We have a winner!

Thank you everyone for your kind comments, aaaaw shucks ;)

Yes, our winner is the lovely 2PAW! Yay! I'll be sending the book your way - soon-ish...

I don't have time to add photos or even scratch myself, let alone knit, or cook, or barely breathe at the moment, as I've just landed a new Wiley book deal with a truly DEMENTED deadline. As my co-author Mark said : "a whole great honking flock of geese insane."

A 336 page book with 400 puzzles (ciphers and cryptograms) in 10 days. Yeah, that's not a misprint. 31 August is the 100% delivery date 0_o In the past week I've had an hour of midnight phone 'meetings' with my editors in the States, and daily 'chat session' meetings with Mark.

Thankfully I have lovely, intelligent, on the ball, funny co-author in Mark, who is really excellent to work with. You can read a bit about him here and here. Yes, our book is linked in with Freemasonry as a theme ... more shall be revealed when this madness has passed!

If we survive ... !

Catch you all quite a bit later :D
