My Highlights of 2016

Merry Christmas wishes from us to you & your loved ones!

2016 is coming to end and I must say it was a productive year as an Author as well as a blogger and designer. I interviewed fascinating and inspiring personalities: Authors, Actors, Musicians, and Artists from England, the USA and Australia. If you have missed my interviews, don’t worry! The links to each of my inspirational interview partners will stay on the side-bar of my blog.
I have published three books in 2016. The second part of my Children’s book series “Bon Voyage, Monsieur Jac & Lily travel to Europe” was published in September and I even received a Thank you letter from the Chancellor of Germany and from Kensington Palace because Angela Merkel, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are one of my many personalities that Monsieur Jac & Lily meet while they’re discovering the beauty of Europe.

My first Illustrated Fiction Book “America’s Royal Family” was published in October and this time I received a Thank you letter from Prince Harry because he is one of the celebrities that Lisy meets in America, while she is looking for America’s Royal Family. And no, I will not reveal who America’s Royal Family is. You have to read the book to find out yourself.

And last but not least my Memoir “The Lily Amis Story” which includes the first two parts of my Trilogy “Destination: Freedom” and “Definition of Freedom”. The first part “Destination: Freedom” was nominated twice in 2016 in the Non-Fiction Category, which was amazing. Being nominated along talented and successful Authors from all over the world was a great experience and personal achievement. Thank you for all the votes!

2016 was also a meaningful year for me as an Artist. After years of working, waiting, and researching my mum and I finally managed to bring our designs into Life. Thanks to the Artist platform we have created 12 Collections! And we're currently working on many more gorgeous and lovely designs.
We also came up with the idea to support other Independent Artists, Authors & Musicians and will be offering a brand new Service4Indies” in 2017. If you are interested please check out our Website !
I like to use this opportunity to thank a few people that have supported and/or inspired me during in this year:
A huge thank you to the wonderful and inspiring British Author and Blogger Annelisa Christensen for interviewing me this year. It was an honor to have you as one of my inspirational interview partners on my blog as well. I’m going to spoil myself with a copy of #ThePopishMidwife for Christmas and can’t wait to write my review.

A huge thank you to the wonderful and talented American Author and Blogger Bibiana Krall for featuring “America’s Royal Family” on her blog and making me a part of her Indies Spotlight Family. You are an inspiration. Please keep up the good work & remember when you become a best-selling Author worldwide don’t forget me! :-)

A huge thank you to the California based artist Michael Alvarez. Thank you for inspiring me with your art. Thanks to you we discovered the Artist platform and were finally able to produce our own collections. Keep up the good work & God bless you and your loved ones.

A huge thank you to the multi-talented Swedish singer, songwriter& actor Carl Lindquist for his kindness. May all your goals and wishes come true. Best of luck with your upcoming Solo-Album! God bless you and your loved ones.

And finally A MASSIVE THANK YOU to ALL my inspirational interview partners. Keep up the good work and may you continue to inspire more people with your love and passion for art, music, movies and literature.

In my entire Life, I have never taken anyone for granted. I always say kindness & selfless support is a God-given blessing! Either you have it or you don’t! And the older I get the more I’m grateful for honest, respectful, caring and loving people in my life.
Some people are just there for you in their Free time. And others take the effort to make time for you despite their busy schedule! Those are caring people who help or care for others not because they expect a reward, but because it is natural to them to show kindness. It is natural to them to be loving and caring. So thank you to those who made the time to be there for me despite their busy life and work schedule, time difference and distance.

And thanks to all the pretenders. You made me realize once again that money, success and fame does change people. Remember you can fool trustful, naive and genuine people, but you can’t never ever fool God. Money can buy you fame, success and a false image. But money can’t buy you personality, honesty, kindness and humanity! Thanks to fake pretenders I appreciate the RIGHT, NICE and REAL people with a sincere heart even more.

God bless you all. Merry X-Mas and Happy New Year!
