The Crudrat Wrap party was a great success! We had so much food the table was quite groaning.
|And this was just the start!|
The weather cooperated resulting in a lovely turn out, there was standing room only (literally, there were no chairs). I talked all about how the book got started and my inspiration, and Dan talked about how he got the audio books and Kickstarter going.

Then we called up the voice talent to stand with us, and people asked questions about the project and my books. The voice talent complained about my tongue twisters in the book and short stories. I talked about my love of language and silly names.
It was lots of fun. Dan recorded the whole thing and if the sound quality is OK he will include some of it on the blooper reels.
One young lady (friends with an Australian backer) took a picture of the voice talent all standing together, I’d love a copy if I could get it?
Also Dan just released this:
