So I’m having a small party for this little book of mine which has just been released into the wild today. Yes, I am doing a happy dance as I type. No, it isn’t easy.
Details of the launch as follows:
Date: Monday, 2nd August 2010
Time: 7.00pm – 8.30pm
Where: Carlton Library
667 Rathdowne St, Carlton North
The brilliant and ever-gracious Lucy Sussex will be launching Madigan Mine and I might possibly do a (very) short reading. Scrumptious snacks and beverages will be provided and much merriment will be had by all.*
Justin Ackroyd of Slow Glass Books will be selling copies on the night for a special cash-only price of $30 (the regular RRP of $32.99 will apply to credit card purchases). If you happen to acquire the book before the launch and wish me to sign it — bless your little cotton socks! — then please do bring it along. I’ll be more than happy to scribble on anything you put in front of me.
Naturally, you don’t have to bring or buy a book at all. This launch is simply a celebration of a novel I’m very proud of having written, and even prouder of having published, and I’d love to have a whole bunch of awesome folks along to share it with me. So, make a note of the date and spread the world. Everyone is welcome!
While not absolutely required, RSVPs will be appreciated. If you’re on Facebook you can RSVP here. Otherwise, simply contact me by email.
* Further merriment may possibly be had by following me to the Kent Hotel across the road after the launch.
