My book manuscript is FINISHED...huurrrraaahhh!


How are you and what have you been doing with yourselves? I have been busy finishing my book and yes I've done it! It's just shy of 40,000 words and I'm delighted with it.

I wish to personally thank all of you who have supported me on this project. You have been (and still are) amazing. Much love and appreciation to you all.

I have a double page spread going into the Yorkshire Post in February. This will provide you with some of the 'back' story to my book and you will be able to have a sneaky look at some of the fantastic photographs taken for inclusion in my book. They are truly beautiful.

I am waiting to hear from a publishing house to see if they are interested. It's a bit of a waiting game to be honest but I am so excited about what lay ahead. The feedback I have received so far has been positive and very enthusiastic.

I've a busy day tomorrow so I will bid you farewell for now. Warmest wishes Viv xxx

I'm almost finished my book manuscript 34,334 words written. I am so excited!


I wonder what you've been doing and how life is treating you all? I have been super busy. I am 34,334 words into my book and am delighted with my progress to date.

I have seen the first draft of the 'Forward', written by my former colleague, a wonderful Consultant Psychiatrist. I am more than happy with the 'Forward' so far.

My deadline is January 2011 and I'm well on target. I have a PR meeting in a couple of weeks time and I am excited about the plans for the book. Look out I come!

I am adding two sections at the end of the book; resources for parents and resources for clinicians. If any of you have useful book titles or website addresses to add I would be happy to include them in this section.

Much warmth and huge appreciation to those of you who offer continual support, thank you all.

Warmest Viv

Happy New Year! 27,000 words in my book..I am almost finished!!


Happy New Year to you all. All is well here. As always I am super busy with my book manuscript, work and being a mum. The manuscript has some of the photos in. They look great; thank you Emma!

I have given some of the manuscript to Cat (the lovely mum) I worked with for the book. Cat I am so pleased both you and Darren like it. You and Seb have been a joy to work with and I am truly appreciative.

I suppose I could sit here for a while chatting to you about lots of things but I feel I ought to get on with the manuscript as my January deadline is almost here...yes I know it is already January but I never said the beginning of January 2011, did I?!!

Warmest wishes to you all for now
