Pre-release Book Launch Event
“Are you having a book launch event?”
The question caught me off-guard, which was silly since I have a double book release coming up – the paperback version of The Thief’s Daughter and the ebook version of The Captain’s Daughter. I decided I was and launched into action to arrange one, whilst secretly worrying that no one would actually turn up …
The event turned into a pre-release book launch celebration and, thankfully, was a great success. Thank you to The Old Inn for hosting it. It was the perfect venue to celebrate my Cornish based fiction, as it prides itself on giving a “Proper Cornish” welcome and claims to be the highest pub in Cornwall.
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who dropped in and said hello. You made the event very special for me.
The event lasted two hours. A gentle, constant flow of people dropped in to say hello and purchase one the first paperback version of The Thief’s Daughter to be made available to the public.
The release day is only a week and half away and there are lots of things planned to help celebrate it. A blog tour will start on the Choc Lit Blog and will last through to the end of October. Watch this space for links to the blogs taking part.
On Wednesday, 4th October, I will be heading for Radio Cornwall to appear on the Debbie McCrory Show , whilst on Thursday, 5th October, I will be on CoastFM Radio chatting to John Pestle on the Coast Afternoon show.
I hope you will join me in my celebrations and pop back to read the posts or listen to the interviews. If you don’t have time, why not sign up for my quarterly newsletter for a round-up of the posts, news and updates as I would love to keep in touch.
As both novels are about women who face (and overcome) difficulties in their lives, I thought it was fitting to donate a portion of the proceeds from the event to a charitable organisation whose aim is to develop a girl’s potential in order to make a difference to the world – my local Brownies & Guides.
