Yesterday I had the loveliest day in London, celebrating the publication of The Guilty Couple with my publishing team.
Me outside the News Building that houses HarperCollins.
I went in, stood at the reception desk and then suddenly noticed that the enormous screen at the top of the escalator was welcoming me to HarperCollins, and then it showed me the book trailer for The Guilty Couple! A real wow moment for sure!
Here’s a closer look:
We went up to the offices and toasted the publication (a day early) of The Guilty Couple and I was given a lovely silver handcuffs bracelet that mimics the handcuffs embossed on the board of the hardback.
Afterwards we went out for lunch at Dishoom and burnt our mouths off with the chilli chicken starter (not pictured!)
Then it was round the corner to Goldsboro Books to sign first edition hardbacks of The Guilty Couple (available to purchase here!)
Then it was time to head home, grab some dinner and get ready for the Reading Party. It was a lot of fun. Everyone read beautifully and there was a lot of laughter during the Q&A and bookplate signing. If you haven’t been to a Reading Party I highly recommend it.
Today I will mostly be preparing for my Facebook Live Launch Party tonight at 7pm. There will be a brief intro to, and reading from, The Guilty Couple then lots of fun and games and prizes to be won, followed by a Q&A. To join the fun follow me on Facebook and you’ll receive a notification when I go live.
There are additional prizes to be won if you have a copy of The Guilty Couple in your hands (hardback or ebook) so if you haven’t got yours yet do pop into Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, WH Smith’s, Costco or Waterstones today and grab one!
Huge thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered one, particularly those of you who ordered via Max Minerva’s. I hope you liked your personalised messages and doodles.
Hopefully see you tonight for the live launch!
