David Copperfield and the London Book Fair

Thank you Pia, for allowing me to use your pic of my panel at the London Book Fair. Last year I was there and posted a pic of me in front of "my" panel. It makes me feel very special to have a big panel all to myself! Haven't heard of any sensational rights deals, yet, however. In other news, David Copperfield opened last night. We have rehearsed our socks off and been at the theatre till all hours for the last couple of weeks, and now we face two performances today, Saturday, each lasting three hours and ten minutes. After we come off next Saturday we will all need R&R for at least another week! Currently waiting for revisions to Murder by Magic and researching and writing first chapter of Murder in the Monastery. I'm a bit tired.

‘Was he bothering you?’ Lewis asked quietly, as he shepherded Libby towards

That is seven lines from page 77 in the current waiting-to-be-edited book. Loved yours, Jenny. I could have almost told it was you, even if I didn't know it was.

Now, how do I tag 7 other writers?
