Tunnels

This book still storming up the Amazon uk chart. £3 off a £6.99 book. Good deal. Great sales. Say no more. It's that bloody tipping point isn't it. The one where you think there must be something in it so you go off and buy the book.

For a small firm to publish 20,000 is most extraordinary. The usual is the Potter/Bloomsbury standard of 500. Some confidence.

Speaking as a struggling writer, good luck to the man. But using the Potter connection like this can only work once. He's got a lot riding on the success of this book, and at least one serious reviewer has badly rubbished it - or should I say, the target audience of children said it was rubbish. We shall see. We shall see.

Anything to get a good book read by readers. He sounds the perfect publisher for you. If this one is a success I reckon he might just take you on and do the same for you. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, all the same.
