This weekend I had my first ever book launch in my hometown of Leigh-on-Sea.
Instead of a formal literary affair, I decided to have a full on Greek party complete with Greek food, Greek dancing and plastic plate smashing, to celebrate my new status as a published author (and to try and sell off a few copies to unsuspecting party-goers).
My wonderful mother spent most of the week baking, grilling, and baking some more in preparation for the Greek feast, and what a feast we had. I think it is fair to say that more people turned up for the food than they did to buy a copy of my book! In fact, several guests seemed far more interested in the ingredients of my mother’s cheesecake than the plotline of my story!
In all seriousness I have been amazed by the number of people who have shown their support for my book and I am so very grateful for all the encouragement and kind words that I have received. 🙂
If you enjoy the book, please consider telling your friends or posting a short review on Amazon. Word of mouth is an author’s best friend and much appreciated.
Thank you all! xoxo
