I’m on call for jury duty, and while I wouldn’t mind sitting through a trial, this kind of thing never comes at a convenient time. So, I thought I’d see how long we’ve been plugged into a jury system. Continue reading

Susanna sends her apologies. She's had a bit of an emergency and can't comment on the blog right now. But it looks like y'all are doing just fine! I decided long ago that prologues depend on the kind of story I'm writing. My saga-ish stories demanded prologues. But in my lighter stories, I need to dive right into the action, because that's where the mood is. One will notice which kind Leonard writes.

Wow, I'll have to copy this out and start perusing the shelves! The wenches are great fans of Lee and Miller and devour the Liaden Universe books. You should check out Dorothy Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey books if you enjoy the Liaden Universe. They're quite wry and amusing in the same way. Thank you for giving us so much to look at!

LOL on everyone wanting to marry the same person! That's a good observation. And I think certain situations appeal to different people. I find marrying a prince or billionaire a big yawn, but show me a poor person working his way to the big time, and I'm all over it.

Loretta is the best cure for a reading slump! I just dived into my old Jenny Crusie's to cure mine. And Julia Fleming is a wench favorite!

I think Amazon may be glitching. It's been doing that a lot lately. I put the title and author name in the search screen and it goes to a page, then it reverts to someone else's book. And now it's frozen.

Oh, I haven't read Janet in a long time. I hadn't even realized she had a title like mine! Of course, my Mystic Warrior had nothing to do with the Highlands. ;)

Wasn't Scoundrel marvelous? I don't know how she does it-so simple but so emotional! And I think your suggestions will probably appeal to quite a few people. It's finding the time to hunt them down and read them that's my problem. I'm sorry, though, I don't recognize Mary Garratt at all!

The ability to bring out all those old books in digital is a modern miracle, isn't it? I wept when I had to leave all my paper copies behind, but I'm enjoying having the ebooks always at hand!

yes, we were fortunate to have sunny nice days. I'm not really up for grim and drippy. Those streets would really be dangerous!

As someone says above, it's better to go in "off" season. I didn't have a choice because we were there for a conference. Mid July was definitely not the time to go!

it's so very difficult to squeeze so much fascinating info into a very tiny blog!

yes, the beginning or end of tourist season would have been better, but we were there because of a conference and didn't have that option. I'm a serious introvert, so crowds really bother me. I can understand the concern about squeezing in more hotels and people, but I'm going to guess that preventing hotels simply means the ones already there will charge through the roof. ;)

The crowds are truly horrific and spoiled the Castle, even though we took a tour that got us past the lines. And we saw nothing Outlander either, although we heard all about Ann Cleves and the show about her mysteries when we were in the north.

The kilts and bagpipes are amazingly impressive. And it's so haunting to hear the pipes over the hustle and bustle of the city.

you would have really loved the monument, then. It's very accessible.

Oh, I want to see the Tattoo too! They had the stands all set up in the courtyard but it was weeks away. We should meet at the Tattoo!
