  1. Fantastic event! What a great idea, editors and agents as team captains. Whose team would you be on?

  2. I'm really looking forward to this, but be warned everyone, I am a very competitive quizzer!

  3. Sharpened pencils at the ready!


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
