Award winning outback romance
Thank you to everyone who has supported Wedding Bells By The Creek and taken it to Number One. Almost as much cause for celebration as the wedding itself.

Books, Chocolate, Wine and good friends…

The venue was the Chocolate Museum - what better place could there be?

In the words of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons – Oh, what a night!

All the ingredients were there as we celebrated the launch of Flight to Coorah Creek

There were books – mine and also those by fellow Choc Lit Author Beverley Eikli.

A few quiet moments before the party.

And even before the wine started flowing, the most important ingredient arrived – good friends (old and new – no sorry – not old… umm… long-known???).

Among them, many of my fellow Choc Lit authors.

The museum is spread over two floors – so there were two floors people who love books… talking non-stop… mostly about books.

Where there are readers and writers, conversation never runs short.

Of course – there were those nervous moments as I prepared to read from the book. I had to do it twice – once up stairs and once down… I don’t think it was a disaster. Once of the guests tweeted me on her way home.. saying….  your reading made me want to read the book – AGAIN

Some people had come a long way for the event – which was a lovely compliment. It was a long journey home… but there was no concern about falling asleep…

So – thank you everyone who came along to make the evening so special for me. I will not soon forget the warmth of the atmosphere and all the well wishes..

OK – time now to get into writing book number  7…

Flowers from friends - thanks for coming Natasha and Jared.

  • Many congratulations to you and Beverley – glad it went so well. Most of the time I’m happy to live way out west… but it would have been nice to join you for what looked like a fab evening.

    • Thanks Chris – it was a great evening. You made me realise it’s been a while since I was ‘way out west’ – must try to plan a weekend during the summer. I love your part of the country. J X

  • Sorry I couldn’t be with you on the night, it sounds as though it went splendidly. Loved the book though, nicely written and let me leave reality for a few hours – thank you!

  • Well done, Janet, on putting together such a great blog. It really captured the atmosphere of a sensational night. I had a ball catching up again with so many old, long-known and wonderful friends from my past – some of whom I hadn’t seen since I was 18, believe it or not! – as well as meeting so many fellow Choc Lit fellow authors.

    It was a great night with great conversation, wine and chocolate!

  • It looks wonderful 🙂 xx

  • Good friends, books, wine and chocolate – the ingredients for a perfect evening and you obviously had a great time. Congratulations!

  • It was a lovely venue, and I’m so glad I could be there to celebrate both Janet and Beverley. And this being the Chocolate Museum, I learned a lot about chocolate I didn’t know – always useful 😉

  • It was good to have you there Henriette. I learned things about chocolate too – which may give me a reason for more research in the future… 🙂 J.

  • Huge Congratulations, Janet, to both you & Beverley. I so wish I could have come along. It looks like a fab night was had by all. Great post and lovely pics too Xx

    • Thanks Jan. It was a great night and has certainly given me the impetus to get right to work on the next book. J X
