Fold It Calm Publication Day: A Dream Realized!

Can you believe it? Fold It Calm, my labor of love, officially hit the shelves yesterday, March 2nd, 2023! The excitement of the publication day had me caught up in a whirlwind of activities – from crafting the perfect announcement for social media to balancing my regular job. Amidst all this, I woke up this morning with a sudden realization: I forgot to share this incredible milestone right here, on my beloved blog!

Yes, it’s true – I am now a published author! The sheer incredulity of that statement hasn’t quite sunk in yet. What’s even more surreal is that Fold It Calm is now available globally, reaching readers far and wide through platforms like Amazon and various other book retailers.

In these moments, it’s hard to ignore the powerful truth: dreams do come true. The overwhelming sense of gratitude I feel today is beyond words. To everyone who has been a part of this journey, thank you from the depths of my heart. This achievement is not just mine; it belongs to each one of you who believed in me and supported me along the way.

One of my favourite models from the book – the penguin! It’s holding the miniature Fold It Calm in its wing.

Fold it calm is available to purchase at Amazon in the UK, Japan, the US, Australia, Germany, France, India, Spain, Italy and Brazil.

Additionally, it can be found at various book retailers in the UK- including Blackwell’s,, Foyles, Hive, Waterstones, and WHSmith.
