Review:PendleWizard says:
I continue to greatly enjoy this story. I'd like to reiterate what Bardic Magic's review says: It is your attention detail that makes your writing. You are writing about the interplay between magic and muggle and therefore the detail has to work. I'm trying to do the same in my own writing. There are plenty of other stories about magic and relationships if that's what people want! So please: carry on 'being Bill'

[Just to clarify: a lot of beer does go in the fridge, but real ale is something specific and it is drunk at room temperature, just like red wine is.]

Have a bonus mark for the comment about the News of the World. It is SO what Whiteside would have said!

The term Not-For-Profit is not in general use in the UK, certainly not at the time your book is set. YIPI would be termed a voluntary organisation. The general population tends to use the term charity slightly lazily as a bit of a portmanteau to cover any voluntary organisaion whether or not a registered charity. Whiteside, I am sure would talk about family/charitable trusts, registered charities and voluntary organisations..

But I'm being the pedantic Englishman again. Maybe you need to talk about not-for-profits for the benefit of all your other readers and I'll just have to grit my teeth!

Thanks again for brilliant writing. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Author's Response: hank you PendalWizard,

As I told Bardic Magic, I've been out of reading time for a while and am looking forward to seeing how you both conceive of magic, muggles and their interplay.

I thought I knew that about real ale, apparently not! Thanks.

I think I need to go with voluntary organization. I'll make the change in this book then later make the change in my first story. Again, thank you, I appreciate getting the cultural context right.

Pedantic, humm! It was wrong and you fixed it for me. That's teaching. I appreciate that you took the time to make my story better.
