Weekly Announcements - 28 March 08

Sandra Schwab's April release BEWITCHED has received a great review from SandyM of The Good, the Bad and the Unread:

I know a love potion in a romance story is not new ground, but when Sandra Schwab gets hold of a worn-out plot like that, she breathes new life into it. This author never disappoints me. Her books are always innovative and, of course, romantic, and her characters are alive and real. Bewitched is no exception. [...] Bewitched by Sandra SchwabOnce again Ms Schwab has given us a romance filled with joy and strife, characters you fall for right away and root for when things go awry, and a storyline with writing so different from anyone else. It's the little extras in her books that make you keep turning page after page.
Sandra has also launched a new podcast on British literature and history: Books, Cats and Me. Join her on a journey through British history from the ice age to Maggie Thatcher in the next nine episodes! Who were the Beaker People? What was decided at the Synod of Whitby? How do you get rid of a troublesome archbishop? Who was James I's "humble slave and dog"? Listen to Books, Cats & Me and find out!
