This is the most fantastic news! Okay, I’ve known for a while – just been sworn to secrecy but now that the news it out, I can share it. Well, try to anyway. I’m so excited I can hardly type. My hands are even shaking.

Melanie Robertson-KingMelanie is coming to Scotland! And best of all, she’s coming to Kendonald and is having a book launch in the village hall on 17 August. Isn’t that fab?

And she’s got a date at the Central Library in Aberdeen, too. Not sure of the date and time yet, but things are going so well for her right now, I couldn’t be happier. Well, maybe I could. She could get her skates on and finish her second book. But that’s another story.

I’ll be crossing the days off on my calendar with big red Xs counting down to the big day.

She’s hoping for a great turnout at both events, so please help me spread the word.




Wow! I can’t believe I almost missed this. The Historical Novelists’ Book Fair ends on 15th April. I’m really glad I didn’t sign up for it because I almost missed the boat entirely. Besides, I’m only a character so I don’t think I could sign up. Oh well, at least my creator, Melanie Robertson-King, took part. You can see her entry on her blog Celtic Connexions.

Other great authors are taking part, too, so you can click on the Historical Novelists’ Book Fair badge at the top of this post and it will take you to the page where everyone has signed up. There are lots of brill books there, but I have to admit being partial to A Shadow in the Past by Melanie. Hmmm… wonder why?


Guest posts…

Both my creator, Melanie, and I have been guests on blogs today. I did an interview with Kai Strand at her blog Strands of Thought. You can read my interview here.

While I was off in America with Kai, Melanie was the featured author over at Famous Five Plus You can read about Melanie here.

I hope you’ll stop by both blogs and find out a bit more about us. Look forward to seeing you there!
