Hi all,

I am ill since yesterday, but that doesn´t matter since my friday started out so brilliantly!

My manager tells me that we will finally be able to get a deal with my own book about my years in Nightwish. I´ve kept a diary throughout the years and now it seems like we will be able to make my very very own bookdeal;=)

ENJOY your friday!!!

Jag tror att det skulle vara intressant att läsa men varsågod och tänk lite före du publicera den - där finns saker som bara är privat.
Men så länge som ingen ska ta ont av det det är nånting bra att sätta i gång, jag tror att jag skulle läsa den.



Philippa said...

Hej Anette, so sorry to hear that you're ill, but the news about the book sounds really exciting! I'll look forward to hearing more about it in time. But for now I hope you'll get well soon. Take care of yourself and the baby, and happy Friday :)

Mads Bjerre Henriksen said...

Wow, that sounds really cool!
I bet it will be great :D Maybe you could ask the management about making it into an Ebook as well? So it will be able to reach out to a lot more people :)

Sad to hear that you've been ill - your family are taking care of you, I hope :)

Have a good evening :)

Congratulations about the book! :)

Melanienemo (Love Anette Olsson Forever.) said...

Hei Anette,
Ohhh I'm sorry to read that you are sick .... I hope you feel better soon!
This is a great idea book! I hope that the agreement will be signed soon !!
I amazing !

Moondance said...

Hi, Anette
I'm sorry to hear that you're ill, hope you'll recover soon! :)

And about book... Mmm... Don't get angry with me, but I think it's not such a good idea. I'm afraid that after book's release some "smart" people can sling mud on you for nothing. You've suffered a lot of horrible things, but I'm afraid of happening this again and afraid for you. Hope you understood me.

Nalon said...

Hello Anette.
At first: get well soon;)

And Congratulations for your bookdeal;). The book announcement makes me very curious.

On instagram I saw the sweet picture of Nemo. He did it very cuddly with you on the couch.

Now rest of you. Let yourself indulge like a queen, and drink a lot of dainty tea.;)


Unknown said...

I am very glad to hear that, Anette. I can not wait to read. Just do not forget Brazil, please. haha

Some news about your solo career? I'd love to know, because I barely have time to follow your blog, except to make a "quick look". :/


Unknown said...

Wonderful news! I look forward this book!
Get well soon ;-) A lot of health and happiness to you, dear Anette!
Love and hugs ;-)

Magia Gelada said...

Hello Anette,

First of all I wish you can get well soon :)

Good news about the book. I am sure you'll do a great job with it and that it will be interesting.

Have a nice weekend

October Lane said...

Thats amazing I would love to read that book, when's it out?

Unknown said...

AMAZING news. Your fans will be so keen to read it.

I wanted to let you know that I've entered a competition. It's called The Big Blog Exchange and the 'prize' is for 16 bloggers to 'swap' places and blogs for 10 days. It would be an amazing opportunity. I've entered with my blog: because I think I'm quite unique in that I write about my life with Bi-Polar. I was inspired by how honest and open you are about your life. That was one of the reasons I started blogging, and also to help me overcome all the negativity I've faced with bullying over the years.

I would be so honoured if you could vote for me? Or allow this comment so perhaps your blog readers could? Like you, I want to bear my soul to the world through my blog in the hope it helps others.

You can vote for me at:

Thank you dear one

Lucinda said...

That is very good news! I hope it will be a nice thing to read. I also hope that we will still have a good opinion of the band no matter what, even though truth is preferable =) Of course as I read this, I immediately thought about Nighwish official biography, the one they released after Tarja left. It didn't particularly blame her - she also had her word to say, so I hope it will be the same kind of book. However, I guess things went better between you and Nightwish than between Tarja and the band... Well, we'll see!

Good luck with the writing and rearrangements, we can't wait!

Taaja said...

What a wonderful news! I'm looking forward for it!

Get well soon!

Black Crow said...

