I have been a Member for Twelve Months

    To All Staff Members and My Followers,

    The first thing that I would like to say is Thank you vey much to the all HubPages Staff. I have been a member with you now for Twelve months and I just want to say that it has made such a big difference to my life. I have so much to thank all of  you for. Particularly, your guidance and help along the way with different aspects of Hubpages.

    As well as this, I would not have realised I had a talent for not only writing after starting, but also for Poetry. On the advice of several people, I decided to branch out with my poetry and register with a couple of Poetry Websites. This has proved to be a very positive step for me also.

    I have written almost sixty poems now, and have had very good feedback from them. My dream before I became too sick, was to eventually write enough poems to have a book of my poems published. Well, I have surprised even myself I recently wrote a poem called "An Enchanted Garden",which is a fairy story. It was suggested to me to think about turning it into a book also.

    I liked the idea so much, that I have gone one step furher. I have contacted a local Publishing Service about publishing this poem as a litle book for small children. In the meantime, another idea for a book came to my mind. I have also now written another book about 'Fairyland". I don't wamt to give too much away, but I will keep you up to date as this progresses,hopefully in a positive direction.

    I also want to say a very big thankyou to all of my Hubpages Followers who have supported me through good and bad times while I have been a Member. I have made very definite bonds with certain people, you know yourselves who you are. You have all in your own way given me the strength and determination, to keep going with my writing, when I felt like throwing in the towel sometimes.
    This has been a very difficult year, with regard to my health problems, and if it wasn't for some of the advice that was given to me by some of my closest friends here on HP's, I may not have made it this far.
    So, again THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU, STAFF AND FOLLOWERS, I am so very pleased I have met you all and so grateful for your invaluable ongoing friendship and support.
    God Bless To All of You Love Beautybabe

        Hi Patty,

        I apologise for not replying sooner but I have spent a lot of time in hospital . IMy book is due to come out in early Easter and I have almost completed my second book which is called "The little pig that ran away to save it's bacon, a lot different obviously to the first one.

        I have been doing a little bit of writing on this as I am able and I am happy to say now that it is almost finished. I have been told by the Publishing Co. that is dpublishing "The Enchanted Garden" that they want to publish this as well because they think it has great possibilities also.I am so excited that I have written not only one but now my second is almost on the it's way to the printers.

        I will try and keep you all up to date as I am able. You know the thing that got their attention with the second book was the title and then when I gave her the first few pages of a draft she just said "I love it" and "You have the most amazing imaginagtion of anyone I have met in a long time".
        You can imagine the surprise I got from that comment Patty.

        I hope all is well with you and I will write again soon
        Love Beautybabe    Pamx

    I'VE DONE IT EVERYONE
    .
    I Have The Best News

    I have completed both books, that's right. I have written two Children's Story Books and they are both going to be published.

    The First one "The Enchanted Garden" will be on the shelves around Easter.

    The Second One is called "The Little Pig That Ran Away To Save It's Bacon".

    It's a great story my Publisher has told me, so wish me luck everyone. It won't be long before it's on the shelves either.
    When I know for sure I will let you know when it will be out.

    I hope you are all in good health and all doing great with your hubs.

    Take care all of you       Love  Beautybabe
