Our Jilles sent in this picture, with the note “You’ve ordered that book in The Hague before!”.  Erm, yes, yes we did.  In fact, Karen Rose is an ace author.  And sometimes the library buys books from us.  But what are you implying about ABC The Hague, Jilles?  What are you implying?  *deer-in-headlights-look*




Here’s a special request from Samir, who you might remember from his annual contribution to YOUR Favorite Reads, as well as a few You Reviews.

Cecile's Writers logo (sorry for hijacking it, guys!)“I’m part of a writing group based in the Hague (Cecile’s Writers). Some of our members have recently moved to other countries, so we’re looking for some new members who are interested in sharing their writing and joining our group. We’re definitely an informal bunch of experienced writers and editors – and nothing proves it more than each person bringing with them food to share before a meeting 🙂

Some of us are so passionate about writing that we even started a foundation, Stichting Cecile’s Writers, with a literary eZine! And it’s doing well! 

So I was hoping I could entice you to give us a shout out in any way possible through the ABC or online. We’d love to have new writers contact us.”

So there you are.  If you love writing and editing and being part of an eZine, be sure to check out Cecile’s Writers and get in touch with them!  They can also be found on Twitter and Facebook.


And, finally, some of my favorite pictures from ABC’s social media of the past week:
