I now have a date for my book launch at the Oxfam Bookshop in Swansea – Wednesday 18th April at 7pm. The arrangements are coming along well. My daughters are going to make cookies, and maybe mini cupcakes. My illustrator’s mum is going to make non-alcoholic punch. And the shop will provide teas and coffees.
I’m going to talk about how I came to write the book and some of the fascinating stories I found, and my illustrator Carrie is going to talk about the illustrations. The shop have also offered a week-long exhibition of her drawings, which will be great for her and good publicity.
And I hope I will be signing lots of copies of the book bought on the night.
