My Book Launch

My book launch for Lonely Werewolf Girl went well though it wasn't the great event I was hoping for. I saw many friends who I hadn't seen for a while and that was good. However, it was a very long trek for people from South London, and there were people I was expecting to see who didn't make it. I'm grateful to everyone who made the journey. The Boogaloo is a nice bar but perhaps I should have held the launch somewhere closer to home.

Also, I don't think I'd prepared enough, and didn't do my readings all that well. In the end I sold quite a lot of books so I suppose that means it was successful. But it could have been better, and afterwards I feel a little let down.

On the positive side, my brother gave me a lift there and back. Though it was a long journey I didn't suffer from agoraphobic panic as I feared I might.

    great to hear you did not suffer from agoraphobia. can;t wait to
    read your new book, i am sure i am going to feel like meeting a good old friend, if this makes any sense...met you once a few years ago, nice.

  2. The launch was fun and you read great (even for a Scottish man on Hull ears!). You shouldn't ever feel let down, especially if you conquer your agoraphobia. x

  3. Oh and the Tomb Raider reference made my night! :o)

  4. I'm enjoying the new game :o)
    Except I'm stuck at a difficult bit.

  5. I enjoyed the launch, Martin - it was well worth a trip into North London.

    It was such a nice evening, I went by bike, and enjoyed a lovely long downhill ride back.

    I'm well into the book now. I'm offered it to my daughter to read, so that pretty much ensures she won't read it. Should have hidden it - an forbidden her to read it.
