Weekend Update

Last Thursday and Friday I felt like I was getting a cold, so I spent most of the weekend in bed, getting a lot of rest and drinking lots of herbal tea to boost my immunity system. So now I'm feeling energetic and ready to tackle this week. Ginger rocks!

I did make the time to meet with Jenny Nijenhuis, the artist who's illustrating my children's book. We worked out some of the major issues regarding the illustration and design of the book and finalised the contract. Yay! So glad that part is almost done!

Talking to Jenny reminded me of how much work I still need to do to market the book. But I have time, and will do the tasks bit by bit until the book is launched. Exciting times, me thinks!

That is exciting! (The story bit, not the cold bit.)

A friend of mine who spent some time in the US told me that if you feel like you are getting a cold you should take zinc tablets, because zinc coats the viruses and stops them from infecting you? Or something. Anyway, I tried it and it seems to work. Apparently Americans do this all the time.

Thanks for the advice Po. With winter coming soon, I'll look into that.

Oh dear, winter is definitely on it's way. Had Husband in bed the whole weekend hacking and coughing. Hope your cold is better.

And the illustrations and progress on your children's book sounds great. Very exciting! I'm getting excited too - my cover is out on my blog today! Not sure if I hate ot or love it, but the ball is now rolling on and on...
