A few months ago, Sharon and Marta and I decided to have a book launch together, and I was so excited about the idea. It's nerve wracking organising something like this just by yourself, and hoping people will come... sharing it has been a wonderful way to do it. I've enjoyed our email threads over the past weeks, planning together, and it all culminating in our party last night. Here is the beautiful leaflet that Sharon designed:
We had the launch for our latest books at the wonderful Book & Kitchen on All Saints Road near Ladbroke Grove. It really couldn't have been a more perfect spot - Muna, who owns the shop, had made it look fantastic with her sister Maha and assistant Susannah, and because the weather was lovely people could use the garden and the pavement too. I think it's the nicest bookshop that I know, and extremely worth visiting for anyone who hasn't been yet!
I had a super evening, despite the odd party nerve...
Here are some pics of us, again thanks to Sharon for these.

Ready for buying and drinking.
Emily, Sharon, Marta, me and Catherine!
Thank you Sharon and Marta for being the best book launch buddies I can imagine.
And thank you to everyone who came and supported us, it was wonderful to have you there. I could definitely contemplate doing this again... someday!
