Story of a Book Launch – I Heart London


It’s been the most ridiculous few days and I really wanted to share some of the pictures from the I Heart London events with you. I should point out none of them were taken by professionals, none of them have been sanctioned by my publishers/agents/publicists and all of them show me experiencing varying degrees of drunkeness or hangover. Enjoy!

I may or may not have stolen this poster board from the party… this is just before we bumped into Ian Gruffudd. I told him I loved Ringer. He didn’t care.

Awesome people buying an acceptable to the publisher book from a hungover author. Score.

Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing few days. For those of you who came out to say hi, it was fantastic to meet you and for everyone who came in mint jeans only to listen to me whine about wanting some mint jeans, I got some from TopShop today. Twenty-five quid. Jobs a good ‘un.

As for the rest of the weekend, I’m so incredibly rock and roll that it’s 7.45pm and I’m in my pjs in my hotel room, listening to The National and having a lovely glass of white wine.

I need to save my strength for tomorrow. It was lovely of London to put on a jubilee for me, honestly, a drink would have been more than enough.http://0
