A Winner, a Guest, and 2 New Bookmarks

A-Winner Debbie K., you have won a copy of Shobhan Bantwal's The Sari Shop Widow.  Please send your mailing address to Sherrie, and we'll forward it to Shobhan.  Congratulations, Debbie.

On Friday, Oct. 16, Susie Felber, Edith Layton's daughter, ToLoveWickedLord will visit the Wenches to talk about Edith's last book, To Love a Wicked Lord (Avon, 10/27), completed shortly before she passed away earlier this year.  This will be a bittersweet reunion.  We're delighted Susie will visit us again, even though we wish Edith could be here in person.

Last week we posted two new bookmarks (Nicola Cornick and Edith Layton) for you to download.  Just go to the Additional Pages sidebar on the right and click on Printable Bookmarks #6.  Thanks as always to our talented Cara/Andrea for designing these bookmarks.

Guests and a New Feature

Good morning!  We have a fun October planned for our readers here at the Word Wenches, starting with:ShobhanBantwal

Oct. 9 – Mary Jo will interview guest Shobhan Bantwal.  Shobhan refers to her stories as "Bollywood in a book."  Her books are romantic, colorful, action-packed tales that are rich with elements of Indian culture.

ToLoveWickedLord Oct. 16 – Susie Felber, Edith Layton's daughter, will visit the Wenches to talk about Edith's last book, To Love a Wicked Lord (Avon, 10/27), completed shortly before she passed away earlier this year. 

Oct. 19 – Ask-a-Wench debuts.  Each month, we will take one (or more) question(s) posed by our readers and discuss these questions in a blog.  Questions can come from any number of sources:  from your replies left in the comments section, from our master list of blog topics suggested by readers, and even from your e-mails.  (To submit questions via e-mail, send a message to our site manager/den mother, Sherrie Holmes.)  Anne will be hosting the first Ask-a-Wench, and has already chosen a few related questions gleaned from readers.  Other Wenches may contribute to AAW posts, depending on the questions.  We enjoy interacting with our readers and felt this would be a great opportunity for lively discussion.

So mark your calendars!  We have a busy October lined up.
