On Friday May 15, the launch of Quick Pivot was celebrated with a party at Rí Rá, an Irish pub on the Portland waterfront. We had a rollicking time sending my debut novel down the ways.
Many family members were in attendance, as were writer friends, lawyer friends, island friends, mainland friends and a few people who fit multiple categories. It was gratifying (and fun!) to hear from those who already have downloaded and read Quick Pivot.
Over the course of the evening a considerable amount of beer was consumed, and everyone seemed to have a heck of a convivial time.
Despite the challenging lighting conditions inside the pub, here are a few photos of some of those who’ve been stalwart and generous supporters of me and my work.
Thank you to all who joined the party and to everyone who has been in touch in the past week or so with enthusiastic and kind messages about Quick Pivot.
