Are You Out There?

The Scots have this thing where they say Happy New Year to you the first time they see you in the new year, not just on the day. So from the slightly more than 5o% of me which is Scottish (based on years of my life lived in said fine country), "Happy New Year!"

2007, The Big Year, has begun as more of a gentle trickle than anything avalanche or torrent-like, but I couldn't ask for a nicer review than this one, to be found on the Waterstones website:

"Bookseller review



Bryn, Maddie and Cam think they're just a normal boy, girl and…well… Cam hasn’t quite decided what it's going to be yet. They're all quite happy on their 3 different worlds until they're summonded to the London House, which doesn't quite reside on any one of the 3 worlds. Here they discover they are The Questors - born with the purpose of saving the worlds when they reach the age of 25. Unfortunately, the worlds need saving about 10 years early! A brilliant fantasy adventure with great humourous undertones, I couldn't stop chuckling, and absorbing characters, I defy anyone who wouldn't want a Nan like Mrs Mac. Children and adults alike will love it."

Obviously a woman of discernment and impeccable taste.

So here's your task now, Globbers - go into your local bookshop, where'er that may be, and find out if Questors is there yet. If it is, give it a maternal pat from me, then make sure it's been put someplace really prominent, preferably full face. Or you could just buy it. That'd be nice too.

But ...


Let me know what you find! Cheers, Joan.

Checked out the St Andrews Waterstones this afternoon - they had 5 copies which are all sold, and are expecting 50 more by Wednesday. I have therefore scheduled some mid-week lurking into my diary...
