I would like to thank everyone who attended the launch of The Genesis Flaw at Ariel Bookshop on Wednesday night. I couldn’t believe it when I stood on the stage and found 130 people smiling at me. I hear that sales on the night were phenominal and I would like to especially thank the team at Ariel for organising such a succesful event, and Kirsten Galliott for launching me and being such an awesome speaker.
