My first ever cover quote

I had such a nice surpise this morning. Some time ago I reviewed Hattori Hachi: The Revenge of Praying Mantis by Jane Prowse, a really great action story with a ninja-in-training heroine who really kicks ass. It was released in 2009 but I didn't hear about it until January of this year when it was recommended by my friend Liz from My Favourite Books. Looking back I would certainly say that in my opinion it is one of the best books released during 2009. This morning I received the sequel, entitled Hattori Hachi: Stalking The Enemy from the generous people at Piccadilly, and I was gobsmacked to see that they have used a quote from my review of The Revenge of Praying Mantis on the back cover. This really made my day (which was already looking good thanks to the brilliant custom-made avatar I had emailed to me by the hugely talented Nathan Hale (of Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack fame) and I have been smiling ever since. He even included a pair of headphones as aside from teaching and reading/blogging I also do a little DJing form time to time. A huge thanks to Nathan!
