Sharing with you the excitement of launch week

Hello!

After a saturated end to last week in Northamptonshire, when I was soaked to the skin dashing through Northampton to get to BBC Radio Northampton for my interview on the Bernie Keith Show, by Monday summer had arrived! Before my BBC Radio Cambridgeshire spot with Jeremy Sallis I was able to sit outside at a nearby pub to eat my lunch. (I only drank water and tea, honestly.) It was glorious!

 

The week has continued in the same vein. Yesterday I met friends in London and then went on to Romance in the Court, hosted by Goldsboro Books of Cecil Court. Standing outside the shop, drinking fizz and chatting to many author friends plus quite a few readers, it felt as if we were in the Mediterranean. (I had a chocolate brownie before the event and half a pizza after, in case you were worried that I had nothing to soak up those lovely bubbles!)

Just for the Holidays has enjoyed encouraging sales figures for its first week (or part week, in the case of the paperback) so I plan to give myself time to relax this weekend and watch the Formula 1 from Monaco.

I’ll finish with a bit of a gallery to go with the excitement of launch week, working on the principle of a picture being worth a thousand words (even if, as a writer, I seldom agree.)

Nothing could be better than a summer spent basking in the French sun. Until you add in three teenagers, two love interests, one divorcing couple and a very unexpected pregnancy.
