What a day we had yesterday on sparkling Sydney Harbour! 180 of my friends came along to help us launch, on a launch, my fourth adventure, Alice-Miranda At Sea. There was a delicious afternoon tea with sandwiches and slices and cakes. The weather was calm and my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey signed LOTS of books – although she said she felt a little seasick for a while from looking down for so long. We even had a celebrity with us onboard, former Australian test cricketer and all round lovely guy, Glenn McGrath and his gorgeous daughter Holly and wife Sarah. Holly is a fan of the books. It was great to see so many people and I really want to thank everyone who came along and supported us. Linsay Knight from Random House who publishes the Alice-Miranda books did the official honours and the wonderful people from the Novella Bookshop sold all the books and arranged the launch. Jacqueline’s fabulous editor Kimberley Bennett was there too and so were lots of her family and friends. I can’t wait to start planning the next launch – which we are going to hold on top of a skyscraper!
Have a great week,
Lots of love,
