The Mystery of the Disappearing Tramp

Here is a picture of the dustwrapper from the new serial - too large to fit on my scanner I'm afraid, but you can see most of it:-

We will just have to wait and see if it appears on Monday, your guess is as good as mine! :lol:

I hadn't seen the full dustwrapper before - it really is excellent, capturing the quirkiness of some of the characters of Peterswood!

I agree, Anita. It's one of Roberts paintings. Does this mean that Robert wrote the story? :D

It's a great feeling, but also a little daunting!! :?

Hope everyone likes it! :oops:

Good on you mate, I certainly couldn't do it. I'll certainly have a read. Now where exactly is it? :)

I can understand how you feel, Robert. When Keith puts up my latest, I feel like hiding until someone actually says they liked it. So you can come out now from under the stairs, Robert. I liked the first chapter, it's very well written. Looking forward to reading the next one. You must be feeling very proud. :D

A lovely beginning Robert! Can't wait for the next chapter! Is it going to be available for everyone - I see there's no password needed at the moment?

That must be because you are already logged in, Daisy! :D If you log out from the Secret Passage you will find that you can no longer see it. I am not sure how long the 'log in' lasts, but I logged in yesterday and was still logged in today. So, 'no' is the answer to your question, it is not going to be available except to Society Members - and just to be quite clear on this, being a registered member of the forums does not automatically make people Society members.
