A perfect book launch


It was the London launch party of Like Bees to Honey yesterday and despite a brewing sinus infection I headed happily off to Wood Green, a journey into the centre of London then back out again!

The Big Green Bookshop was full of chattering literary types, some of whom I already knew, some I recognised from Twitter and others I didn't know at all. I managed to speak to quite a few people including a number of Novel Racers, past and present, Sue Guiney and Julia Williams. I only wish there had been time to talk to many more.

Caroline did a beautiful reading and signed many, many copies of the book. There was wine and Cisk beer from Malta. It was a happy, celebratory evening which finished all too soon.

Caroline's own account of last night and her other launch events can be found here and it's fascinating to read about a book launch from the author's point of view.

It was lovely to see you. I wish we'd had more time to talk but I'm so easily distracted and couldn't settle anywhere!

Wish I could have been there... but glad you all had such a good time.

It was brilliant, wasn't it? Being amid all the lively literary-ness was SUCh a good way to spend a Tuesday evening. I'm still smiling about it now.
