Dorcas does Dulwich (and Crystal Palace, of course)

Many, many thanks to The Bookseller Crow on the Hill for giving me such a warm welcome and in such cool surroundings! And although she will probably hit me - thanks must be given to Debi, whose devotion to this event has been unstinting.
What a fantastic night. Spent more time yapping with all the lovely people who popped in, than I did taking photo's, but here are a few....





Debi Alper and 'whodunnit queen' Victoria Blake. How cool are these gals? Very.

Zoe Fairbairns, her lovely partner and the fantastic Debi. So good to talk!



Skint (that's me publisher) bending Martin Millar's ear. I had a 'bend' as well - what a great bloke. Read half of 'The Good Fairies of New York' on the train home.
Sarah May came along and added to the mix as well (The Rise and Fall of the Queen of Suburbia).


Then there was gorgeous Cailleach (above), who flew all the way from Ireland - what a cookie! Her friend Karen was a star as well!

There were representatives from local writing groups, reading groups and a a lovely guy called Marc who came along because he had seen the advert on Britblog!


Hope someone else got some more photos of all the lovely people who turned out on a bitterly cold December night. Those who didn't make it were remembered, and those who did had a drink and bought the odd book!




Oh, and me and the purple one.


Still reeling - off for some much needed sleep.

Hit you, babe? Would I???

Just read all about it on Debi's blog.

Sorry I couldn't be there, Minx, but I can assure you that I was there in spirit!

Looks like you all had a great time.

Wow, sounds like it was great and almost feel like I was there what with all the photos and reports. Where are you planning on launching next? Thought of Paris?

Minx said...

It was fab! Debi was fab, Skint was fab, Cailleach was fab (not enough time!)and so was everyone else!
Where next? Who knows?
