A Cornish Affair is Launched...

Wow, what a day. First thank you for the amazing amount of support on Facebook and Twitter. It has been overwhelming. Thank you...

So yesterday...first was a celebration lunch with my wonderful editor  (still gives me a thrill to say that!) and sitting in reception the only book on display was A Cornish Affair (to be fair it's under renovation and they probably had mine out because they knew I was coming in...but how to make an author feel special!)
A Cornish Affair in Orion's reception area!
Then back to flat to collect DS2 who was allowed to come out early to help and boy did he! So we walked down Kensington High Street and outside Waterstones we found this...

Then inside the fabulous Michael the Waterstones Kensington High Street's events manager and my wonderful friend Georgia were already at work transforming the space for the party...
DS2 pouring the all important bubbles...

Georgia and DS2 mucking around
Then back to proper 'work'....

So wonderful to have two books on display...A Cornish Affair  & The Cornish House

Some of the delicious scones made by Emma Walker
So many friends came and this year I actually had a chance to chat to them! Also I was so touched by the the young Mt. Holyoke alums who came to the launch. They had only met me last saturday (MHC is brilliant!) And there were some fab shoes and well, I want that handbag!
Total handbag lust...

And finally the part of the evening that scares me most...the talk and the reading...

It was a fun evening and now off to book signings in Cornwall tomorrow and a talk at the St Ives Library on Tuesday evening...and of course working on book three, A Cornish Stranger.

Great party! Hope it all went well.

Curiously, i spent many an hour in St Ives library when I was about 7.

Just downloaded A Cornish House. Next on the list.

Hi John - it was a great party and lucky you to have spent so much time in St ives let alone their wonderful library. Hope you enjoy The Cornish House!

Brilliant, Liz!

Lovely to see a good RNA contingent present and that your DS is as daft, but also as supportive, as mine.

Good luck with the sales!

Liz Fenwick said...

Alison - the RNA is ACE! Yes, DS2 is great, they all but just couldn't make it! Pleased to know you have the support of you son. It makes the world wonderful!
