Also discovered that the same book is out in the UK in January 2010 as a hardback. Fantastic news... I can't wait to hold my first ever hardback in my hands.
Finally had some sun here in the UK (and about time too). It's glorious here in Wiltshire, the heart of Thomas Hardy country... Which unfortunately makes it even more of a struggle to sit down and work on my ms. Still, at least this one is set in the summer. Got some fabulous tips about places to stay and see in Florence from some friends who lived there for years. Have to admit I'm kinda tempted to go visit and check them out for real (all in the name of research you understand)!!
