I went to Roz and Stephen's book launch yesterday.
It was Mint.
I mean, obviously I expecting something good - Roz is already part Mint, like my self, but it was, overall, proper mint, how. So there.
Great little basement theatre setting with bar and barman I got to confuse and then befriend, we even swapped rum drinking advice.
But no, just, great - Becky Owens was a perfect choice, simple piano driven songs, really emotive and she did really well getting a gang of (reasonably) sober adults to make trumpeting noises. Great stuff.
Oh yeah, and there books and things. Plus another really good idea - having actors read perform sections of the two books. I liked that. Cos there is no way I'd be able to read my stuff out. I had to be dragged from the darkest corner I could find to talk to people... Honest.
Anyway, it got me thinking - What do I want for my launch?
I've already decided on lunch - that was Greggs... Hmmm Greggs. But now I'm thinking - Launch.
What to do what to do?
Tonto say I can have a go thinking up ideas, and they assure me we have plenty of time. But even so... I'm impatient...
I've set up a 'Bloglite' type thing and have put a link somewhere over on the right there.
I want some ideas. I want some suggestions. I want someone to volunteer to do things for me because impatience does not necessarily translate into energy. And I'm a very, very poor planner.
So, when you have a minute dive over and do something helpful :)
And once again, Roz, Stephen: Mint. Just, you know, Mint.
I met my Most Sage and Wise Mentor yesterday.
I was terrified - what if she didn't like me? What if this, finally, was the end of the mint. I was hiding and shaking a little little.
She was, is, lovely. I'm so pleased to stay part of the mint, so pleased to make a new friend.
Caroline you are proper lovely, how x
Why I wrote Disraeli Avenue for charity - The houses on Disraeli Avenue all looked the same, the same shape, the same size but behind each coloured front door there was a story, a secret, a need....