I hope you'll get better very soon!
News about the book are really amazing! I would like to read it! ;)
Have a nice evening and take care!

Unknown said...

Hi Anette, AMAZING news :-) I´m looking forward to your book now :-D
Be healthy very soon dear :-)

Unknown said...

You are just full of surprises!!
Can't wait to read it. I'm sure it's gonna be amazing and very entertaining.

Have a great Friday, and get well soon!

Hugs and kisses :)

Katy Marie said...

I'm sure it will also be a great resource for young singers, one what it's like to travel and tour.

LindaS said...

Very good news of the book Anette! I can't wait to read it! I hope you'll be having a book signing near me in the U.S.

I hope you feel better soon dear.


Dalma said...

I hope you'll feel better soon.
The book sounds exciting. In which language would you like to write it? I guess in English. I've just imagined how cool it would be to practise Swedish with something like that. :D

Feel better soon,

@Charlotte: I've voted for you. =)

Kriszti said...

Omg this is fantastic, I can't wait to read it! Congratulations! :)

Laetitianne said...


How are you? And your family?

I thought that you want to write about bullying. It is a good news all the same.

Have a nice evening.


Anonymous said...

wow your own book *_* I think it's great and your book will be an inspiration for your fans, people that was bullied and the people that wanna be in the industry of the music , I love the music and the Bass .. I wish I could play the Bass like johan he is great :) I'm finishing Petroleum Engineering and i'm 25 years old so i feel that it's too late or i'm too old to start study music hehe xD but i'm happy for you because you are a beautiful person and your voice is amazing , i wish you a lot of success
I can't wait for your book and your solo album.
Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend , take care

Unknown said...

Just want to say, NW book.. probably a bad idea. Majority of the fans (except the handful of ones on your blog) are against it.
Some are saying it is making you look greedy, squeezing every cent out of the name Nightwish.
Others say it's childish as no doubt it will contain drama and everyone is so sick of drama.

So just wanted to say the majority of fans who heard the news are against the idea, go look around youself if you like.

in short..bad move.

Paulo said...

Hi Anette, hope you will get better soon!

Congratulations for the book! I don't think it'd bring anything negative to your life and career. We already have a book that clearly shows how the life on road is on a male perspective, and it's good to have one coming from a female member of a metal band. It sure will be very informative and entertaining for everyone, specially young female singers.

All the best.

Pascal said...

Hi Anette!

First of all, get well soon, ok? :). I wish you the best. What exactly do you have?

And wow, that sounds interesting, I´m no book reader actually, but I´m sure I´ll read it when it is published. I hope it´ll be also sold here in Germany and translated into german, if not I´ll get it via internet and read it in english I guess.

Have a nice evening and a very nice weekend, dear Anette! And please, take always good care of yourself :).


xxMissCxx said...

WOW! A book will be awesome! Be lovely to read your tales from your NW years :) Hope you and bump are doing well :) Amy x

Kriszti said...

Oh I'm such an ass, I forgot to say that I hope you'll get better soon, just like Nemo did when he was sick! Lots of healing kisses xoxo

Anonymous said...

That is so cool! That's an awesome way to start a new month! I'm sorry you're feeling under the weather for the last few days. I wish you a speedy recovery! :)

saskia said...

Hey cant wait to read the book.
Hope you are better soon.
have a nice weekend!!

Unknown said...

I'm sorry that ur sick. I'm excited for your book. This is one thing I will read! Is it coming out in US?
Get well very soon and enjoy the rest of your day.

ArenaSkies said...

Hey, Anette!

This is definitely interesting news. I hope it gets published. I'd like to read your experiences with Nightwish. I know how hard it must have been since the fan base had seemed to split when you joined. I admired your tenacity for sticking through thick and thin from all that.

As a fan, I am a bit concerned, though. Some people have jumped to conclusions that you'll be bashing Nightwish. I hope that's not the case. I'm just worried, that's all.

Anyway, congratulations on the deal!

