All wrapped up.

It's so exciting for me that the dust jackets for "the Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women" have been such a success, especially since cancel culture is making some waves at the moment. It's a small thing, but it's important to me to have the uncensored version of the artwork available to anyone who wishes it.

I've spent a very busy morning cutting dust jackets and wrapping them around copies of my book which are destined for my favourite places. When I had them printed, it was more cost effective to have them made larger and cut them down than it was to have a special size made. Every single dust jacket I've wrapped or posted is hand cut by me while I smile to myself about putting my cover on my book the way I wanted it to be.

I'm also really excited to hear that the Abbey Museum gift shop has almost completely sold out of signed copies and are keen to get more in from me. I'm so glad that people are not only supporting their local Australian author, but their local small museum as well.

Thanks so much, everyone.
