Here is the cover for Susanna Forrest's long awaited book:
It's out in March 2012, and you can read more about it here: Susanna says it far better than I ever could so have wimpishly not attempted to summarise.
Linda Newbery has written about the danger of horses, and some of what was going on in her mind when she wrote The Damage Done.
And if you like commercials, there are some gems here at Fran Jurga's The Jurga Report.
And at Piccalilli Pie, the purples of a North Western American autumn.
