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!

So excited to be launching
on 16th August at 6.45pm We/She
Blackwells, 50 High Holborn London WC1V 6EP
(nearest tube Chancery Lane/ Holborn)
is our latest We/She Liars’ League collaboration and the second of our #WomenVote100 tributes – although there isn’t a suffragette in sight. Instead we play around with traditional ideas about women, and turn a few (actually, a lot of) myths on their heads.
It’s free and there will be readings and refreshments, and, obviously, signed books to buy. Authors Reading…
Joanne LM Williams, Arike Oke, Carolyn Eden, Katy Darby,
Ilora Choudhury, Fiona Salter, Elizabeth Stott, Rosalind Stopps
Other authors are attending, so there will be lots of people to sign a copy of the book for you.
Expect dragons, opera singers, mothers… and Elvis
The launch coincides with the 39th anniversary of the death of Elvis. What has that to do with a book of stories by women, you ask… come along and find out!
One of my favourite moments in the publishing process – when
I have the only copies… apart from the distributor of course.
(In case Michele sees this we did NOT break your plate. Clever fakery!)
will be launched at We/She
50 High Holborn
on Thursday 16th August. More on that later.
