We at IFWG Publishing Australia, are very proud of this title, and especially chuffed with the fact that Esme had written this work when she was in her mid-teens – a talented author indeed. Congratulations, Esme!
On Wednesday 29th October, Esme Carpenter offically launched her debut novel Against the Elements in the UK to a small but enthusiastic crowd.
The evening started with a reading of an excerpt from Against the Elements and Esme chatting about the inspirations and themes of the book, and continued with a question and answer session which included conversations about strong female characters, favourite authors, and why teens should read less romance.
Afterwards, she read her short story ‘Azurewrath’ – perfect on the venue’s Hallowe’en open mic night! A cosy evening was had by all and the event was a great success. Thanks to the Sailmakers Arms in Hull for hosting, and to all who came out.
