Yesterday I was lucky enough to attend Pam Cook's book launch of her just released novel Black Wattle Lake. Te launch was held at the NSW Writer's Centre which funnily enough is where I first met Pam.
Pam and I have been in the same writing group for what I'm assured is eight years. That seems impossible to me but I am reliable sources confrm that is the case.
So for eight years I've been with Pam on her journey to publication so I was very, very happy to help her celebrate yesterday.
Theer were lots of other wonderful people at the launch who I also happen to like so it was a wonderful day. Lots of members of our writing group were there and it was wonderful to catch up with them. It was also lovely to see the delightful Vanessa Radnidge Pam's publisher at Hachette Livre who I had the pleasure of meeting back in 2008 when I did the QWC/Manuscript Development course.
Below are some snapshots from the day...I took lots of photos and I know manymany more will be over on Pam's site.
