New York calling

Ooh, I do like it here. It's like being at the sea side - the air is all fresh and there are doughnuts. My speech went well, I think, and here's my write up of the event in The Bookseller. Ro is being an utter delight and a charmer and New York has fallen at his feet. Hardened taxi drivers play peep bo with him. Huge doormen tickle his toes. Surly diner staff bring him tiny plates of strawberries on the house. I think we'll come back here.


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.
