Last week was the book launch for the Terrible, Horrible, Smelly Pirate and it was amazing. the weird thing about book launches and the thing I'll never be comfortable with is how you feel like a celebrity for a couple of hours, very strange. You sit there while people line up to have you sign their books! This was the best book launch I've been to. There were a ton of kids which is great and they were all having a great time. There was singing and food and the authors did a reading. i had to give a speech and as usual I wasn't prepared but it went fine. It was at the Alderny Gate Library and everyone was amazing there, their experience in giving puppet shows and telling stories really comes in handy on occasions like this! Thanks to everyone there. I'm really proud of this goofy book. And I still have copies available to sell myself, so if you want a copy signed by me just click on the Buy One button on my blog, I'll even draw you a pirate....
