Kind words to kick off a wonderful day.

Another review for my latest novella, His Chosen Bride kicked off what turned out to be one of those precious days 'out of time'.

"...As an experienced and accomplished author Sherry has seamlessly combined the two individual stories about the eldest and youngest of the Gasquet princes, whilst managing to keep the separate identities of both books. She has also carefully crafted the two middle princes into this story, thereby leaving the door open for further episodes in the series, at the same time giving herself the option to leave the series at just the two books and move on to pastures new..."

Why was yesterday - the 4th may '12 so very special? Well to answer that question I have to go back (I discovered with horror! LOL) thirteen years ;-)

That was when I met and made a new 'net' friend, Lesley, or as I know her - Lea.  This is a friendship that spans the globe, as I am in the UK and Lea is in Australia.  For a while we met online weekly with a group of other friends until MSN dismantled the private chat groups globally.

That didn't stop us emailing each other as and when we felt like it.  You know the kind of friendship that allows you to meet months and years apart and yet take up where you left off as though you'd just finished chatting minutes/hours ago?  That is the kind of friendship I'm talking of here. :-0

Lea invited me to visit if I ever made it onto her patch, but sadly it hasn't happened.
So a couple of years ago (unbeknownst to me) Lea started saving and yesterday we met up in the UK and had the most wonderful day together.

Lea also introduced me to her two wonderful friends, Denise and her husband Roy who were part of making it possible for Lea and me to meet up, so my thanks, again, to them both for being part of what is and will be a treasured memory for years to come.
