I promise to respond. I would be very happy to review products, services or events (a girl can dream, after all…) that I think are relevant to my life and so which I could review honestly and with integrity. I am proud of what I write here on this site so my readers can be reassured that what I write, I truly believe.

On that note, I hope to be speaking with you one of these days.

Bye for now,

  1. Hello! I have really enjoyed reading your blog and I just nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! You can read more here: Cheers Her x : o )

  2. Hello, I was just wondering about your Jill collection. I also grew up on these books and loved them. I have a full collection of hard cover with dust jackets Horder and Broughton publications. 2 I had to buy ( one was missing and one I had was a paperback). Do you know if these have any value as collector items ? Some of the single editions are selling for $50 plus dollars !!

    • Hello Ann, it sounds like a lovely collection! The value of the books depends on the condition of the book and the edition. If they’re all Hodder and Stoughton true first editions, in very good condition with very good dust covers, then they would probably be of interest to a collector. At the moment, individual books in that condition are selling for roughly £80 – £90 each, perhaps a whole collection in that condition might raise more. I think the best advice I can give you is to speak with a specialist dealer, such as Jane Badger Books who deal in pony books. Of course if you sold to a dealer you might raise less yourself, as they’re selling them at the prices I quoted above and would need to make their profit! What a lovely collection you have though, I’m hoping to collect a full set myself, a book at a time! 🙂

  3. Hi! Sounds like a bit of moving on, to be changing the way you blog. All to the good, but do you really have to lose all the backcopy you have done? Can’t you archive it, or your favourite bits at least?. You have real talent as a writer and, while I accept that the electronic world can be synonymous with ephemeral, you may need/want to look back or retrieve some of it, either as source material for future writing, or to judge how you have improved or changed. I know Stephen likes to chuck everything away and have a clean slate, but what you have written is a part of your oeuvre, so don’t dispose of it lightly! perhaps the happy medium between hoarding and minimalism?

    • Hello! I’m going to be working with my new web hosting to move across all my posts to the new blog, so all my archives will be saved. I’m also saving it separately too – was even thinking of printing some favourite posts and binding them together as a keepsake. Nothing should be lost if it all goes according to plan. So, fingers crossed! Thank you so much for the compliment about my writing, I really appreciate it!
