*Unless you count the years I spent writing features for Trade magazines about Shrink Wrapping and packaging machinery...and I never got this excited about those. Oh, apart from the one I wrote about the Cadbury's Creme Egg line we installed - which I was VERY proud of - entitled "Eggs-pertise by *name of company*".
The piece is going to appear in IT'S FATE! Magazine and I couldn't have done it without my on-line spirit-sister, Deborah Durbin.
It's about the time my Dad predicted the date.. yes DATE - he'd die when he was reading my cards - without knowing what it meant. And not only that, but he kind of popped back the day before his funeral and gave me a sign - which I'd asked him to do the night we said our farewells.
And I don't want to spoil the excitement for you, so that's all I'm saying. I'm very encouraged. The Editor said it was a "lovely account" and I'm delighted!
Plus, the subbing for GROUNDED starts here.....well, Tuesday to be precise. As previously reported, I have finished, slept on and now, after my ever-supportive little soul-sister, Keris Stainton who kindly read, said she thinks this is going to be "the One" and that she "loved" this, my 2nd Teenage book, I have the confidence to start making enquiries to Agents.
So in all, a pretty good place to be, I'd say.
