|Redemption, when you can get it, is a truly wonderful feeling indeed!|
|Mondkar The Manuscript Mountebank in action!|
I have some positive news that I wish to share with you, as Jemma has extracted a bit of personal redemption in the situation and, in doing so, has simultaneously realised one of her dreams. Ms Grey has moved from the realm of aspiring author to that of published author!
|A dream made reality!|
|Our newly-minted author signs a copy of her novel for a fan.|
She also had herself a stall at the recent GamesCon at UWI, St. Augustine as well on August 29th, where she not only enjoyed some good sales of her paperback but also got to see one of her favourite characters, Kickass, 'live' in the flesh via one of the Cosplay enthusiasts there. Don't be fooled by her apparently calm demeanour in this photo; she could barely contain her delight!
|To cap off a wonderful time, Jemma got to pose with Kickass!|
|Alas, Jemma never spells my real name right ... Too much The Omen movies, perhaps?|
I hope that you will, in turn, also help and support a local author by purchasing a copy or two of Pretend With Me and the upcoming novels (yes, plural) in the Midnight Society series. You can find copies (paperback and Kindle versions) at Amazon. At present, Jemma is deep into the completion of the second instalment, which should become available early next year. And, if there is any doubt in your minds, I am very proud of my friend's achievement and the small role that I had in helping to bring vision to reality. in this world where hopes and dreams can take decades to realise, if at all, yet can be dashed and shattered in a heartbeat, it is good to see one come true and it is a wonderful feeling to know that you're partially responsible for making it happen.

|From thought to paper to sales!|
|Happy Birthday to you, Jemma Grey!|
