Please grab a glass of Champagne and a smoked salmon canape from the waiter. Youre just in time for my launch speech.

Its great to see so many of you here today thank you for sparing the time to come along. There will be chocolate profiteroles and cream when Ive finished speaking so Ill keep it short!

One Day For Me contains some of my writing successes from recent years eight stories that have either won or been shortlisted in UK national writing competitions. The subject matter and characters are varied and include Wallis Simpson, an abused wife, a young girl making money from lost property and a pro-athlete struggling with the demands of her career.

Im proud of these stories and Id like to share them with you.
Of course, I didnt work in isolation. I want to say a big thank you to my writing buddy, Helen Yendall http://blogaboutwriting.wordpress.com/ , who read many of these stories when they were still a work in progress.

I also want to thank Marilyn Rodwell http://outofthecocoa.blogspot.co.uk/ of the Birmingham RNA http://www.rna-uk.org/ and our anonymous erotic writer member, who between them organised an inspiring workshop on e-publishing without which I would never have got this project off the ground.

Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you to all the followers of this blog who took the time to comment on my original cover design. I learned a lot from you all (which I will summarise in another post) and I hope you agree with me that the finished cover is a vast improvement!

I now declare One Day For Me launched!
