Aliventures Break (While Ali Has a Baby!)
As you can probably tell from the photo above, I’ll be having a baby soon (due date is 21st February). This is our first child; my husband and I are very much looking forward to welcoming her into the world.
So I can concentrate on being a mum, I won’t be publishing any updates on the Aliventures blog, or sending out the Aliventures newsletter, from now (January 24th) until late April.
Don’t Miss Out Once I’m Back!
To make sure you’re the first to know once I’m back at my desk, pop your email address in below to receive my blog posts straight to your inbox.

I’m off to start a new adventure … but I’ll be back soon with plenty to say about writing, blogging and self-publishing. 🙂
I’m Ali Luke, and I live in Leeds in the UK with my husband and two children.

Congratulations (though you might not see that in time). You’re in for some wonderful (if somewhat sleep-deprived) times.
