Once again, it’s cake time. Thanks to some lovely friends in Oxford and the wonderful staff of Blackwell’s bookshop, we were able to enjoy another round of cupcakes, Joshua cake and a glass of fizzy pink wine.
Scholastic Children’s Books were on hand with shiny new Joshua Files enamel badges and glow-in-the-dark wristbands for all, as you can see if you look closely on the photos in the slideshow below.
You can listen to a special podcast from Radio Litopia which features the panel discussion and Q&A session from the launch party, featuring me with Peter Cox of Redhammer Management and BBC Oxford’s Bill Heine. (Press ‘Play’ below)
So, to everyone who attended, which was your favourite cupcake? (I was very torn between chocolate hazelnut and lime cheesecake.)
Fellow author Mark Robson has also mentioned the ZERO MOMENT launch party on the Trapped By Monsters Blog, where he’s giving away a free signed copy of the neon paperback edition of ZERO MOMENT.
And Susie Day, lolarious YA author of Big Woo and Girl Meets Cake, also my partner-in-crime in bacon-sarnie-and-coffee consumption, has blogged about the ZERO MOMENT launch party at susieday.com with another lovely photo.
