Pencil's 2nd post - The Launch

Finally, we are updating the blog and sending out a great big walloping thanks to everyone who came down to The Book Club, Leonard Street for the launch of hotpencil press and There Is No Word For It. What a fantastic night. Serge and I were mightily touched and uplifted by all your support and positive responses to the book. An enormous thanks also to the cast for reading the excerpts, Mike and Chopin for DJ-ing and working on the Monster mix and the flash mob dance, Jean Feline for taking the photos, and Nana and Liat for getting us in the building on the first place. 

At the moment we are currently busy setting up meetings and arranging to take There Is No Word For It out to other venues in the UK and beyond. If anyone is interested in leaving quotes or info on your responses to the publication then please email us at and we'll post responses on the blog. 

The website is up and running with Paypal buttons for ordering including P&P; thanks to Jason Elvis Barker for all his help with this. You can still grab direct sales launch price copies from Serge and I for £10.00. Books are also available from Gays The Word Bookshop web-link. 

Currently we have plans to launch There Is No Word For It in the US in 2012, opening with dates in San Franciso and New York.
