There's nothing like a book launch to gladden the hearts of authors, particularly in these difficult-to-get-published times.

First time author John O'Keeffe had a packed launch for his debut novel Searching for Ami in Dublin's Royal College of Physicians, attended by Dublin's medical glitterati, family and friends. The hallowed book-lined walls of its library rang with laughter and echoed with chat and reminiscences as wine was drunk and nibbles consumed.

The formality of launch speech was by ombudsperson Emily O'Reilly; publication was by Red Rock Press; the reviews so far are hailing Searching for Ami as  a superb and compelling thriller; it's available in all good bookshops and online.
