It’s finally the release day for Home Life Around the World! Happy Book Birthday!
The process of making a dream come true has involved if not blood, at least sweat and toil and it has been amazing! Every step of the way has involved exploring unknown paths and at times the learning curve has been steep. But with diligence, single minded focus and sheer stubbornness I got there at the end and result is so rewarding.
What started at the end of 2014 as merely an idea, to explore what a home really means to people, actually involved selling my own home to realise funds to make the project feasible. Then followed a period of thorough research and the first tentative outreach to persons previously unknown, living on every continent. Every place I travelled to, was a place I never before have visited. Everyone I met was a stranger at first. Also, it meant getting the necessary equipment needed to complete the project. As well as acquiring the knowledge how to use these new tools. It has also meant that I have had to learn about a completely new sector of business besides writing – the book industry.
The feeling to be able to actually hold a physical copy of my very first book in my hands three and a half years later is unbelievable sweet! Of course none of this would have been possible without the fantastic people who opened the doors of their homes to a complete stranger, namely me. People who put their trust in me. All of them who I now view as friends. I thank each and every one of you for your generosity, patience and kindness from the bottom of my heart.
I also thank everyone who has been supportive during the process and everyone who has written beautiful reviews. Your reviews do so much to help with a book’s success.
If you love Home Life Around the World as much as I do, please consider helping to spread the word on social media. That would be the most wonderful birthday gift and one that I would appreciate immensely.
