The Morning After the Launch

I was overwhelmed this morning when my publisher, Crooked Cat, posted a message on Facebook to say that The Highland Lass was in the top #10 in two categories on Amazon UK! And here's the proof - must log it while it lasts! A huge thank you to anyone reading the blog who bought the book.


The official launch party was on Facebook and it was a wonderful, interactive day from before 9am until after 7pm. I was even featured in the Greenock Telegraph yesterday which made the day even more special. But even before that, I was absolutely delighted to receive an email from a writing friend who warmed my heart with the following extract from her message:

"Began reading The Highland Lass just after 7am this morning and very reluctant to stop reading but I have to go out! Your presentation for your novel is fantastic, what a lot you have got in it. I shall look at it again when I get home... I am delighting in the words I have read so far and can't wait to get back to the story."

Forgive me for feeling a little giddy today!

Enjoy the giddy feelings, Rosemary! And well done.

I have a saying. 'Fail to plan, and you're planning to fail, where as you have planned everything so well, thought it all out well in advance, left nothing to chance, and been meticulous with your presentation, therefore you were always going to succeed.

Feel proud, and wallow in the good feeling it gives you.
