Guess what arrived in the post yesterday? The author copies of my soon to be published novel, The Buddha’s Bone. This is the deluxe hardcover version and (even if I say so myself) they’re really gorgeous! I can’t believe my second novel is going to be released in another week.

I can’t really describe the excitement at holding your own book. It’s a feeling that will never get old. More so because I knew that with this book, I had designed everything myself, from the dust jacket to the colour of the digital cloth hardcover itself.

My little helper here couldn’t quite believe it either and asked me, “Why is your picture inside the book?” I think that was enough to convince a young enquiring mind that Mummy is an author!
