Preview Party for Wilde About the Girl by Louise Pentland

As a self-proclaimed YouTube addict, I first came to know author Louise Pentland through her wildly popular channel Sprinkleofglitter (2.5m subscribers and counting) where she posts about lifestyle, motherhood, beauty and more in her funny, genuine and super relatable videos. I've binged on them many a night, let me tell you. And if being a successful vlogger wasn't enough to be proud of already, Louise has also written some crackin' women's fiction novels, the latest of which will be published next week!

I'm not entirely sure how I became so lucky, but the kind folk at Louise's publishers Bonnier Zaffre invited me to an exclusive preview party last month for her second novel Wilde About the Girl, which continues the story of Robin Wilde from her debut novel Wilde Like Me but can be read as a stand-alone. It was a very intimate event at Benefit in Carnaby Street with a small group of book lovers, Sprinkleofglitter fans and publishing bods enjoying sparkling drinks and the most exquisitely laid out selection of delicate savoury bites and sweet treats. It was all so pretty that we were hesitant to ruin the beautiful display, though of course once we did dig into the scrumptious delights we couldn't stop... #sorrynotsorry

It wasn't long before the lady of the hour joined us, and it was SUCH a delight having the opportunity to chat to her about her brilliant new book! Louise comes across so lovely on the screen and she's exactly the same in real life (though even funnier, if you can imagine it?!). She was extremely generous with her time and it was great to get a sneak peak behind the writing process. I also had the chance to catch up with some lovely bloggers and Bonnier Zaffre folk – and to top it all off we left the event with goodie bags and a beautiful hardback copy of Wilde About the Girl, which I of course had to get signed. Huge thanks to Louise and team Bonnier Zaffre for a wonderful evening. I'm raising my glass in celebration of the publication of Wilde About the Girl next week, which undoubtedly will be another successful bestseller. Cheers, guys!

Wilde About the Girl will be published by Bonnier Zaffre on 9 August 2018 and you can pre-order your copy now from Foyles or your own preferred retailer.
