After rushing around like a mad woman all week and on the day, I am happy to say despite the nerves, I really enjoyed it. It was just brilliant to see friends old and new turning up to give their support and best wishes. I was overwhelmed that over thirty people came out on a rainy cold evening to listen to me give a talk and a reading.
The little guy in this picture is my grandson, Ronan. He won the hearts of a few I can tell you!
I couldn't believe that I was actually signing books in a real bookstore either! That was something I had only ever dreamed about before.
Some friends and family had travelled from as far as Trowbridge, Westbury, Tetbury and Southampton, Just brilliant. And the refreshments were brilliant too! My fab publishers Choc Lit had sent a case of fizz and the House Of Dorchester had provided the most gorgeous Champagne and Strawberry truffles.
A friend of ours, Yvonne made the cupcakes and they were just as delicious as they look in the photo!
So I want to say a huge thank you to all who came and/or wished me well,
and Robb Norton, the manager of Foyles was a real star and made the whole evening run smoothly, so an extra big thanks to him too.
Below, more pics of the launch :)
