A Peak Time ‘Valley of the Dolls’ Delay…

Apologies are called for this morning if you are eagerly awaiting a lovely Reading With Authors book group with me and Paul Magrs today discussing ‘Valley of the Dolls’. I was looking forward to us all bombarding Paul’s lovely summer house together, the power of the internet and imagination hey, but there’s a small technical glitch…

You see I rather misjudged the length of the book and slightly how gripping it might be (I struggled to start with but it got much much better). So this meant I didn’t email Paul everything before I left for the Peak District (where signal is a bit rubbish) I did it last night.

Hopefully though we will still be having afternoon tea at Paul’s summer house later or maybe for supper if I can get to the internet proper (3G isn’t great to post) between seeing my cousin Alfie playing cricket and meeting up with an author in the flesh…

Yes, randomly after I reviewed ‘Forgetting Zoe’ by Ray Robinson he emailed me to say thanks and asked if I knew Matlock. Know it, I’m from it!! So while I am here we are going to go in search of places for a good murder, I’ll explain that properly when I report back, and grab a pint. What a small bookish world eh?

Oh and because I like posts with pictures heres the view from my bedroom window this morning of Riber Castles ruins in the sun…

Hopefully I’ll manage to virtually (I always want to say virally) get to Paul’s later and see you all there! What are you doing in the real world this weekend?
