Have you noticed that sometimes following your instincts can lead you further away from your dreams? The journey from a story idea to a hardback Christmas Children’s Picturebook has taken almost a year to the day. And today, the day before the official publication date, Kerry and I have withdrawn from signing our contract with the publishers. No book this year. No readings in local bookshops during the run-up to Christmas.  Our dreams are delayed, not shattered. Sad though I am, my overwhelming feeling is of relief.

By taking this action, the need for perfection, pride and peace of mind are returned to us. We know that our book will be one that we can be entirely proud of and will be affordable and hopefully treasured by a greater number of readers.

It is said that happiness is not an absence of problems, but the determination to deal with them. I am happy today … and wiser.
