Received a beautiful letter at Utter Fiction today

We had a beautiful letter cross our desks at Utter Fiction earlier today.

One of our clients created a truly outstanding personalised book of their family adventure to Dolphin Marine Magic and the writer explained that ‘swimming with dolphins’ was on her mother’s bucket list.

Which got me to thinking…what would I put on my bucket list, what would my friends have on theirs … and where would anyone go for inspiration?

Without a word of a lie, the very first bucket-list website that I researched[1] had the following in their top 5.

  1. Set foot in North America, South America, Asia, Europe, Australia, Antarctica and Africa
  2. Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
  3. Personally know someone famous
  4. Dance with Miss America (or Miss ‘insert your country here’)
  5. Swim with a Dolphin

Utter Fiction already offers books that could have helped the author towards achieving that particular Top 5.  We proudly claim Balloon Aloft (Hot Air Ballooning at the Hunter Valley, Hawkesbury and Camden Valley) plus Dolphin Marine Magic as corporate partners and friends of our company.

We’re aware that ticking great adventures off a list means more than just having a story – it means there’s been some strategy that you’ve employed to wring the most out of what life has offered you.  You’ve taken the opportunity to plan something truly special that holds significant meaning for you personally – and you’ll want to remember that adventure forever.

So, our heartiest congratulations to Caitlyn’s mum.  We know that you didn’t do the adventure for anyone but you.  What we can say is we’re so proud to be able to help you remember that special moment forever.

*Caitlyn’s email:

… This book was so special to create because swimming with the Dolphins was on my mum’s bucket list, and this book will be such a special treasure for her to keep and always remember her dream coming true. We can’t wait for it to arrive!

I have to commend your wonderful business and the ease of adaptability with your program. It was so easy to choose, edit and move my photos exactly where I wanted them. The cropping tool is simple and easy to use. 

Thank you very much! I’m so glad you liked my idea of making a collage for the single photo page. While a large photo would have looked lovely in the book, I just couldn’t choose one!

I’d be so honoured for you to use my book as your book of the week! Thank you very much for asking.

Kind regards,
