      Sandra It's not that we want something different but would be glad of a forensic eye, of you and of the fellow members of the group, on another novel. Plus we get to exercise our critique-ing faculties.

      Debi Why would it be, Sandra? We'd love to do a follow-up course one day, Melanie, but it's hard to know what we could offer that would be sufficiently different..
