Photos from Launch of We/She

That was quite a party! Wonderful readings a HUGE audience and we set a new record for Blackwell’s ‘most books sold at an event’.

Here are a few photos, I didn’t take many on account of doing all the other things a publisher does at an event. If anyone has more they’d like to share let me know!

 

Videos from launch of Five by Five

Here, for your delectation, all in one place, are the videos from the launch of Five by Five.

(Also – if you are quick, we found 4 more damaged copies – nothing that makes the books unreadable, just not saleable. claim your FREE copy here – if you felt like doing us a review as a thank you we won’t say no!)

If watching these videos makes you sad you missed the event, you could always come to our next one, the launch of We/She!

Katy Darby reads from The Nuisance
