Thought I’d have a go at this…. taken at Cowley Manor, my favourite cheeky lunch venue. This is my big sister. The quote is a genuine 5* review on Amazon. I’m particularly chuffed with the reference to Andrea Levy, the author that inspired me to put pen to paper and write Dance with Fireflies!

Feeling slightly overwhelmed! The book launch party was amazing. We got to the East India Cafe early and set everything up…..stacks of books on a table for Alfie to sell and me to sign!!!! (felt nicely weird). The projector with the trailer was set up and the bookmark flyers dotted about the place. The restaurant was cleared of most of the table and chairs, giving us a lovely space to entertain. They even built me a bookshelf to display the book. Had a quick drink to steady the nerves, although I felt surprisingly calm. Then the lovely sitar music started and my guests arrived. The evening flowed with canapes and cocktails inspired by the British Raj. We mingled, nibbled, sipped and laughed our way through the evening. The pile of books reduced to only a few by the end of the party….the restaurant even produced cute goody bags for everyone to take home….a night I’ll never forget.
Its been a week of tears and triumph as I’ve battled with Word Docs, margins and headers, but its all been worth it. I have just received approval of my submitted document to Createspace and ordered 2 hard copies. They are arriving on Friday! I’m am so thrilled to see it all falling into place. The online proof looks great, the cover is fab and all the listing info is complete. I just need to work out the pricing, approve the proof and upload it as an e version on Amazon and chocs away…we are ready for take off!
