Hi all wonderful readers!

By now you should all have received your copy of my novel Life Happens. I can’t thank you enough for supporting my book, and I really hope you will enjoy it:) If you have a minute to spare, please rate it/give a short review on Amazon or Goodreads. Both positive and negative feedback is welcome, it will help future readers to decide wether or not to give it a shot.

My aim is to collect money for Irish Cancer Society, and every new copy sold will support that cause.

Wish you all a nice evening.

Love,

Caroline

Hey guys,

The novel Life Happens is now out for preorders on amazon.com and it’s all thanks to your amazing support! Barnes & Noble Inc also bought their first copy today.

The publication date is still Jan 10th, 2017 and that is also the date you will receive your very own copy.  I can’t tell you how excited I am, I really hope you will enjoy reading it. I feel grateful to all of you, thank you for believing in me.

Yours,

Caroline


Hi all,

First of all I want to thank you for your patience. I know you are waiting for my debut novel "Life Happens" and that it’s been a long wait. The script was done months ago and since then it’s been going through mandatory and often lengthy editing processes. It is now finished and ready to go to print, but due to reorganization the publisher pushed the publication date till Tuesday, January 10, 2017. 

So I guess we have to wait a while longer...I wish there was something I could do about it but unfortunately it’s out of my control. Good news is that you don’t have to wish for books for Christmas since this one will keep you busy all of January! :)

Again, thanks for your support and understanding.

Hi everyone,

Long time no see;) Things have been progressing well, even though the process of publishing a book has been much lengthier than I first thought it would be. Nevertheless I have a cool update that I would like to share with you ...drumroll...

...We now have a publication date! Life Happens will be published October 18th 2016 - stay tuned!

And as always, this project would never have been possible without the support from all of you, and I am so grateful!


All the best,

Caroline

Hi everyone! 

First of all, I would like to thank you for your patience. I have learnt that publishing a book is a long process, and even if the manuscript is ready  there will be a while longer before you have the book in your hands. In the meantime you can check out my brand new blog where I put some thoughts that didn’t make it to the book. 

You will find it here: www.life-happens.live

The cover for Life Happens is also ready! You can see it in the blog as well...

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Hi everybody, I hope you are well! 

I thought it would be nice with an update regarding my novel "Life Happened". I have learnt that writing a book is a long, challenging but fun process! 

A while back I received valuable feedback from my developmental editor. According to her comments, I have rewritten parts of the book. Today I sent her the new version which means we are one step closer to publication! When the script is perfected, it will go through copyedit, proofread and cold read - which are performed by 3 different editors. When all the steps in the process are completed you will receive your copy! There is no release date yet, but probably after the summer.

Right now I am looking for someone that can design the book cover, so if you know anyone - please send them my way!

Love,

Caroline

Caroline!! I see today is your last day and you’ve reached over 250 preorders! I would really like to recommend your book on my Fiction syndicate here on Inkshares. It’s called ’For the love of Fiction" and you should be able to locate it by going to my profile! It’s a new syndicate so I really need to rally some followers so I can start promoting inkshares books like yours! Email if you would like!! kbdavis14

Greetings all my wonderful readers, supporters and friends,

I thought it would be nice to give you an update of my book.

The raw script to Life Happened has been done for a while, but in a writing process that means you are far from finished. To give you an example Hemingway rewrote one of his masterpieces 50 times...Don’t be scared, that’s not what I’m aiming for! I do however want you to get an interesting read in the end. That said, I have let two dear friends read the script and give their feedback. Since then I have been tweaking the text according to their great ideas. It’ almost  done, which means the text will be sent to a professional content editor that will not be changing anything, but give me another round of feedback in regards to structure and characters. Once that is all done, a copyeditor come into the picture, checking the grammar.

So, it’s rather a lengthy back-and forth process, and at the same time developing and fun! I hope to be able to send you a newly printed copy in time for the summer, and preferably earlier. Until then, I thank each and every one of you for your wonderful support!

Love,

Caroline

Merry Christmas!
The day I didn´t think would come has arrived - thanks to all your fantastic support my book will be published!!! It´s the best Christmas gift ever and I would like to send my deep gratitude to every single one of you. Now the editing starts, and I will keep you posted on the development and when you can expect to hold the actual book in your hands.

I wish you a day filled with love, laughter, and of course, christmas cookies!

Warm hugs,

Caroline

Hi everybody, 

hope you are starting to feel the Christmas Spirit all around you!

Short update: Yesterday Irish Cancer Society posted on my behalf on their Facebook page. 25% of the revenue will go to their research programme and they will help promoting it once it is published. I´m still deciding on a possible other organization to give to, suggestions are welcome. I´m now on 231 sold copies(it´s a bit time lag on the inkshares page but I get a report with the latest numbers), much thanks to your support! 

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, and hope you get some valuble time to relax and enjoy the company of your loved ones. 

Take care of each other,

Caroline
