Helen was keen to mingle with bloggers, journalists and the like and was as hilarious and warm as you'd imagine from her comedienne persona. Her book Losing It is an example of her new made-up genre Mid-Lit – "always make up your own genre everyone else will follow" – and looks to be a great, energetic read if the first few chapters are anything to go by.
Helen read from the novel, made a speech, schmoozed the room and ensured we all had enough food and wine. It was a lovely afternoon and we were thrilled to see other bloggers Kim and Rea, rub shoulders with women's fiction authors such as Rebecca Chance and eat ALL the lemon meringues. All of them.
Thank you so much Helen for the invite and lots of luck with the book!Losing It by Helen Lederer is out on February 12.
