    Have you signed up for Public Lending right?? Perhaps it is not worthwhile now? I tried to order a copy of your book for my local library but the assistant would not as was not on the system. I still borrow books as, if I do not, the library ...

    Dear Skylark, I bought a copy of your book at Waterstones at Trafalgar Square. There is shop at the end of the Strand. The book was among the new books that are displayed as you enter the shop. It is only an idea. I wonder if your agent ...

    What's so impossible about a dress? At least her teeth are fixed and she can smile. People are unfathomable.

    Do you honestly believe our Mandy has a sparkly dress in her own wardrobe? Let alone make-up and hair crimpers. :-) By pure coincidence, I know who did the editing of the whole thing - my son's flatmate who was alerted by the mention of my name ...

    I am looking forward to savouring your debut novel on holiday soon. Too busy here at the moment to do it justice. It is put safely by with other things to take in hand luggage. The physical book itself has a lovely feel to it, if that makes sense, and the cover image is lovely too. Quite intriguing, but I am sure all will become clear once the book has been read by yours truly. Jx

    Cloud lost my first comment congratulating you ~ floating around with the skylarks no doubt! So here are BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SKYLARK from me. Would have been lovely to be with you all at what Whisks told me was a wonderful occasion. Wishing you every success with sales. I will be buying a copy, of course. Jx

    I don't normally do this symbiotic "Loved your Comp Entry" stuff, Sky. But yours is stunningly good. So I'll say so.
