My book is now published, and I am busy launching it. My first launch took place in my home. Was it a success? Read on to find out more.

Launching The Power of Love.

The official publication date for my new work was Friday 9th September, as from that day it appeared on Amazon for the public to buy, but luckily for me , my publisher managed to get 60 preview copies to me a week before that, as my first book launch was on 2nd September.

It may sound unbelievable, but that was my only free weekend before Christmas, and as it was at the end of the school holidays, the time seemed to be right. I always have a good turn out from friends, and I am truly grateful for their support. We did have a few last minute cancellations, but we also had extra people that we had not expected, so it all worked out very well.

On the Day

We always aim to make our books launches fun, in more of a party spirit, so there is no nicer place to hold it than in our own home. We make punch, and prepare food, and do our best to make sure everyone is introduced to each other, and nobody sits alone.

I know book launches are often held in a hall, with many people invited, but we keep to about a maximum of forty people, a manageable number, even if our house is bursting at the seams! I knew I would be at The Beaney at Canterbury the next day anyway, and this Saturday my third launch will be at Herne bay Library.

There is always that poignant moment, when the hands on the clock reach to the time you expect your guests to arrive, and they haven't. But nobody likes to be the first person to arrive, although someone has to be, and within a short space of time, all our visitors had arrived.

This is what happened

At the beginning I welcomed everyone at the door, then steered them towards where the punch was. The choice was non alcoholic, alcoholic, or wine and beer. It is surprising how many people prefer the punch, it's a bit of fun, and we were even handing out refills.

Then after a while, the food is unveiled. The visitors tuck in, so knowing they have all been fed and watered, I do a very quick speech. It mainly involves thanking everyone concerned, and I do have lots of loyal supporters. Then a quick recap on all my books, and finally a little about the one I am now launching.

I find it works to talk about all my books, as everyone has different tastes, and although I sold mainly the new book, I did in fact sell some of my other titles as well. After a couple of hours or so, people start to go, and we are left with those who want to continue the party. We are free and easy about it, after all it's the weekend.

When I send the invitations I make it clear that nobody is obligated to buy a book, just come and celebrate with us. I don't agree with pressure selling, I am just pleased to welcome friends to my home, and so far it has worked really well, and I have sold a lot of books. So well, that I now need to stock up from my publisher, but that is what he is here for, so I know he won't mind.

To anyone planning a book launch, only you can know what works for you, but whichever way you do it, I wish you every success.
The images are my own, thanks to Youtube for the video.

what an honour it is for me...
to have a celebrity ...walk across my pages of poetry... must be a different cup of tea.. ma'am authoress for thee ...
still I wish to congratulate you and thank you...
for your wonderful works ...LOVE is needed most in this loveless world
where we live only a few years
life then slowly ebbs away ..
who has ever come for ever to stay ...
do tell me you may

even if you come
once in a way
'twill in my heart
for ever
happiness bring
without any string

do come without a ring
I will my doors keep open
for a
LADY
like you
to be able to spare a moment or two...
the world will come to know LOVERME WHO!

The love and affection
you give to the likes of me
will greatness bring
upon may shadowed
broken wing

as you say a word or two
The entire USA
will listen to you
and perhaps some day some one may ask
LOVEr- ME who?

do you know 'twas
lover of poetry who!
