Uncle Albert' in Churwell. It was fascinating meeting people who remembered the original characters behind the fictional ones in some of the stories - specially to hear that the shop Aunt Clara ran in reality was always known as 'Clara's shop' to the locals. The houses where some of the stories are set no longer exist though, having been knocked down and new buildings put up where they used to be. So we didn't get a chance to try to find any of the toy soldiers the Babe Magnet had buried (with full military honours!) way back when . . .
Saturday evening was spent at a wonderful, joyous, laughter-filled production of Kiss Me Kate by Opera North - fantastic singing and fabulous dancing. A very special evening. And a little trip down memory lane as the theatre was where we went on out very first date. . . one or two years ago!!
If you buy your M&B romances from the Harlequin Mills and Boon web site, then the newest titles are available from today, That means that if you can't wait for your copy of Destined for the Desert King to be on the bookshop shelves, then you can find a copy of the book on the M&B site right now.
I took a look at the site just now and delighted to find that, after just one day,my book is already at #4 in the Top Ten Bestsellers chart - that made my day.
Mind you, the same page also told me that it's just seven weeks till Christmas - help! Good job I took the opportunity to do some shopping in Leeds!
