    I am finally there my dear fellow hubbers.
    My first book "An Enchanted Garden is PUBLISHED.

    My Publisher has just rung to tell me and if you Google the name of the Book you will see it registered in the "National Library".

    The second one "The Little Pig That Ran Away To Save It's Bacon" will be out shortly as well.  It is a bigger book so it is taking a little longer.

    I am so excited. I am a Published at long last and if I hadn't registered with Hubpages and met all you wonderful supporters, I still would be very ill Pam and probably feeling sorry for myself. Thanks to this Website, all of that has changed except of course I would still have my disease.

    Now, I have something else in my life that is helping to take my mind of the illness, my writing. Thanks a lot HP's.

    I hope you are all doing well with your HEALTH AND YOUR HUBS.

    LOVE BEAUTYBABE.

      That is wonderful and so amazing considering all the authors out there who want to be published.  You must be the creme of the crop.

        Thanks Pam,
        I don't know about being "creme of the crop" but it is exciting to feel like I have something to offer for children to read. I have four more books I have written which will also be published as well. I will be spreading them out otherwise it gets a bit expensive. I want to see how my first couple go selling wise first.

        After that I will have a better idea of what to do.

        Bye for now

            Hi rebekah,
            Thanks for you support and friendship while I have been a member of hubpages.  I owe a lot to HP's because if it wasn't for this website and all of my fellow hubbers, I would probably be lying at home waiting to die from this disease I have. I really appreciate your lovely complements.

            Now all I want to do is see my books published. I have actually written seven in all and they will all be published at some time in the future. I can't believe how things are changing in my life, especially where the book writing is concerned.
            Good luck with everything

            God Bless

      Hi Ernest,

      Thanks for the congrats.
      I will keep you up to date on how things go with my first book.
      I have another one as well coming out soon. I also have three others that they are also going to publish for me. I can't believe how things have turned around for me. I still have my disease though.

      I also have a website it's called "Books Through The Eyes of A Child". It is still in its infancy stages. It is worth looking at if you want to.
      I hope you are your family are well.

        Hi, beautybabe (Pam).  It was no trouble, and like so many others on here, I found seeing some good news of a fellow Hubber something to be enjoy.  My own back-burner projects somehow seem permanently glued to those back burners, so I can only imagine how pleased you must be to have finished your books and gotten them to where you are now.   smile  (And, of course, knowing how serious your health problems are, I can't help but see your accomplishment as a particularly inspiring one.)  Even without the health challenges, though - a nice accomplishment.  smile

      BEAUTYBABEposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Hi again,

      My Publisher told me it is harder to write children's books than adult type ones, It looks as though you agree with that also.I didn't find it too hard.
      I thought maybe I had fluked it the first time, but then when I presented her with the others she told me "you have the most amazing imagination of anyone I have met in a long long time.

      I thought she was pulling my leg but she was serious. What a surprise!
      Anyway we shall see if they are any good when we see if anyone buys them.
      Take care and continue writing great hubs and poems.
      God Bless You and your family,

      Love Beautybabe (Pam)

      Hi Habee,
      It's good talking with you again.
      I am so amazed with the amount of people or should I say fellow hubbbers that have left messages of congratulations since I posted my news of the publishing of my first book.

      Even people that I don't even know have left messages for me. I have a lot of people wishing me well and I feel so fortunate to have such a supportive group of fellow hubbers.

      Many of whom, such as yourself, I have had the pleasure of knowing and chatting to since I joined in January, 2010. I have read a lot of different hubs
      and learned as well about so many interesting things.

      I will keep you posted with future developments.
      God  Bless  and Take Care My Friend.

      BEAUTYBABEposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Thank you so much for your message of congratulations.

      Yes, it is good to put some positive feedback in the forums because I have noticed also that things can get a bit heated between a couple of the hubbers. Then you find that everyone has an opinion and it can get very unpleasant at times.

      But,most of the time I found that it was all very friendly and if someone had a problem that most people were more than happy to lend a hand.

      I am so excited about my books and I am keen to see how my first one sells in the shops because my publisher told me that the sale of your first book as a new Author is very important. She said if the parents like the first book and so do the kids, they will usually buy the next one by that Author to see if it is just as goodor not.           

      Hopefully, they will like my first two "An Enchanted Garden"and"The LittlePig That Ran Away To Save His Bacon. My Publisher thinks both  of these will sell well, I hope she is right. I will remain optimistic until I know for sure.

      Take Care Richard

      Hi Rosie,
      Thank you for the congratulations message.
      It was very nice of you to do that. Yes, I am excited about publishing my first book and I hope that it sells well. I was told by my publisher that I have an amazing imagination and that is what is needed when writing books for children. 

      I can't wait now for the next one to be published. It is so exciting,but I am waiting to see how the sales of the first book go before I start jumpingup and down, but I am trying at the same time to be optimistic.
      I am imagining parents reading my stories to their children and their children laughing at the funny parts and at the same time learning new things as well.

      I have enjoyed reading hubs on Hubpages because there is always something new and exciting to read that someone has put a lot of time into to make it interesting enough to keep people reading from beginning to the end.
      .
      I haven't been very well. My disease is affecting my diaphragm now and this is causing problems with my breathing.I have just spent 12 days in hospital with a bad infection in my larynx, trachea and down to my lungs.
      But after all the treatment, it still hasn't completely gone away.
