I’m also taking a step back and reviewing the event as a whole. My first thought is that releasing a book involves so much more than writing it and throwing a party. Yes, the lengthy process of editing and negotiations over cover design – all the itsy-bitsy aspects of producing the final version – is complex and time-consuming and I can’t thank LizCarter at Resolute Books enough for all her input and support.
The event itself was something else again, involving lots of people and moving parts especially as we weren’t launching just one book, nor even two, but two books AND a business. This required mega amounts of coordination and a first-class honours degree in organisation. Thankfully, the members of Resolute Books have this in bucket loads.
Thanks to everyone at Resolute Books and fellow Resolute authors: Paul Trembling, Sue Russell, Ruth Leigh Writes, Edward de Chazal, and Sarah Nicholson. We were spoilt for choice with a superb selection of meats, pies and local cheeses from Framptons Of Bridport, and delicious canapés and St James cake by talented Nick Leigh.
The very gifted Jason Smith of Social Shapes organised photographs of the event (herding authors is no easy task I can tell you) and ensured it was recorded for posterity. Lovely guests travelled from far and wide and bought many books (thank you!) and we had eight dogs to add to the joy of it all. Congratulations to Paul Trembling for his release of his chilling crime novel, LOCAL KILLER and to Resolute Books for making it a day to remember.
