I read about the most brilliant tip this week and I can’t wait to share. My smart and talented writer-friend Tara gave me these gorgeous flowers to celebrate my publication day for Love Lie Repeat.
Pink roses, like the roses on my book cover — and I reflexed them. Aren’t they pretty?
“Reflexing” is a technique where you gently flip some petals outward. It works beautifully when roses are a few days old.
It breathes new life into them and makes them look exotic.
Reflexing roses makes me think this: how many other things are so very simple to do, but we just don’t know about them?
Let’s be curious.
Let’s keep learning.
Oh, this week was so much fun. I need to thank you all for your support. For pre-ordering books (they should be shipping now), for buying books in shops, for the notes and comments and photos…thank you.
You mean more to me than you know.
Lots of readers are saying they stayed up too late to finish Love Lie Repeat, that it sprints to the finish and that they love the Margaret Atwood-esque feel.
I say this: thank you. It’s been a dream come true.
(And this gift for me on International Women’s Day — my son’s friend texted him and said…Did your MUM write Love Lie Repeat?? My girlfriend stayed up until 2am to finish it.” Nothing better than being an example of what’s possible for our kids. Right? Right.)
Enjoy your weekend, and be fun to live with!
Love, Catherine x
