Written on the Wind - part two

This week in my North Yorks moors serial, Annie is baffled by beautiful Luke and reacquaints herself with Celtic trees.

I love the illustration for part two: the way it waterfalls down the side of the page and pools in the bottom corner.

What Annie doesn't ever get to have - in print anyway - is one of my favourite things from Whitby: Botham's gingerbread loaf. Firm, dry but soft, melts in the mouth and intensely gingery. Exactly how gingerbread always used to be. Much consumption went into the writing of this serial.

13th March issue should be on sale Wed 7th or Thurs 8th this week.

Enjoyed part two, Jan! Love the Celtic trees. It's great when the illustration enhances the story so much, isn't it!
I've blogged about that, too. The illustration for my latest PF Special story is fantastic.
Looking forward to part three of 'Written on the Wind'.

I love all Botham's products but most espescially the gingerbread! Congratulations on your serial.
