Rogue Book Launch

Beer n Book - Good Combo!

I really have been soaking up the artist's life these school holidays. Just over a week ago I attended the book launch for Nicole Murphy's newest novel in her series: Rogue Gadda. How could I resist the temptation - a book launch held in a pub!

And not just any pub, a traditional Irish pub. I was in Guinness heaven (okay, I only had one, otherwise I get a bit handsy). Nicole was a wonderful host and dutifully signed many copies of her new novel, she also delivered a very entertaining speech and shared a sample of her new book with us (but not the saucy scene, we'll have to discover that for ourselves).

I first came across Nicole's writing after attending a few of her writers workshops (you can read about my experience at her saucy scenes workshop here), the most recent one being on writing colourful characters (Zombie Dog is kind of green - does that count?), I'll post about that workshop soon.

This launch was for Rogue Gadda:

But if you want to start with the first two books for this sexy paranormal story, try:
 

I also met a couple of writers who were really nice, one gave me the inside scoop on some great gaming novels for boys (and gamer girls!) - check out: The Black Library for something a bit edgy.
