1. A wonderful, brilliant, hugely popular, best selling author I respect and admire has read my book and given me a wonderful quote for the cover--which I can't talk about yet but will soon!
2. Sharon Kay Penman (who wrote the fantastic Here Be Dragons Welsh trilogy and the fantastic Henry and Eleanor of Aquitaine series Time and Chance and The Devil's Brood) mentioned me on her website! Yipee!
3. I am past page 200 on my galley edits!
4. I discovered what Restoration face lotion was really made of. As I am a face lotion junkie I really wanted to know what Nell put on her face and I had discovered all the ingredients except one--apple cider vinegar. The other ingredients were a very destructive combination of lead (yikes), chalk (not so moisturizing), and some other nasty, nasty stuff. Water was far too dangerous a substance to use so...vinegar?
