Last Thursday at the Oxo Tower, a load of writers, bloggers, journalists and celebs supped champagne overlooking the River Thames. The occasion? The glamorous Pan Macmillan Women's Fiction Party – re-named by publisher Jeremy Trevathan as "Books Aimed at Women largely written by Women (and one man)."
The whole evening was great fun. The canapés were incredible (yes there were mini Fish and Chip cones and hot dogs smothered in mustard), the people were fabulous and the goodie-bags bursting. The chat was wonderful and there was a real buzz as authors met bloggers and we all squealed over books, writing and gossip. Heels were removed, wine was drunk and toasts were made.
There were some wonderful Pan Mac authors in attendance: notably Our Leader aka the hilarious Kirsty Greenwood, a Novelicious favourites Miranda Dickinson and Lucy Diamond, the celeb in the room Helen Lederer and many, many more. We schmoozed, we laughed and we wobbled home.
Thank you to Pan Macmillan for such an ace night. It was brilliantly run and we had a cracker of a time!
