Last Saturday I celebrated the launch of my new book Theseus & the Mother-in-Law and other Myths & Legends with a gathering of close friends and family in my hometown of Leigh-on-Sea.
Once again my plate-smashingly brilliant mother did all the hard work and laid on a magnificent Greek feast, which included such Greek culinary delights as moussaka (naturally), spanakopita, galaktoboureko, cherry cheesecake, three kinds of chocolate cake (we cater for all!), two types of flan, dips, salad and lots and lots of ouzo.
Like at my last book launch, I noticed that people were far more interested in the food than my literary endeavours. I think I made a huge mistake by placing the books away from the buffet table. Next time, I will stick them IN the moussaka.
Jokes aside, I was hugely grateful for all the support I received for my new book and very moved by everyone’s encouraging kind words. You can all come again!
If you enjoy the book, please consider telling your friends or posting a short review on Amazon. Word of mouth is an author’s best friend and much appreciated.
Thank you all! xoxo
