    Love the patchworky thing. It’s got the look of a book I’d hone in on if I was browsing to buy……

    Yes you were right I do like her work. Will you get the original art work made in to a textile cover? That would be something to treasure holding your words safe. Enjoy this time my dear…see you at Hay! :0)

    Oh, these are so beautiful. They make me want to head off to a beach in Malta and take your book with me!

    The more images I see, the more I want to read Like Bees to Honey! I’ve already got my copy pre-ordered and there are only 92 days to go! Wooooot! Only three months! Surely I can wait that long?

    Sigh, probably not but I’m going to have to. Guess I’ll have to re-read your other novels while I’m waiting. Woot!

    I love them!!! Any chance of you getting to keep/buy any of the original textile work. I know you’d cherish it forever x

    Hello Caroline. I disappeared and now I am back. Is that good? I Hope so. Okay I need to reorient myself. Will you have me here? Are you sure?

    They are lovely. I can’t wait to see how they are all pulled together on your cover. :)

    Awww, thank you all for such lovely comments. I hope you can see why I’ve been so emotional about this cover xxx

    Cal – I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep/buy any of the original textile work, but you’re right, it’s something that would be utterly cherished. I love the bees very much.

    Jamieson – 3months, 1 day, 14 hours… and counting :)

    D-W – there was talk of something like that, but I don’t know if it’ll happen. I’m trying not to think about it, because if I want it then I’ll just be disappointed :) And Hay, alas no, I’m not ‘big’ enough… (and not in a good way) xxx
