Spilling the books, er... beans... or whatever...

A few postings back, M@ blamed the stupid snow (as opposed to the smart snow) for his not making it to a DoveTale Writer's group editing session. Well, it was indeed pretty nasty weather--

But then in the middle of his posting, he tantalized us with an announcement he had intended to make that night, but that he couldn't (because of the stupid snow, I gather) and we'd have to wait until better weather to hear it.

Okay, fellow bloggers and bloggettes, I'm going to spill the beans (where the hell did that expression ever orginate??? Meaning to tell a secret?), and ask M@ to tell us more...

M@ heard the good news (as opposed to bad news) that his military novel is getting published this spring (when all the snow is gone, I presume...).

M@ or Matt Congrats! I promise to bring one person to your book launching. I think if I am very nice I can get Marianne to attend.

If the Mob Prince is a "Mafia styled Jane Austin" then what is this book in a four word description.

I appreciate the announcement, Marianne. Of course, you all realise that this means that attendance at the KW launch is mandatory for all DTers...

As for your question, Bob... hmmm... how's "Catch-22, not that funny" sound?

I have an "English Idioms" book, Marianne. I tried to find the origin of "Spilling the Beans". It just gives the meaning, not where the saying originates. Now I am curious. Where to find it?

When you and Bob go to m@'s book launch can I come?

Of course, m'dear. We'd have it no other way.
