The Novelistas seem to find any excuse to celebrate these days. We're becoming dangerously accustomed to champagne and homemade cakes. But it's a tribute to our hard-working, determined and talented writers that our excuses are, on the whole, rather valid.
Juliet Greenwood has received much acclaim for her first novel with Honno Press, 'Eden's Garden', a moving, atmospheric, time-slip story. But not content with the beautiful paperback version, it was released on Kindle and soared into the historical fiction charts. To celebrate its success she baked a luscious chocolate cake. The Novelistas had to stoically resign themselves to expanding their waistlines and quaffing yet more champagne. *Sigh*
Although we were down to nine this month, we didn't let that stop us. We never do. Funny that. But we always miss the members who can't be with us. Hopefully we'll have a full house next month, when we'll be celebrating . . . um . . . Halloween or something.

Bye for now!
Love the NW Novelistas x
