Book News:

Oh, For the Love of Books! says of E&E: “With Sophronia’s quick wit and free spirit, you’re addicted from the very beginning. Her spunky nature and dry wit easily won me over and her curiosity led to many, many interesting adventures.”

Quote of the Day:
“Haven’t you ever noticed that people who win say it’s because the gods know they are in the right, but if they lose, it wasn’t the gods who declared them wrong? Their opponent cheated, or their equipment was bad.”
~ Tamora Pierce, Squire

    Thank you for a lovely afternoon at the bookshop. My husband is already halfway through Crudrat and hasn't stopped raving about it.

    More than halfway now, actually. Thanks again from the guy in the grey flannel with the biscuits. (Not scones, sorry—no lemon zest to hand when I was baking! They were just a stick of butter wearing a bit of flour for disguise.)

    I very much hope you have a chance to return to the Crudrativerse in the future—it seems such a wide-open place that it would be a shame for it to be a one-off. Granted, I don't want to stop reading about the Akeldamataverse either (Does that work? The universe resulting from the actions of Akeldama? My grasp on language is usually more enthusiastic than accurate…)
