One of the great things about being a writer is finding lots of writerly friends - and being invited to parties when their newest book is launched. I love a book launch! And yesterday's launch of Emily Eases her Wheezes! was special for several reasons:
1. It's the newest book When I See Grandma illustrator, Leigh Hedstrom has illustrated (her 3rd book now).
2. It's a new book from my publisher, Wombat Books, and written by my friend, Hope FM presenter, Katrina Roe.
3. The location was divine - you couldn't beat the view - and so apt - a beach party (complete with beach towels to snuggle in and listen to the story) for a book about Emily the Elephant who takes to swimming to overcome her asthma and enjoys going to the beach with her friends!
4. it's not every day you get to publicize and sell your own book at someone else's launch - but here is my book alongside Katrina's two - representing Leigh's trifecta! Thank you, Katrina for your generosity - and I hope Emily is a swimming success!
