Soooooo it’s been just over a couple of weeks now but I’m still buzzing from the amazingness that was Publication Day. Yesterday ‘How to Get a (Love) Life’ was sitting at #1 in the ‘Love, Sex and Marriage’ Amazon Chart and #2 in ‘Fiction, Humour’ – and it all seems to have gone SO FAST. So now I reflect…
The night itself was fantabulous. I made a (fashionably) late entrance (those yellow shorts take time to get into) whilst my lovely* husband worked the room and greeted people. I’d invited a few very close friends from the Real World and a lot of reviewers, bloggers and authors that had shown so much early support for the novel on Twitter and Online. It was quite frankly BRILLIANT to see them merging in the same room.
The Novelicious crew were out in force (see above – Cress, Amanda and Jenny) as were the fantastic team of Darley’s Angels. The venue – the Soho Bar – suited the book perfectly – silly, loud and full of LOL’s (there were loos as chairs and half a bath for goodness sake). People lounged around on the BED and swapped bookish goss and laughs over cocktails in jam jars. I made a slightly gushy speech and we all drank, ate and danced about.
See below for some of the piccies and thank you to all those who made it such an ace evening.
