  1. Thank you so much Helen, Cathy and Tamian! I'm delighted to see my book cover is a runner up and has gained an honourable mention. What a lovely surprise. Many congratulations to Theresa Tomlinson as a well deserved winner, and to Susan Appleyard as my fellow runner up. Kit Foster will be pleased when I tell him.

    1. The pleasure was ours, Millie! Kit's design for your cover is expertly laid out. Well done!

  2. You are most welcome Millie. Your designer did a great job! It was a tough choice.
