First, thanks for the excellent write-up re the history of the Plunderers – a beloved group here on the blog – in yesterday’s comments.

Second, it great to see Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge on this list. Today is when I’m supposed to announce it. I may have jumped the gun on this earlier. But many thanks to the Women’s National Book Association.

I’m sorry that this move is turning out to be a headache for many of you. This is frustrating and I hope the problems get solved very soon. I myself don’t have the knowhow to do it personally or I would! Patience, please.

Meanwhile I’m delighted to see Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge on this list.

Linda Price comments on Up On The Woof Top: Ariadne was such a great character with a lot of depth. I would love to see her in another book. Maybe she could somehow have a little visit into their lives sometime 😁 it must’ve been a lot of fun as a writer to use Bernie to explore writing.” 

Ah, yes (Dame Ariadne Carlisle is the bestselling British author of 99 Christmas mysteries, now stuck for the first time on #100). So I knew we’d have to see a snatch or two of her writing, as long as it kept our own story moving. I didn’t realize Bernie – the detective, for newcomers to the series – would be taking a swing at it too! Yes, that was fun – and there’s certainly some meta fiction going on Up On The Woof Top. But not intrusively I hope. And I reigned Bernie in as new I could. There’s such a thing as the writer having too much fun and the reader less.

Meanwhile it’s nice to see Mrs. Plansky’s Revenge on this list:
