My mind reeled to the places I might have ordered something from. Nothing!
Surely it is some mistake. But, no it is not and my heart swelled with pride and giddiness when I saw from where the package came from.
Tearing away the brown paper (carefully), I found the book I have had the privilege to have my work included in. Yes, I have read the e-book when it first was available; however, what I held in my hands was a signed copy from the series editor, Charli Mills.
But, oh how I love the feel of a real book in my hands! The smell of the pages, the knowledge that when I read it again and again, I will find something new at each sitting. It is not the glare of the screen staring back at me, but the comforting sound when you turn the page. When I want to stop and mark the page, I use my favourite bookmark designed and gifted to my by Donna Murray.
Will it be something I will make into more words giving it a book of its own?
Maybe . . .
