Well, this is it; the day that I sometimes doubted would ever come. It's Turning the Tide's official publication day today. It's actually been out since 3rd June, which was fitting too since it marked the fifth anniversary of my dad's death in a good way, but books, it seems, like Her Maj, can have two birthdays.
Just when I was beginning to think I would have to wait as long as
this dear lady who, at 82, has just been published by Honno, the long apprenticeship paid off when Choc Lit signed me up. So, really this is to say to anyone who's waiting and hoping, keep writing, keep sending work out and one day you'll get there.
Huge thanks to you all for all your support, and an extra big thank you to lovely Kate Harrison who gave me such a stonking cover quote.
