Oh, what a night...

 Yesterday we launched Worlds Next Door at the local public library. Simon Haynes came down and hosted for me, and I was lucky enough to have a couple of local authors come along too. There was a great turn out (kicking butt on that four per launch that Simon talked about!) and lots of food and drinks and kids and friends and fun! 

Things ran *fairly* smoothly (I forgot to take my famous zucchini muffins that everyone loves that I'd spent hours baking on Wednesday; and I really MUST write a running order for next time!) but wouldn't have if it weren't for the help of so many fantastic friends. Let's see who I manage to forget!

* Simon was fantastic, and it was great to see him too :)
girliejones  was awesome doing the sales - she even sold books to people who should have had freebies!
kaelajael  who ROCKED in the cupcakes and cakes! Omigosh, SO good!
kaelajael 's kiddies, who helped set up, wrangled (and thoroughly entertained) smaller kids, and did some videoing.
* Leith, for helping set up, and picking stuff up from work for me (and my school, for letting me borrow said things). And for his reading.
* Jen Banyard, for reading so beautifully!
* My husband, who supports.
* My kids, for being great!
* Sandy, Helen, battblush  and Sam, for set up, baking, loaning, kid wrangling and cleanup duties!
* Joycey, for brilliant photos and super quick sending some, and Jen & Sam, for more photos!
* Rockingham Community Library (particularly Deb) for letting me have the launch there and being so helpful.
* Everyone who came and said nice things!

I had a great time and am very grateful to everyone who helped make it happen (and that includes the authors and artists in the book!). Thanks everyone!
