Me at Atlantis BooksMany thanks to everyone who came to the London launch event for The Monster’s Wife last Thursday at the marvellous Atlantis Bookshop in London! It was a lovely evening and I had so much fun seeing old friends and meeting new people too. In the end I even enjoyed the reading, having been a little bit nervous beforehand! Bali and Geraldine, the mother and daughter team who own Atlantis gave everyone such a warm welcome (and kept their wine glasses topped up unstintingly). I couldn’t have hoped for a better event for the book.

street partyAtlantis is ‘the oldest Independent Occult Bookshop in London’, a fantastic gem of an indie just off of Oxford Street. It’s full of unusual books about magic, witchcraft, celtic lore and the occult and was the perfect venue to launch The Monster’s Wife. Geraldine and Bali are lovely and provided wine and cheese followed by a bit of a street party, which continued in the Museum Tavern nearby. One of the biggest highlights for me was having my almost whole family there, including my little nieces Chloe and Annie who provided a great deal of entertainment. Chloe (aged 4 and a half) helped me sign the books we sold, so there are some special editions out there decorated with tiny portraits of each person the book was signed to…
