Please Don’t Cry has officially blasted off!
With the support of kind friends and family, the official launch of this beautiful little book was in a gorgeous gift shop called Kookie Corner in Smithfield Shopping Centre, Cairns.
The children who attended sat and listened attentively while the author read (or rather ‘sung’ to the tune of the lullaby Hush Little Baby!) the book with the help of her daughters, who were the inspiration behind the book. They all also enjoyed the rainbow cupcakes!
My tips for a great book launch:
- Find the right venue with supportive and helpful staff, easy access for visitors, and enough space.
- Have something extra to entice people to come and join in such face painting, colouring in pages or cupcakes.
- Invite everyone! Social media is great for this.
- Keep speeches at a good length.
Relax and believe in your book. Take a deep breath and enjoy the moment, it is a special occasion.
