I'm writing a book about what it's like to be diagnosed with breast cancer at 26 years old, when you're already living with depression.

Well. I never thought this day would come...

But today 500 copies of my book Life, Lemons and Melons arrived on my doorstep in 16 boxes, delivered by two very perturbed UPS drivers. WE DID IT!

Now admittedly, things are running a bit ahead of schedule in the delivery department, so while I'll be getting these guys to you ASAP, you might have to wait a little bit longer than I hoped because I'm running a bit behind in the admin department. Basically, I thought I had until 28th January (my big sister's birthday) to get my shit together before they were delivered. But then I got an email this morning to say they were ON THE WAY. This seems to be a theme for this project. I'll explain that another time. I haven't even ordered any envelopes to send them out to you yet.

Also, I'm just one gal sending these out, so your continued patience is very, very valued. Please know, I'm working on getting these books to you as soon as I can. Because I live in a very small flat.

If you can think of any influencers/writers/general people with big audiences who might be interested in getting their hands on a press copy, please do tag them in my social posts and I'll be sure to get in touch.

Oh - and I know I said 26th February as the save the date for the launch, but it's actually more likely to be 25th February. This is mainly so my parents can come to be honest. Official invites with dates I can't get out of coming soon.

When your book arrives, please share it on social media. If you like it, please shout about it from the rooftops so that there can hopefully be a second print run. If you hate it, pretend the whole thing never happened.I guess my book will see your letterboxes soon.

Continually grateful. 

You rock.
