Book Launch - WOW!

Hello Friends,

It's been the most wonderful afternoon. Although it was very hot, more than a hundred people came along to celebrate the launch of my third adventure, Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead. I was so excited to meet lots of new friends and see many girls I know well. The afternoon tea was delicious. My best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey was very busy signing lots of books so she didn't get to eat her chocolate brownie or the bruschetta - but I enjoyed it all.

Thank you for coming.

Lots of love,
Alice-Miranda xx

Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead Afternoon Tea Launch


Hello Friends,


I am so excited to see Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead out there in the shops this past week. Jacqueline Harvey is having a lovely launch at the Reel on Redleaf Cafe in Wahroonga on Sunday 20 February at 3.00pm. There's a scrumptious menu and I think the bookings are filling very quickly with only about 20 spots left. If you'd like to come along you need to contact the Novella Bookshop in Wahroonga. There's an invitation here. Can't wait to see all my friends!


Love,

Alice-Miranda xx
