(many more photos from both launch parties on my Flickr Gemini Force One album.)
Time for a quick recap on the launch of Orion Children’s Book’s edition of GEMINI FORCE ONE: BLACK HORIZON. For long-term followers of what is now admittedly a very occasional blog, the Blackwell’s cake party will be familiar. But this time, as a special treat for some Kickstarter backers and book bloggers, Waterstone’s Piccadilly also invited us to put on a London bash.
As we say in the publishing world – Hurrah!
In another first, I also decided that the Oxford party would be even more fun to share the occasion with my good friend and fellow children’s author Sally Nicholls. Sally’s latest title – AN ISLAND OF OUR OWN – was published the same day as BLACK HORIZON.
Jamie Anderson and I have been booked for a number of literary festivals and conventions this year – to date we can go public about Hay Festival, Andercon and SciFi Wales. We’d already had a trial run of our ‘festival event’ at the fab SciFi Scarborough, so the Waterstone’s Piccadilly launch gave us a chance to hone our double act a little more.
Next stop – Hay Festival!
Hope you enjoy the photos. If you’d like to follow updates more regularly, you can add me on Twitter or Facebook – links on the right of the website!
