That moment all authors relish when I finally have a copy of my book in hand. The finished product.
The result of many months of work. Months in which whenever the dreaded writers’ block descended, I wondered if I’d ever get to the end. Now the book’s been delivered. I’m holding it.
Rather like the new-born baby. My creation.
Thoughts now turn to how readers are going to react to it. Will they chuckle and love it or will they throw my baby out with the bathwater? If they’re like Dora in the above cartoon, totally absorbed by it, then it will truly have been worthwhile.
