THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!



Mum and Me (2005-ish)
Short and sweet post today for the end of my blogging week. I just want to say THANK YOU to all my wonderful followers who commented and reposted my book trailer on facebook yesterday. You have NO IDEA how much I appreciate it. I went to bed all weepy last night. After having had a pretty low day (been a bit unreasonably depressed lately) my heavy head and chest suddenly filled with sweet air and butterflies. I'm so thrilled my trailer touched so many of you. And for those who are still wondering, yes, it's me singing in the trailer. Even though I do write songs myself, the original song for this trailer was written by my mother. I adored it and asked if I could remix it, and she said yes. So I changed the lyrics to fit the book and re-recorded it. So thanks so much MUM!

If you still haven't had a chance to see the trailer, just check out yesterday's post! Have a great weekend everyone. And THANK YOU again!!!

PS: Here's the LINK to my mother's original song if you're interested!

XOXO
