As inspiration is not blessing me with its presence today the following is mostly true. Except the name and the genre.
Mindy’s Evening, by Emma Baird
Mindy loved attending book launches.
They made her feel cultured – better than spending an evening watching TV, surely? They were also only an hour long usually. Perfect for her short attention span.
Tonight’s event was one she was particularly looking forward to. The book hadn’t attracted her attention as much as the author had. A former high-class escort whose previous memoir had enjoyed millions of sales before being made into a film. Now, the one-time escort had turned her attention to fiction.
Romantic comedy, no less.
Mindy usually kept quiet at book launches. Would she ask questions this time?
