Welcome to the launch!

Welcome to the launch of my first novel and eBook, This Time Next Year!
Thank you for joining me. Please enjoy a slice of cake
and a glass of champagne - a glass of lemonade or a nice cup of tea are also available if you prefer - 
while I read a few short extracts from This Time Next Year.

If you enjoyed these extracts and you'd like to buy this eBook it's available on Amazon. That's the UK site but it's also available on

If you don't have a Kindle, don't worry! You can download kindle-reading software for your computer or mobile device FREE from Amazon.

If you enjoy  This Time Next Year , please tell your friends! 
And please consider writing a short review on Amazon. 
If you don't enjoy it, I'm sorry!

Thank you for spending time with me and for your support!

Nice cake - do you have some lemonade rather than the champagne?


Hope all is a roaring success and when you are on Graham Norton, the Review Show, BBC Breakfast and Loose Women you remember us little people who were here today... ;-)

Huge congrats and I do hope it is a roaring success.

Liz said...

Oops, sorry, furtheron! and I'm a non-drinker so I should have thought of that! I'll put some out straightaway!
Thank you.

McBöbø said...

Well done Liz for putting it out there and doing what you want!

PS: You don't sound as Welsh as I imagined

PPS: Lovely cake, as ever.

Thank you, McBobo, Jams and Yvette!

Rose said...

Thanks for the delicious cake, Liz, and the tea--it's a little too early for champagne for me. Such a wonderful party--it's my first ever invitation to such an event; I'm so excited! Just popped over and ordered a copy from Amazon; I hope if it eventually goes to print that I can get an autographed copy.

Good luck and may this be just the first of many such launches!

Liz said...

Thank you so much, rose! It will get to 'proper' print one day.

James Higham said...

Liked the excerpt - have to try to get into these kindle things. Don't know how you found the time, Liz.

MaryB said...

OK. Your book has been purchased and duly sent to my Kindle. But hearing your lovely voice reading excerpts nudges me to demand an audiobook version. I want YOU to read it to me, Liz! Love it!

Liz said...

Thank you, James. I don't have a kindle either! But I will one day. And it's taken me 10 years ...

Ah, thanks, Mary. Audiobook? Hm, I'll have to think about that.

Mike Tea said...

Looking good Liz. A year of well-intentioned ineptitude sounds perfectly delicious. I hope the dinner goes well, whoever thought of it first. Oh, nice cake and, as for me, its never too early for champagne - or too late. Scrumptious!

Liz said...

Thanks, Mike!

Suburbia said...

Thanks for saving some cake for me.

Loved the bra bit, sadly so familiar!!

Good luck with it all


Dragonstar said...

Thanks for the cake and champers Liz. I know I'm late - I've been busy reading! I love your book.

Liz said...

Thank you, sub. I think there will be lots of familiar bits in it!

I'm so glad, dragonstar!

CherryPie said...

Congratulations :-)

I will toast the launch with a glass of wine :-)

I have been gone all day. Is there any cake left?

But I have read several chapters. I would have to go get it and check to see how many,and I just finally got sat down.

I will review when I have finished it.
