Celebrating the Sale of the Bad Boys of the Highlands Series

In celebration of the recent sale of my Bad Boys of the Highlands series, I treated my three biggest fans to dinner at a local Scottish pub. My daughter, CP and Beta all joined me for a wonderful treat at Piper's Pub.
We started our enjoyable evening by my CP's recommended appetizer of Scotch Eggs. A hard boiled egg was encased in sausage, breaded and then deep fried. I almost forgot. It was served with hot sauce. I felt my cholesterol rising before I even took a bite, but it was so good. 
 The atmosphere was loud as you would expect from a pub, but that didn't stop me from toasting my three favorite gals for their unwavering support. I passed out gifts to all of them, including the necklace pictured to the right for my beautiful daughter.
The food was wonderful and plentiful. How could you go wrong with the traditional corned beef, cabbage and potatoes?
Not to mention the Beef Shepherd's Pie.
We topped off this hearty meal with a Scottish ice-cream sandwich. This delicious morsel consisted of vanilla ice-cream surrounded by Scottish shortbread and topped with a chocolate, raspberry, butterscotch and blueberry sauce.
Even though we will not eat for a week, a great time was had by all. It's fun to celebrate with friends and family. My heartfelt thanks go out to these three who have been and continue to be my biggest supporters.
How do you celebrate a special occasion with family or friends? 


  1. Dinner for our family is usually a 3 hour event. And no we are not Italian. hahah We just enjoy our meal and it's always been a time to socialize.

    On special occasions, we ALWAYS do dinner somewhere. Usually it's the person of the hour's choice. I love getting together with them. We always seem to have the best laughs, not to mention the memories that will last a lifetime.

    Great post, Victoria! You make me want to visit our local Scottish pub.

  2. Renee, thanks for stopping by. It is so nice to spend time with family and friends. Some of our best memories were made at the table.

  3. Looks like ye had a fine time! Congratulations again. I'm looking forward to enjoying your books.

  4. Thanks, Maeve. Party's over. Back to writing.

  5. There's really nothing quite so tasty as pub food or good friends to share it. Loved the post, Victoria. I can't wait to get hold of your books!

  6. Agree wholeheartedly, Donna. Thanks for stopping by.
