The Magic of Christmas eBook

It’s here!

The Magic of Christmas eBook – my debut novel –  is available to download from the Amazon Kindle store! Nearly a year after I began work on it for NaNoWriMo2015, and just days before I start the 2016 competition, I have got the book onto Amazon in time for Christmas!

It has been a long process, one that has been incredibly fun, stressful, nervous, exciting, strengthening, inspiring and, at times, completely demoralising. But within that array of mixed adjectives, it is the positive ones that now are shining through. The long, dark nights of writing last November are a distant memory (although sure to be revisited soon as I enter NaNo spirit once more). The thoughts of ‘why am I bothering with this?’ have been pushed to the back of my head. The feeling of dissatisfaction with having a completed but hidden-to-the-world manuscript were banished in a click of the ‘publish’ button on Amazon. Now there is a copy of The Magic of Christmas eBook sitting up there on Amazon, for anyone to download!

Writing is a turbulent journey. One that I am still only at very beginning of. But it can bring a truly wonderful feeling of achievement. It is a delight to know that it is that feeling I’m experiencing more than any other at the moment. It is like nothing else.

I hope you enjoy the book. Hopefully it can help build some festive cheer in the run up to Christmas. After all, isn’t that what the real magic of Christmas is about?
