Eh? • 11 August 2008 • The SnowBlog


I don't understand this story about a 93 year old who's used her advance to buy a 5 bed house and escape some of her friends from nursing homes. Her book's published by AuthorHouse, a self-publishing business so presumeably not one that pays advances. But the Telegraph (sorry) article linked to above says she bought the house with her advance. Someone explain it to me, please!


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.
