All dressed up and nowhere to go

Hey, anyone want to invite me to the Bookseller Retail Awards on Thursday? I am polite and entertaining, and scrub up nicely so won't be too much of an eyesore on your table (that a person can only sit at if she has bought or has been given a very expensive ticket). I can laugh in the right places at jokes, and can also talk sensibly about current affairs in publishing and the wider world, as well as strategy and trading tactics. I am moderately indiscreet about things that don't matter too much, so good for low-level gossip. I don't drink much so there will be no messy clearing up at the end of the evening. Oh, and I am bubbly with a GSOH. Reply to box number 766926657 or email me.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
