Thanks must go to HarperVoyager for my invitation to this great event, and to the wonderful staff at Galaxy Bookshop for hosting. It was a very fun evening, and Mitchell Hogan was incredibly lovely to his fan base, new and old! Crucible of Souls is well and truly launched, and is now available to a whole new host of fantasy lovers.
We were treated to a reading – I do love hearing authors read from their stories, especially so that I know how to pronounce character names! Hogan finished on a cliffhanger – a very clever ploy to get us all intrigued! His gorgeous little girl provided excellent commentary with a loud ‘Uh-Oh’ – she obviously knew what was coming!
I had the opportunity to take lots of photos, and we all participated in the Twitter frenzy, using the hashtag #MitchatGalaxy. I also got to mingle with other book bloggers, which was lots of fun – not something I get the chance to do very often!
All in all, it was a fantastic night and I hope I get the opportunity to attend more events like it in the future! With this and meeting Kate Forsyth earlier this month, I am definitely living up to my resolution to be present at more bookish happenings!
