Publication day!

It’s here! Note to Boy was launched into the world – and the bookshops – on 23 July 2020.

No actual champagne and nibbles party being possible, the splendid people at the independent bookshop, Mostly Books, arranged a launch via Zoom. More than 50 people crammed into the virtual venue, tucking into the imaginary cocktails and macaroons. Great to see so many smiling faces – some from Italy, Germany, the US, not to mention the wilds of Cornwall. But they weren’t just there to enjoy themselves. I had to answer some of their probing questions too!

Star of the evening was the comedy legend that is Paul Mayhew Archer, who interrogated me most charmingly about bits of the book I hadn’t even noticed myself. You can see the interview here.

Thank you for helping me celebrate. I had a great time. I hope you did. Now it’s up to Eloise and Bradley!

Event – a virtual celebration

Sue Clark will be marking the publication of Note to Boy on 23 July with a virtual book launch, complete with imaginary twiglets and a choice of computer-generated cocktails. Organised in conjunction with the independent bookshop, Mostly Books of Abingdon – let’s hear it for indie bookshops! – the event will include a conversation between Sue and Paul Mayhew Archer, the comedy writer and co-writer of the Vicar of Dibley and, latterly, stand-up comedian. There’ll also be a short reading from the book and an opportunity for questions.

Sue says: ‘After waiting so long to write my first novel and get it out there, I’m certainly not going to allow its publication to go un-celebrated.’
