The champagne flowed and dazzlingly white smiles were flashed on Tuesday night as Transworld celebrated the publication of Terry Ronald’s debut novel Becoming Nancy with a launch event at London’s Westbury Hotel. Terry has worked across the music world and this was evident from the amount of media movers and shakers that were in attendance. There was eye candy for everyone with the delectable Dannii Minogue and the dashingly handsome Dermot O’Leary both there to raise a glass to Terry’s delightful book.
The beautiful weather meant that the secluded terrace was well patronised, and this was where publishing director Doug Young fulfilled his life’s dream and had his photo taken with Dermot! Inside, the room was swathed in copies of Becoming Nancy with its mesmerising cover designed by our very own Claire Ward; as well as delicious ‘Fondant Nancys’ – bite size cupcakes iced individually by hand by Terry’s husband, Mark Hammerton. In a wonderfully camp display that directly echoes a theme of the book, television screens played Debbie Harry videos all night, and the background music was an assortment of 70’s and 80’s pop.
The evening was a fabulous success and was most definitely the launch that Becoming Nancy deserved. Terry, along with editor Sarah Emsley, was a perfect host at this delightful soiree which was well attended by press from across the board, evidenced by the phenomenal amount of publicity coverage that was generated from the event.
