Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 257 – Excitement


“I am excited about what the future will bring, and I think the best is yet to come.”

Alonzo Mourning

Thank you so much Spidey for finding a quote so perfect for how I am feeling right now.

Actually, my feelings are a mixture of nerves and excitement.

It is literally a WEEK until my book baby is officially published!


How has nearly twenty years passed, since I first had the idea for this book and started to write words on a screen?

Did I ever think that it would really be a ‘thing’?


I never thought I would be a blogger, with an award winning blog, either. I just excitedly posted all manner of stuff, and people seemed to like it, then the best thing happened. I got recognised for it!

The same goes for my work. I always put 110% into my job, and the excitement I have for working with my class is palpable. And the rewards are huge, at the end of every year. Not financially. Everyone knows a teacher’s salary is rubbish. But emotionally. Seeing a child read a word for the first time, unaided, or crack the code of how to add a number to another, independently. Priceless moments. Watching them develop into these amazing little human beings with empathy, and seeing their imaginations grow, because we have helped them to learn to access the tools they need to succeed in life. No better feeling.

And similarly, I have an excitement for my book baby. Nervous excitement, as I said. You never know what might happen, but the feedback I have received from beta readers, and some advance readers has been enough for the excited butterflies to be going crazy in my stomach for the last few weeks! I can only hope that other readers feel the same about my story, too!

Who knows?

So… tell me, what excites you at the moment?

And… have you preordered, yet? The Kindle version is available to preorder, or the paperback will be out from the 9th Feb! Check out the blog tour that starts tomorrow!

And you can pre-order here.

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week! ❤
