Happy new week everyone. I hope you’re all safe and well. I’ve been organising my work space and trying to keep up with publishing deadlines in the last two weeks. I have a contemporary romance book out on the 19th February this year and another launching in May with my new American publisher. It’s exciting to see how different people work. My new publisher has had this book for a while now, so I’m literally hopping around with excitement to see it’s finally getting closer to publication. They have designed a cute cover and it’s ready for the launch.
I’ve also been tidying out my little office and now have photos of all of my book covers, on the walls. This makes it much easier than lugging my big computer downstairs when I host seminars. Now I can stay in my studio and not worry about dropping my computer on the way, as I’m so clumsy! I think I literally trip over my own feet. My studio was a bit messy before and the bookshelves were stuffed with files. Now they have beautiful books on them.
Having the book covers on the walls makes me feel proud when I walk into my office about what I’ve achieved, but also spurs me on to keep writing more books. I think we forget to pat ourselves on the back sometimes and are too ready to put ourselves down, so a visual reminder of things we are proud of, can lift the mood and remind us we can find our way.
Have a brilliant week everyone and why don’t you make your own uplifting mood wall! Let me know how you get on.

You sound really organised Lizzie. Always wanted my book covers framed and put in the office!
I’m what I refer to, as an organised mess, Jo! Lol:) I just printed these from my home printer and got frames from a local shop for a few pounds. I can’t wait to see a photo when you put your covers up.
I love the idea of putting the book covers on the wall. I have awards on the wall, but not the book covers. Thanks for the idea, Lizzie!
I bet the awards bring you a lot of joy too! Congratulations on all of your successes Jan.
The covers are a great pick-me-up idea 😉
Thanks Sue! x
