A momentous day, peeps!
Yes, it’s a big day for me today. I have signed off on the interior layout of Fractured!! Yeehawwwwwww! What that means is that the draft that the publisher has drawn up of everything I want inside the book – the story, the Acknowledgments (do read that, please) and Sneak Peek into Book Two (yes!!!) – they’ve laid it all out, spacing, fonts etc and sent it to me for my approval and I did! I approved! I’m happy with the layout. That means things can progress and we get closer and closer to the release date. All that’s left to approve is the designer’s book cover which they are working on at the moment. You see, I gave them pretty specific instructions as to how I wanted the book cover so hopefully they do a good job of it, otherwise they have to keep going until it’s exactly how I want it. But once I’ve approved the cover, apparently it’s only 10-15 days afterwards that it’ll be launched onto Amazon and Barnes and Noble, worldwide, plus other sites. 10-15 days!!!!! GAHHHHHHHHHH!!! 😱😱😱😱
The other event that happened today is that I can now announce the name of the series. You see, Fractured is book one, there is more to the story….book two and three are almost completely written. I had chosen the series title but had to wait to get the clearance on that and I got that today too! Yay and double gahhhhhhhhhh! 😱😱😱😱😱😱
So, things are happening! I really hope and pray that you will get behind me and not only buy my first book but then review it on whichever site you bought it from. Reviews are SO SO incredibly important and will certainly help the success of the book. As you know, I’m self publishing, which isn’t cheap and given that, I hope that the sales of book one can finance book two and onwards. Fingers crossed, anyway! The publishing adventure begins very very soon!!
Another thing that happened today is that I realised that I need to start practicing signing my pen name! Ha! Why that hasn’t occurred to me earlier, I have no idea, lol. But when I was about to sign off on the layout, I had a moment of thinking – do I sign my real name or my pen name?! Hahaha. A delightful dilemma. 😊😜
A great day of progress, indeed. I’m a happy girl.
I hope you are as happy as me today. Bless you all.😘😘😘
Until next time, as always,

So happy for you! Karma has come back to you as you so richly deserve!! Way to go!!
Thankyou so much Ruth, that’s a lovely thing to say. Sending you a virtual squishy hug. 😘😘
Ok, I’ll see if I can find it. I’ve changed phones since then, so I’m not quite sure 😉
That’s wonderful hun, sooo exciting! Can’t wait to see how it all turns out! 😀
I thought the cover was already done & we’d already seen it in one of your other posts/tweets? What was that hot pic you shared a while ago? Was that pic a part of the book?
That pic was just an announcement poster that I made for the big news of the title and pen name. I had to have a sexy couple on that poster….I just had to. Lol. But the book cover itself isn’t released yet. More exciting stuff to come, hey babe?!
Oh ok hun, now I get it! Can’t wait to see how it turns out! Will it still be along the lines of what we were experimenting with last summer, or did you decide to go in a different direction?

Okay, now I’m stumped…what were we experimenting with ? I don’t remember! Lol
Don’t you remember hun?
Remember the special pic of a delicious couple that I was trying to change & manoeuvre to try to get the look you had in your mind, before I realised that your publisher’s artist would be doing it anyway?
Oh, I remember that! Do you still have that picture? If so, pop it into messenger,…I wouldn’t mind seeing it again,
So, the book will be the most perfect Christmas present ever!! If I can wait that long, that is. So, so happy for you!
Yes, a perfect gift for Christmas! Lol. Thankyou Inger for your support! So appreciated.love and kisses from Australia.
