Celebrate the small things!



Friday is time to  Celebrate the small things. Hosted by Viklit at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author.  Head over to find out more and sign up!

Not much to report on the writing front this week for me I'm afraid so I am taking the opportunity to celebrate somone else's achievements. Hope that's ok, Vikki.

Some of you may have already heard the story of a very brave lady called Bridget Zinn. Sadly Bridget died from cancer in May 2011 aged only 33 years. Bridget's dream was to be  a published author and I am pleased to announce that dream is about to become true as her YA novel, Poison is published next week by Hyperion. Check out the full story HERE. There are some exciting things happening.

So this week I am celebrating Bridget's accomplishment with her family and friends.
How about joining in and helping to spread the word.
