News room: One Big Book Launch 2015 - as it happened

One Big Book Launch 2015 - as it happened by Sarah Juckes

Ten eclectic books by ten emerging authors launched on June 3rd at what was deemed to be the most exciting event of the literary year – One Big Book Launch 2015. And oh my, was it big! As an innovative event born and bred right here at CompletelyNovel, we’re so pleased to be able to declare One Big Book Launch 2015 an official success.

For those of you who couldn’t make it along, or who want to relive the evening, here’s a blow-by-blow in tweets and pictures. Congratulations to all the authors involved!


6pm – Doors open

The Free Word Centre is primed and ready to go with author stands, stage, music and slide show – and the doors are opened to the first guests, eager to discover a new read (and make use of the free drinks table!)


6.30pm – first round of author speakers

CompletelyNovel’s Sarah Juckes kicks off the first of two slots in the evening where authors read from their books. Guests are packed in, mics are turned up with the lights, and everyone falls quiet – waiting to hear from the first of the ten authors


Due to a family emergency, Steve Tasane can’t join the event in person, but his agent, James Catchpole, does a wonderful job of standing in for him and introducing a specially-made video screened behind the stage, playing Steve’s reading of Nobody Saw No One.


Next up is wonderful CompletelyNovel author – Daphne Kapsali – who gives a very inspiring account of the writing of 100 Days of Solitude.


Andrew Symeou then introduces Extradited and the startling true events that inspired the book.


…Whilst CompletelyNovel co-founder Anna Lewis prepares Andrew’s party-popper finale in the wings (and CN’s Sarah Juckes dives for cover).


Janet Denny’s reading from The Man on the Mantlepiece is beautiful and immediately has us all hooked.


And Nicola Mortimer closes the first half with her beautifully-illustrated children’s picture book, Adventures to have…



7pm – drinks, book-buying and networking aplenty!






7.30pm – The second round of author speakers


Readers eagerly await to hear from the following five authors.


After an introduction by BookMachine’s Laura Summers urging the audience to remember the time and effort that has gone into every book showcased this evening, Diana Morgan-Hill is welcomed to the stage to read from her inspirational book, Love & Justice.


Followed by CompletelyNovel superstar, Tom Evans, who sprinkles a bit of magic on the evening with New Magic for a New Era.


Eve Makis is up next, who gives a very powerful account of the events that inspired her book, The Spice Box Letters.


CompletelyNovel’s own Amanda Epe then gives a brilliant speech, fusing performance poetry with an entertaining reading from A Fly Girl.


And rounding off the author speeches is the brilliant Wildcard winner, Andrew Lowe, with his ‘headline’ book, The Ghost.



So – what did everyone think?








So, all in all? A pretty fantastic evening. And the wonderful thing is that this is just the start for these authors and books. Hopefully this inspires you to collaborate with other authors to organise your own literary event.
