Paris Book Launch - Thursday December 13
Back in Pareeee after three weeks touring the homeland launching and promoting the book. It all went swimmingly. Some great in-store events, a champagne-soaked launch soirée in Sydney, a couple of book signings and a whole lot of media interviews. Lucky I never tire of talking about myself ;)
Now that the book has been well and truly launched in Australia, it's time to give it a good ol' launch event here in Paris.
The good folk at WH Smith - the English bookstore on Rue de Rivoli, near the Place de la Concorde - have kindly offered to host the launch soirée, my new best friends at Thompson Estate Wines are very kindly providing alcoholic refreshment on the evening and the Lido de Paris have come to the party with the provision of a handful of Lido dancers for the event and a special two-for-the-price-of-one voucher to see the Lido revue for every book launch attendee. Oh - and I will be there signing books, with the Showgirl in tow.
All in all, it's shaping up to be quite the shin-dig. And you are all cordially invited to attend.
For those of you who live in Paris, or those of you passing through in the weeks leading up to the book launch, be sure to check out the "A Town Like Paris" window display at WH Smith that the creative types at the Lido are creating - using old Lido costumes and assorted other glamorous bits and pieces.
WH Smith are also taking pre-orders for the book - for those of you who wish to reserve a copy. Visit www.whsmith.fr.
