I have looked and looked, and it seems like the same book. I am sure it is, but there are subtle differences that mark a new era.

The pentacle on the cover is slightly smaller, the purple is a shade lighter, but one thing stands out on the back cover and it made me smile and smile and smile -


I have crossed the pond, rather we have crossed the Atlantic Pond, me, and Derec, and of course that bloody witch, Dorcas.

Lovely, lovely American people, buy your copy here on
Amazon US

Like the first time I held the real, live book in my hands, I am not ashamed to say that I welled up. My mum and dad would have been so proud.

Love and light this Samhain - now have a drink with me.

I have enjoyed the Dorcas and her tale very much!

Here's wishing you every success!

More books to come or more tales from Dorcas?

Thank you, Seamus, a fine Frenchy wine I hope.

Oh lovely, Kat, tell everyone!

Nice to hear, CS, and still a little bit weird, I wonder if you ever get used to it?
The sequel is well underway, so who knows.

Feeling a bit deluxe, Leslie - I am very proud.

Hello, Mem, and thanks - hope you are feverless now.

Unknown said...

Cheers, Minx!
Now all I have to do is to get my copy of Dorcas's wanderings back from the friend I lent it to - seems that witch is traveling and traveling and traveling!

pundy said...

Well done, Minx, international bestsellerdom can only be just around the corner.

It's a little early in the morning as I write this to celebrate your achievement, but rest assured I'll have one or two on your behalf tonight.

Debi said...

L'chaim, dear Minxy.
To life and with love and light.

Unknown said...

Eh well better late than never. I'll have a drink as soon as I'm off the drugs. Meanwhile here's hoping you and your Dorcas do fabulously well over on that side of the pond.

Unknown said...

Vanilla, read the rules - no lending, only buying!

To life, Debi, and rememberence for Dina.

Thank you, V, go easy on the lemsip!

ps... how do i get mine autographed???

Unknown said...

Hi Red, to be signed the book will have to come from this end, purchased from Opening Chapter Publishers, which would mean a slightly higher cost. Failing that I could forward you a signed, dated, genuine, authentic bookplate to stick in the book yourself.
Let me know.

Fantastic news.



Unknown said...

Thanks, Pants, and you as well, Pund, seems I missed you out earlier!

Vesper said...

Wow! This is great news, Minx! Welcome to America! :-)

I was thinking that you do not have enough rings Ms. Minx, I shall look out for a few extras for you..

Unknown said...

Thank you, Vesper, I am loving your country!

That is very kind, Muts, I never have enough ringses (14 today). Make sure they are moon metal and not sun metal though, please.
