"You're welcome, Anne. I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to your review. I'm afraid it's out of print now but perhaps when you review you could mention that it's now available on Kindle? I also have some copies myself."
"Oh, well said, Kate! Yes, indeed, Amazon (and other) reviews always gratefully received. :-)))
I've only recently realised how important both the number and quality of Amazon reviews are (ie 4- & 5-star.) Amazon sets a lot of store by them…"
You've won the e-book of UNTYING THE KNOT. :-)
I need an email address to send you a Kindle gift certificate. Can you let me have one via a msg here or on Facebook or in an email.
I assume you shop at Amazon UK? If not let me know…"
"Yes, me too! That's what I miss the most, I think, when I go south - the accents and the light.
I once enjoyed a romantic interlude with a Scottish climber who recited all the Gaelic names of the Cuillin mountains on Skye, as a form of…"
"I agree - but oh, don't get me started! I taught in what (in a less PC age) was called a dustbin school and it was clear to me that what a lot of my pupils needed was a good square meal. A pre-school Breakfast Club could have made a world of…"

Linda, what a super webpage you have. Amazing photographs. As I'm living in Perthshire currently, I'm looking forward to seeing how it features in Untying the Knot.
I read your bio and detect similarities. I too have done a little in the acting profession (emphasis on little!), I too retrained as a teacher, shall we say, later than most... I have written (briefly) for a magazine (not quite journalism), have grown up children. Or is it just a few degrees of separation? Now there's a theme for a novel. Mine Haha
