Today was an interesting day! I woke this morning feeling a little tired. A week of late nights and early mornings were taking a toll. Today finally saw the end to all of the edits! YES I AM DONE! Beneath the Snow of Gnojnik is going to print! I stretched lazily prepared to go straight back to sleep and catch up on all of those lost hours of rest, until it hit me... It was March 26th, I was appearing on my very first Writers panel today!! Some months ago I was contacted by the organisers of the 'Grassroots Writers 2017' and asked to be a guest on the Self Published writers discussion panel. Today was the day. I pounced out of bed and started preparations for the day ahead...

After a few months of indecision I have now made a decision. I gave "Beneath the Snow of Gnojnik" to a publishing company to look over before I self published. I have never done this before. After finishing a novel I am too excited and too impatient to wait for a publishing company to get back to me with a yes or no, I simply publish it myself. The only reason I gave it to them this time is I feel this book, being based on a true story deserves to be spread further than I thought I would be able to spread it. Having said that, a mixture reasons including a little impatience on my behalf, has brought me to the decision to self publish. (Just would like to add the publishing company didn't say no, they just didn't share the urgency in which I wanted to get this book released.)

I can't express loudly enough, how grateful I am to see the end of those unbearable 'HOT' Summer's days. Today was perfect. Just the right amount of heat making swimming enjoyable, mixed with a cool breeze taking out the sting of the suns rays. I know at times I prattle on about how beautiful the Mid North Coast of Australia is... but when you live somewhere as beautiful as this... you can't help but be grateful every day...

This book has been an amazing writing journey for me. Beneath the snow of Gnojnik is like no other book I have written to date and very soon you will see why. I have been a little illusive in regards to a release date for this very special novel, the reason?... This is the first novel I have sent to a publishing company before releasing it. Patients has never been my strong suit, so waiting this long for an answer from them has been painful! Well you don't need to wait much longer... Tomorrow is the day I will find out if they want to publish it or if I will be self publishing.

With 'Beneath the Snow of Gnojnik' only weeks away from release preparations are well underway for this exciting event. Tonight I have been busily sorting through photos from our photo-shoot to see which one to use as the cover. It is soooo hard to pick! There are so many amazing shots. I think it just might have to go to the vote again....Here is a little cover teaser for you....
