Things that made me happy...

...Launching Containment with grand style surrounded by friends, family and fellow book-lovers.

...Getting to trot out in my flash retro-style green and purple frock with fushia pink cardy.

...That the University Book Shop as well as putting on a fabulous spread of nibbles knew my novels well enough to provide a massive bowl of ToffeePops.

...Watching the well timed and sneaky hit and run raids done on the ToffeePop bowl by the swag of kids present.

...Listening to the kind and thoughtful words of Tania Roxborogh who launched the book for me.

...Hearing the lovely comments about Containment from those who had already devoured it.

...Leaving UBS with a big smile and the sense of having had a fabulous occasion.

It sounds a great launch! I've just had one of the best weekends I've had in a long time...our children put on a suprise party for our 30th wedding annivesary so we had friends from the past and present turning up from near and far and I read Containment which I loved so a wonderful weekend all round! Congratulations on another unputdownable book. Belynda
