Cathy Kelly Launch Party plus Giveaway

Keep reading for a chance to win a signed copy of Between Sisters by Cathy Kelly!

Another day-another fabulous event that I have the privilege to attend! Last night was the launch of the absolutely stunning Between Sisters by Cathy Kelly. I was invited up to the rooftop of Orion and we celebrated in style with these stunning views...

And wine and nibbles too of course!

The whole room was filled with gorgeous books, I think you'll agree Orion has some fabulous authors!

Cathy was interviewed by fellow Orion author Fanny Blake, whose new book House of Dreams is out on the 5th November-so exciting! Cathy talked about her writing process and how she gets the inspiration for the names in her book. At one point she did say that after writing 17 novels, she was starting to run out of names and so fellow book blogger Zarina suggested that she should use her name-you can look out for that soon then! Cathy also talked about how, when she writes, her characters tend to take over and let her story meander along it's own course-that is when she's not being distracted by Pinterest and Buzz Feed of course!

We were treated to these wonderful goody bags by the lovely folks at Orion...

The goody bags contained a copy of Cathy's new book (which i had signed), a copy of Fanny's new book (with I did not manage to get signed-sad!) a copy of The Christmas We Met by Kate Lord Brown, a copy of Woman and Home-I'll look forward to reading that in the bath- and a lovely One Book Lane keyring-we were spoiled!!

It was great to meet Cathy-thanks to Sharon for taking this picture of us-she was so lovely and genuinely a delight to chat to! She was also lovely enough to sign my book!

I happened to have another copy of the book which I also got signed and if you would like to win it for yourself just leave me a comment below or send me a tweet telling me your favourite thing about autumn (you'll notice the lovely autumn leave on the cover of Between Sisters) and I'll announce the winner next week. I'm going to open up this competition to everyone because I want all the lovely readers to have the chance to experience the beauty of this book! Good Luck!

Thanks so much to Orion, Cathy and Fanny for such a lovely evening!


  1. I'm really looking forward to reading this book. Love Cathy's books have just read just between us again. I think the thing I like most about Autumn is the colours of the leaves on the trees changing, I was just speaking about that yesterday seeing all the trees in the garden changing plus I can start wearing my boots again! Sounds like you had a fab evening. Lx

  2. I love the autumn colours, especially on a sunny day, and the crisp sound of the leaves as you walk (or shuffle) through them. Would love to win this book. Sarah

  3. I love the Autumn colours and the darker evenings giving me more reading time.

  4. My favourite thing about Autumn is curling up on the sofa with a book, in a nice warm house, while seeing the pretty leaves on the trees outside my windows!

  5. Autumn is a magical time all the lovely colours, the fruits ripening in the hedgerows, the colours of the leaves, the awesome sunsets and that nip in the air that sends you racing back to the warmth of the armchair and a good book.
