agreed to launch my book at Skoobs, notably the Dillons book store of South Africa, it is located in Monte Casino. Johannesburg.
It is a wish come true for any new writer. Deborah makes a point of promoting Indie Authors and is coming up on their 100th launch. I feel graced and privileged to join fellow authors that have preceded me and cant wait until January 28th 2017 at 10.30am.
Theme of the day Arrrrr Pirates!
Polly the parrot will be making a guest appearance, along with real live pirates who will fight it out for the treasure. So if you are in the area, bring, borrow or steal a child for the day and join us for all the fun.
