  1. Thanks for the shout out – it’s 3:30 a.m. your time. I sure hope you get some sleep. Just be yourself tomorrow or later today – and you’ll do fine ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Thanks honey,

      He he he, sneaky Rustic ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Well, I went ok, I’m glad I did it, proud of myself actually! Yeah, it was definitely an experience! I’ll be posting all about it on Monday!



  2. Thank you thank you thank you yet again! I’ll gladly take up the challenge although it may take me a little while to get organised! My question for you echoes your other commenters: HOW DID YOU DO? And my second question is: WHAT DID YOU DO AFTEWARDS??? XXX Rock on, Vikki, you are officially the Award Queen!


    • You’re very welcome Nicky ๐Ÿ™‚

      How did I do? Ok lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

      What did I do afterwards? Go to the pub, then onto a bar where I bought a bottle of champers and we divided it between 8 of us and I made a speech/toast which went along the lines of….

      “I started the Faber course with a novel, and ended it without one (sniggers), but, it’s been great fun, I’ve learnt a lot, and of course, met you guys (gestured to my fellow students). I wish you all good luck for the future.” We then spent several minutes making sure everyone had clinked their glasses ๐Ÿ™‚



  3. Congratulations on your awards and thank you, so much, for nominating me for one of them. I do hope your presentation went supremely well today and your hands weren’t shaking too much. Wow, what an opportunity to pitch your novel to that many agents at once! Am I allowed to be a teeny-weeny bit jealous? Can’t wait to hear how you got on.


  4. Thanks for nominating me Vikki! And fingers, toes, arms, legs, everything crossed for you today! Love and hugs, Edith xoxox
