its my book launch

Today, Friday 22nd, 7:30 pm,

I’d love to knock off work at 12:30, and spend the afternoon in the sun, relaxing, preparing …
but it’s been a hell week and the weekend is packed.

Update: The launch was neat. Nice mix of people from many of my walks of life. Amy and Kaleb played some live music, including some Jack Johnson requests. Oh yes, the juice ran dry and the books sold out. Now I’m trying to get Manna Christchurch to tell Manna Auckland and ….

  2. It was a great experience playing last night with Kaleb, almost like a “first gig”! Lots of fun. Thanks for the opportunity. Great the books sold out. I didn’t get a chance to write my name down for one. Just as well I’m friends with the author!

  4. Sounds good. Would love to! I’m sure we’ll make less mistakes next time! Glad we brought some creative class to your special evening! It was a privilege.

  5. It was great to attend my first ever book launch and to think I knew the author too. Once we got past the very scary door security – they didn’t want any riff raff like us at your classy do. Thanx for the invite. Feel privileged to have a signed copy. Have to start reading and musing now. The music was awesome I thought and the juice really nice.
