Happy New Year! What a week it’s been. After a long Christmas break in Cornwall (more to come about that very soon) we’ve been hit by illness this week. Tony has been particularly unwell.
My long lists of things to tackle this week after the break has been understandably neglected, but work on my books has been pressing forward nonetheless. I was really excited to receive the first layouts of the first book I submitted to the publisher over Christmas. I’ve been poring over it during the break. It is a strange experience seeing my work laid out on paper. I submitted the book in Word format, and suddenly it’s transformed into colourful pages, set out in beautiful fonts and with brilliant colour photos. Somehow my words read differently now, so I’ve been making some changes to the text.
I also attended the last photo shoot over in Bristol, which was great. I’ve really enjoyed being a part of it. It’s fascinating to see how it all works and the team I’ve been working with have been genuinely brilliant.
As each step of the process passes, it feels more and more real. And I’m already really excited to see the final versions.
