Congratulations Valpot

on winning DNOTY 2007. You deserved it. You deserved it 2004, 2005 and 2006, and finally you have been recognised for your genius. HURRAY!
Regarding the book of the year, I think you were robbed. Revenge of Queen Rose was the best book on the list - in terms of plot, character, originality, writing style, readability. I am a great fan of the Lucky Diamond, don't get me wrong, but Revenge of Queen Rose has all the LD has, and a little bit more. I think the fact that so few people have read it went against you when it came to the vote.

Thanks, Inkpot - but I can't agree that I deserve it more than you, Mungo, Marvin or Parsley!

Thanks too for the rave (and undeserved)review of RQR - I must reread it myself and get it polished up.

Ging to get my own blg set up, hopefully over the next few days!

To VT - You think you are undeserving because you are modest, and you don't give yourself enough credit. You should reread RQR, I think I will do so soon as well, it is so good. I will prob read the LD and RQR back to back as a treat. Looking forward to reading your new blog.
