Proof ordered

I have a hard time believing we're already in the second half of February. I barely managed to do anything and yet, here we are... Only ten days away from the 


While I was working hard on promoting my 3rd novel, I totally missed my 2nd book's 1st birthday which was on 1st February. 

However, I'm going to correct this at the end of the month. Just watch this space.

To be honest, since Friday evening I've been squealing with excitement...

The reason for this is ~ I have already ordered a proof copy of my novel At the End of the Summer and I expect to get it latest on Friday, or so they promised. I cannot wait to get it. 

To check it for the grammar issues that escaped three pairs of keen eyes. To read it one more time before releasing it into the world and into your hands. 

To finally have it in my hands...

Handbag Gallery by Jessie Cahalin

A week or two ago I came across an interesting blog Books in my Handbag by Jessie Cahalin

While perusing it, my eyes were caught at the page on the blog called


and here I saw many different handbags with so many novels in them. I was wondering what was it all about, until then I didn't know its purpose. 
In Jessie own words: 

"Books in My Handbag is delighted to present the handbags of authors and their books. This celebration of authors’ work has been a great success, with an astonishing over 200 bags already in the gallery.
Every single composition sets the scene and tells a story.  There are themes such as mystery, escapism, adventure and romance.  The images demonstrate the fact that authors are fun story-tellers who absolutely adore a creative challenge!"   

So, I confess, I took photos of my two novels in my handbag 
 



and then contacted Jessie to ask if she would be interested in posting them on her Handbag Gallery. 

Guess what? She did! 

If you don't believe me - check it out and while you're there, click on the link of my novels or any other... There are quite a number of them. I'm positive you're going to find something that you like. 

Oh and just one little bit of information for you:
If you are a NetGalley member, Caught Between Two Worlds is on a request there, for reading and reviewing and liking its cover.
Thank you!

A little about Suzie - who doesn't know her already (borrowed from her blog page) :
