NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL 2013 ...


 London's Notting Hill Carnival 2013!

This annual late-August event in London’s Notting Hill (Yes! That Notting Hill!) is always colorful with outrageous costumes and fancy dress. And might even figure in the next in my Alice Myers series of murder/mystery thrillers (See Retribution, sidebar right!). 

Here are some images:






















As you know, all profits from the sale of my novels, The De Clerambault Code, Soul Stealer and Retribution go to the charity Cudeca - see sidebar opposite (www.cudeca.org)).

See sidebar or click HERE (Amazon UK)HERE (Amazon.com) and HERE (Goodreads) for reviews and further shameless self-promotion! Thanks so much for your support!

Enjoy!

OMG is right! What an incredible turnout they have! The colors are gorgeous. Right now we are having a Greek Festival in Columbus, Ohio that is always a great place to go.
the Greek food is so good and we always love the Greek dancing.

Thanks for stopping by! We always love to see your comments.

blessings, Edie Marie
