Huge congratulations on your SYTYCW success – and I loved the tips, especially the *no internet* LOL.
However most importantly I *had* to comment on how much I loved your lovely blog post about Sir Terry Pratchett/Sir Sam Vimes. The latter such a wonderful hero especially when he wants to protect his heroine – despite the fact that she *is* the exceptionally capable – singed hair or not – Lady Sybil! LOL)
Yes, it almost felt as though I’d lost someone I knew when I heard the news – daft, I know.
Amongst my Nanny Ogg cookbooks (oops) and We R Igors, notefilled-diary, I even have two signed copies of Jingo (my boyfriend at the time (1997) knew how much I liked Pratchett’s stuff and ordered me a lovely signed hardback as a surprise – only for me to insist on going to the signing with my already-read paperback version!)
I hadn’t got around to reading A slip of the Keyboard, it now sits on my bookshelf as I haven’t quite got the heart to open it, yet.
A Discworld shaped hole has indeed been left, along with a Sir Terry Pratchett one.

Hi Charlotte,
Thank you for your comment, especially about the Vimes blog post. If I could write a couple half as fabulous as Sam and Sybil I’ll be overjoyed. I felt genuinely distraught when I heard the news. I went to a TP tribute cake and tea afternoon the other week in aid of Alzheimer’s research which felt like a fitting tribute and took along all my signed copies to share around.

Oh a tea party tribute is such a lovely thing to have done, especially your books. It really is such a ruddy awful disease, all round, he did a wonderful job of de-stigmatising it.
Yes, definitely with you on the Sam/Sybil dynamic.
You came across as such a nice person that I’ve just had to purchase Falling For Her Captor (clever old Harlequin/M&B – eh?!) – already chapter 3 and by ‘eck it’s fabulously fast-paced and gripping – LOL
So huge congrats again!
