Writerly Musings :: Mid June Update

isogahlaunch 044This weekend, my friend Sammy had her book launch, at a cat cafe.

Need I say more?

It was brilliant.

I’d never attended a book launch before, but if more were like this, I’d definitely be attending them more often. It was a fairly small event — we had a meal and drinks, then went to the cafe for cakes and tea — and spent nearly 3 hours with 11 cats.

It was great to spend time with other writers — both known faces and new people, and to discuss the process of how this book was born.

I’m currently typing this with them on; trying to ignore the odd purple edges to my vision, and the glare of the blue-light protection on the lens — Patiently awaiting the super powers I’ve been told they will grant me.

How was your weekend?
