LAUNCH PARTY: UNDER THE MOONLIGHT
11.00AM SATURDAY 30 APRIL 2022
Wow! I am still buzzing after an incredible launch this morning. Joined by fabulous friends, family, fans and customers, I had a tribe of little helpers during the reading - Dymocks was filled with HOWLS, SCREECHES, ROARS and THUMPS.
Everyone went home with swag bags filled with stickers, bookmarks, colouring and craft and the most beautiful moosey cookies.
Today was even more joyous as we celebrated my parents last launch party at their bookshop before they retire after almost 19 years (and several hundred book events!)
VIRTUAL LAUNCH PARTY: COOKIE
SATURDAY 16 OCTOBER 2021
Book launching during a pandemic is a bit of a strange thing!
But we had a beautiful morning of books and cookies and craft with some friends. Thanks to Dymocks Canberra for the stock. Head there for signed copies.
Recipes for Fudgy Choc Chip Cookies and Peanut Bacon dog treats, as well as printable kids' activities, craft and affirmation cards can be found here.
LAUNCH PARTY: WHERE THE HEART IS
11.00AM SATURDAY 26 JUNE 2021
A huge Where the Heart Is window display greeted people at Dymocks Canberra. The decorations continued in the children's section with posters, jungle plants and penguins.
Irma did a very animated reading, I talked about art and craft. The store was packed full of enthusiastic kids and adults, and some very supportive faces from the kidlit community.
Kids enjoyed Irma's penguin cupcakes, an ocean of mini blue cupcakes by Dymocks staff member Meredith and delicious marshmallow chocolate fish while Irma and I signed books. They all got to take home bags of stickers, bookmarks and penguin craft, and of course their very own copies of Where the Heart Is.
