I too will be muchly interested to see what the final product has that the original didn't! More Hilda, I hope! :devil: Congratulations, Lisa.


Do you know, I can't actually remember. :shock: I think there might be a little more Hilda than the early drafts, and I know there's definitely more Madge, 'cos that was a GGBP request. Plus, Hilda's in my favourite chapter - it's Ruth's favourite too - and it's a bit insane but I loved writing it. I wonder if people will be able to guess which chapter it is? :lol:

I'm still waiting for my copies, but rather glad they didn't arrive today as I managed to acquire what I think was my first migraine. Between me and the shop, though, I'd hope for something by Saturday. *chewing fingernails, most reprehensibly*

*g* There's a decent amount of OOAO, but hopefully not too much. 'Sides, she's still at the cute stage AND is still not technically a leader - although she's moving in that direction. That makes her OK, right? :D

Lucky for you! We're still waiting for our copies, though I won't be surprised if there's a 'Sorry you were out' note when I get home. Glad you enjoyed it! :mrgreen:

I received my copy on Friday and read it yesterday. I know it's been a long time coming but it was so worth the wait, I think it is one of the best fill-ins I've read! Well done Lisa, now re-reading Island and I love the way you developed all of those little hints about Annis and her antics in the previous term.

I'm still waiting for my copy :(

Just had a panic attack and checked with my emails that I did, in fact, actually order it.

GGBP seem to be taking a long time getting this book out.
