Wednesday night was the final launch of Nude. It took place in Dublin in the NGG gallery, with a backdrop of beautiful art from the Three Rock Art Group called 'Naked Ambition'. Serendipitous, or what?
Thanks so much to all those who turned up. Major thanks to Barbara Smith who gave a wonderful, blush-inducing speech - the book is well and truly launched now. Go raibh maith agaibh, one and all!!

Úna - thanks for coming - you are such a great supporter. You weren't in any of my pics - maybe you'll be in Karen's ones which she has posted to me on a CD.

Looks like a lovely night! I kinda wish you'd named the thread 'Nude pics' ... you'd have got a spike in hits for sure!

Angela France said...

Congratulations - I'm happy for you that it went well.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Angela, thanks a million. I now hope to rest a bit, write a bit, and enjoy the build up to Xmas with the kids. I hope life is good with you. N x

Cheers Máire - I hope you like it!

Eimear - you wouldn't believe some of the search strings that get people here since I started to promote Nude! 'Nude Norwegian women' is one v popular example!!

Rachel Fenton said...

Weeeheee! Well done you! Looks wonderful. The picture of the men lined up under the nudes made me smile - "full monty" the sequel?

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Rachel - I just love that pic too, it's hilarious!
