THE WISH BY ALEX BROWN
I went along with my friend Lynda to Whitstable for the launch of The Wish by Alex Brown. It was also the book that I won on a giveaway over at Goodreads. As soon as I met Alex I knew her book was going to be good as she is such a lovely person and of course only the best writers live in Whitstable!
There was also cakes! These were made by Sally Laker another Whitstable lady, these looked too nice to eat but I managed one and the odd glass of prosecco, the two most wanted things at a book launch well apart from the book and the author.
I will be doing my review for the book later in the week but I can tell you that it is really good, I do like to read a nice, happy book every so often and this would be the perfect one to take on holiday.
I am amazed at the time some authors take to actually get a book deal without giving up, that must be so hard to keep getting rejection letters and then being able to just carry on, but I am so pleased they all did as we have sound outstanding talent at the moment in the book industry, so please support them by buying their books and also giving a review, even if it is just that you like it as it all helps to get the book out there in the big world. Review here on Amazon.
I would also like to give a mention to Harbour Books as they do so much advertising and promotion events for the authors and as they say every little helps. I could spend ages browsing all the books in this shop, maybe I should ask for a comfy chair and a coffee lol.
Hope your week is going well.
