Also the INAUGURAL BOOK LAUNCH FOR THE BOOK WOLF
Subtitled AT THE AGE OF FIFTY I FINALLY GET TO BE A PAGE THREE GIRL!
…being introduced by the Book Wolf …a surprise letter of congratulations
from the publisher – organised by a friend
Thank you to my beautiful audience for your attendance at my book launch. This is something I have not done before, and I was not sure how it would go. Your praise for my work, and encouragement of my courage for making it public, is inspiring and very humbling: it gives me increased confidence that my story has ‘a life of its own’, and its depiction through my poetry and art is worthy of the public eye.
I found this event very moving, your respectful silence as you reflected on your own lives in the context of mine was nothing short of profound. It was also a lot of fun (despite my nerves, which I’m told did not show – phew!). Thank you so much to those who bought my book – it was lovely for me to do the whole author-signing for the first time.
I look forward to doing more author talks in places further afield than my home town – watch this space!

Thank you to the fabulous Anja Tusek of Stash Converters for the amazing jacket she crafted! It was the perfect garment for this event because to wear it is SO uplifting!! https://www.facebook.com/Stash-Converter-120400674983642/
