Congratulations, V. It's good to see your hard work and dilegence--not to mention your excellent scholarship--are being rewarded. :)

Thanks Tom! And as Prim says, it's good to see you here. It's been too long.

Well done Mr V. You have put a lot of time and a lot of yourself into this. Good luck with it.
A friend of mine once said that you should always try and make your hobbies pay.

I'll try Prim I promise! :)

If only things were a bit calmer in the RL but alas right now my schedule looks like a tornado swept through it! I have come to accept that as my life for now though one yearns sometimes for more time to really unwind and relax...

That's just what I was coming to find out: when will it be available. I seriously cannot wait to get it, and am trying to figure out how to work the fact that I know the author into a casual conversation.

[future conversation]

Me: good, look at this book! I know the author! Seriously! Only I call him Voronwë_the_Faithful! Vorry for short! We post on the same forum online! Ha ha! I srsly no him. he is muh frend. he is so kewl!!11

Voronwë,

What stunning news this was! And a very deserved reward for your scholarship. I can't wait to hold your book in my hands! :bow:

You're going to touch the book with your bare hands? :shock: Jeez, Jnyusa, at least wear those little white gloves the guyz on Antiques Roadshow wear!

It's teh Precious!!! :D

Seriously. I have already been going around bragging about knowing the author of The Hidden Worlds and now I can say I know YOU, Voronwë!!! This is more fun than I've had in years.

Since LOTR came out, I'd say. :D

Yes, yes. I intend to buy a "keeper" for myself and I have 2 scholarly friends who shall receive it for Christmas gifts.
