Book launch fizzes along

Personal signing session kicks off Rosie’s Christmas gift book sales


With a title like Wine Not? there was plenty grape juice of the fizzy variety available as family and friends from Rosie Made A Thing enjoyed a special launch party for the book, which has just been published by HarperCollins.

Held at founder and designer Rosie Harrison’s local stockist Kibworth Books, in Kibworth Beauchamp, she told PG Buzz: “We had a fab little launch party for family and friends with posh nibbles, fizz and highbrow literary chats. Then Debbie at Kibworth Books also hosted a little book signing event.”

The Wine Not? A Book Of Grown-Up Decisions gift tome is a whopping collection of Rosie’s funnies, based on the everyday lives of ordinary people, and there were lots of copies on display on the publisher’s stand at Top Drawer last week, along with a special selfie frame that also featured at the launch event. The books were also on display on Bookspeed’s stand at the show, as HarperCollins is also supplying it via distributors, including Gardners and wholesalers.

The idea came about following customers’ requests, and Rosie added: “When the lovely people at HarperCollins called, it seemed like a good time to go for it – basically, it’s more of our usual nonsense but now it’s published by HarperCollins we feel properly grown up!

“We had a lot of fun putting the book together, going back to my very first cards and trying to organise the silliness into coherent chapters. We’re really proud of our little gift book, it’s packed full of funnies and is just in time for Christmas gifting!”
