Just a quick update to let you know two, totally unrelated things. The first is that I just ate my first ever chilli infused chocolate and it was amazing… in a very good way.
I was given a late Christmas present of boutique chocolates and didn’t know what I was eating until I started to feel the heat. As I’m not very adventurous when it comes to chocolate, it’s probably just as well the chilli chocolate snuck up on me. But it really was delicious.
The second delicious thing I have to report is that I’ve just seen the first draft of the Vokhtah book cover, and I’m over the moon! The designer is a family friend who moonlights as an architect. Personally I think his talents are being wasted on buildings!
Anyway, I can’t show you the pic yet because it’s part of my birthday present to me, and I don’t want to spoil the surprise. But watch this space because barring any major stuff ups on my part, Vokhtah will go live as an ebook on January 12th, Australian daylight savings time! [For you northern hemisphere types that should be sometime on the 11th].
I’ll be self-publishing [on Amazon], and as I’ve never done anything like this before, I’m desperately hoping I’m geek enough to pull it off without a hitch. You’ll know if I did… and you’ll definitely know if I didn’t! I may ask for donations of tissues.
So, that’s my news for tonight. I’ve been trying to stay cool, calm and serene – OHM – but my good intentions just went flying out the window. Soooooooo excited!
Goodnight me lovelies,
