Back from hols, brown refreshed, the post opened, the e-mails scanned, the washing on the line, am DYING to rabbit on here but must be strict and go and do my 1,000 words and make clay statues first. Back later I hope.

In the meantime, I read this story in the newspaper over the weekend. Every author's worst nightmare, or what?

Good to see you are back! (I started at the top and worked down). The 'plagiarist' sounds like an Anne of Green Gables sort of girl, doesn't she. How very sad.
