A hole to fill
Cold again, heating not quite off yet, spring wardrobe reinforced with undergarments of appropriate thickness. Greetings to all and thank you for the kind comments about the book. All the publishing types are in Bologna at the children's book fair and when they return I will know more about what happens next.
Until then I'm reading our new book club choice 'My Dear I Wanted To Tell You' by Louisa Young (I do recommend it, give the opening chapter a try) and also the new book from today's guest, Wilbur Smith called 'Those In Peril'. I read quite a few Wilbur Smith books when I was younger and loved his tales of the Courtney family in South Africa. I think the words are epic, saga and blockbuster. And he is still selling by the bucket load. This book is a contemporary, stand-alone thriller about pirates who kidnap a wealthy oil-tycoon's daughter. More than 30 books and 120 million copies sold. If I sound as though I'm asking for tips, I'm sure you'll let me know...
Sugarland went down rather well it seems and I have to say Jennifer's voice was quite something to behold. I don't know if we can put their songs on the site but will find out. The fact that they aren't there now would suggest that maybe that's not happening this time. We'll try and get them back when they return in November (November!).
And for songs today, I'm thinking HOLES. The RAC are reporting a huge increase in callouts due to cars being damaged by hitting POTHOLES. But there are all sorts of holes in songs and your job is to find the best ones. If you have a moment. Ta.
Have a wise and thoughtful Tuesday, see you after 5.
