Today is the day: ‘Waiting For Callback’ is at long last hitting bookstores all around the country, allowing readers to finally meet (and cringe with) Elektra, our 15-year-old leading lady.
Of course, what’s a book birthday without a party? MaximumPop! Books were honoured to be attendance last night at Perdita and Honor’s ‘Waiting For Callback’ launch party.
Held in the swanky Daunt Books in Marylebone High Street (a suitably legendary location), the room was packed with book-lovers, bloggers and publicists alike – not mention plenty of friends and family. In fact, we couldn’t help but find the support the authors received utterly adorable – particularly when Honor’s friends rushed at her, squealing excitedly and hugging her. And this energy – excited, giddy, young – was the perfect way to conduct the launch party of such a fun, fabulous book.
A real highlight of the evening were the speeches. The mother/daughter duo of Perdita and Honor took to the balcony to address the room, and couldn’t have been more sweet.
Perdita said that she wouldn’t say how delighted she was to write with Honor, as she knew Honor would “totally cringe”. “I am not going to use the ‘proud’ word,” she added.
Also, it would be totally criminal not to mention the snacks. All of them were teeny and adorable, such as pink macaroons, bite-size crackers with cheese, and even some veggies wrapped in flowers. We were also very fond of the champagne refills.
All in all, this utterly lovely launch party welcomed in the beginning of what we hope will be a long and happy writing career between these two lovely ladies.
