Anti-Princess Club book launch

What a whirlwind of a night.

The Anti-Princess Club was officially launched at Mary Ryan’s book shop in Byron Bay (my home town).

SO MANY people were there. Too many for me to speak to properly.

It was a dream come true and I’ll post more when I have the words to do it justice.

In the meantime – here are a load of pics by my talented friend Natalie Grono.
