The official book launch of "The Election" yesterday at the Gold Coast Writer's Association, Burleigh Heads was an outstanding success. My speech was well received and there was a lot of interest in the book. Many people commented on how wonderful the story was, the president commented that when I read excerpts from the first chapter it raised goose bumps (!) and quite a few said what a great cover it had. More importantly six copies were sold then and there and a lot of members and guests took note of the website address so more sales may develop from that one event alone.
