I’m pleased to show you some early illustrations of The Girl Who Wanted to Catch a Cloud in a Marmalade Jar. I find Duncan’s illustrations really awesome and quirky. To my surprise, he made them look more interesting than I imagined them. I’m not exaggerating when I say my book would be nothing without them.
I’ve been interviewed a couple of times for online magazines, students writing their thesis and entrepreneurs starting new projects. They keep asking me the same question – why is it so attractive for people to be a blogger? Why should I care to be one? Should I try to become one too? It looks like bloggers get to live a cool, fun and happy life. But is that really true?
I am pleased to share some great news with you today. I’d like to introduce you to the illustrator of my children’s book, Duncan Beedie. If the name isn’t that new to you, I wouldn’t be surprised. Duncan doesn’t only do illustration, but he’s also published two amazing children’s books.
When we moved to London two years ago, I soon realised that our neighbourhood is somewhat different from the rest of London. It seemed to me like Lambeth is a lifeless place for residents to sleep at night, go to work in the morning, and return in the evening only to cook dinner and go to sleep […]
but my schedule was a little heavy with work on my book than any other books. And so I started a new challenge for myself: I started reading just 30 minutes a day. Every time during the day or before the sleep I would put an alarm on my iPhone and got lost between the pages. Here are the five things that happened after I did this for longer than 2 weeks.
For many of us holidays are still here but my upcoming children’s book The Girl Who Wanted To Catch A Cloud In A Marmalade Jar is moving ahead. Just before the Christmas, I handed the manuscript to my editor and signed a contract with an illustrator.
At the end of last year I was observing my shopping habits and realised that whenever I shop, I shop for one main thing: comfort. Whether it’s a cookbook or an eyeshadow, it’s still the same. Here’s what’s making me comfortable this month.
The end of the year is just around the corner, can you believe it? I think 2016 was the fastest year in the history – I experienced many bad moments as well as great ones. You can’t really separate those two, because without each other I wouldn’t have a breakthrough. I hope to inspire you with some of them to have one for yourself in 2017.
