Well congrats on the book deal. I for one am waiting rather impatiently to seeing it finally on the shelves so that I can tell people in the book shop that I "know" the author. Do they really need to know I only know you virtually?:-)

I swore I'd never buy another Shape magazine but if you've written a piece in it then I simply have to - so is it the January or February 2006 issue?

Anyway congrats again.

And I will so be there at your book signings.

For what it's worth, doll, I just wanted to say I'm so proud of you :) You have a beautiful story to tell, and a strong voice to tell it with -- your book will by flying off the shelves in no time.


I can't wait to get my copy! I will run around like a giant nerd telling everyone I know the author.

Just as I do with your blog, I will read and digest every single word in your book. I can't wait. Please keep us updated on its progress. And congratulations!

We just need to make sure your publisher goes into a bigger market, we expect to buy this from amazon.com. There is a bigger market that will benefit from your story...maybe Oprah is listening 8) Ben lives in our hearts even though he wasn't ours. All infertiles can feel it and know how beautiful Ben was. You should be so proud of yourself, I'll be one of the first to buy your book. --Sissy

Well Good Going on the book, Tertia!

I'm so happy to hear that you completed an ENTIRE first draft!!! And how smart of you to turn it over, even in it's rough state, to make sure you are going down the right path. Keep up the good work. When you are finished, you will have made a wonderful contribution to the world of infertiles and those that have overcome infertility, moms, working moms, twin moms....And most of all, you will have something to be proud of for life.

Oh how wonderful, Tertia, congratulations! I can't wait for the book to come out. You think you are getting a lot out of it? That will be NOTHING compared to what people who read it will get out of your story. Well done!

dear tertia, congratulations on your first draft. i predict BIG things for your book. you just wait, it will have such a following. i hope someone will tune oprah into it. i know that sounds silly, but unfortunately IF is still a dirty little secret, non-IFers are completely unaware of our underground network. i hope you can be our voice. all the best!

I am soooo excited about your book for you and for everyone who will have the chance to read your story. You are so very brave to put it out there. I want to thank you in advance for sharing it. Your blog helps me everyday I can't imagine the impact your book will have.

You go girl!!!

i am so excited to devour your book. i know it will be wonderful.
can i send mine to you to be signed? i know you'll want your favourite lesbian to have a signed copy...unless you come on tour to canada :)

Sign me up for a copy. I'm thrilled for you, Tertia. Couldn't happen to a nicer (and more fabulous) person.

Holy shit Tertia you finished a draft ALREADY? I should be asking YOU for writing advice. I've been remiss in my blogging (both writing and reading) or I would have jumped on this sooner, but lady you are AMAZING in addition to G&D, you asshole, you. My hat is forever off to you.

Tertia, I am so happy for you that you found your voice and flow. This is another milestone in your life of IF. Mazel Tov on your first draft!! I am so proud of you and proud to know you. I cannot wait to read my signed copy! Am v.v.glad to know that you will be a voice for all us infertiles. Is it okay with you if i send a copy to Oprah when it is published? I agree with Sissay 100%. You need to be marketed on Amazon.

Another B for you ...
Glad the book is going so well - you sound really well too!
Continued best wishes,


So will your book be available in the US or just in South Africa? I would love to read it!!

Oh Tertia! YOu are such an inspiration! Writing is something I aspire to do one day, and it is wonderful to see you putting yourself out there and DOING it! Congrats! I can't wait to buy it! Can you email us when Amazon.com has it?

Congrats, Tertia! This is amazing news. Will have to have a glass of wine in your honor tonight with dinner. How do you feel about an Argentinian malbec?

Count me as one of the many who hopes your book will be available in the U.S.

I am definately impressed at how you managed to get that draught finished when you have so much going on in your life, you must have had hardly any sleep. You said you don't do any work on the book when the babes are awake cos that is their time - shows that you are a very caring and good spirited mum.

Tertia, I think this is fantastic! Congrats!

Well done! You rock.

Congratulations, Tertia! I agree with all of the posts about hoping your book is also available outside of South Africa!

Goodness, you astound me, a completed draft already! I am very much behind on my own writing (you are so right about wine consumption being a tremendously demanding task, some evenings it is all I have time for, unfortunately). I am very much looking forward to seeing your book in stores, where I am certain it will make you reams of money and bring delight to millions.

Congrats on finisihing the draft Tertia! I hope your book will be available in the US!

Congratulations on finishing the fisrt draft. You amaze me. I wish I had 1/10 of your energy and strength.

Woohoo! How the heck did you finish that rough draft so fast with so little time? You *must* have given up on *some* wine drinking, no?!

That must have been really hard, going back over your journals about Ben being born and writing about all that. I hope it helped continue the healing for you. That, and having your awesome mommy around. It's no surprise that you seem to be such an awesome mommy yourself.

Dear Tertia

I wrote a book myself a few years ago - its a huge amount of work. Just wait until you actually receive authors copies from the publisher and are signing autographs at the launch - you will feel fabulous. One of the best days of my life.

And I love the idea that the world will know about Ben. He wasn't on this earth for long, but he will make a big impact through your book. As will your own courage and faith.
