In case neither of you has seen the author's recent guest blog spot about going indie, here's the link: What's a Writer to Do? It appears that the sequel, Juno's Daughters , will be published only as an e-book next year. I'm glad she's found success selling The Wedding Shroud in that format, too. It...

I'll be there - I'm in Bath at the moment, sitting in our B&B while taking a break from the rain. My husband and I will be driving back to London on Wednesday. See you both soon!

Just finished Tony Hays' The Stolen Bride , 4th in his Arthurian mystery series, which was very good, with many twists I didn't see com...
