Launch event – what a day!

March 8, 2009

The launch was absolutely brilliant. We had readers from as far away as London, North Wales, Leicester and Hereford – and really appreciated everyone who came along to support us – as well as our families and friends. There are lots of LBD fans out there!

I forgot the camera so I’ve borrowed these pics from Nell. I hope she doesn’t mind. You can see more on her blog.

Josie, Waterstones manager, she and her staff did us so proud. Thanks to her and everyone at Waterstones.

With Jess, fellow writer, RNA member, friend and Nell’s critique partner.

The fab display arranged by Waterstones. They couldn’t get my third book Just Say Yes because (they said) it is being reprinted! TWO lots of press came – we felt like real celebs (well, I can dream.)

    Hooray! It looks great, and both of you look every inch the glamorous authors! I wish I could have come.

  3. Nell Dixon Says:

    It was brilliant – crazy but nice in the best possible way – I’ll email you some pics and I’ve put some on facebook too.

    Sounds like a great success – and wonderful that the press came in force.

    Wow, looks like you had a great time. Paparazzi too? You celebs 🙂

  7. Phillipa Says:

    Hiya everyone. Thanks for making the day such a success, whether you were there in person or not – and Tam, I’m not sure the Express & Star count as paps but it was so funny, seeing shoppers pausing outside Waterstones wondering the the flipping ‘eck we were!

  8. Moira Says:

    So pleased for you – and Nell – that everything went so well. You must always have a lingering terror that no-one’s going to show up – I know I would …

  9. Phillipa Says:

    Moira – ah, but we have our own mini ‘Army’ who support us. 🙂

  10. Jessica Foote Says:

    When I arrived you were being papped by the press guy and it looked very glamorous! So glad to have come and had a bit of a catch-up. I didn’t know about the reprinting, though — congrats! x

  11. Jude Says:

    Tres chic and glam. I so wish I could’ve been there and glad it was so wonderful! Ah the lovely Jess there too. I know this launch is going to spark even more wonderful things for you both. What a bash! What a duo!
