Now, I know I said in my last post that I don’t mind working weekends but the last two have been the exception. Yesterday, I had a trip to the National Portrait Gallery to meet the lovely author, Jane Odiwe. Jane writes Austen sequels and I love her novel, Willoughby’s Return. We met in the gorgeous gallery shop and then visited the tiny portrait of Jane Austen by her sister, Cassandra.
It was then on to meet another Austen author, Amanda Grange, whose books, Darcy’s Diary and Mr Darcy, Vampyre are huge bestsellers and thumping good reads! Here’s a pic of us all. We all share the same US publisher, Sourcebooks, and it was really lovely to meet up at last.
Another weekend treat was seeing a true hero of mine in concert – Chris Isaak! I’ve been a huge fan of Chris’s for years and love his music. He was performing songs from his new album, Mr Lucky, and lots of the old favourites too like San Francisco Days and Wicked Game. As readers of Molly’s Millions might remember, my hero, Tom Mackenzie, is a big Chris Isaak fan too!
Here he is in his fabulous glitterball suit!
