An Amazing Day
There has been a lot of talk over the problems that went on at The British Book Affair last weekend, and while they were HUGE issues - lack of food and drink for authors and VIP ticket holders, awful evening entertainment, massive wait lines... seriously, the problems just go on and on, there was also a lot of positives. And if nothing else, the weekend has proven to me what a strong community of Indie authors I'm involved with. These women really do go above and beyond for their readers, and I respect and admire each and every one of them.
The Saturday of the signing started out early, and I was of course nervous as anything, but I shouldn't have worried, because all the amazing readers, other authors, and bloggers made the day incredible. By the end of the very long day, apart from feeling like I was going to faint from hunger and thirst, my arm was aching from the amount of books I signed and I couldn't stop smiling. I got to meet a member of my street team, some amazing bloggers which I speak to on a weekly basis and some truly awesome authors, that I know I'll be friends with for a long time to come.
My husband and I jumped in a cab after the signing and went back to our hotel, where I promptly collapsed on the bed with exhaustion. It wasn't long before we were back in a cab heading to the after party, which yes, sucked so badly, but regardless, I had an amazing time next door in the pub, where in true Classy Claire style, I drank pints of bitter all evening. #keepingitclassy
I had a hilarious evening drinking with A Meredith Walters, Ker Dukey, LH Cosway, our husbands and two wonderful readers.
I was sad to see the end of the weekend, but regardless of the problems, it was an amazing experience, and one I won't forget in a hurry. For those that didn't make it to London to see me, I hope that you'll come to the Birmingham signing in July. (link at the bottom)
Again, I'm sorry if your experience was less than a stellar one, but know that it was beyond any of the authors control, and we are working behind the scenes to set things right with you.
