Go for Launch

onceconfrontedlaunch-11smallThis afternoon I held a book launch for Once Confronted. I hired a nearby church hall and went down in the early afternoon to get everything ready for the 2.00 pm start.

It’s amazing how many things you need to take with you to an event like this. I needed a sign people could see from the street so they could see where to turn into the car park. I needed another sign to point people to the right building. I put up posters and blurbs and book review quotes for all my books, with food and drink enough to feed an army.

An army didn’t attend but those who came seemed to enjoy themselves.

I also had competitions asking people what their favourite book was and why they liked it. I had entries from people ranging in age from six to sixty! One year five student named a book called Faceless, which about a burn victim who needs a face transplant. She certainly enjoyed what sounds like a very moving book. I also asked people to tell me a great title for a book. My favourite was the book called Don’t Buy This. I think that one could really work. 🙂

I told the story of what inspired me to write Once Confronted and am hoping to upload it to YouTube at some point. Keep your eye on this space if you’re interested. I also told the story in last week’s blog, which you can read here if you like. It was an emotional story to tell but everyone seemed to appreciate my honesty about what I had been through.

Now the book launch is done and Once Confronted is well and truly out there. If you’ve already read it I’d love it if you would leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads. And if you haven’t read it yet you can find links to where you can purchase it here.  Happy reading!
