Little Dog and the Christmas Wish Paperback Launch – 19 November, 2016
The paperback launch of Little Dog and the Christmas Wish was held last Saturday in the beautiful Block Arcade in Collins Street Melbourne, just as we did in October 2014 for the launch of the hardback.
It is such a stunning place for a book launch, full of elegance and Christmas sparkle. The Hopetoun Tearooms provided the most wonderful Little Dog cake and delicious scones and little dog Harry and Laraine from Collins Booksellers Croydon were the booksellers. Harry’s behaviour was exemplary, accepting tummy rubs and cuddles from all who came to buy a book and share a piece of cake.
In 2008 I began writing this story at a table in The Hopetoun Tea Rooms while waiting for a friend. It took a while to get this book right but after the launch on October 25th, 2014, a few months later it was chosen as the Myer Windows theme for Christmas 2015 and appeared in both the Myer Melbourne and Myer Brisbane windows.
This Christmas, Little Dog and the Christmas Wish will be on display in Myer Ballarat and I’ll be signing books there, along with little dog Harry, from 12-2.00 p.m. on Saturday 3rd December. If you live in or close to Ballarat, be sure to come and say hello and meet Harry. Thank to all those who took photos.
