I have also looked up your B&B, looks beyond fab.
Anyway, I find your writing hilarious, suited to a blog. You are v good at writing in excerpts / snippets. Do you use twitter? Basically you just need to get people following / liking / sharing and then further down the road when you have a proper blog following, you think about the book.”

I will become a successful (if not respected) author, if it kills me!
