An exciting day – for me anyway – at the ‘Bucket’ book launch. Quiet to begin with but then when strangers came up to me to ask about the book it suddenly all seemed real!
Why on earth would they want to buy my book?
But they did!
Then of course when friends and family and neighbours arrived to cheer me on (and buy books) it was overwhelming!
We sold out!
So of course The Lady Vivienne and I now think we can conquer the world!
We went for a very enjoyable celebration afterwards. Here’s some revellers:
But, of course, this is all well and good, but what about the after-launch comedown?
What I mean is, people who’ve bought your book might actually READ it and say something about it.
Now that IS scary!
I’ve been walking about feeling naked ever since. But slowly comments have come in and nobody seems to have burnt the book quite yet. A few people have actually said they liked it!
Here, for instance, is a very heart warming Waterstones.com review.
