Below is a lovely trailer made by my colleague Jen Perrson from The View From Here for my good friend Paul Burman's book The Snowing and Greening of Thomas Passmore which I reviewed late in 2008. Paul is with independent publisher PaperBooks which is part of the Legend Press group. As I'm sure many of you are aware, it's a long, hard process to be published and even when you are in print bringing your work to the masses is no mean feat; especially when the independents have to compete against the might of the mainstream publishers. So I've no doubt Paul was absolutely thrilled to see Jen come up with such a delightful trailer which, I think, captures really well the essence of the book. Have a look and see what you think!
Well done Jen! What a lovely gift for Paul!
Paul's second novel The Grease Monkey's Tale is due to be published in June and I hope to be giving you a full review later in the year. In the meantime, when I've caught up on some outstanding blogs, including a recent trip into London, I will be giving a run down on some of the books I've read over the last few months.
See ya all soon!
