 THE WOOD FIRE HANDBOOK


Can't understand why 'Norwegian Wood' is a bestseller when we have a home-grown, more authoritative one in VINCENT THURKETTLE'S WOOD FIRE HANDBOOK; THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE PERFECT FIRE. Mitchell Beazley, 2012! Check it out!

 TRADING FUTURES COMING..


Just seen the final proofs of Jim Powell's brilliant new novel coming from Picador in March. It has one of the most striking jackets - a perfect, Magrittish evocation of the book itself and unmissable. And it is going to be Book at Bedtime on Radio 4 in publication week!

 FIRST SIGHT OF RICHARD VAN EMDEN'S 'SOMME'


Second week back in the office and really excited to get a preview of Richard Van Emden's astonishing book on the Somme which will be published ahead of the 100th anniversary of the battle in July this year. To be published by Pen & Sword rather than his regular Bloomsbury, the images are quite extraordinary. Richard has one of the most remarkable archives of photos of the 1914-18 conflict in private hands and I think this book is going to make a huge impact. Richard's cumulative sales are now in excess of 600,000 which is something cheerful to reflect on when people talk about the demise of serious non-fiction.

 A PEACEFUL CHRISTMAS


The agency's last working day of 2015 was celebrated with a deal for Tiddy Rowan's LITTLE BOOK OF PEACE which was sold at auction to Piatkus and will come out in autumn 2016. A fitting end to the year, which has seen so many books published by my exceptionally talented and delightful clients.

Best wishes for a peaceful, happy Christmas and a creative and exciting New Year to all visitors to this site.

 MINDFUL TRAVEL


Just got the advance copy of Tiddy Rowan's new book 'the Little Book of Mindful Travel' which is coming out in the New Year. This is the new volume in the beautiful series published by Quadrille, whose first title LITTLE BOOK OF MINDFULNESS was the second bestselling title of 2014 in the MBS category, selling hundreds of thousands of copies worldwide. The new title is a perfect companion for making the most of the whole experience of travel - positive and negative.
