Double Book Launch

On Monday night I was privileged to attend the double book launch of 'From Zaftig to Aspie' by DJ Kirkby and 'Motorcycles, Ducks and Crispy Sweet Apples' by Christopher I King.

DJ spoke most eloquently.

We had a performance of 'The Shrek Rap' which was written by clever Casdok.

We had fantastic music.

And I had a lovely time with fellow bloggers Leigh, Carol and Troy. And also the Crafty Gardener - who managed to escape my photos.

It was a wonderful evening. Huge congratulations to Denyse and Chris. I can't wait to read the books now.

Hi honey
Great photos! The first I've seen. I am glad you had a good time and so pleased that you came to celebrate with us. I will do a post on Sunday all about it with links to photos and maybe a link to YouTube too. xo

Glad you enjoyed it.

Troy said...

Yes it was an excellent evening. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was great to meet you and the other bloggers.

Cathy said...

Oh you're lucky, I'd love to have been able to go. I've ordered Denyse's book, but I'd especially have liked to hear the Shrek Rap live!


Jen said...

Oh, I'm so jealous! I've got The Book sitting here on my bookshelf, waiting its turn. Although I'm in Sussex, it was just that bit too far to get to :(

Lovely to share it a little through your photos.

It looks like it was a great evening. DJ's book is on it's way and am looking forward to it. Great photos, nice to put some faces to names. Maybe I'll make it to a blogging event one day.

Hiya Helen, it was a great evening, wasn't it? I JUST made my train thank goodness. It was lovely to meet you and other fellow bloggers.

Pity you didn't know I was coming from Sussex (well, from Ireland in the morning) SpiralSkies or we could have travelled together.

How come I'm not on your photos Helen? I'm not usually backwards in jumping in front of the camera!!

Annie Wicking said...

Good luck to your friends from me.

Great to see your pictures. I hope alls going well with your writing, Helen and have a great weekend.

Thanks for the post and pictures of the book launch. I'm so fed up that I couldn't go, but I do have my Zaftig to Aspie book and it's brilliant.

I'll have to order Chopper's now too.

Pat Posner said...

Glad you had such a lovely time, Helen.

Now...haven't you got some news to share?

HelenMWalters said...

Pat - thanks. And I think I know what news you're talking about. It's in my side bar. Furry nieces and nephews send you lots of hugs and purrs.

Pat Posner said...

Ooh lovely hugs and purrs, thank you, furry gang.

Well, it's a bit hidden there really, Helen. It deserves a much BIGGER announcement than that!
