When you have rubber weapons, winners of art competitions, excited children and an enormous cake, you just know it's going to be a lot of fun. And so it was at Kasper's 4th book launch for Fandri's Adventures.
This book launch was a special one for Kasper because her son, Bailey had helped write the first chapter of the book and gave a splendid speech on why he liked the book.
Fan of the Hunters of Reloria series, Joanne also gave a review of why she liked this book as well as all the others. She came dressed as a Fandri-La fairy, which was very cute.
Kasper announced the winners of the 2016 art competition in a video presentation, and the art from the 2015 art competition was to be seen on the big screen and also in the paperback novel itself.
Check out the pictures here, along with Bailey's fun speech.

Kasper's fantasy books:
My favourite characters are Atesh the female warrior, and also Ciaran, the dragonelle who is her companion. I really enjoyed their relationship and can't wait to hear what will happen in the next instalment.
Well done to Kerry Alexander-Hall for this fantastic new addition to the fantasy genre.
Morphids was published in December, 2016
Book blurb: The Prophet Lailoken sighed. This would be his last vision to share. The last words he would speak. The vice like grip tightened around his heart. Wait a little longer, they must know; remember and prepare. On the world of Cerahya, nature’s harmonious balances and checks have been disturbed; interfered with. She rails against such abhorrent intrusions and struggles to regain order. Unfortunately re-establishing control unleashes deadly, calamitous events on the island continent of Sofala, catching the inhabitants of the western kingdom unaware. The High King, Gareth Beaumont calls for assistance from the Ashmourne Academy of Magic. They respond by sending their infamous 'Pace Alastriona Knights', led by Commander Atesh and Captain Ballard. Their first battalion of magic-enhanced, ale-swilling, knuckle-busting, gag-pulling, sword-dancing, fierce warrior misfits join forces with the King's personal regiment. Together with mystical allies, they race to reduce the fallout to life, love and liberty upon their homeland. As they search for the source behind the malevolent machinations at work, they uncover truths so repugnant, it will send them reeling. Will interpreting the strange riddles and finding the ancient prophecy hold the key to the game of life; playing out before their eyes?
Thanks to eveyone who made it to the book launch today and saw the big unveiling.
Congratulations to everyone who entered the art competition. The quality of work was of a wide variety and so to were the ages of the artists. The judges took age into account and announced the following wonners. Well done.
