Today I feel like a real author – and I’m one important step closer to publishing my novel. Can’t Live Without has just been sent off to the proofreader – yippee!

I’ve been a little quiet this week as I’ve been working hard to get it ready in time. I’m so excited I can barely sit still now, and before I do anything else I just want to say a really big thank you to all my wonderful beta-readers – that’s You! Thanks for all the comments, all the advice and support, and a special thank you to Emma and Bev. The book would not be as great as it is now without all your comments.

So, what next? This week I have a post coming about ISBNs – which books need them, and how many you need (you might be surprised) – and a rant about free ebooks. So watch out. And, hopefully, a brand new cover for you to comment on.

Off for a celebratory cup of tea. I know how to live it up!
