Well, I can relax now. 🙂 It’s been a busy time preparing for several things this last weekend…on Friday night we did a fund-raising concert at church to try and raise money for the project Kate is doing in Cambodia – she is providing ‘life packs’ for all the prisoners in the prison where she teaches English and music. We had a wonderful evening with a variety of people performing, and raised $1800!! Kate was so thrilled.
Ellie came up for the weekend to perform at the concert and also to be there for my book launch the next day. We spent a relaxed morning setting up the Whangarei Old Library. Fun. I like to try and make the back drop look like the inside of the barn. 🙂 They even had a lamp post there that I could use!
I loved meeting all the people – some even were there from Hamilton!! So neat to meet my little fans (and grown-up ones!) and sign their books.
There were some FANTASTIC entries into the art competition! Oh boy, it was a hard job for Penny to judge them. I hope I can put some up here on my website so you can all see them…but I need to ask the artists first!
All in all a wonderful day! Thank you to all those who came and celebrated the event with me! Now it’s back to the all-important task of writing. 🙂
