Avery nice thing happened today. someone I don't know sent me an e-mail. Nothing strange in that, you may say; but this lady complimented my writing. To be more precise, she said:
"Just finished reading Far After Gold which I loved and couldn't put it down. I did a module on the Vikings at Aberystwyth University and loved visiting the world of Flane and Emer. It was interesting to focus on what it would have been like to be abducted as a slave and own only the clothes you happened to be wearing. I thought your comparison between Emer and Katla who in the end were both exchanged for silver very interesting.

I look foward to reading more of your books in the future."
Needless to say, this gave me huge encouragement! I won't put the lady's name here in case that would embarrass her, but I certainly send her my thanks!

Congratulations! It's terrific when someone writes in to say they've enjoyed a book you've written - guaranteed to make you smile for the rest of the day :-)
