In spite of the tube strike, the launch was attended by over 50 people and over 40 books were sold. Special thanks go to Simon Avery, senior lecturer at the University of Westminster, for securing the venue (at much hassle to himself, unfortunately).

    Congrats, how do I get it. Great first review from Sophie Mayer.

  3. Congratulations Carrie! I'm really sorry I couldn't make it but heard your launch went well. You looked fab! Loving The Tethers, glad I pre-ordered - only two left in stock!
    Hopefully see you soon - oh yeah, embarrassing drink of Bicardi and lemonade on me!
