Book Launch Planning

I now have a date for my book launch at the Oxfam Bookshop in Swansea - Wednesday 18th April at 7pm. The arrangements are coming along well. My daughters are going to make cookies, and maybe mini cupcakes. My illustrator's mum is going to make non-alcoholic punch. And the shop will provide teas and coffees.

I'm going to talk about how I came to write the book and some of the fascinating stories I found, and my illustrator Carrie is going to talk about the illustrations. The shop have also offered a week-long exhibition of her drawings, which will be great for her and good publicity.

And I hope I will be signing lots of copies of the book bought on the night.


  1. Well done on finding a venue. I've had a read through some of your posts and it sounds like you've put a LOT of hard work into getting this off the ground. Best of luck with the evening and your book.

  2. Thanks Pete. It is taking more effort than I bargained for, but worth it, I'm sure.
