by |May 2, 2011

When My Husband Does the Dishes… by Kerri Sackville
was launched last Thursday night

Cunningly disguised as a wino to throw off the paparazzi, author and journalist Mark Dapin was on hand to officially launch the book…

Then the star of the night, the gorgeous Kerri Sackville, seduced her audience with a rendition of the Olivia Newton-John hit – I Honestly Love You

Maybe I hang around here
A little more than I should
We both know I got somewhere else to go
But I got something to tell you
That I never thought I would
But I believe you really ought to know

I love you
I honestly love you

After such a moving performance there wasn’t a dry eye in the house

Mark Lewis from Random House was on hand to steady his new star…

Author Kylie Ladd flew up from Melbourne for the event and was enjoying herself until she happened to look over her shoulder to see her agent in an embrace with another author…

Literary Agent Pippa Masson, who discovered Kerri on Twitter, proves once again that she likes to have a very close relationship with all of her clients…

And lastly… For those who doubt that I was there at all… let’s play Where’s the Wally…

    Kerri Sackville has the most gorgeous smile in the world! Which is fitting really, as she is the most gorgeous person in the world.

    (Am not sure about that picture of me. Can not decide if I look as if I am studying the event for posterity and to include in a future novel, or as if I have absolutely no mates at all. Sob.)
