IS IT A PROBLEM?

Is this blog confusing to you? I mean, I've almost entirely abandoned the "letters from end consumer" concept. Should I return to that concept or change name of blog?

Or does it not matter?

Happy day

Just got a mail from my publisher saying my next book is officially accepted. It's not completed yet but they want it. So happy.

Next step: scoring an illustrator. It's really the publisher that does this part but I get to suggest names. It's fun.

This book will focus on a character very similar to Niki, our youngest.

Expatte

Every now and then I mix English and Swedish here and I understand thats's confusing. No more of that. This will be only English. All Swedish posts will be here http://expatte.blogspot.com

Startar ny blogg på svenska här: http://expatte.blogspot.com

On publishing a book.


Recent studies show that a writer spends exactly the same amount of time (or more) as it took to write it, just thinking about the book and hoping for its success.

Oh book, hope you manage on your own. Hope children will find you and read you and make you part of their lives and homes.

Am about to try to find an Anglo publisher.
Any advice? Jenny, hoping for your contact of course, but just in case they're not interested.

My book is about 8-year old Simon who wants a pet more than anything but since his parents are so against pets (horrible people) he goes for the next best thing - a carnivorous plant.

Camera people
















You know I love my Fujifilm x-e2.
But earlier this summer I interviewed a super blogger who said she had both a Fujifilm and a Canon 5D Mark II and these were her words :

"I hoped the Fujifilm would be the solution. But it just doesn't do what the Canon does".

And ever since I've been dreaming about the Canon.

what do you say? would you start saving?
I'd buy a used one I think, could never afford a new one.

Also - those of you who are into photography, how many cameras do you have?



Back in NYC



Feeling confused, ready for fall, excited, a bit apprehensive.

This next year, what will it bring?
Will we become more rooted here or want to return to Stockholm?

Have a strong feeling we will have to let go of Stockholm to really feel at home here. Not sure if I'm ready to let go of Stockholm but at the same time this is where we live now.

Sure many of you have been through this.
If you did, did everyone in your family agree on the arrangements you made?
Or did one of you want to return/stay in contrast to the others?
