Have I Got News For You

Yesterday has been an exciting day.  

The online party for the paperback launch of Playing On Cotton Clouds has been great fun. I asked my guests to bring their records with them and - with the aid of Youtube - we played some fabulous music from the 80s/90s/00s, the three decades that are the backdrop of the book. We had anything from Duran Duran to The Smiths, from Dire Straits to A-ha, from Peter Gabriel to Oasis, from House Dance to Italo-disco to Hard Rock to Madchester. It was a riot!

Thanks to all those who sent messages and posted links and spent time having a good laugh with me. 

To top the day, it was officially announced that my next book, A SUMMER OF LOVE, a love story set in a small village in Cornwall, will be published by Crooked Cat Publishing in January 2013.
I couldn't wait to tell everyone!

So, to keep the celebrations going, I'm going to play some more of my favourites today. 

What would you choose?


  1. Great party! Oooh, more faves? Nice one!

    How about 'Congratulations'? Though I don't think Cliff R is in my repertoire! ;-)

    1. Oh, dear... no maybe I'll pass on Cliff. But thanks for the sentiment!

  2. Has to be this, surely?!
