Something pretty exciting happened on Friday. I had a meeting with my publisher and he surprised me with the very first copies of my latest book, Simply Scottish Cakes & Bakes.
I was stunned and excited and totally thrilled. These are the preview copies with the main order due to arrive for release at the end of October, I just hadn’t expected to see my book so soon.
So this is it, my book, all bright and shiny and wow am I thrilled!
Here’s your sneak preview, and I’ve also just put up a full page on the book here that links from the book image on the side bar too.
As you can imagine this kind of led to a bit of a celebratory weekend. I visited Mum on Friday and showed her, then on to stay with my lovely friend Madge and we raised a few glasses and toasted the book rather a lot. Then on Saturday I did it all over again with Colette and Simon.
I am now sobering up……
It’s funny how you can live with something every day for months, write it, bake it, photograph it and jiggle about with it all on a computer day after day, but when you see it all done and dusted and wrapped up in real paper and bound into a book it all suddenly seems so unreal.
Did I really do this?
Yes, whoopeeee I did!
This is a moment, a really, really good moment, I wish you were all here to share it with me.
