7.10.2014 Chapter One Launch Night

After all the trials and tribulations with the publishers we finally got to launch our first anthology, Chapter One, on 7.10.2014 at St Thomas Cafe, Chatsworth Road, as part of the Chatsworth Road Festival 2014.  The rehearsals in the preceding weeks and the sound test earlier that day ensured that the whole evening went smoothly, with ten writers performing for two hours to an audience of about thirty five.  The video and music compilation was started at 1840, copies of the books were displayed on the greeters table outside the main room, and the countdown began.

The tables were decorated with sweet treats and info cards about each author:

Some bought a copy and started reading before the performance started!:

And the evening went rather well:

Though it is still very strange being asked to sign copies!
