Urbane Party! June 2015.

Party Time

The writing world: 'Urbane' party. 
What an amazing evening, filled with wonderful people and fabulous conversations.

Through the main entrance and off to find the elusive 'Black Door' of the speakeasy 'Barts'. 
Below - Words from the website…
Barts is a late-night, cocktail bar set in the 1920s prohibition era, run by Chicago gangsters who have set up in London. Uncle Barts’ gangsters are operating their bootlegging activities from this hidden bar within one of the many apartments located on Sloane Avenue. In order to avoid detection from the cops, this hidden speakeasy has been dressed up as the private apartment of the ever elusive proprietor ‘Barts’ – ‘Uncle Barts’ to those that know him best.

 On finding the door and gingerly entering, cartoon strip walls and a pair of scrutinizing eyes greeted me. I smiled, and like magic, another door opened...I was in! 

 Inside, I was greeted with Rosé - Perfect! :o) 
My nerves quickly disappeared on seeing a room filled with friendly, smiling faces.

 Cocktails anyone?

This was my first 'author' experience away from the cyber world, excluding of course, the initial signing/meetings with Matthew. I'll admit, I felt a little apprehensive in the days leading up to the event, but honestly, everyone was so amazing that those nerves completely vanished . What a great bunch of people 'The Urbane Family' are. That's the collective term we use for Matthew's ingenious publication that connects us all, a team of friendly people that genuinely care and support each other. Urbane has an extremely promising future and displays collaboration at it's finest! I feel humble to be a part of this magical process and happy that I listened to my heart, which led me here. :o)

Please, feel free to drop Matthew a line if you have a manuscript/book idea that you've been itching to discuss. He's a great guy and doesn't bite, honest :o)
