A big day ahead as we are invading Belfast city centre to take some publicity shots for the book which is being released later this summer. My book is being released! This summer!! I’m nervous and excited and everything in between. Our friends son, a talented photographer and film maker, is co-ordinating the shoot, while his girlfriend will be playing the role of Meredith. I’ll be loitering in the background, trying to look innocuous.
While the book is called ‘The Kirkwood Scott Chronicles: Skelly’s Square,’ Meredith Starc is undoubtedly the beating heart of the book. I loved writing her. Her vulnerability is juxtaposed by an inner strength and loyalty for her friends that drives the story forward at key moments. Without her, the book wouldn’t be the same. I love Meredith and I hope you love her just as much when you read her story.
I’ll be posting some photos from the shoot later this evening so stay tuned for that. Rumour has it, there might also be some author shots of yours truly failing spectacularly at looking mean and moody in a Belfast alleyway. Promise you won’t laugh….too much. I hate getting my photo taken and will no doubt be horrified by the product. But, needs must, and all that. Such are the joys of being a fledgling author.
Are you looking forward to meeting Meredith Starc?
Will you promise not to laugh at the author shots?
