My Story on 'Story of Mum'

The book is here!

So the book, or rather, books are here, and we’re trying to keep on top of orders, payments, invoices, packaging and trips to the post office! I’m really pleased with the ‘heft’ of the book, as such, because it’s printed on glossy paper so that the colour illustrations have a real depth to them. Only problem with a heavier book is the increased postage costs! I’ve had a flick through the book, but haven’t had a chance to read it. Too busy keeping up with distribution…

Hope you enjoy it

The ISBNs have come and the first proof has arrived!

I think this is all rather self-explanatory, but I did just want to share how things are coming along. It’s funny how ten sets of 13 digits and a whole stack of papers has made me rather happy And the pre-orders are coming in too…

I'm losing the plot....

We’re all enjoying the novelty of having some hot summer weather, but it often means that my son is up with me at nighttime when I’m trying to do some work. I’m often typing away with him sat on my lap, as he forensically examines my wallet. I try to stay philosophical about it all. Being philosophical is my thing ;-)

It means that I’m making slow progress on the book and the e-commerce platform, and right now it feels as though I’m losing the plot…

So when I found the little ‘bendy’ man in the clutter beneath my cluttered desk the other day, I could empathise with his plight.

(By the way, since taking this photo his head has been glued back on.)
