Nailsea writer gets book published

A WRITER from Nailsea is celebrating after her dream of publishing a book came true on her birthday.

Samantha Dean, aged 39, of Dorchester Close, had been attempting to write a book for several years when her husband and work colleagues persuaded her to take the plunge and approach a publisher. She said: “I sent my manuscript to a publisher to see if they thought it was any good. To say I was stunned when they said they’d like to publish it is an understatement.

“So after numerous corrections which included proof reading, and tying up loose ends, numerous additions and omissions, I finally got it to a stage where I was happy with it. I designed the cover myself and having had cover and manuscript signed off it was finally good to go.

“I received a package in the post on my birthday this year and it was a complimentary copy of my rather large novel. Words cannot describe how it felt to hold it.”

The book Breaking Point took three years to write and has been classed as a romantic, supernatural thriller.

Samantha works as a general assistant at Phaze Electrical Ltd in Nailsea.
