Due to improvements in software, and the necessity of being able to access websites on the move via mobile phones and tablets etc., we have to migrate to a newer format. This means we have call in the builders because the pages will get knocked about a bit in transit. We shall try and minimise the disruption but if you encounter pages that seem a bit, er, all over the place, then please come back a bit later and hopefully they'll be sorted! Thank you for your patience
Yes, they're here... and like all builders they've got big muddy feet... and they're trampling everything underfoot. We're trying our best to put it right, so please bear with us. Techies have been contacted & recruited and have joined the slave task force all toiling to try and sort out this mess... And when we're back on our feet again, we're hoping to have some amazing news for you. Right now, shhhh, it's a secret....
Just surfaced in the Spanish language newspaper, Chris's remarks on the market for ebooks being world-wide.
Biting Duck Press are introducing a new retailers’ “partners” scheme. If you own a business, you can display cards showing book jackets which customers can scan either in-store or later to order ebooks from the publisher. The scan will also include the merchant’s personal code which will generate a percentage from the sale. The full press release can be read HERE which includes contacts.
The Bitingduck Press have announced they are merging with Boson publishers, but hope to continue expanding and developing the Boson imprint. We wish Jay Nadeau and all the team at Bitingduck the best, without forgetting Nancy and David McAllister at CM Online who have worked so diligently establishing Boson since 1994.
You've heard of the song Rock Island Line? A Mighty fine road, it's the road to ride? Well Rock Island is on the border of Iowa & Illinois and is served by the River Cities Reader which ran Chris's comments this month about the internet tearing down the fences of communication. See it HERE
"No more fences," is a line familiar to many Texas readers, and The Gilmer Mirror ran it as a headline to a piece heralding the use of video trailers for Chris's westerns. Click HERE
Can Judith who contacted me about the Bolckow family this week, please contact me again with an alternative email address. My reply has bounced back four times, stating mailbox unavailable. Thanks
For the last... well,
since February last
year I've been working
on a book about Redcar
Jazz Club, culturally a
very important venue in
the North east of England,
whose golden years
coincided with that
golden decade of the 60s.
While we put an astronaut on
the moon who took a small step
for man, but a huge step for mankind, down here we were taking a few steps of our own... Everything in England's youth culture underwent a comprehensive overhaul as teenagers fought, screamed and danced their way out of the drab post-war years. Clothes, music, haircuts, entertainment venues, films... and most of all, attitudes.
