I’ve been a bit off schedule and distracted lately, so I wanted to apologise and explain myself. I am so very sorry for being an unreliable correspondent.
As you know, I was inspired by a conversation overheard on the train to start writing an amusing book called Stress Free Dinner Parties explaining the serious business of how to plan and host a Dinner Party. It is now available on Amazon for Kindle.
It’s getting very exciting, and a little stressful. But I am so very glad that I have embarked on this challenge – it has been exhilarating!
After my first round of editing I realised there was a lot of missing information so I have been furiously writing to get it all down, and now the book is about a third longer than I had originally planned. I still have another round of editing and proofreading to do, but I am determined to release it on schedule so I think that Nanna naps and proper home cooked food may have just flown out the window for the next week or so!
I found a graphic designer and with a great deal of nervous anticipation commissioned the cover. The drafts aren’t exactly what I want yet, though he’s been really helpful and seeing the variations come through has been thrilling. MY BOOK COVER! So wonderfully awfully amazing. (If you think I may have a smile permanently plastered on my lips you are correct).
That’s it – is that a good excuse?
