The Book Launch Awful Regulars

The 7 awful characters that haunt book launches and talks.


If you attend lots of book launches you will no doubt bump into some characters that will relentlessly irritate you. At least one of the seven characters listed below are likely to pop up at a literature event.

There are of course many more I could include, but here I have chosen to focus on the ones that irritate me the most. Like the people who attend book launches to openly critique books and authors they have never read. The restless ones who keep walking up and down.

It seems like microphones, confined spaces and (sometimes) free wine attracts them, so beware. We can only hope that you are not one of them.
