It has been a few months now since I last went to a book launch. Myself and my husband were kindly invited by Urbane Publications to the launch of Paul Harrison’s new non-fiction book, ‘Mind Games: Inside the Serial Killer Phenomenon’ which was published on the 4th October 2018. We joined in the celebrations yesterday evening at The Soho Collective in London. The room the event was held in was lovely and cosy with nice views and we instantly felt at home, that is until we saw the imprint of a dead body. Obviously a murder had not long taken place.
There was much chatter and laughter as more and more people arrived. We were all offered drinks and there were nibbles too. Matthew Smith, the Publishing Director of Urbane Publications introduced Paul Harrison who then talked about his book and told us all a true story. People then queued up to buy copies of ‘Mind Games’ and to get them signed.
There were some very interesting people at the launch and I was absolutely thrilled to meet actor and director, Sven W. Pehla who travelled from Germany to help Paul celebrate his new book, dressed as Poirot. Sven even let me have a picture taken with him.
It was also nice seeing the lovely Anne Coates who is a talented Urbane author again.
We thought this to be a brilliant night out. It left me on a high and I am still really happy. Urbane Publications are organising more and more book launches these days and it really is great to see their books out there. Events like these are good for book bloggers so if you ever get the chance to go to one of these launches you really should consider going.
I am really looking forward to reading ‘Mind Games’ although I have been told it is a bit gruesome. Perhaps I won’t read it in bed at night.
After the event my husband ate a burger. I wonder what could have been in it……
