IN YOUR FACE is successfully launched!

In Your Face Launch

At 3pm on Saturday 17 September, a wild bunch of Canberra speculative fiction lovers (and some ring-ins from interstate) packed out A Bite To Eat in Chifley for the official launch of the confronting, challenging anthology In Your Face. The publisher and several authors took centre stage to talk a bit about the book and their individual stories, and bitey cakes and drinks were enjoyed by all.

In Your Face Launch

A huge thanks to everyone who participated in the launch – it was loads of fun (if a bit noisy in the venue) and a wonderful way to recognise the hard work of everyone involved. Especial gratitude to Cat Sparks for photographing the event, and as always, to the authors who have permitted me to publish their amazing work, to SpecFaction NSW for the initial seed funding, and to all the Pozible supporters who helped bring the book to life, as well as Amanda Rainey for the dramatic cover, and Elizabeth, Matthew and Katharine for proofing. You’re all awesome and the book could not be what it is without you.

It’s been a very busy few weeks in the FableCroft household! In addition to two fabulous awards ceremonies on the weekend, we also launched Kate Forsyth’s beautiful non-fiction collection The Rebirth of Rapunzel: A Mythic Biography of the Maiden in the Tower. The launch was a great success, with over sixty guests in attendance enjoying champagne and chocolate while chatting with Kate. We had a gorgeous giveaway pack, and sold lots of books, and it was just lovely.

Cranky Ladies of History, the launch report

The launch got off to a slightly rocky start, as I was struck down with plague just prior to the arrival of co-editor Tansy Rayner Roberts (flying in from Tasmania) on the Saturday afternoon. Kaaron Warren (and her sidekick) swept in to the rescue, collecting and delivering Tansy to us, and hanging out with the family while I was in quarantine. Despite the shaky beginning, Sunday March 8 dawned fair and fine, the sun shining on International Women’s Day and treating our visitors to Canberra’s best behaviour.

Tansy and I arrived nice and early (with Miss 9 as offsider) to set up at The Front Gallery and Cafe – a big thanks to the venue for a great space and a great price, and friendly and helpful service. Thanks also to my work colleague Alexis who was a huge help throughout the setup and launch, completely unexpectedly but most appreciated. Our special guest Karen Middleton joined us – next time I hope I can actually have a proper conversation with her, but I think others did get to chat more – and the attendees began to trickle in. The room filled up quickly and the poor airconditioner couldn’t quite keep up with the pressure, but the launch proceeded regardless of the warmth. Karen Middleton spoke passionately and thoughtfully about the book and the concept, to the point where I was nearly in tears – it’s so great when people really get what you were aiming to do, and we couldn’t be more grateful for Karen for her time and kindness in officially sending Cranky Ladies of History out into the world.
