April 2010 was a month of launches – in all I attended four launches for books that Castle had been involved with: Trial to Triumph (publishing services), Thank You for Being My Father (publishing services), and two launches (one in Auckland and one in Tauranga) for the new Castle book Transformed Lives.
Both launches for Transformed Lives were great. The first was held at the headquarters of Christian Ministries with Disabled Trust (CMWDT) in Auckland. The second was held at Bethlehem Community Church in Tauranga. A lot of the contributors to the book – people who were caught up in the Charismatic Movement during the 1960s and 70s – were there and it was inspirational to meet them face to face.
As part of the exposure for the book, Bev Montgomery (who compiled the book) and two of the other contributors – David Cowie and Ian Garratt – were interviewed on Rhema. You can listen to those interviews here. The following day, Dale Williamson, who wrote her PhD Thesis on the Charismatic Movement, was also interviewed. Her fascinating interview is here.
Below is a picture from the Tauranga launch – Bev Montgomery signs copies of her book, flanked by a number of the contributing authors.

Saturday 24 July was the launch of Anne Perera’s book Thank You for Being My Father, which was produced by Castle Publishing. The event was held at St Ignatius Church in St Heliers, Auckland. It was an amazing gathering – I’ve never been to one like it before. Anne injected plenty of Sri Lankan culture into the event, and there were all kinds of people among the guests.
It’s great to see a product we have worked on engaging with people in this way.
Below is a picture from the event. Left to right: Dr Conrad Perera (Anne’s husband), Anne, Jeff Tebbutt (who designed the cover), Allyson Gofton (food personality and MC for the event), and yours truly (publishing manager for Castle).
