Eve of the big day

Tomorrow is the book launch of the Vale Royal Writers Group first anthology. Very excited and nervous. So much hard word has gone into this work; poems and stories written, edited, corrected, printers sought, proofs read, a beautiful cover designed, and tomorrow we present it to the public! Tonight mince pies are being baked, wine mulled, glasses and plates collected, readings practised and nerves calmed ... The press have been notified, posters designed and displayed, invitations issued and fingers crossed. Only twenty four hours to go. How does this concern G.O.E.S? Well, the Group has nominated us as recipients of any profits! It's so kind of them. We were surprised and delighted and very moved by this wonderful gesture. There are times when the slog of running a small charity seems too much, then something like this happens. People are so kind. I'll let you know how it goes!
