Exhausted, that’s how I felt when my Facebook launch party ended. Three hours of  chatting online, asking trivia questions, keeping track of winners, and answering questions.

This is the story of how I created and hosted my first launch party.

Preparation for the event.

But we had a lovely day walking the Pembrokeshire Coast today in glorious sunshine. All that said – I’ve never done a book tour of my own – joined in a few but not my own – so this post was great to read. In danger of waffling now so will say goodnight – it’s turned one o’clock, I see. jx

We have fourteen authors coming – now that’s fun!!. Good luck with your book signing event – it’ll be interesting to read about it.Jx
