My SciFi Book Battleframe Arrives!

My SciFi Book Battleframe Arrives!

For the past few days I’ve been watching my UPS package traverse the world with the first copies of my book, Battleframe. As I tracked the package I’d say to my wife Roselyn, “It’s in Honolulu!” this was then followed up by, “It’s now in Australia!” and then finally, there was a knock at the door…..

With our son Timothy taking photos and Roselyn on a video camera I slowly opened the box with the order of five books. Seriously, my heart was racing and I felt like I could barely hold the knife to cut the tape!

Seeing the first copy through the packaging on top was nothing short of one of the best moments in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I love ebooks but seeing a physical copy of something that you’ve worked on for so long was awesome! I think that the above photo captured the moment for me when I held Battleframe in my hands for the very first time. I was deliriously happy!

After enjoying the moment with my family I called my Mum and Dad who have both been such a great support in the writing of the book. They were around in about 10 minutes! I kept book number one but I presented my father with his own copy of Battleframe. The first thing that he asked was how far I was through book number two……Dads! LOL!

I couldn’t resist screen capturing the UPS delivery docket (see below).

If you’ve ever wanted to write a book, I hope that the happiness in my photo inspires you. It’s a magical experience seeing your writing in print and one that you’ll never forget.

I also want to take this time to thank all those people that have purchased their own copies of Battleframe. I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it. Don’t forget that after registering at michaelgilmour.com you can get access to maps of key locations, discussion forums and more content over the weeks ahead.

I can’t resist…..if you want to buy your own copy of Battleframe then it’s available on Amazon by clicking here or the image below.
