Celtic Lightning: what happens at the Toronto launch . . . .
Our Hero and Patrick Crean. A writer and his editor. With HarperCollins Canada, we launched Celtic Lightning last night at Ben McNally Books in Toronto. Photographer Peter Rehak took the above shot. We signed a few books (right photo: Sheena Fraser McGoogan). And (below) Havard Gould made me do it . . . ? Author and ex-publisher Douglas Gibson spoke on behalf of The Canadian National Trust for Scotland Foundation, which brought in a superb piper (Michael MacDonald) and also the Highlander Brew Company . . . and the rest is cloaked in discreet silence. What happens at the launch stays at the launch.
