A Highland Gathering..!

The date for your diary is this Friday - the 9th September 2011.

I’m being Roasted and Toasted and cordially invite you to come along!

For those of you unfamiliar with the spectacle that is the Author Roast & Toast, let me just say that it’s lots of wonderfully silly interactive entertainment and you interact by leaving comments and playing along in what is a virtual role-play party situation. It’s great fun!



To toast my humorous romance in a Scottish setting novel, Bagpipes & Bullshot, the theme of my Author Roast & Toast is one of a Highland Gathering. The fabulous virtual setting for the party is a Scottish Castle and the virtual food will also be on a Scottish theme. Plus there will be a bagpipe cake and lots of virtual whisky cocktails and bullshot to wash it all down with!



Please do join me, Sharon, Mary, Lin, Patsy, and the handsome waiter, Oliver, (who has trained in some of the best culinary schools in Europe and will look fabulous in a kilt) this Friday as the party sizzles. Dress code: Tartan.



See you there!

Janice Horton said...

Hi Rosemary - and thank you, if I hadn't had so much fun at your Roasting I wouldn't now be having one myself!

Janice Horton said...

Hi Pauline - don't forget to wear your best tartan frock lol!

Talli Roland said...

Sounds like a blast! I'll try to pop by if I'm can - technically I'm supposed to be on vacation this week.

Janice Horton said...

It would be great to see you there on Friday, Talli - but I'm pretty sure the bagpipes will keep playin' until the Saturday night actually!:)Have a great vacation!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

I hope to pop in, hope all goes well.

Yvonne.

Melanie said...

Wouldn't miss it for the world! Hauling out my kilt for the occasion!

Love the new look of your blog.

Sounds great fun,Janice -I'll be along!

Cara Cooper said...

Hope to come along, but I haven't owned a kilt since I was in primary school! I would like to go back to Scotland again though and visit Edinburgh - I've never been but everyone says it's lovely and it's just featured in the film One Day.

Janice Horton said...

Hi Yvonne, Melanie & Myra!It will be great to see you at the Roast & Toast on Friday. I can't wait to see what I'll be wearing - lol!- the girls on the blog always come up with the most fabulous outfits!

Janice Horton said...

Hi Cara - I so love Edinburgh. I'm a country girl at heart but I know I could live in the city of Edinburgh - it's historic yet vibrant and I'm lucky to live just one hour away by car.

See you Friday! x

PS. My new book (out later this year) is set in Edinburgh at the start and my book Bagpipes & Bullshot ends in Edinburgh - at Hogmanay no less!

Hi Janice .. thanks for coming over and following .. I've looked to follow you - but can't see the button - maybe it's done a runner and is preparing for Friday, or has already drunk all the whisky .. and so is having a zizz.

Congratulations on your two books - that's fantastic .. and I'm just about to sign up for Friday - definitely enjoy roast and toast bagpipe style ..

Fun - cheers Hilary

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Janice .. 'Followers' decided to come to life, after I'd gone over to Roast and Toast .. see you there Friday .. cheers Hilary

Janice Horton said...

Hi Hilary - thanks for the follow - I don't know what happens with Blogger sometimes but it can be most annoying when things disappear! So glad you can pop along to the Roasting on Friday! Thanks and see you then! xx

Vonda Sinclair said...

Oh wow! This sounds like fun!!!

Janice Horton said...

Hi Vonda - I'm sure it will be lots of fun - please do try and pop by tomorrow!

Author Roast and Toast said...

Hi Janice - thanks for the advance publicity, we're so looking forward to having you as our special guest.
Lyn, Sharon, Mary and Patsy are all falling over themselves getting the preparations done!

Don't worry about kilts Cara - the hostesses always have a stack of spare costumes for guests - and themselves because their own costumes invariably get wet or ripped or some other disaster befalls them!

Janice Horton said...

Oh my goodness - the excitement of seeing Oliver in a ripped kilt is just too much. *faints*

Joan Fleming said...

Looking forward to it Janice.
