October is here, and with it comes a brand new format for my home page. I hope you like it!

Featured book of the week:

"Octavius and George are such solid and likeable characters that I found it easy to imagine them as I read, hearing their banter in my head, and enjoying the different aspects of their relationships with each other...Village mysteries with lots of interesting characters who all have a motive are always a favourite of mine, and the excellent historical research (and notes at the end) makes it perfect for anyone who, like me, is also a history buff who loves a glimpse into how people lived in the past. This series just gets better and better."

Featured track of the week:
October's Fabulous Friend

At age 11, this month's Fabulous Friend created Superdog, who bears a remarkable resemblance to the Bronski Beat version of his current dog, George. He is of course Mark Rogers, who is now a mesmerising writer in his own right.

When I ask someone to write a piece for Fabulous Friends, I give them free rein as regards the subject matter. I have no idea what they will produce. This month Mark has pulled out all the stops for us.

Kitty's Mystery Jukebox

Twitter friends will know just how popular and enjoyable Saturday's Mystery Jukebox can be. Kitty starts you off with a track along a particular topic and then runs the Jukebox with an paw of iron as people add to the playlist.

Each week Kitty will save her second token for use on the website, just before shutting the bar and pulling the plug. If anyone guesses her chosen track, they will feature in her spot! You too could snuggle into an unsuitably small cardboard box!

This week Kitty was looking for the keywords "house" and "home". She has extended her list to reflect the number of tokens you used...approaching 50 - the  best response yet! These were her top picks:
