[quote=""Ash""]Yeah! I asked in another thread if someone could invite her - I didn't imagine it would actually happen! Thanks to whoever pulled it off. I will so be there![/quote]

I think it's great of her because she has been unwell and is having to pace herself. I guess this is like going on a virtual tour - and reaching people from all corners of the world!

Awesome! I just now got off the phone with my Mom and were talking about SKP. I've been telling her for a while how much I love her novels and she said she is just about to start reading Here Be Dragon's. And then I find this thread! How cool!

I'm going to have to think of some questions to ask. But one main one is why things were so civil between Henry and Eleanor while she was imprisoned. They went at it a few times but never in the book did Eleanor ask/beg/demand Henry to let her go. I thought that was odd. The never even fought about it. I'll have to think up a bunch of other questions!!

I'll have to think of something to ask her then, as I can't see me getting up then. 2:30am is damn late on a Sunday! :p

Wonderful! I've marked it on my calendar.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

[quote=""MLE""]Oh, I would love to ask her about re-writing Sunne in Splendour after the first manuscript was stolen, and if she felt she did a better job the second time around, or if there were some parts that she just couldn't get back. Except I will be at a conference from October 19-24 and probably will be too busy to do more than check in -- if even that. Rats![/quote]

That's what I would ask too.

I can't see myself getting up at 3am, however....if I have been up to feed the baby then I might just stop in before heading back to bed. Depends on if I remember, or if I have fallen asleep and am just managing to get him down before stumbling into bed myself!

Instead of rolling out the red carpet for SKP, we between put down some fresh rushes some sweet smelling herbs!
