For those who’ve not already seen this on Facebook – I thought I’d put up some pictures from the launch this weekend.
Overall it went well, though I’ll be booking a shorter slot next time I think: We had plenty of people turn up but because it was a three hour slot and a fairly small launch, some stayed throughout, some came early and left after a while, some came later and left at the end. The upshot of which meant the room was never completely full and there was a fair bit of hanging around (luckily we had sweets!).
I was pleased with the turnout overall, the raffle went very well, and I thought the map Rosie put together and the figures my father donated made a nice touch – people seemed to like them anyway!
Credit to Kevin for his photography etc and of course, a big thanks to everyone who came along to support. I have to say it was a surreal experience signing books and hearing my work read aloud…
But I think I could get used to it!
