Doing my little thank you speech
The beautiful display table, minus a few copies sold on the night
Chatting to family/friends/guests
Still signing... the best part of the evening, once my speech was over :)
Our hosts for the evening were the lovely staff at The Old Hall Bookshop in Brackley, Northamptonshire. I used to work there and it provided the inspiration for my fictional Old and New Bookshop in the novel.
It feels great to be a published author and I get a thrill each time I spot my book in a shop. Here are a few more pics!...

This whole blog post feels like a great big mum-boast, so I'll shut up now. If you're a writer seeking publication, don't ever give up, it really is worth all the perseverance to see your darling out there in the big wide world. There's nothing quite like it.
