‘Hurry Up and Wait’ by Isabel Ashdown: Book Launch Party Photos

This Thursday we celebrated the official release of Hurry Up and Wait with a book launch party hosted by our friends at Waterstone’s in Chichester.  It was a wonderful event, at which I was joined by my publishers Myriad Editions, my agent, Adrian Weston along with a great crowd of friends, family and readers.  Thanks to everyone who made the evening a great success!
