A few days late I know but only just getting round to welcoming my little baby boy, Mackenzie Kyle Pelling. He’s the most adorable, cutest baby boy I could ever have imagined and it was love at first sight.
After being bought into the world four weeks early and pulled out by caeserean section he’s a tough little cookie and perfect in every way. He weighed 5lb 9oz and was born in the very early hours of 18th July at 3:50am.
He was allowed to stay with me in the ward at the hospital. The midwives were lovely but I couldn’t wait to get home! He doesn’t like to sleep by himself though, he’d happily sleep tucked up in mine or his dad’s arms but as soon as you put him down he realises he’s by himself and starts to whinge. And it’s too heartbreaking not to give in to him. Especially when I was in the hospital and didn’t sleep for 2 nights because of it. Still, Daniel was lovely enough to let me sleep last night and he took over with the cuddling/feeding/changing while I caught up with some rest.
So anyway, welcome to the world, Mackenzie, my perfect, special little boy! I love you with every beat of my heart xxxx
Compared to The Ghost Writer, this is in no means a short story as it is 173 pages, though not quite a novel it is still an acheivement none the less.
I have ordered my proof-read copy and once it has been approved it shall be available on Amazon and most other major online bookstores within 6-8 weeks. So, happy days basically.
I have to say a big thank you to my two proof readers, Daniel Pelling and Diana Davies who helped with any gramatical errors, spelling and other suggestions etc in order to get it ready for publication. And a big thank you to Sam Pelling for editting the photo for the front cover for me.
I’ll let you know when it has been published on Amazon.
Thanks to everyone for your support.
It is reaching that time of year again when I take part in the London Bridges Walk for Kidney Research UK. Starting at Potters Field Park, we get to trek across nine of London’s most famous bridges and to see some of the amazing sights the city has to offer. This is a charity very dear to my heart and I’m reaching out to everyone to ask if you could sponsor myself and Daniel for this very well worthy cause. The event takes place on Sunday, July 10th. Please follow the link to leave messages and make donations. http://www.kidneyresearchukevents.org/lianehoaredanielpelling
A bit about the charity and what they do:
Kidney Research UK was founded in 1961 and is the leading UK charity dedicated to funding research aimed at finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for kidney disease. We have over £10.1 million invested in research at any one time, awarding grants to doctors, nurses and researchers across the UK. We also award grants to kidney patients so that they can cope with the unexpected costs of their condition, and campaign for better patient access to renal services and are dedicated to raising awareness of kidney disease.
We operate a kidney health information service to answer the questions kidney patients inevitably have about their condition, and a range of web-based literature is available on various kidney diseases. We run joint appeals with local hospitals, to provide renal units with equipment not catered for by the NHS.
The lives of over three million people in the UK today are under threat from chronic kidney disease. This number is set to grow as the population ages, placing greater strain on the system. Currently only one in four people receive the kidney transplant they need. 90% of people, on the transplant list are waiting for a kidney – that’s around 7,000 people.
Thank you for your support.
Well while my gorgeous, lovely boyfriend Daniel Pelling was busy practicing with his awesome bell team I sat scribbling in the corner as I penned the synopsis, main character bios, plot and final twist. I’m very excited at the idea of it; now I just need to turn it into a story. Big thanx to Di Davies for the use of the shorthand notepad as it came in very handy last night…laptops?pah! Good ol’ fashioned pen and paper was all I needed and I will carry it with me everywhere as I guard the secret to The Forensic Killer with my life. I’ve already got pre-orders based on The Ghost Writer so I hope this one lives up to everyone’s expectations.
My first book has been published…how exciting! It’s available for £9.99 through www.lulu.com . I would like to thank everyone who believed in me and to my wonderful boyfriend, Daniel Pelling, who has been my knight in shining armour and my rock. This goes out to you when I say you are my world, my inspiration and everything to me. Thank you.
Anyway, here is a brief synopsis of The Ghost Writer. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. And thanks to my awesome niece, Becky Joyce, who I will employ as my editor one day! Giving my first autograph yesterday was really cool and something I could get used to (lol, thanks Kat!).
