Boo • 2 May 2007 • The SnowBlog


Boo, I didn't win the young publisher thing. But congrats to Clare C. of The Friday Project who did. Oh well - at least I don't have a hangover as I had to get up early today to get back to London to go to Norwich to launch Sarah's Needle In the Blood - hooray! Also, it means I don't have to be away for a month and a half - which was part of the prize. I'm sure it would have been fascinating, but six weeks in India, when I can't usually find a spare five minutes, would have been a bit of a challenge. Plus I start every plane ride believing that it's going to end in a firey fireball of fire, so hooray on that count too. (I suppose it is possible to read all this as 'don't want no stupid award anyway' bad grace, but I prefer to see it as looking on the bright side.) Anyway, you should get back to work. Gill and I won't get back from Norwich until gone midnight, so more tomorrow.


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.
