Anne here, confessing that in the past few months I've been remiss in my duties to my guests.
When I hosted Jeane Westin, author of the Elizabethan Historical Novel, THE VIRGIN'S DAUGHTERS, as a guest here on Word Wenches, I thanked her, but I forgot to usherJeane into the ranks of that very exclusive group, Honorary Word Wenches.
Jeane, thank you so much for joining us on Word Wenches. The insights you gave us into the Elizabethan court were fascinating and I'm sure by now many or our readers have read and enjoyed THE VIRGIN'S DAUGHTERS. For your wenchly gift I scoured the net and found you this beautiful embroidered Elizabethan style ruff, made by Amanda Kettlewell of the Embroiderers Guild.
Linda Fildew, thank you also for enlightening our wenchly readers about the delights of Harlequin Historical novels, in all their forms, and how to submit manuscripts. I know many of our readers were delighted to find a new source of books, and some new authors. I am delighted to usher you into the ranks of Honorary Word Wenches.
Since I know you're the adventurous traveller type, I've chosen for your gift a trip to the Australian Outback, in the selfish hope that I'll get to catch up with you again.
As Honorary Word Wenches, you are both, of course, entitled to put the initials H.W.W. after your name, to impress some and mystify others. <G>
