Only The Most Lovely thing happened to me yesterday.
The fabulous Jo Cotterill came round for a cup of tea – and brought me a copy of her brilliant new book:
Now, having had a sneaky preview of this book (which isn’t quite out yet) I can tell you it’s Amazing and Wonderful and you have to get it – but I warn you to get a large box of tissues at the same time. And if you’re into wearing make up make sure it’s run proof.
Anyhow, if that wasn’t lovely enough . . . it was a SIGNED copy and, if that wasn’t even more lovely enough . . . she urged me to turn to the dedication page.
Blimey Blooming Blimey, she’s only gone and given me a mention in the dedication!
Bumblebees’ Bottoms, Flickering Spew and Badgers’ Butts! Thank you Jo!
Folks, I honestly can’t tell you what it feels like to see your name on the dedication page of a book – especially a brilliant book like this.
The funny thing is, I’ve dedicated each of my books to someone – and frankly have always been a bit baffled and embarrassed even, by their enthusiastic, and sometimes emotional responses.
NOW I get it!
