The Champagne and Strawberry Book Launch


 My close writing friend Avril Joy and I had a great Sunday in Durham celebrating the coincidence of the launch of our very different books about our writing process.

Our books are both out on Kindle this week and out in Paperback next week.

We meet regularly to talk and to write together and encourage each other. Avril actually writes beautifully about this process in her book.

But today was to be a pure celebration. And where better to celebrate that in the beautiful Durham City? This is an old haunt – and an old inspiration - of mine .and features in several of my novels. A great place to celebrate.

 The day was a bit damp but that only added a certain sheen to the lovely old streets and to our celebration.


We started in the Saddler Café with strawberry tarts and coffee. 

We looked at our books on Kindle and reflected on the amazing creative processes  that allow us to share our work with loyal and lovely readers far and wide. A magical process for all writers.

Not reallu us going to the champagne bar!

Then we moved on to the champagne bar ...

and toasted our books and ourselves and buzzed with new ideas, new projects and renewed our optimism about – well, just everything.

So just what was it that we are celebrating?
