It was a truly memorable evening, not least for Storm St Jude, which swept across southern and eastern England that morning and unfortunately kept several of the authors from attending. St Jude - the patron saint of desperate causes - thankfully kept well away from the Masons' Arms in Mayfair however, and the event was a huge success.
A writer's life can often be a virtual and lonely one and it was fabulous to meet and chat with one's fellow stable of authors and indeed the staff of Thames River Press itself.
Thanks also to Mr Darin Jewell, the literary agent, who organised and hosted the evening.
