by Mike

Breaking News at The View From Here:

Before he rode of The Lone Ranger unmasked The Amateur Book Blogger - I knew all along but heh, who was I to spoil his fun?

So intro Jen Persson the unmasked Book Blogger.

And it gets better ...

Jen is joining us here on team at TVFH to run the News section of the magazine from August. I'm really excited to have someone as talented as Jen on board - she was part of the team behind Scriblist which brought the world Five Green Bananas , a book of collaborative short stories which includes contributions from Jen herself.

So welcome Jen ... your virtual news-desk awaits!

See Jen's profile here.

Welcome to the team, Jan!

Yeah, hey, yeah, welcome, Jan. I had no idea you were the Amateur Book Blogger and even less of an inkling you were the Lone Ranger. Will you now wear two, or is it three, hats? Will the Lone Ranger, unmasked, get back on Silver and continue to bestow books on the non-suspecting?

It's lovely to see you here, Jan. Welcome. I look forward to you adding your perspective to The View From Here.

Thanks Team! Delighted to be on board with all of you. I suspect Mike (aka The Lone Ranger) was already riding off into his holiday as he posted the intro though, as I have been transformed from Jen into Jan. Perhaps it is the American "e'less"spelling version (wink and smile). But Jen (aka the ABB) is thrilled to be on board and look forward to getting started on The News from Aug 1.

Yes, welcome! I'm a little new, too, so welcome!

Jen I'm so sorry! I've changed all the Jans to Jens - you think I would have noticed after four or five times!

Now I look good and all the rest of the team calling you Jan look silly! Ha!

And come on, your here for 2 minutes and already your telling the world that I'm The Lone Ranger - but I suppose we have cast you as the news hound, so I shouldn't be surprised!

So it's Jen! Names are important. And don't worry, Mike. I'm obviously still mystified by the Lone Ranger. Who Was that Masked Man (or Woman)?

What's in a name? At least we can all be thankful our parents did not name us "Talula does the Hula From Hawaii" unlike a nine year old girl in New Zealand, who requested this week, that it be changed by court order.

Hi Ho Silver - is your master not away on vacation?

The Amateur Book Blogger: I'm afraid The Lone Ranger has flown The View From Here.

To answer your question, I will be on holiday in August - when gasp(!) I will have to leave the rest of you in charge of the ship for 3 and half weeks whilst I go off-line. Gulp! You will look after her won't you?
