Last trip to the post office - last bundle of prize books sent on their way to the winners. Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate my 65th published title. Sharing celebrations with readers is something really special. Why do I love it so much ? Well - there's the reader who has recently lost both her sister and her brother - and who is looking after her sister's 4 year old. The lady who is bed bound and loves my books because "reading is the only thing that takes me away." Or the reader who is longing for the time when her army husband comes back to her and her sons. The lady who had just broken her wrist that afternoon. And these are just 4 of the winners. And people wonder why I love to write and share 'escapism'. It's an honour - and SUCH a compliment to think that my books can help people through difficult time and brighten a dark moment. I know that feeling and it's wonderful to think my words have been able to help others that way. Here's to 'escapism'!
Now all I have to do is to tidy my desk and get back to more writing words
And anyone who's waiting for a prize giveaway book - it's on its way!
