Early January I got a lovely but unexpected email asking if I would like to attend the book launch and meet the awesome author herself. Of course I said a big YES PLEASE!!!
Next we got the news of where the event was being held - It was only at a swanky hotel in LONDON!!! That made me even more thrilled to be attending!!

We had to go in and speak to the main desk who showed us round to the library room, what an apt location for a book event.
Once inside I was taken a back by the gorgeousness of the room. There were copies of the books on the shelves. There was a table of cup cakes that had the signature butterflies on the top, beautiful food was being laid out on the tables and drinks lined the tables at the back of the room. We even had our own waiter serving us drinks!!!!
Each of us were given the most awesome name tags EVER!! Seriously it is just about the coolest item I have been given in a looooong time!!!
We were each introduced to Susanne, who is just about the cutest lady ever!! She is so super friendly and we discussed our twitter chat of the Twilight casts hair - its not very good is it??!
All of us sat around coffee tables and just generally chatted about books - there was a lot of book geeking going on.
After the food the Usborne team and Susanne did a little speech, which was lovely. It was so nice to see and hear the bond that is built between author and publisher during their work together. Getting to see just a glimpse of that is so special.

The event was now nearing to a close, but we had time to have a big group picture - Its majorly cute I have to say!!!
One last little treat we were each given one of the lovely cupcakes - this received a major Oooooh from all of us. But me being the plonker I am had an accident before I even left the room. Whilst putting on my coat somehow my cupcake went crashing on the floor and splattered face down - Major Face palm moment for me there. There were a few cupcakes left and they kindly gave me a replacement - I am so sorry for my clumsiness though!!!
Once again Thanks to Susanne for her major kindness and to the lovely guys at Usborne for inviting me to such a wonderful event!!
