Book Launch Raises Hundreds for Charity
Wed, 22/02/2012 – 10:18 | by ColinDCCI Members news
The Wessex Autistic Society is delighted to announce it was the recipient of over £250 in funds raised for the Society at the book launch of Catherine Sabatina’s first novel entitled ‘Sweet Jasmine, Cakes and Magic’.
Cat Fowler, who uses her mother’s maiden name of Sabatina as an author, was thrilled with the launch, “I all but sold out of the book on the day and am so pleased people heard about the launch and came along. The book fits into the chick lit/urban fantasy genre and is certain to appeal to anyone who loves the Twilight series, as it takes you on a journey into the life of Adrianna, a young Londoner who possesses magical powers. I am really pleased to have been able to make a sizable donation to the Wessex Autistic Society as a result of the launch and would be thrilled to think I may have inspired others to overcome any barriers in the way of reaching their goals, just as I have with penning my first novel.”
This literary achievement is something of a personal triumph for Cat who suffers from dyslexia and hopes that she can inspire others with the same condition to aim high and achieve their creative potential.
Louise Trott, Community and Events Fundraiser comments, “Over 60 people came along to the launch and the book sold really well. The day was a success for everyone, with vital funds being raised for the Society whilst a new author received well earned exposure and recognition of her hard work and talent.”
‘Sweet Jasmine, Cakes and Magic is priced at £4.99 through Amazon Kindle, and £6.99 paperback through play.com. Catherine can be contacted via her website http://www.catherinesabatina.com
