Strangely efficient


Blimes - I don't know what happened there but I have had a phenomenally efficient day. I planned out what I was going to do for the week, and had it all done by 6pm! Go me. 

So as a treat to myself I ticked one of the things off the 'I'm never going to get around to doing this list'. Here, for your delectation, is a timeline of all the books we've published. It's like a little history of Snowbooks. I like to look at the wide open spaces which signify that we went for months without publishing a single book, and ponder: how the hell did we get this far? I remember [leans on stick, squints into the distance] when we went eight months (Sept 05 - May 06) without receiving a penny in from sales, because we got hit by returns and weren't selling enough to cover the credit notes. How did we get by - with no bank borrowings, overdraft, shareholders or anything? 

I think I will indulge in a little bit of pride, looking back at this. Yey. We made it this far. Yey for us.  


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.
