HUGE congrats, Ryan! // Rachel gave McGuire a mention // Mairi talked about collaboration // Jennifer of Flights of Fancy gave us a sweet shout-out! // I was interviewed by Amy Blakemore for YM // Gareth Trew appeared at Bolts of Silk // and Tom Allan, Juliet Wilson and Andy Philip all gave this collection a mention!

    Many thanks for the mention Claire(!), though every time I read that piece I’m increasingly irritated with it — needs more editing methinks.

  2. Claire Says:

    Ach, I know that feeling Gareth! Nescit vox missa reverti* and all that…

    *the word once sent out can never return. This is the only Latin I know so I’m always glad of an opportunity to be smug and use it! ;)

    What a great PS, Claire- I did miss these! Too many things I liked here- well, I like everything, so thanks!
