Fermanagh Miscellany 2012 Is Here

I’ve delayed starting my Christmas preparations because I had a book to get to the printers and then a launch to organise. So there’s no decorations up at our house, few gifts bought and no Christmas cards written – don’t tell me the last posting dates. I know!

Launch 2012 6Well, my co-editor, Seamas Mac Annaidh and I checked the print proof a couple weeks ago and Fermanagh Miscellany 2012 went to the printer. A stack of boxes arrived on my doorstep earlier this week and,once I knew we had the books ready, I scrambled to get press releases out and bits and pieces organised so we would have some nibbles at the launch. Everything came together ok and we held the launch today in Enniskillen library.

This year’s anthology is dedicated to retired Bishop of Derry, Dr Edward Daly. He accepted our invitation to attend the launch and he spoke about his fond memories of growing up in County Fermanagh. He has lived a full and varied life and he is still looking forward to more adventures and challenges. There’s a lesson for me there and I hope I will always challenge myself too.

More information about the launch and Fermanagh Miscellany 2012 can be found on Fermanagh Authors’ Association’s blog post today.

This was my fourth time as co-editor of the anthology and I was still excited when the order arrived and I opened the first box of books and held a copy in my hands. So today was definitely a day to celebrate. And I had a great day – but now it may just be time to dig out that Christmas card list…
