As I said on the night, some girls spend their time dreaming about what their wedding will be like, but I've spent my years growing up imagining what my book launch would be like. Suffice to say, I was very happy. Some great company and lots of celebrating - it was just what I needed to launch my little book into the world.
Not only was this wine very appropriate for the novel, it was also really delicious - so it does pay to choose a wine based on its adorable label!
Nibbles! These went down a treat (and the Jammy Dodgers were mentioned in a part of the reading that I did). Marshmallows and crisps were shared out later, along with more wine top ups!
And here I am - on my throne! Summerhall Bookshop was the perfect place for my book launch - it suited the setting of the novel, and it's also very pretty.
And there we have it - Swings & Roundabouts is offically launched into the world. Scary, but very exciting. Finally, the dream has come true!
