Wedding party


The book launch of my new novel in Eupen was more pleasant than I expected.
The weather helped, the speeches were meaningful, which is rare at book parties and the speech of the mayor of Eupen contained some interesting details.
My publisher was afraid that there would not be enough chicken breast for all the visitors, but there was plenty.
The whole event felt a little bit like a wedding.
One day I hope to organize a book launch in Paraguay.
If the bride and bridegroom can ask their guests to travel thousands of miles for their wedding party an author is entitled to do the same for his new novel.
