The HarperCollins Summer Party 2016

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the HarperCollins Summer Party at the gorgeous V&A Museum, in London.

It was an amazing event and whilst being nervous, I am so glad I went. I got to chat to other authors, agents, and the wider team at HC, as well as catch up with the editors from the Carina imprint.

Authors L-R: Phaedra Patrick, me, BA Paris and AL Bird.

Beforehand, the HQ team (HQ is the newly formed imprint that merged previous Harlequin imprints such as MIRA etc) held pre-party drinks at the Rembrandt Hotel, opposite the V&A. We got the chance to raise a glass to the new imprint before heading over to the huge party across the road.

To be honest, everything was a blur. The venue was packed, the alcohol was flowing and the canapés were to die for (especially the desserts!). I got to meet some fantastic authors, and the teams from across the whole of HarperCollins. Many I have only ‘spoken’ to via social media, so it was lovely to meet these people properly.

I saw authors I have long admired and found ‘new voices’ I have yet to read, but whose books I will be adding to my (ever-growing!) to-be-read pile.

It was a fantastic evening and experience that I hope I might be lucky enough to repeat.
