It's been another very busy week for me, not so much at QVC but with preparations for my book. I received the copy edited manuscript last week with all the spelling and grammar corrections that had been made and trust me there were a few.
I needed to go through the whole book and accept or reject all the corrections or alterations made… quite a task when the book is 101 chapters long! I had made a start on that, about thirty chapters I think, but had to have a day off on Tuesday as I was having the cover photo taken.
I had organised it with Kathy's husband, who is a professional photographer and quite often does our publicity shots for QVC. He brought his equipment to my house and transformed our dining room into a 'studio' for the afternoon. I also had a professional make-up artist, Kerry September, who you may well have seen on air recently in the Liz Earle make-up show. It was something of a luxury for me as we normally have to do our own make-up at QVC unless we are doing a make-up show.
I was very pleased with the results, so much so that I can't decide which one should be on the cover of my book, I can't even decide which would be the best colour outfit, so I'm enlisting your help. Should I go for coral, red or purple? Obviously they will need to be touched up a bit… too many wrinkles for my liking but if you could let me know your fave it would be much appreciated.
Must dash as I'm on air in twenty minutes and I still have my rollers in.
Have a great weekend!
Much love, Julia xx
