The Day of the Indies

Here was a pretty cool Christmas pressie: the news that, supported by Arts Council England, a number of independent publishers and independent booksellers chose to include The Snowing and Greening of Thomas Passmore as one of the Pick-of-the-Month titles in their inaugural Exclusively Independent promotion.

Phew! That was a sentence-and-a-half.

This promotion has been featured in articles at two trade posts -- The Bookseller and BookBrunch -- and, in more detail, at Legend Press, who were involved with initiating the project.

Oo that's great!

That was a long sentence wasn't it?The kind you wouldn't want to say if you had no teeth!

Great start to the new year, Paul: congratulations!

And rightly so Mr Burman. Well done on the long sentence and welcome back from your blogging sabbatical - stop leaving your old mate to defend for himself:)!

A great start to the new year mate - hope it's a good one for you!

Paul said...

Cheers, Jane, Jon, Gary and Mike. May the economic recession/gloom/depression be eclipsed by such moments for us all! If the obscenely wealthy no longer buy Lear jets and third and fourth houses, may they buy books instead!

Seems like things just keep getting better and better for ol' Thomas!

Congrats and keep up the great writing!

Wow, that's great news! Congratulations!

I've finally bought a copy of your book, just waiting for it to arrive so I can get straight into reading it!

Paul:

It all sounds so exciting. Here you are promoting your book, and it turns out to be popular. You must feel proud of yourself.

Good luck and...

Happy trails.

Thanks, Madison, Kellie and Swubird, and thanks also, Kellie, for ordering a copy of 'The Snowing and Greening of Thomas Passmore'. I hope you enjoy it. After you've been giving me your work to look at, the tables have finally turned, eh? Should I be nervous?
