I have had a fantastic few months' painting and posting! My book has really taken off and I have been over the moon with the positive feedback. Last month I won the non-fiction category of the Rubery Book Award – it came as a complete surprise and really bolstered my confidence.
Waterstones in Truro have really got behind me and have done a great window display with my actual walking boots and even my traveling easel!
I've also had articles in a few magazines, which has been very exciting, including Cornwall Today, Country Life, Country Walking and Purbeck Magazine
I have taken over a room in our house purely for the wrapping and posting of the book (2,000 books take up a lot of space). We've worked out that there are four tonnes of books in our spare room! Luckily it is on the ground floor.
In between posting I am painting and have sent new work to The Mulberry Tree Gallery and Fowey River Gallery.
Many thanks to everyone who has left a review of the book online and thank you for all your lovely emails, I really appreciate your support.
