How to Host a Diabolical Book Launch

IMG_6732Cor, what a weekend! Blackwell’s Bookshop hosted a FABULOUS launch fest on Friday for The Tragickall History of Henry Fowst. Much Feasting and Fun and a Foison (oh dear, I’m running out of Fs) of books sold.  It was a huge pleasure to see so many friends and particularly children enjoying Hetty Gullifer’s devilish canapés (Gullifer Eats) P1020410and listening in awed hushsomeness to extracts from the book given by two very polished young readers. No Faustian pacts were made (at least I hope not), though I couldn’t help noticing that some of the guests had adopted Mephistopheles’s signature colours of scarlet and blaP1020475ck in their dress.

Uncanny, eh.P1020321

Then lovely invitations from two of my favourite websites to contribute an article. First, a guest blog on Childtastic Books all about the ideas behind The Tragickall HIstory of Henry Fowst.  Then, How to Write a Book on Muddy Stilettos (nothing to it, er, nothing to it at all. Cough cough.)

Phew. A well-earned rest beckons.

What do you mean, it’s only Tuesday?
