DARN IT! Shot my bolt with the last post.

Oh well...

And the book short-listed for a Short Contemporary RITA is






I used the US cover this time, so that you'd have something different to look at. And because it is soooo much better!

and

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

I know, in the UK we're out of step with Hallmark, but here we celebrate Mother's Day or what, when I was a little girl, was called Mothering Sunday, on the 4th Sunday in Lent (which means it's not on the same day each year, either!)

Mothering Sunday is based on an old tradition when girls "in service" were allowed to go home to visit their mothers. They baked a cake and took it home with them and on the way picked wild flowers -- traditionally primroses. .



These are flowering in my garden.

But hopefully, in acouple of months, when we've all forgotten about the title to the post below, you'll be able to post another 'And the winner is . . ' For Mattie and RITA

I've congratulated you before but it's worth doing again -

CONGRATULATIONS!! - it couldn't happen to a nicer book (or a nicer author)

Extra congratulations, because really you can never enjoy the sweeter moments in life too much.

I have primroses flowering in my garden, too. Aren't they wonderful? Yellow primroses and daffodils heralding the arrival of Spring - one of my favourite scenes.

I wonder why the UK book covers aren't as nice as the US ones? I know I'd feel far more attracted to them with the US covers. I mean, I read them anyway, but if I didn't...

Sharon, I prefer the US covers, too. The larger picture helps, I think, and it's a less cluttered.
