Au­thor Adele the toast of the town and she launches her de­but novel

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
