Er, Urban Fantasy Land seems to have presented HANDS OF FLAME as one of their possible ‘best books’ of 2008. It’s a very scientific decision as to who wins, based entirely on internet voting, and I’m a bit late to the game (the poll’s been up three weeks and ends tomorrow night, and I only just found out three minutes ago), but if you’d like to go vote, then heck, you might even win a B&N or Amazon gift certificate, too. :)(x-posted from the essential kit)
I found my tin whistle book. It was…wait for it…shelved tidily in the bookcase not 18 inches from my elbow as I work every day.
In my defense, I’d forgotten that it was a full-sized book, and had been searching for a smaller one, which in my opinion explains why I didn’t see it. Also I didn’t look on that bookcase, because I thought I was looking for something smaller (well, I *was* looking for something smaller, just wrongly) and I thought it was on the other bookcase. Or in a box. But it was neither, and now I have a second one to practice with, too, because Ted bought me one after I lost the first one. o.o :)
Maybe I’ll go practice. :)
