Three things

1) Snowsales post is up. 2) Normal women have a dress or nice trousers hanging on the back of the bedroom door to inspire them when they're on a diet. Me, I have red wellingtons. My post-partum legs were too fat to wear them - until now! So I have been tromping around in the snow in lovely red wellies. Most pleasing. 3) I had a cold call from a pre-press company. They cited some fellow publishers who they work for, who I will not mention to spare their blushes. The chap on the phone said 'yeah, they just send us a word doc and we do everything to it then send it to the printer for them.' 'What, everything?' I said. 'Yep; editing, proofing, typesetting, design, the lot.' Astonishng. I wonder what exactly it is that that company does with its time if it's not making books?


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.
