Receiving Returning

On Tuesday, a much anticipated delivery arrived. Fifty copies of Returning.

When I got home from work, I looked at the boxes. The MissyMoos all wanted their cuddles followed by a myriad of other simultaneous requests, which I attended to, savouring the image of the closed boxes.

Once the tasks and distractions were done with, I approached the boxes slowly, deliberately. I carefully cut through the tape, to reveal this:

My book. My book, with my name on the cover. I could finally, after years of toiling and imagining, hold my work in my hands.

Over the past few days, I have felt like Santa Claus, distributing copies by hand to friends who have requested them. I am so thankful for the support I've received from my family and friends. The euphoria of the fact of this all happening has, I must admit, been tinged by nervousness - I am imagining all of these people reading Returning and wondering what they will think of it. I hope they enjoy it. So far, I have received positive comments from a couple of people who have begun reading, so I am a little relieved!

If you want to get your hands on a copy either physically (paperback) or virtually (ebook), www.francescasuters.weebly.com/books.html has a listing of online booksellers from which the book is available - just click on your preferred vendor and go from there.

Happy reading!
