Smile - you're on not so candid camera

So yesterday, in our first move for a new publicity campaign championing the very best of Northern Irish writing talent I went to the village of Donaghmore for a photoshoot with fellow authors Emma Heatherington and Fiona Cassidy.
I'm not who is comfortable in front of the camera - the fact that both the other girls are short and thinner than me (Emma is a total vamp, seriously... gorgeous) didn't help. In fact I felt like the BFG in their company.
But the craic was good - we laughed, we talked publishing, we teased each other about our books (Mine is bigger than theirs, just so as you know) and I learned the best lesson of the day.
The photographer was a very lovely man called Jim Hamill and as I tried to suck in my (considerable) belly and complained of same he looked at me, straight faced and said "At the end of the day, it's not about the belly" - and I'm making that my motto from now on, just so as you know.

Anyway - the pics are fab and we Northern girls are ready to take on the world.
Watch this space!