Happy Friday Anette! :-)

XxBriannaxX said...

shay said...

Hi anette..thats great news....i don't think you'll bash Nightwish...u have too much Class..... its just not u...but i think will be a good book about all really amazing experiences with touring and writing and recording experiences....maybe a few conflicts in the band that were probably resolved....and maybe about all the tarja fans bullying u........

Helminen said...

Oh, wow! Now my Saturday starts briliantlly because of you! That's great news! Since I'm studing Swedish for some time, I hope I'll be able to read the original, not some translations, but anyway, it will be the best practise ever!
Thank you!


Serafim said...

Wow!!! What a great news! =) I will be really waiting for it!

THK said...

Cleo said...

GREAT NEW!!! I can't wait to read it!!! Congratulations my dear!!

Unknown said...

Hi Anette! I can't wait for read it! But I don't know if it will come to Argentina =S

I wish you feel better soon.


Luuh (Lucas Pereira) said...

Hey Anette, Hope you are better about the ill, in this lasts days of preganancy is better stay always in good helth. Yesterday I went to the hospital in the midle of the night because i had a strong pain in my belly ): But I'm totally fine now... But I hate hospitals...

I think is a interesting idea the book, but dont you think that first should be better focous in your solo career? You know, there is a lot of people that follow Nightwish members even if they do a plan to kill the Queen ( just a crazy exmple hahahaha), and well, and this lot of people always get bad interpretation about everything that someone else says. And maybe with a solo first you can get a better and faithful audience? I read in internet and some people thinks that your book will only contain drama and speak evil things of the band members. I know that this is not the point because i belive that you will never do this, that your book will speak about bullying with fans the rockstar life even when you fell a normal girl... But arent better you wait some years to relese this? you work in your solo, and I heard a lot of good coments about your last solo songs that we can hear on the web. And then speaks more than your nightwish years, but your rebirth and growth outside the band.
Dont understand me wrong please, I really love you and I'll always love you andd follow you!You give me inspirations to do things that some people said that I wasn't possible. Biut this is my troughts about it. Hope you tought a little bit better about it, but if not well, I'll stay always in your side my angel :)

Hope is everything fine with your little one in your belly, the glorious day of his/her birth is comming *__*'

Wish you a magical weekend Anette!

Betty Blue said...

That´s amazing! Congratulations!
Do you think here in Germany I will have any chance to get it?
Be well soon!
Love, Betty

linnea-maria said...

Wow exciting! Jag är säker på att du har mycket att berätta! Vet du vad jag tänkte först när du berättade att du skulle ge ut en bok, så tänkte jag aha en bok om mobbing, men så läste jag att det var om dina år i nightwish. Jag tror faktiskt du skulle kunna skriva en riktigt bra bok om mobbing eftersom du besitter sådana kunskaper om det. Både när det gäller barn,vuxen och nätmobbing. Kram

Unknown said...

Is it gonna be published in English?

I so wanna read your version of the story!!!

Please, please...

Karin said...

Oj, hoppas du känner dej bättre snart!
Jättefint att du fått till stånd en bok. Tror att den är intressant och jag kommer åtmonstone att läsa den :)

I have had a bad week , but now I am with friends and feeling good again. I have been listening to your songs, and your voice, and I am glad you posted those songs from Delain! I like their songs. . Thank you again for introducing me to new things !
Looking forward to your book !

Unknown said...


will be very interesting to read it!!
good luck with that....

by the way, i wanna show you this, hope you dont mind, it was a hard work to find pictures from each concert, I Run it by myself....

Its a page with pictures from all the concerts from you with Nightwish [from the very first one, to the last one]

Marianne said...

Fantastic news! Sing like a bird my have a beautiful song to be sung...the truth. Fell better, and hope the last of your pregnancy goes well.

Anna said...

Miss you dear...
Hope you are fine:)

Anonymous said...

