A Wenchly Au Revoir…

Cat 243 Dover "The world is too much with us, night and day," which is why our Wench Edith is going on hiatus.  She's too swamped to post today so I'm filling in.  Hopefully she'll be aable to take a proper curtain call later. 

I shall miss Edith's wonderfully witty posts, but I'd miss her wonderful books even more, so I shall wish her fingers fast typing, and I'm blowing Daisy Dog a kiss.

One the plus side, now I can mention that on Friday, we have a very special guest: Sue Grimshaw, the romance buyer for Borders, will be paying us a visit to talk about how she sees the market, and what treats Borders has in store for readers. 

(Brief Pause while Wench removes Fluffy Cat from keyboard, a process said feline much resents.)

Pacific Northwest Oct. 2008 008 So see you on Friday–and on May 1st, a new Wench will join us for fresh views and voices–

Mary Jo, adding a rose because the April showers outside are supposed to bring us May flowers, right?

  6. ACK! Edith, you’re leaving us?
    *sigh* I understand. Sacrifice for art’s sake, and you do your ‘art’ so well.
    I know you’ll be back though, so that’s a good thing.
    In the meantime, need…more…books! 😛

    Yep, and May flowers are closely followed by gaggles of pilgrims, I believe 😉
    (sorry, can never resist a pun)

  16. You’ll be missed, Edith. But when the choice is blogs or books, I always vote for books. I look forward to reading many more of yours.

  21. We will miss you Edith. I’ve always been amazed that any of you find the time to blog, because I know how much time it takes to actually write an article for a blog and still find time to get other things done. Good luck to all of you.

  26. Oh Edith! your departure makes me sad- but your books have made me so happy that I know you need the time for them. I had never read your books before I met you through this blog-now I have all of your more recent works on my “keeper” shelf, and have even been the lucky winner of two autographed copies( I’ve been with this blog for a long, long time!) Though I will never meet any of the wenches in person, I feel like you are all my special on-line friends. Please check back in with us from time to time.

  31. Oh, dearest Edith, how I will miss you and your wit. But MJ’s right, I’d miss your beautifully spun stories even more. You have taught me so much, Lady Layton. Every moment I spend at my writing desk, I endeavor to be worthy of those lessons. Know you hold a very special place in my heart and on my bookshelf.
    Many, many hugs. Nina

    When Edith has the time to read these lovely comments, I know they’ll make her very, very happy.
    Luckily, we hope to have her back soon, perhaps as a demi-wench rather than full time. (She’s tackling a new trilogy, which Take Major Time!)
