Isn't it pretty? I was SO excited to receive it and am storing it safely until all its brothers and sisters arrive this month. I came home from work on Thursday and must have been home about an hour before my husband said to me 'oh yes, I almost forgot - you had a package come today.' Casual as you like. I need to impress onto him the need to tell me AS SOON AS I WALK IN THE DOOR if I receive post for the next week weeks. Men!
We're enjoying a sunny Bank Holiday long weekend at the moment. Isn't it great to have three day weekends? I reckon in the next elections, if any of the parties said that they would change working week to Tue - Fri they would get everyone's vote! We are having a relaxing weekend, can't bear the thought of braving the motorways over a Bank Holiday. We have a new restaurant opening in town this week and this weekend, if you followed them on Twitter you were sent a link to apply to have a pre-opening booking. All food half price so they can test the menu. So I applied and we have a table booked for tomorrow evening. A nice way to round off the weekend! I can't wait to see what it's like inside. The original building is about 230 years old and it's use has changed so much since it first opened as a brewery in the late 1700s.
Remember me telling you about my friend who had her first book published? Well, it goes on sale in America next week. She has a preview copy for me so I will share more very soon. It had to be published under a different title in the US as the original UK title of Fractured is also - apparently - the title of a series of thrillers in the US, and her book definitely should not be confused with that! It's been interesting to live through this with her; the marketing in the US is very different to the UK even to the design of the covers, what sells in the UK would not be picked off the shelves in the US. Even the type of paper that the pages are printed on is different. Who knew?!
Enjoy your weekend!
