Bound and launched...
I've had a wonderful evening launching Bound out into the world. A fabulous group of friends, family, colleagues and book lovers gathered at the University Book Shop for a most convivial evening. It was made extra special by the fact my Mum was down from Napier.
Thanks to Prof. Jean Fleming who launched the book for me, said flattering things and gave away a few of the secrets behind my double life (or quadruple life, depending on who you talk to) One of the things about launches I love is seeing the different groups of beloved people in my life converge, and discover how Dunedin is such a small town and they all know each other. There were my family, fencing buddies, university folk, writer mates and fellow school parents, amongst others, all very happily yacking away.
So I feel very happy and content Bound is out in the world. Tomorrow I'll start feeling nervous about the reviews!
Oh, and guess what? This is my 500th blog post. Thanks for dropping by!
