My book launch has to be one of the hottest events of the year! With temperatures hitting 30C during the day, I wondered if anyone would turn up for the send-off of my latest book, A Novel Solution. I shouldn’t have worried, friends and family crowded into the picturesque Mostly Books bookshop in Abingdon to help me celebrate.

What happens at a book launch? Just about whatever the author wants to happen, I guess. And I wanted family, friends, fizz, the minimum of formalities and the maximum of cake. And I got my wishes!

Thanks to everyone who turned out on such a hot evening. Thank you especially to Sarah at Mostly Books who hosted the event and kept everything flowing smoothly. And thank you, everyone who has been with me during the creation and publication of A Novel Solution. As I said at the time, I couldn’t do it without you. Thank you, everyone!

I’ll leave you with a selection of photographs to give you a flavour of the fun evening.
