'Love Pink'

Last year when I was coming to an end with the production of my book, I contacted photographer and writer Sally Page for some advice about publishing. Sally and her partner set up their own publishing business some years ago and now have several titles available in 'The Flower Shop' series - Sally was very kind and generous with the information that she passed on to me. I also sent her a copy of my book for her honest opinion, but at the time could not have believed where this was to lead...

Sally's sixteen year old daughter Libby was in the process of putting together a glorious book entitled 'Love Pink', which was to be a celebration of everything pink, from fashion and flowers to fridges and fairies, for the pink enthusiast to enjoy! On seeing the photography in my book, Libby asked me if I would be interested in submitting some of my particularly pink photographs to include in her venture. Of course I was delighted to agree and supplied 10 photographs to be included.
A couple of days ago a parcel arrived for me a little earlier than I was expecting, and my copy of 'Love Pink' was here!

Inside, Libby has written a four page section entitled 'Vintage Pink', which includes my photographs, along with a few paragraphs about me and my small business.

I am thrilled to bits with how my photos have come out on the printed pages, with them having received the expert editing from Sally's family run publishing house Fanahan Books.

The book also contains many of Libby's own photographs, as well as the responses she received from journalists and celebrities who replied to the 'pink questions' she sent them.

It's a joy for all pink lovers - Libby has recorded details of her six months spent searching for all things pink, which includes roses, shoes, lingerie, sweets and even pink houses.

Very generously, 70% of the profit made from each book will be donated by Fanahan Books to breast cancer care.

If you would like to order a signed copy by Libby of 'Love Pink', they are available directly from the Fanahan Books website here.
I would just like to congratulate Libby on my blog for this wonderful achievement. She has produced a lovely book and should be very proud of herself. Libby hopes to progress to fashion collage after leaving school, where I am sure she will do extremely well in her studies to become a fashion journalist.
