5 Days in Barcelona | Part 1

5 Days in Barcelona | Part 1

 

 

It is a very long time ago I visited Barcelona. I think it is 14 years ago now and just for one day. Months ago, I was thinking about our September holiday. I was scrolling through Pinterest (I love this medium so much!) and saw beautiful pictures of Barcelona. The tickets and the hotel were booked very quickly!

Photography | My Love for Vintage

Photography | My Love for Vintage

When I photographed vintage pieces for the very first time, I knew immediately that this was what I would like to do more. I love vintage because of the history of the item, and the mostly hand crafted details. To have this for my lens, I could not be happier at that moment. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to shoot some wonderful vintage pieces in boutiques in Nice the last few years. I was really in my element and from then on, I knew I would like to do more with fashion photography.

The Story of my First Book Publishing

 

The Story of my First Book Publishing

The Story of my First Book Publishing

Publishing your book.…a dream that came true….A few years ago I took part in a writing competition for the very first time. I had written a manuscript years before but I had never done anything with it.

Now it was my chance!

I wiped the dust off the paper and sent it to the publisher. I was aware that many people participated in writing competitions. Was the manuscript not too short?  What if…
I stopped worrying. If I did not win, I had had the experience at least, I thought.

The Story of my First Book Publishing

 

On a Friday afternoon, the phone rang. I was just preparing my lunch. It was the publisher. She had read my manuscript and they decided to don’t put it on a long list or a short list. The publisher wanted to publish it immediately.

What? I didn’t believe it what I’ve just heard. I forgot my lunch and called my husband and parents with the good news!

The Publication

My book was published by a printing-on-demand publisher. My father designed the cover. Flyers were printed and I made a mailing list to let everyone know about the publication of my first book.
My first real book! I pinched myself many times during this exciting time. I didn’t believe it until I received the books. It was a special moment, I can tell you.

This book is also translated into Dutch by publisher American Star Books, so that my story can reach more people all over the world.

I encourage everyone to take part in a writing contest. Even if you do not win, you will get the experience and feedback for your future writings!

My book is available here and here.

Have you ever took part in a writing contest?
