Happy Bookiversary To Me!ย 

  
My debut novel The Second Love Of My Life was first published here in the UK a year ago today! It was a dream come true to hold the book in my hands and see it on the book shelves. And it still is.

I still receive messages from readers who have enjoyed the book and that is always the most wonderful feeling. Getting published was a long journey for me, and for most writers, so knowing the book has found a place in someone’s heart just makes it all worthwhile.  


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who got a copy and supported the book’s release (and who are still supporting it and me!). Being a writer can be lonely sometimes and it’s easy to doubt yourself so knowing that someone has enjoyed your book is a huge boost and you guys have put a smile on my face so many times since publication.

Lots of love and hugs,

Victoria

A really quick post to say thank you to you lovely lot for all your support in 2015! This year has flown by and I’m so excited to share more of publication journey with you when 2016 arrives and I can finally say “my novel is being published THIS year!”

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year! And Harry sends you all a hearty meow too ๐Ÿ™‚

  
See you on the other side! 

Lots of Christmas love,

Victoria

Festive Fun

I love decorating the house for Christmas and we were the first in our road to get ours up. And I had a special helper* this year too

*not going to lie, he was more of a hinderance ๐Ÿ˜‰

Harry definitely thought the Christmas tree and decorations were cats toys and I spent a lot of time chasing him away from them. But he did keep a close eye on me making sure I decorated the tree correctly!

I think he was happy with the finished result!

As at Christmas you never need an excuse for a tipple, my mum and I stopped by the place the family are going to for Christmas day dinner and sat in their library section for a glass of Prosecco. Fizz plus books! I could have stayed here all night ๐Ÿ˜‰ Am now every excited to go back on the 25th and sample their food.
