It's nearly here!

Hi everyone


Sorry it's been a while since I've updated you. Mum died just before Christmas and it's taken me a while to get back on track - but here I am.


So much has happened. The cover design is now finalised. There's been a legal read to make sure that patients can't be identified, plus proof-reading and final tweaking and acknowledgements to write - but it's all done!


The launch date is 6th July - I'll actually be driving back from Italy in my electric car so I have to hope it all goes according to plan.


So it's now time for me to start cracking on with the pledges for you all. I've got books to sign, sourdough videos to create and five dresses to make.The team at Unbound will be in touch with you all for your addresses to send things to, and you should get your books at the end of June.


Once again, a HUGE thank you for taking a chance on me and my story. 


With love

Can't wait Liz! You are a voice of calm reason and for anyone who has been touched by cancer, especially breast cancer, a trusted expert.
I also love your knitting and your nails!
