Book Launch Pictures

Just in case you missed my book launch for my novel, Ice and a Slice, I thought I would post some pictures.  Oh and let you know how the day went. It was fabulous. The launch was at The Red Lion, a pub in our village.  I really recommend book launches in pubs, by the way. I’ve had my last two launches in this one.  Pubs have some advantages over book shops (sorry book shops but they do).There is lots of wine and coffee handy, and you don’t need to worry about spilling it over the books – or at least no one else’s books, except yours. There is lots of space for socialising – including a beautiful garden at the Red Lion.  You can have lunch there if you like – lots of people did this.


Cake and Wine

All I had to arrange was an endless supply of coffee and soft drinks – which the Red Lion kindly provided (bill coming later) and some bottles of wine for anyone who fancied a glass. Oh and I took three huge cakes – I’d like to say they were home made but they were M&S.

And I took the books, of course. I took all of my books – why restrict yourself to the one you are launching 🙂 This is usually possible in a book shop too.

And I needed someone to take the money. Thank you very much, Tony and Adam.

Oh and I needed a pen.

Oh and my co-author of How to Eat Loads and Stay Slim came to the launch too. So we could both sign copies of How to Eat Loads – there aren’t many dual signed copies of that around!

Did I mention it was fabulous?

It was.  Thank you so much to everyone who came.  And if you didn’t make it, but you would like to read Ice and a Slice. You can buy it for £1.94 for your kindle by clicking here. Or if you’d like an actual paperback, heaven forbid, and you’d like it signed by yours truly, you can get it for £6.99 by emailing me – or posting a comment on my blog. I won’t even charge you postage and packing. And signed books make brilliant presents. 🙂

And if you’d like a copy of How to Eat Loads and Stay Slim – signed by both the authors, you can get that for £6.00. See above for how.

Thanks for reading.

    Sounds like it was a wonderful event, Della – well done (and there’s nothing wrong with M&S cake).

    Clearly, things went with a swing. You (and everyone) look suitably sparkly! Thanks for the photos. I’m part way through SJ’s saga on my Kindle, and it’s… well, I think ‘gripping’ is the proper word.

    It looks fantastic and I’m sure everybody lucky enough to attend had a wonderful time. Well done you. Let’s face it if an M & S cake is good enough for the Calendar Girls ………………:o) xx

    I reckon there might be a next time – everyone who fancies some M&S cake – and yes if it’s good enough for the Calendar Girls, Sue. But hey, it’s not just cake is it – it’s M&S cake. Not that I’m the least bit influenced by advertising 😉
