I have some very exciting news to share. A few weeks ago I mentioned that I am doing some content writing for a couple of sites to learn better writing skills and hopefully be able to do more freelance writing work. Well this is the email I got today.
Hi Caro Hemingway,
We’re happy to inform you that your Hub, Safety Tips for Travel to South Africa, has been selected among 6 candidates for this week’s HubNuggets contest on HubPages!

Good luck and thank you for publishing on HubPages!
Now usually I would never impose on people asking them to vote for me but this time I am going to be bold enough to ask that if youlike the article then please vote for me – I don’t win a prize but rather exposure which would really help me in the long run SO thanks in advance if you vote for me – it will be much appreciated.

Underneath that are the six articles that are in the contest – find mine – I write under the name Caro Hemingway and then check the vote box and finally the cast my vote tab underneath and you are done!
More exciting writing news is that I have been accepted as a writer on another site so another door has opened for me. I have also taken steps to get a quote for my novel. I decided to go the route of a publishing company that offers more than some of the little self-publishing companies on the internet. this company is Australia based and there is one-on-one support. They will set out my book correctly, do the cover under my approval, get me an ISBN number , put my book into 25000 bookstores worldwide, put it on kindle and give me media coverage in Australia when it is published – that is pretty good I reckon. I was a little worried about the quote – let’s just say that it is not affordable to me right now, but it is possible to achieve. So now that I have a goal I am back into it seriously tweaking and rewriting sections I am not quite happy with. Very exciting.
I feel my dreams are coming true.
