A Dejlige Days book?

CIMG6662They say that everyone has a book in them, which is probably true but whether it is any good is another matter. I have been working on a book about my expat experiences for the best part of four years. It started as more of a how to guide but I am inspired, by other successful bloggers turned authors and also by the reaction from readers here to my more personal posts, to make it a bit more of a personal journey but also a resource to help others either thinking of relocating or in the process. In response to one reader who asked when was I ever not positive, he will have an enlightening moment in the chapters about relocation to Berlin!

This book is cursed but I am sticking with it. Every time I get the draft out to work on or even start thinking about it, something happens that pushes it back. My son went down with chicken pox, I fell ill with a serious chest infection and more recently I started thinking about it again in January and regular readers will know what happened then!  But the sun is out and I am feeling more normal so I have decided to tempt fate and start work on it again. It is at a stage where I either put up or shut up.

I flatter myself thinking that people will want to read it but I am this far down the line that it seems a waste not to do something with it. If you think you might possibly be interested in it you can sign up here to be the first to hear more news. I am still thinking how to publish it but I guess a first proper draft is the way forward.

Now this is posted I can’t back out now, can I?!


  1. Yes, do it! I’ve been working on three books (a novel, a cook book and, of course, a book about museums) for the better part of ten years and will probably never finish any of them…

  2. Hahaha, there’s nothing like a blog post to make you feel committed to something 😉 I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you can work on your draft this time without any serious mishaps!
