Lucy Coats said...

Catherine Johnson said...

Dressing up and plenty of virtual cake!

Nicky Schmidt said...

Ooh, what fun, I love virtual events and virtual and real dressing up! Will there be cake and champagne? Real, not virtual!

Lucy Coats said...

Well, Nicky, we're being very 'green' by holding this festival online--so no travel, use of trees etc etc--it's the perfect carbon offset festival! So we'll be doing the celebrating wherever we are. Personally, I shall be raising a real glass of the bubbly stuff to toast all those brilliant ABBA authors, our readers, and a fab festival--and munching on some definitely unvirtual chocolate brownies.

I am so excited for this event :D

Deirdra Eden-Coppel said...

You have a fabulous blog! I’m an author and illustrator and I made some awards to give to fellow bloggers whose sites I enjoy. I want to award you with the Best Books Blog Award for all the hard work you do!

I invite you to follow me, if you haven’t already done so, since we have a lot in common, but no pressure. I’m not giving you the award just so you will follow me. You really do deserve it!
Take care:-)

Go to and pick up your award.
