It finally arrived...the Pitlochry Quaich

Yesterday it arrived, an oddly shaped package and I thought 'what on earth is this?' Then I opened it and out popped the Pitlochry Quaich. Until I held it in my hands I didn't believe I had actually won the Scottish Association of Writers award for a crime novel.



Thanks go to the wonderful Barbara Hammond at Writers' Umbrella for ensuring the trophy got to me as I was unable to attend because of personal reasons.

  3. Thanks Peter and David. To be honest, I didn't know what a Quaich was. David, I must be about the only Scottish writer who doesn't take a wee dram. Feel like I need it now and then.

Hopefully the person jumping out of your cake won't look as bored as these two! For a major scene in my book, How Kirsty Gets Her...