This book will be good, I think. A lot of people are curious about what it's like to front such a prominent band, and now they will know the truth. I have always wondered about your struggles in the band and how you overcame them. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

Nettie, those are wonderful news! But, i was wandering... to release that book you'll need Nightwish permission, am i right?. So, if they give you the "Ok" will u publish everything? From your best moments with them, to the worst? I mean, i dont think they'd like the fight to be opened up in public. Also their, mistreats.

Beatrix said...

Hi Anette,
I always start to worry when you are silent for a while..
Hope everything is ok!
Take care!

Yanna said...

I hope you feel better today ♥

And I'm very happy for your book, can't wait to read it !!

I hope your week end was great too !

Just wanted to tell you that there is a little mistake on your blog, on the right side, an "i" is missing, you wrote "Anette Olzon Offcial" instead of Official =)


Anna said...

Oh sweetie! Just saw that you are at hospital right now from instagham. I really hope your recovery will be fast, so i sent to you lots of positive thoughts and get well wishes!!! Stay strong and remember that you will never ever stay alone in Denver or whatever else!!!

Unknown said...

The cover for your book made by me ^_^ I hope you like it!

Karin said...

Oh no! Just checked your Instagram and found out you're in hospital! Can't comment there, so have to do it here.
I send you a lot of positive thoughts, and we all here are with you there :) Hospital is a good place to be when you are that sick. Others take care of you, and you know you are in good hands. And yes, thank god you are not alone in Denver this time !! Really hope you will get better soon.
A big virtual hug from me :)

Nalon said...

Hi Anette,

I have read in Instagram you are in the Hospital since last night.
I hope you two goes it better now. And yes. You are not alone:).

Anette, you are a strong woman;)
I send you all best wishes for your recovery.

Sleep well.


Estelindis said...

I hope that putting the book together is enjoyable and cathartic for you, dear Anette. I'm sure that it will be a very good read.

All the same, I'm hoping that it won't say a huge amount about the split from Nightwish. The band is very careful not to comment about the reasons for the split in their interviews, saying they want to keep it private - I guess maybe they learned from the Tarja drama? I'm assuming that you have been following the same policy and will continue to do so? I mean, sure, I'd like to know, but satisfying fan curiosity is less important than keeping drama out of the lives of the people involved. Maybe this way media focus on the subject will die out sooner and you will be able to keep the focus on your new projects, musical and otherwise, when you're being interviewed without media always asking about the split.

Dark Queen said...

OMG, Anette!
Just read on your Instagram that you're in hospital! I'm really sorry for that :( I hope you will get well soon and that you baby is ok.
Best wishes to you!!!
Lots of hugs, love and kisses ♥
May God bless you

The Dreamer and the Bead said...

Hi Anette, I hope that you will write your book with the same integrity and dignity that we repect you for. Glad you are home from the hospital. Well wishes.

Unknown said...

Good news! ;) I look forward to read it soon! Hugs.

Quentin said...

Hello Anette,

How can you make a book about "you and Nightwish" when we still don't knowwhy you leave the band ? Why just like that ?
It's just for making money or what ?
I really don't understand....

All the best for you baby and your big family now ! ;)

Russel Fermin said...

HI Anette,

Get well soon as fast as you can! :-)

Btw about the book!? Well, I hope this book was about the good things you had with the band. Well, actually I would disagree if that would be done.

Well I think it's quite unfair that you didn't want to be part of the DVD due to some personal reasons (I believe). So i think to be fair with them, you don't need to get the book released. While we understand that you really wanted to move forward and let go of the past, we just hope you could move forward to by not talking about NW. I mean, for us, it is much better to read more about your upcoming solo album! It's pretty much interesting and that could simply made everyone's day. :-)

I hope you can post some snippets of the songs in the future. I also hope you could get someone who would help you make your decisions a lot of times to think before posting it in public, you know for taking care of a reputation.

Okay, I do hope you'll have a great day. I do wish you more power and success and I hope you came to note what your fans are saying about this, okay?

Have a good day.
