We came, we saw, we launched.

The launch of The Curds and Whey Mystery went off well (no one died, the place didn't burn down and no-one mistook me for Hilary Mantel).  A decent crowd turned up and many books were sold and signed.

A huge crowd struggles to stay awake

After some avant-garde experimentation with microphone feedback, I took the opportunity to thank everyone, slagged off the Leinster and Manchester United supporters in the crowd, accused my youngest son of cheating in FIFA 12 (how else can he consistently beat me?) and signed loads of books before retiring to licensed premises to watch Germany/Italy.

O'Mahony's Bookshop put on a great show (wine, snacks and professionalism) and there were loads of pig-shaped sweeties.

All in all, a great evening.  Thanks to everyone who showed up.

And you said he couldn't do joined-up writing!
