sara rocks, even without an h

Congratulations, Sara Grant, on the launch of your novel, DARK PARTIES. Exciting!




Sara Grant, Sara O'Connor and I occasionally meet up as posse of American Sarahs. (We even went to a Sarah Party together!) So it was super exciting to see Sara's first novel come out at last. Sara's been very active in the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators, which have been a huge help to us in learning about and networking in the industry. So SCBWI was out in force, it was great to see everyone, and hear about so many of them who are having books published. Here's Sara on the left (@AuthorSaraGrant on Twitter), with YA book blogger Sister Spooky (@sisterspooky).



More launch pics! From left: writer, sometimes artist, amazing blogger and unofficial photographer Candy Gourlay; fab writer Christina Vinall; marvellous book person, writer and reviewer Liz de Jager; Foyles organiser, art, fashion and design dude Neil Jackson; Writer, illustrator and puppeteer Sue Eves; lovely writer and editor Sara O'Connor, some chick with pointy specs, loads-of-fun Orion publicist Nina Douglas. Find out more about DARK PARTIES on Sara's website!

I've been to quite a few book launches lately and eaten a bit too well. I'll let Twitter do the talking here, after I tweeted a picture of the lovely, sparkly cupcakes.

great to see you in the dark, Sarah and Sara and the other Sara! How splendidly darkly we were dressed for the pics, pastries and the party. Well done for sharing the night - Lucky you've had so much practise :O)
