Loose Launch (Or How to Throw a Book Party in Bali)
Loose Wire, the book, was launched last night at the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival in Bali. It was great to have such a large turnout and gratifying to sell out all copies! More have been shipped in for today’s session of the festival, and can be found at the Java Books stall at Indus. What particularly delighted me was the varied crowd — everyone from geeks to grandmothers! Thanks to everyone for coming and making it a fun evening. I realised that launching a book was really the first time I got to meet readers face to face and hear some of their problems. Mostly, most but not exclusively, about technology.
For those who aren’t in Bali, copies of the book can be bought from Equinox, my publisher. For anyone who happens to be in Jakarta, there’ll be a special launch this coming Saturday, to which you’re all welcome. More launches in Asia and beyond in the months ahead.
