Back at the beginning of May, I interviewed emerging author Adam Stiles. Last week, Adam launched his new book, The Uniques at St Edmund’s College in Ipswich. Here’s what Adam had to say about the event:
I started off by gathering the crowd around me (it was a very informal setup) and explaining to them how the book came to be, where the ideas came from, what it took to become published. I explained that it is a series, and took them through the basic premise of Act I.
My mate Odin (the first person to read the manuscript) gave a short, impromptu speech, and then I did a full reading of the prologue.
Afterwards, I took a couple of questions and then we had afternoon tea while I went around chatting to the guests, which included the school principal, several teachers, and handful of students who waited around after school, and of course my friends/family.
I finished by setting up a table to sell and sign copies. Nearly everyone who was there now has one. Overall it was an excellent launch!
