Okay, on a scale of 1 to 10 about how excited, terrified, thrilled, bewildered, and nervous I am…I’m floating somewhere around the thousand mark!
On Saturday 6th October 2012, I will be having my very first book launch and author signing event. *gulp* Yes, I’m the author in question (still have to pinch myself over that one).
Well, the lovely talented Octavia Karavla, bookworm, advocate of the written word and owner of the most magical little bookshop I’ve ever been to, Octavia’s Bookshop in Cirencester, is hosting my event this Saturday.
Octavia’s Bookshop (24 Black Jack Street, Cirencester) may be small but it’s perfectly formed. A really buzzing prestigious and child friendly bookshop with oak lined shelves, bohemian soft furnishings and a lovely relaxed vibe. http://www.octaviasbookshop.co.uk
It was runner-up in the Telegraph’s Best Small Shops in Britain Awards, was then shortlisted for Best Children’s Independent Bookshop in The Bookseller Industry Awards and Octavia herself was shortlisted for Young Bookseller of the Year and has just been named one of The Bookseller’s ‘Rising Stars’! Wow!
So, this is the wonderful place where little old me, nervous jelly in waiting, will be from 11am until 4pm, talking to customers and signing books!
Seriously thrilled to be having the book launch for White Mountain, book 1 of the Darkling Chronicles, in such an awe inspiring venue. Thank you, Octavia!
I’m so excited for you, only one day to go!! It looks like a really lovely shop I can’t wait to come and celebrate your book launch with you and to explore their shelves, I think my library is going to be expanding tomorrow!!! 😀
It is a gorgeous little bookshop with a wonderfully relaxed bohemian vibe…just up your street sweetie! So excited and really looking forward to meeting you honey! 😀 xx
Well done and good luck. You’ll enjoy it hugely. When it comes to talking about a book you’ve worked hard and slaved over, it sometimes feels like a release to talk about it. I hope you get good weather.
Thank you, Andy. Hope you’re right…just at the nerves stage at the moment! 😀
Congratulations. I love the look of this book shop. I hope it all goes well for you.
Thank you so much, Donna. Yes, it was a tremendous success and an absolute hoot! Had such a great tiime! Thanks honey! 😀 xx
