Launch Day, Baby!

On Saturday, Team Remnant was in full swing launching the long-awaited book. The hype had been building for a while with three book trailers released in the lead up to the day. I’d launched a couple of books before. I’d be all good with this…right?

Wrong! So nervous! I sat in the car doing deep breathing exercises for ages in order to calm myself down. Writing is a solitary pursuit. Launching and selling the book? Not so much.

Turns out my nightmares of all the books being wrong in some way or another, or of no one turning up to the launch, didn’t come true. Saturday was awesome. We even had to put more chairs out! We were able to Skype in people from around Australia, and the internet even worked. Yay! Well it kinda worked. So kinda yay.

The Remnant has now officially been launched. We are doing special prices for youth groups and churches so they can raise money for their chosen causes. Drop me an email if you are interested (via the contact form). The book is only days old and is already getting great reviews. Can’t wait for you to meet The Remnant.

If you want to see the book trailers, which you really should because they are AWESOME, here’s the location of the YouTubeChannel! (Click here to see the good stuff)

So without further ado…here are some photos from the day.

Much love
