"The Hardest Thing To Do" book launch party

Well we had our launch party . . .

. . . it was really good fun!


dress code strictly medieval . . .


 . . . in keeping with a novel set in the fourteenth century . . .


The medieval music was superbulous!


Our church felt like just the right place to be . . .


Some of us were extra angelic for the occasion! ~


The Badger and I met through the Hawk & the Dove novels - he was my editor for the first edition in the UK back at the end of the 1980s!  So it felt like something had come full circle to be there together tonight . . .


Along with crusaders and admiring maidens . . .


Sir John de Walton and his fair ladye . . .


. . . various members of the aristocracy . . .


We had a fab story corner . . .






. . . for telling the story Who's the fool now? from The Hawk & the Dove trilogy to set the scene for The Hardest Thing To Do . . .




In fact I think overall you could say . . .


We had a good time!


Some more pics tomorrow!

Yay, pics! It was so much fun, Ember, what party could be better than a mix of music, dressing up, good stories, good food and really groovy people in a beautiful place? I'm really pleased that I was able to be a part of it. And I will buy a book, I will, just as soon as my money comes through!

It was a really good night, and the costumes were fantastic. The church has such lovely acoustics to sing and play in.

It was good to hear the chapter from The Wounds of God again. It was significant for me as a young person in getting me thinking about theology and philosophy.
