Sitting in my writing room today a week on from the launch of my self published book IF ONLY WE HAD FOREVER I have time to reflect on what a week it’s been. Launch party, book sales, CD’s live on iTunes, Website live, YouTube video released!
Monday 5th evening I had an intimate launch party surrounded by dear friends, supporters, Ben and Dannii from Bloodwise, half of the band Long Way Back and Steve who made this blog and the website possible. While sipping virgin Mojitos and feeling the bubbles from the prosecco IF ONLY WE HAD FOREVER was gently released to the world. I made a speech of thanks sharing the emotional time travelled to write my story, Ben said some kind words along with important details of how Bloodwise researches and strives to Beat Blood Cancer. We played the song officially for the first time.
Formalities over time to mingle, relax and try to take in what is actually happening tonight. Books sold, CD's purchased and many asked me to scribe my signature with a few words as a memory of the night, while optimism saw the signing as a precious autograph for when If Only becomes a block buster and the film is premiered!
As guests leave with books tucked under their arms and cds popping out of the tops of handbags, hugs and kind words are given with smiles. A few dear friends left behind join me on the sofas to try and absorb the evening that has just passed. As we sip our chosen tipples, chatter and laughter from the night is taken over by happy heavy eyes. Time to head home, look back on a very special evening and soak up the dreams which will take IF ONLY WE HAD FOREVER to new places in an adventure that WILL make a difference helping others and saving lives.
IF ONLY WE HAD FORVER is now a book that is growing, a beautiful song with two versions and now a video has been launched to accompany this..
