OK, one more post about my birthday. This is a special one, as it has to do with the gift I bought for myself. For 10 years I've been waiting to get a new car, never had one in my life. I really wanted it to be a Lexus but I had to postpone it three times over the past few years due to business and financial challenges. Now, I am finally the proud owner of a couple of thriving businesses and the Lexus. Entering my sixth decade doesn't feel so bad or strange now :-) The Lexus folks could not have been nicer: complimentary sandwich, birthday cake, flowers, sparkling new car with full tank of petrol... Thanks Debbie Hunt and your colleagues for a wonderful experience!
OMG - following my meetings at London Book Fair: * 8 of our books now being considered for audiobook editions in Russian opportunity with HUGE distribution * one of our partners is looking at taking 6 more of our glorious books for the Malaysia/Singapore market, and * I just signed a contract for ALL of our books to be sold and distributed in 43 countries in Africa and the Caribbean. Very happy girl today!
Keeping a smile on my face today, while feeling very fragile. It's 7 years today that my wonderful dad passed away. He was such a character, so loving and creative. Such an inspiration, having put his writing on hold at age 25 to do something more 'practical and realistic(teaching!), then picking it up the moment he retired at age 65 and producing 5 full-length screenplays and much more! He even joined The Book Midwife team for a few years, helping our client with screenplays. I miss him and think of him all the time. Looking forward to my session with Tony J Selimi today, where we will do some special healing work <3
If you can already feel something special happening and are excited about 2014, say YES!
