Publication Day!


I'm briefly breaking cover from my extended (thank you!) deadline to share a little bit of cyber champagne and a HUGE whoopee of joy - because today THE WAY TO A WOMAN'S HEART is published in paperback which means it's available in the shops!!!!

There were times (as always) when I thought TWTAWH would never be a real book - but it is - and I've just seen it, several of it actually - face out!!!! - in our local W H Smith. I do love the cover - perfect for Valentine's Day. Of course I was still too timid to tell them I wrote it, but I did lurk around the shelves and smile a lot...

So - another publication day has arrived. It's been very low-key, but it's the 19th since 1997. Crikey - did I really do all that WORK?????

Still, no time to celebrate at the moment - NEVER CAN SAY GOODBYE has to be delivered in two weeks. So - as I slink off back to Francesca's Fabulous Frocks - and Frankie and Dexter and Brian from the kebab van and Maisie the useless medium - here's to publication day number 20...

It's wonderful that seeing a new book of yours in shops is still exciting even though you've seen it many times before. I don't think I'd tire of the thrill, either. Congratulations!

Wahey and well done and lots of whooping and cheering!

Must be lovely to see it in the shops - I shall look out for it myself tomorrow! And you're nearly there with #20, that is truly amazing, well done again and keep going!

Hurrah! Very pleased to receive my preordered copy too. Currently making my way through your entire back-catalogue, thank you loads for doing all that work.

Karen - thank you so much. When can I read yours??? Cx

Christina Jones said...

Groovy - thank you! I do tend to get very overexcited about it - maybe one day I'll be all blase - but somehow I doubt it. Cx

Christina Jones said...

alzamina - thank you! I can't believe it's 19 either. CX

Christina Jones said...

womag - thank you. Am still basking in the fact that a) I actually finished it and b) it's finally out there. TWTAWH seemed like a very protracted labour (of love???) Cx

Christina Jones said...

Debs - thank you! For EVERYTHING! Cx

Milla - thank you so much - for buying it and reading the backlist. Wow! You're a total star. Cx
