Oh what a night we had at the print launch of THE VINEYARD IN THE HILLS last Thursday. Can you believe more than 50 people came to hear me rabbit on about my writing life and writing journey? I ‘rabbited’ on for so long about baking fails, painting fails and writing fails, I almost forgot to talk about the writing success! (ie, the book!
The whole evening felt magical to me. So great to get the opportunity to launch my book locally amongst family and friends, and then to find new readers from local bookclubs, and friends of friends who were dragged came willingly, along.
Thank you to Fermoy Estate wines of Margaret River who sponsored the wines for the evening. We definitely enjoyed the liquid refreshment 🙂 Biggest thank you in the world to Pauline and Keith McLeod of the brilliant, fabulous, amazing, independent THE MARGARET RIVER BOOKSHOP!
Mostly, I’ve just been blown away by the people who bought my book at the launch, who’ve let me know they bought the book from a shop, have spotted the book, are reading or have read the book, and enjoyed the story. It is just the very best feeling in the world to have someone tell you they like the story you spent so many months slaving over.
I’m offering a giveaway on my Facebook page and here on the blog. I’ll announce the winners in the first week of October. To enter, you just need to snap a picture of THE VINEYARD IN THE HILLS and either tweet it to me @lily_lilymalone or post on your Facebook (friend me first if you like) and tag me, or email me at lilymalone@ mail.com
Above I’ve put together a collage of some of the pics of the launch, and photos that have been coming in so far.
Thanks for celebrating this very special time with me 🙂
