My new book ‘The Lost Journey Homeward’ has been well and truly launched – on Sunday 14th June. I decided to do this At Home – in my own garden in Dorset. My last two books had their launch parties in London – the first was held on a houseboat in the Thames and the second took place in an auction gallery at Bonhams in Knightsbridge. This time my husband, Michael, organised the whole thing: drinks from a bar that was a genuine Edwardian handcart, delicious canapés, staff to serve, fine weather, children running around, balloons, ice cream and – most important of all – many friends from South West. All I had to do was provide the books, get someone to sell them – and then sign them. Friends usually buy my books; the harder job is to get strangers to buy them – in bookshops and online. But on my third book launch, we were all outside, the sun shone and it was fun!
