Firefly's first 4 titles launched in Aberystwyth

So, it's the end of Blackfin Sky's official UK release week! (Yep. I claimed the entire week.)

I thought I'd update you with a few pics from the Firefly launch event that took place in Aberystwyth Arts Centre on 15th May. I was there, along with Dan Anthony - author of Steve's Dreams - and Heather Dyer - author of The Flying Bedroom, and of course Penny Thomas and Janet Thomas from Firefly Press, and a whole ROOMFUL of brilliant people who came to listen to us talk about our books.

We each said a little bit about the kind of stories we write, then read for a few minutes before people got their copies signed.

It was also great fun getting to meet Sarah Taylor (why didn't I think to grab a photo?!?!), who won the first Firefly writing contest this year with her story Arthur & Me, which is soon to be published by Firefly Press.

As is the tradition at Aberystwyth Arts Centre, I was asked to sign a pillar in the bookshop and quote the first line from Blackfin Sky. Here it is!

Thereafter, many drinks were had...

If you're in the North Wales-ish area and fancy coming to Blackfin Sky's local launch event, you can come along to Prestatyn Library at 7pm this Friday, 23rd May. Hope to see you there!
