Hi Lollie and Tricia. I'm on vacation until next Friday, and accessing my files is a bit tricky at the moment (able to do it, but not easy). This first book is based on the hobbies Challenge back in 2007 (I think), and I don't think either of you are in this particular book. I will need to check my author list again, but I can't get to that at the moment.
I held the book in my hands for the first time today, and it is perfect. I love everything about it. The colours leap off the cover. It's crisp, alive, bright and everything I wanted, and it looks great between the covers too. As soon as I get back from this holiday, I'll be hard at work on Book 2, which is from about 2011 or 2012 (based on the book titles Challenge).
To see a concept finally come together is incredibly satisfying.

My sisters and step-mother were with me when I opened the package from the printer with the test copies. I gave a copy to my oldest sister, Diane, and one to my step-mother. This is Dorothy (step-mum) enjoying her first copy (and she definitely wasn't going to give it back. LOL. She loved it.)
