An advance copy of Joe’s Fruit Shop and Milk Bar arrived on my doorstep today… It is quite incredible to hold the book in my hands, flick through the pages and smell the scent of the paper. I have known since I was teenager that this was a book I one day hoped to write so in essence it’s been 25 years in the making! I also received some posters like the ones that will appear in bookshops, which makes it all feel that bit more real. Only three weeks until Joe’s Fruit Shop and Milk Bar will be on bookshop shelves!

How exciting! I love that new book smell!
Thank you! Me too (and old books too!)
I will look out for it.
Much appreciated, Debra!
That must be such a buzz to experience! Well done. Love your artwork, really tells a story in itself.
Thank you!! Much appreciated! To be honest it is still sinking in. x
