It’s been a very busy and exciting week in the Tullett household and for a whole host of reasons.
Firstly, we had the official release of Little White Lies and Butterflies and to celebrate I hosted a virtual launch party.
Having never done one of these before I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it actually turned out to be great fun. Lots of people signed in, bringing with them their virtual bottles of champagne, sharing their favourite holiday destinations with the rest of us, along with photos of any extreme activities they’ve taken part in. Some shared what piece of music or song gives them butterflies in the tummy and even what little white lies they may have told.
The amount of support shown was heart-warming and for anyone about to release a book themselves, I’d definitely recommend giving a launch party like this a go.
Next on the ‘busy yet exciting’ front came our move to France.
And this being something I’ve dreamed about for years, I can’t believe I’m finally here.
We did actually bring most of our belongings out a couple of weeks ago, but could only stay a few days because of Little White Lies Official Launch – this one physical rather than virtual. But on Saturday we jumped into the car and came out for good. Well, poor Robert still has to work in the UK, but it’s still a new chapter for the both of us.
Now we just have to get to grips with the culture and the language, although I do have a trusty phrase book to hand just to get me going.
Then last but certainly not least, I found out that Little White Lies and Butterflies has been long listed for The Guardian’s Not The Booker Prize, which is fabulous for a new author like myself. So if you haven’t already voted here’s the link where you’ll find info on all the great books vying for your vote.
Of course, I’d like you to actually vote for mine. So if you’ve read Little White Lies and Butterflies and are happy to give it a minimum 100 word review on a site like Amazon or Goodreads etc, then please head on over and follow The Guardian’s instructions as to how you should proceed. And as always, your support is much appreciated.
Keep everything crossed, Guys, and au revoir for now x
