…advance copies of my paris book just arrived by courier!!

I have been a nervous-wreck for the past week, ever since my publisher told me they were on their way – the realization that I would see the book in the flesh for the first time was almost unbearable – over a years worth of work in one compact little package. I admit I was fretting, not knowing if I would be happy with the final outcome.

But guess what? I LOVE IT. I’m so happy!

And I just had to tell you that.

Have a wonderful weekend my dear readers!


PS yay!!!

PPS here is a little snippet of the front cover!

    I didnt know. I’m a new reader here at your blog. I’ve been following your blog, reading it now and then, for a couple of months.
    It must be absolute wonderful……..create your own book…
    (I’m sorry if my english is not correct… I’m a norwegian girl.. trying to write english as good as I can.)

    I hope you will have great success with your book! Best wishes for you.
    Where can I buy your book?

    Hi Kathrin! Thanks so much for your wonderful comment – your english is great!

    The book is not yet available for purchase as I just received an advance copy hot off the printer. It will be launched at the end of May and will be sold in all good bookstores around the world! And plenty of online stores too.

    Have a great weekend! Hope to see you around here again. Stop by anytime!
