Bee happy ...... write a book

A little while ago I wrote a book about moving house and the renovations which were needed.

The book is soon going to be available on Amazon.

I wanted to thank the lovely Tam and her husband Carl from

who kindly turned the ideas in my head to the stunning front and back cover you can see below, they are so kind, creative and talented.

Front cover

Back cover without blurb

This diary is a humorous account of one couples experience in buying and selling a house in a credit crunch. Sharing their adventure is their half blind cat and disabled dog. Nicknaming the different houses and people linked to the properties help them to remember which houses they have viewed. They manage to eventually buy a house and renovate it with the help of various tradesmen before they move in. This hilarious diary will keep you entertained from start to finish.
My book has been on line for several months and below are some of the comments I have received from my readers.

"This book is full of those moments and observations that make you shake your head, or laugh out loud. For anyone who has dabbled in buying or selling a home, this is a must read"
"As a former property lawyer, I don't need to read beyond the pitch to know this will be hilarious!"
"This is an accurate detailed and very funny look at moving house – but oh so true!"
"This is a fun book to read!"
"I loved the story of throwing the ball to Nephew. Your book was a delightful read and I thank you for writing it"
“This is a great read, and deals with a topic that touches us all- moving! The way you engage the reader with humour is wonderful! It really made me laugh!!”
“Before starting to read thought what a strange thing to write about, finished book one o-clock in the morning reading all chapters of this amazing story of a terrible year of stress selling and buying houses. Brought back some not so good memories of my own. This book is so well done, I had many laughs through the search for the right home.”

  24. Hi Deborah!
    First, congratulations with your book! This topic is right up my street since we moved a lot.
    I don't know why I didn't received your posts anymore, I had trouble with more blogs suddenly dissapearing from my list, but I clicked again so not to miss yours. Did you changed your look? I had to double look at the photo, you used to have a blue garden house right? Anyway, thanks for your comment and good luck with the sales!

  25. Couldn't find a way to contact you so maybe you can go to my selling blog (link on insidenanashead blog) and email me through there. I am in the process of writing a book also and could use some pointers from you if you don't mind.
    Your book sounds like something I would enjoy reading and will have to see if I can find a copy soon
    Thank you for following my blog and I am now a follower of yours and putting a link to your blog on my list :)

  26. Hi Deb,
