Publication day has finally arrived for The Coal Miner’s Son, but you know what, I’m feeling a little flat. What was I expecting this morning? Fireworks or what? I’m not sure. All I know is that the run up to this day has been hectic with book signing, packing them up and posting, and lots of marketing.
However, the sun is shining and life looks good. Five years ago today at this time I was alone in a Bucharest hospital waiting for my husband to arrive and waiting for an operation on my broken hip. A lot has changed in those five years and that includes me, I am no longer the same person.
Although today feels flat I’m proud of what I’ve achieved in publishing two books that readers seem to love and wish that my late mum and sister were both here to share this moment with me.
So away with the gloom and let’s embrace The Coal Miner’s Son starting with fizz this evening and an online launch party on Facebook. Hope as many of you as possible can be here.
Here’s a candle for Mum and Heather
and a glass of sparkly to toast The Coal Miner’s Son‘s arrival.
Watch out throughout the day for links to blogs where I talk about my writing.
