Hi Nest (?)
You wrote: “I am aiming for the sort of book you buy at the airport for a holiday read. I found I am really enjoying doing it.”
And that’s what’s it’s all about – surely?!
I was very nervous and embarrassed when I first asked people to read my book in (near-final draft) – but then got such an incredible boost from their enjoyment! One reader just kept sending me happy emojis as she whizzed through the chapters. Made my day – and made me realise that just writing is not enough; I really want to be published.
