Well, I had great fun at the launch of my debut novel, Treasure This. Read more about it and see more picturess on the Treasure This Launch Page.
In spite of some nerves, once I started, it all went really well. It was great having friends, family, other writers, and of course my Electrik Inc colleagues there to support me, too. Here’s Janine (under, on the right) and Jenny.
If I’ve learned anything from this occasion that I can pass on, it’s that making notes about what to talk about is fine, but once you start talking, it all comes from the heart. So all I had to do was make a short list of the points I wanted to cover, and then leave it to my ‘self’ to say what I felt. That seemed to work well. That, and the most important thing – speak s.l.o.w.l.y. Nerves can make me talk fast, so I just took a deep breath and slowed everything down. And that seemed to work well, too. The main thing was, we had fun!
