Can I make this work? - Robin Hobb - 18-07-2010

Hello! And apologies for this all-English post.

I was very glad to hear from Umbra (Marco)that the Treasure Beach had been created. I had attempted to post here before, but quickly got lost in my attempts.

I wanted to thank all of you who made me feel so welcome in Italy. In town after town, I met members of Bloodmemories. I received far too many gifts to mention them all here, except to say that I have enjoyed every one of them (and that my family truly enjoyed the pasta and olive spread, too!) Whenever I pick up my shopping bag, necklace or one of the other items I received, I think of Italy all over again. Thank you all so much!

I did return to find that we had had a small house fire in my absence. Luckily, it only destroyed a television set and did smoke and soot damage. All my books were safe, and there was no structural damage to the house. So I remain very thankful that it was such a small disaster with no one injured.

I continue to work on the next Rain Wild book. Soon I shall have to think of a title for it.

For anyone who is interested, I post almost daily at

That is my newsgroup on

I also have two Livejournals, one for Robin-hobb (don't forget the dash!) and one for MeganLindholm (no space between the names.) And of course there is and There is also a Robin HObb myspace! So, there are lots of places to keep in touch with me, but I will try to drop in here from time to time, to let you know what I am doing.

Once more, thank you so much for so many things!

Have you ever seen the first five seconds of "Spaceballs"?
(In a galaxy far far far far far far far far far far far far away...)
Now that become:
You are very very very very very very ... [CUT] ... very very very very very very very welcome, Robin!Linguaccia

OK, Coligne, it's time to be serious...
*my evil alter-ego have to tell a thing*
Serious?! You? Serious! Don't make me laughing...
*i retake control of myself*
( LoL )

Well, i repeat, you are very welcome here, Robin!Occhiolino
And, i think i can speak also for the rest of the "crew", we are honoured to have you on board. (obviously, wich other ship -virtual, sure, but always a ship- can boast of having on board Robin Hobb?Linguaccia )YeeeYeee
For many of us this (you, here) is a dream come true, and i'm one of these.

I don't know if i'm able to explain what that all means for us, and not even gonna try; i let to do at who is better with the words than me...

Finally, i would have much other thing to say, but it's 4:42 am (in Italy, of course), and is better that i will go to sleep...Linguaccia

PS: It's possible that out is 28° C (82.4° F)? At 4 am!UrghRollRoll

Dear Robin, I'm so glad for your post! Welcome!

I've no words for you, now - I'm sorry: since our lunch in Rome I live in a dream. I hope you'll enjoy spending time on board with us; for any problem, please send a PM to me or to 'Wintrow', 'The Fool' or 'Occhi-di-notte'.

A very big hug, be in touch!

There aren't many things to say after Coligne's post...Smile
I just want you to know that I was doubly pleased to met you at ParmaFantasy, because you are an enchanting woman, more than a brilliant writer, and spend that time with you (even a little) was really a pleasure.
It is always a great emotion to know your favourite writer, but I'm very, very happy to know such a beautiful person as you are.
Thank you very much.

Welcome, Robin! Yeee
It's wonderful to have you here with us! Your Italian Tour was a dream for us, new emotions filled in this forum every day with tales of Bloodmemories's members that meet you. I was only in Parma, but it seems as I was in every place with my friends!
And now the dream continues. Thank you, Robin!

Dear Robin (or Our Beloved Queen ^^),

it is a great honour and even a greater pleasure to have you on board. First the Italian book tour, then your registration at our website, now your message... well, you are really spoiling us! Smile Seriously, many thanks for being on Blood Memories: we know you are very busy and cannot dedicate too much time to us, but for this very reason your dropping in here will always be a precious gift.

Thanks again for everything and best wishes,
