I have to admit I copied the idea for this post from Laura at Daily Dodo. In yesterday's inspired post she asked the question, Who is your best film friend? My answer was A Fish Called Wanda because it makes me laugh every time I watch it, even though I know the plot and dialogue by heart. Do pop over to her blog and let her know who your best film friend is.
My question is who is your best book friend? You know the one. The book you've read several times, and will return to again in the future. The book that makes you smile, or scream in terror if you're that way inclined. The book that makes you caress the cover fondly, and quote lines from when someone asks you about it. The book that you insist your friends and family should read because they don't know what they are missing.

Sticking with the theme of books and films, Madeleine at Scribble and Edit is hosting the Novel Films Blogfest from August 1st to 3rd, where you can discuss films based on books. Pop over to her blog to read the details and how to sign up.
I'm pleased to say Laura Eno's new book Deadly Intent is now available in paperback and ebook format. You can read the first chapter of her horror/thriller novel here.
Finally, I've now completed 94% of my current WIP Dreaming of Sleep. I'm hoping to have finished the final scenes by the weekend. I feel a celebration coming! Any suggestions?
