EBook Publication Day Party: Thank you!!

This past Saturday evening felt like Christmas Eve for me. After an evening of toasting marshmallows and watching movies with my sisters, I got in to bed feeling somewhat in wonder of what Sunday would bring.

Since the blog tour for 'How to Bake a New Beginning' had been well underway and a few reviewers had been leaving reviews over on Netgalley, I had been able to read some rather lovely thoughts on my book baby and already felt incredibly touched. But Sunday was the day that I got to say "IT'S PUBLICATION DAY'.

On Sunday the Kindle edition of my debut novel was released into the world. That still sounds a little crazy to say! I was filled with a little trepidation, but the wonder and excitement remained strong as I simply wanted to enjoy the moments that made up the day, for I had never experienced a publication day before.

My family were absolutely incredible and never seize to amaze me with the love they provide me with. I admit, my emotions were a little all over the place for one reason or another, but the love and support they filled my heart with, well sometimes even i'm stumped for words.

This cake was unbelievable. Oh my goodness and it smelled amazing. Kelly had chosen Lemon which was perfect and delicious, and it just looked so freaking cute. My little book turned into a cake. Thank you so much Kelly for making that happen and to Cakes and Toppers by Charlotte for creating it and making it so wonderful! 

Oh and Hey Hels, your gorgeous picture is on the table as my Dad and sisters had put together a little booklet of some of the reviews so far, which was rather lovely! Visit Hels blog to see all her latest reads and stunning pictures! 

How incredible is this banner? This was all my sister Jen. Each part of the bunting had a symbol from the book cover or represented a place from the book. I adore the Italy and the Golden Gate Bridge ones, they look so awesome! I can't wait to put this banner up in my office, it makes me smile so much. Thank you Jen. And, these bookmarks are the cutest things. My sister's made these too and I love them, they are so pretty!

Family time is so special. I very much enjoyed spending the day with my family, getting to hang out with Nanna and see her so happy, getting to see my beautiful cousin Jillian and my Uncle Alan, and spending time with my brother and his family, and of course, sister and Mum and Dad time, uh it filled my heart with so much joy.

Also, I just wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who sent a message, commented, tweeted, and shared the love online, you are all AMAZING and made the day extra special. I can't thank you all enough. I truly hope you enjoy 'How to Bake a New Beginning'. And a huge THANK YOU for everything goes out to everyone at HQ Digital for making this day possible in believing in me and my book, I'm forever grateful!!

'How to Bake a New Beginning' is NOW available in Kindle edition on Amazon.  and also in Audible. The paperback will be released October 4th!

Have an amazing day everyone!
