The Beginning: My very first editorial in The Fever – a local publication. I got about fifteen copies, and wondered why I didn’t blow wave my hair…

The Hilltop editorial. Yes, halfway through they started referring to me as Michelle. Nothing makes you realise you have a long way to go like people forgetting your name. Which is on the book I am holding, yes.

THE REVIEW!!! Debbie Reynolds loved my book and wrote this awesome review, which featured in The Good Life (entertainment section of The Mercury). I was blown away, it made me chest-bump myself in the mirror. Did I mention Debbie Reynolds loved my book?

Another review in The Crest Magazine. This was the first time I saw my book on GLOSSY paper. You can imagine my excitement. Oh, and Hayley Dennyson loved my book. Just in case you were wondering.

My SAfm interview was nerve-wracking to say the least. I sat on the floor in my bedroom, with a glass of water (in case I started coughing uncontrollably – because that can happen, right?) and a piece of white paper, on which were written in very big, black letters: DO NOT SAY F*#&. When I’m nervous, my four letter words pour out of me “like lava” 🙂 Thankfully, I managed to keep it tidy, but my opening “Hey Nancy!” is so awful it makes me want to shoot myself cringe every time I hear it.

THE FANS: My book launch was a great success, and the support was overwhelming and a little bit humbling. Sadly, I don’t have many photographs, but someone very kindly sent me these:
