Well, that was fun.

Thanks to everyone who came up with names for the new gadgets.

The camera is going to be "Rosie" and the Sony eReader "Kitty". Thanks to Lois and Ginette for those - an advance copy of SOS: Convenient Husband Required (retail July in the States, August in the UK, September in Oz and New Zealand) will be in the post to them as soon as I have their snail mail addies.

I'm feeling pretty rosy about this book, actually, having just heard that Romantic Times have given it a stonking 4.5 star rating. Here's what they say: -

"The premise isn’t new, but Fielding’s deft handling of it is a triumph. The characters are fabulous, the relationship between them complex and nuanced…and keep a tissue handy at the end!"

I'm also going to be featured on the Romantic Times blog, talking about A Wedding at Leopard Tree Lodge (out now!) and my time in Botswana - I'll post a link when it goes live.

Right now I'm having a lovely time researching ice cream for the new book.

The history of ice cream. Vintage ice creams vans. And ice cream recipes - imagine me smiling here.

Talk amongst yourselves. I may be some time... :)

Look forward to reading your latest.

Your research is always impeccable, so really want to know what you find out about ice cream.

Congratulations on your excellent review.

Congrats on another great review! I love ice cream, it's an addiction of mine so combine that with reading... I can't wait.

Thanks, Margaret!

I have to admit that some research is just plain fun. :)
