From Paris with Love!

FestivalNicola here, fresh back from Paris and the amazing Festival du Roman Feminin, Festival of Women’s Fiction.

It was an opportunity to meet new-to-me authors as well as old friends, and also to have time to chat properly with readers in a relaxed way (chatting in Franglais and with the help of some awesome interpreters!)

(The photo is from the same bridge of the river at night and it's from Wikipedia.)
