Author Adele the toast of the town and she launches her debut novel
ARKLOW author Adele O’Neill was the toast of the town on Friday evening as her debut novel was officially launched.
Arklow Golf Club played host to the event which welcomed over 130 guests.
The novel, Brothers and Sisters is the first of Adele’s works to hit the shelves since she secured a three-book deal last year.
Master of Ceremonies was Ken Moroney, one of Adele’s former teachers from St Mary’s College and best selling author Carmel Harrington was welcomed to perform the launch.
A delighted Adele said that she was very happy with how the launch went, as well as the reception to her book.
‘ The night was filled with friends and family old and new where I spoke a little on the process of writing Brothers and Sisters and finished by reading a passage from the first scene of Brothers and Sisters. Sales have been soaring and the feedback has been amazing,’ she said.
While Adele is enjoying having her book finally in print, the work is only starting as she is in the midst of promotional interviews ahead of a two week blog tour.
‘Also this week I start into the edits of book two which is another emotive tale that follows the lives of two women on both sides of the Atlantic, one in San Francisco and one in Dublin. Both have been given impossible choices with the potential to have devastating outcomes so I’m really excited to see if people love book two as much as they have loved Brothers and Sisters,’ she said.
