The World’s SMALLEST Book Launch (eventually!)
The last month has been a total blur and it has just occurred to me that I haven’t got around to writing a report on the World’s SMALLEST Book Launch.
I live in the lovely village of Lambley, in Nottinghamshire. As Conditional Love is my first book, I didn’t really have much of a marketing budget, but really wanted to mark its publication with an event to mark the occasion.
Hence I chose the prestigious village telephone box as the venue and named the event, ‘The World’s SMALLEST Book launch’!
The day started with great excitement in the Bramley household when the BBC called and interviewed me on the Radio Nottingham Mark Dennison show – great fun, but very nerve-racking!
The sun made an appearance after two days of rain and we were able to put up our gazebos and bunting without getting soaked! Thanks to some very kind people, the Maclachlans for lending us their lawn for the morning.
The Nottingham Post turned up to photograph the Mayor of Gedling cutting the ribbon and making his little speech and then I signed copies of the book in the phonebox! We had around 50 guests, who all enjoyed a chat in the sunshine and a slice of cake.
I don’t think I will ever forget my first book launch; we had such a good day and fabulous support from friends, family and neighbours. The World’s SMALLEST Book Launch made a big impression!
