“Dear Victoria, I must say you have done us proud with the theatre festival – we are absolutely delighted. President Peter Lavery texted me to say: ‘The headline, the two hero shots and the text strike an optimum promo balance. The best publicity we have’.  The ad too is in a good place on the Rosetta books story page.  Thank you so much.”


“I though the article turned out very well – I am getting lots of comments about my dulcet tones!  The old photo turned out really well – well done.  Thanks Angela for thinking of me and help spread my thanks to the Maleny people.”


The article/photos on Roving Restorers was great. I have had a lot of positive feedback from people currently involved. Hopefully new people will get on board also. Many thanks for your support.

“Dear Victoria, Just a short note to thank you for the story in the Times. You have brought out beautifully and sensitively that the book is not about tennis. It is about people.  I have had feedback from non-tennis players how interesting they found your article as a story ‘in its own right’ to quote an email from ReMax. You did it better than I could have.  Kind regards,
