2 weeks into the new year and I realise that I have been silent and that it may have appeared to some that I have run off into the sunset with my recording of the album never to be seen again! But, I am still here and marching on towards the finish line of mastering the final mixes of all the songs, deciding on the song order, coming up with a title that does the journey this has been justice, having the artwork designed and then miraculously somehow finding the funds to press 2000 copies and post them to people in 25 countries!

Needless to say, when I look at the task ahead of me I feel daunted and more than a little overwhelmed! Four months of recording last year effectively emptied the Lucky Packet coffers, so now I face the task of raising the last bit so that I can get all my Future Owners their copies as well as putting in some time to earn some sort of a salary for myself after losing my income while I was locked up recording.

Exciting news though is that the miracles are starting to unfold, and last week I heard that Saatchi & Saatchi have decided to take on designing the album artwork! I am beyond excited to have an award winning agency and design team on the project so am sure it is going to look stunning when it is done! Having them on board has given me such a boost of confidence and I am sure that the magic will continue to permeate this project right up until I pop the last copy in the post!

So - that's it from me for the moment. I promise I will be more vocal, but for now please know that I am making my way slowly to the finish line and feeling so grateful for everyone who has got me this far, and can't wait for you all to hear the first single on the airwaves and be able to say: "She's there because I believed she would be!"
