    Hi Everyone,

    Oh my goodness.
    I just couldn't wait to share my good news with you all.

    I got an e mail back from the Publisher that I sent my story "An Enchanted Garden" to for their perusal.
    I received an e mail back yesterday and they want to publish it. They think thatit would be an excellent book, and that it would be better to make it a book than to just leave it as a poem.

    I cannot believe it. I am an author, and soon to be a published author. It's all thanks to your Website Hubpages because if I had not joined, I would never have known that I could write poetry or even have the ability to write a book.
    Thanks once again "Hubpages", you made this happen for me and I will never forget that. Not to mention all the support from my followers, some of which have become very good dear friends.
    I will keep you all informed as things progress.

    By for Now

    Thank you so much to all of you.
    I have spoken to and met Publishers.I have also been in touch with the illustrator in U.K. by Skype.

    I have also seen some of her work which looks really great.
    I have been told that the book will be launched just before Easter. They close over Christmas break and reopen middle of January.

    It seemed more real when I was talking with the illustrator.
    I am so excited guys.I will be in touch again soon.

    Will talk again soon.God Bless of of you and thanks also for your ongoing support and confidence in me. It means a lot even more than you know.

    Bye for now
