The proof finally arrived today, just before 2 p.m. and I bet everyone in the neighbourhood heard me yelling from excitement and joy.u00c2u00a0u00c2u00a0 I wanted to kiss the courier and literally ripped open the package and quickly went through it to see that everything was in order.u00c2u00a0u00c2u00a0 There was a lot of emotion, hugging and kissing among the family and a skype-announcement to my son in the U.K.

I took this picture as soon as the book arrived. I will add some more pictures of the interior of book during the weekend, as I did not have time to do this today and tomorrow we shall be going out of town.

After lunch, I lied down and went through the book thoroughly to see ifu00c2u00a0 everything was okay.u00c2u00a0 You cannot imagine my agony until I reached the final page and everything way okay.u00c2u00a0u00c2u00a0u00c2u00a0 I was hugging and kissing the book as if it was my newly born baby.

After approving the proof , the e-store has been activated and apart from adding colour to the background, I did not find time to customize it yet as I’ve spent the past three hours calling Createspace, 3 or 4 times to solve various matters.u00c2u00a0 For those of you who don’t know Createspace, it is a subsidiary of Amazon.

Even now as I am writing these few lines, I am still ecstatic with joy and smiling, as I now now know that all my hard work has paid off.

It’s past 10 p.m. and I haven’t had dinner yetu00c2u00a0 but I wanted to make the announcement tonight, as tomorrow we will be out of town.

At the back of the book there is an acknowledgement page where I thank everyone who helped me one way or another to make the book a reality. u00c2u00a0u00c2u00a0 My thanks go to my family who were there for me helping each one in their way but mostly I want to thank my husand who helped me as much as he could, doing all the house chores and even cooking most of the time.u00c2u00a0 He was not aware that there was an acknowledgement page as he u00c2u00a0does not know English well, so he did not read the book.u00c2u00a0 When I translated to him what I wrote, I was very emotional and we cried together. u00c2u00a0 My sisters, who are in Cyprus, helped me with recipes and information. u00c2u00a0 My friend Soma, whose lovely photo is on the cover of the book and finally I thank all the loyal readers and followers of Kopiaste, who will be reading that last page.

Thank you again for all your support.

Hugs to you all,

Authors, Share Your Book with Millions of Readers
