Aunt Epp's Guide for Life is 99p at the moment. Discovered after her death, it's an excellent conpendium of advice from a wonderful scottish lady. Great fun and very good value.

Karen Dolby's Orangea and Lemons is also 99p and is a nice llttle book about nursery rhymes and their origins. It reminded me of the CS scene where the girls are very ignorant about the subject<g> Includes smoe charmng illustrations and also very good value.

Am I allowed to plug my first Kindle offering? :D Have just relaunched my first ever published novel, Scuba Dancing, as an ebook. It's a romantic comedy rather than the cosy mysteries I now write. Read all about it on my blog which you can find by checking out the signature under my post!

Sorry to spree but today's Daily Deal looks like a nice one for dragon-lovers.....Tooth and Claw - with an impressive list of supportive reviews from other writers....

Sealpuppy - I spent 3pence over my self-imposed Kindle limit to take your book and am very pleased I did so. There are a couple of astonishingly funny scenes in it which made me laugh out loud. A rare event when I'm reading :D

How nice of you, Cestina, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D I meant to set the price at £1.99 which seemed sensible but had to set it in dollars and the exchange rate seems to have twiddled about with it.

I can recommend Tooth and Claw. It's hilarious. It's like the Regency world on steroids, and all the characters are dragons.

I'll add that to my holiday list! I can recommend Lydia Bennet's Blog by Valerie Laws, great fun and quite plausible. I'll certainly never look at Charlotte Lucas in the same light! :wink:

I've just invested in Tooth and Claw - sounds good! I'm quite a fan of Katie MacAlister's dragon books but I suspect this won't be quite the same.

I read Scuba Dancing when I first met you on the board, sealpuppy, and enjoyed it. It was the only book of yours our library had at the time although I got them to buy at least one more!

I'll never look at 'knitting one for myself' in the same light either, having just read Scuba Dancing! :shock: :shock:

:D Just giggled at that and then had to explain to SLOC. He has read the book (the only one of mine so far) but didn't remember the context.

I just bought and read Scuba Dancing in one evening and loved it! Nice, light relief and your characters were so well-drawn. Now to struggle through a day of revision on little sleep after staying up late to finish it... :)

I've bought it too - plan to read it at the weekend while my husband runs around the cliffs in Exmoor.
Be interested to know how many sales you get through the CBB :)

Tell me, Sealpuppy, is the other Nicola Slade Kindle book by you as well - about making music in your bedroom? Must say I thought it was about something else entirely until I clicked the link :wink:

I know, you're not the first! She is, or was, a music journalist but I've often had a giggle at the idea of her musically minded fans discovering they're reading a book that contains what a sniffy critic once called 'geriatric erotica'! ('tisn't, btw).

Thank you so much, lovely CBBers for saying such nice things about Scuba. :D

It was lovely, a really sweet read and laugh out loud funny in spots (although I didn't fall off my chair in true Chalet fashion). I can't understand why one critic said it was unrealistic :D .
