Beautiful Affliction book

Hello Friends! Here is a picture of Beautiful Affliction in my book shelf, next to some of the books on writing I have read and re-read the past years (and an Indonesian wood carved elephant 🙂 ). It is still a strange feeling, seeing and holding a copy of my book! I remember when it was still a dream I hoped would one day come true, and here it is, page after page of materialized dreams.

This past month has been super busy, we have traveled to Kuala Lumpur to find a place to live come January (found an apartment that I like, yay!), we have traveled to Singapore to visit my hand doctor who concluded I needed surgery, which he performed that very afternoon (not yay). So the past few weeks my right hand has been in a bandage, not ideal for a writer, or for anyone for that matter. (My goodness, typing with only my left hand takes forever!) (If you wonder what happened to my hand, I can’t tell you, because I don’t remember! Apparently I had some sort of accident where a ligament was torn off, but I can’t remember when it happened, which my hand doctor finds very strange, but explains with my high tolerance for pain. Hm, I don’t like pain.)

Something that warmed my heart tremendously was to see Beautiful Affliction climb the charts on Amazon, the week before Thanksgiving. The book was even number one in Canada! Imagine that!

#1 Bestseller Beautiful Affliction

I love Canada!! ♥ And all of you wonderful readers who so generously recommend my book, I can’t thank you enough! ♥ Beautiful Affliction also climbed to number one on Amazon USA, kindle Memoirs! And number 24 out of all books in USA, I could barely believe it!

Wishing you a wonderful December with beautiful winter weather or cooling rainy season, depending on where you are.

With love,


PS. If you have read Beautiful Affliction and liked it, I would be tremendously happy if you would consider leaving a review or a rating on Amazon and/or Goodreads. It would mean a lot to me. Thank you.
